Pitman knows Madeline Brewer as a golden girl with a silvery soprano. But in the new Netflix series "Orange is the New Black," little "Maddie" Brewer plays a jailbird with a girlfriend, a neck tattoo, and a heroin habit.

Pitman, N.J.'s own Madeline Brewer, who played cornrowed Tricia on "Orange is the New Black," just landed a role on the second season of Netflix's horror series "Hemlock Grove."

According to Deadline, Brewer will, "recur as a graphic novelist entering the town." From the mind of Eli Roth, "Hemlock Grove" centers on a rural Pennsylvania town.

Brewer brought great pathos to drug-addicted homeless thief in her first onscreen role. "I never saw [Tricia] in a bad light, I never saw her as a hardened criminal," Brewer told me when we chatted in August. She was just a person who made some bad decisions. That’s true for a lot of people, and a lot of people behind bars. That doesn’t alter who they are as a person. They just screwed up somewhere along the way and they’re paying for it."
