Uzo Aduba plays fan-favorite Crazy Eyes on Orange is the New Black, but a new video from Funny or Die asks the question: what would it look like if she played every part on the show?
There's so much brilliance packed into this 3-minute clip that it's hard to pick a favorite highlight, but for us, it doesn't get much better than Aduba slipping into a Lil Wayne impression while trying out for the part of Poussey.
