On Friday, we’ll talk with Pablo Schreiber about his pair of nefarious TV roles: George “Pornstache” Mendez on the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black,” and recurring villain William Lewis on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” Join us for our live chat on June 6, at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET on Gold Derby’s home page.
Pornstache, so called because of his signature facial hair, is a corrections officer at Litchfield Prison, but he’s at least as corrupt as the women he’s guarding. During season one he smuggled drugs and covered up a deadly overdose.
And William Lewis on “Law & Order: SVU” is arguably even more sinister. Introduced at the end of season 14, Lewis left a trail of victims – including a kidnapped and terrorized Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) – before his dramatic exit in season 15, when he killed himself as a final vindictive act against Detective Benson.
Schreiber will be listed on the Emmy nominations ballot for both roles: Drama Guest Actor for “SVU” and Comedy Guest Actor for “Orange.” Will he be nominated for both? Make your predictions below, and come back Friday for our live chat.
