Ellen Pompeo shared a picture of members of the Grey’s Anatomy cast imitating members of the cast of Netflix’s hit series Orange is the New Black.
Grey's Anatomy Meets Orange is the New Black
Pompeo posted the snap on her WhoSay account, captioning it, “Blue is the new black #8daystillgreys.”
For the picture, Pompeo appeared to channel Orange character Trisha Miller (who was played by Madeline Brewer), rocking her light brown hair in cornrows and showing some attitude with her arms crossed over her chest. Sara Ramirez, who plays Callie on the hit medical drama, did her best Alex (Laura Prepon) impression with thick-rimmed black glasses and a tattoo exposed on her upper arm.
Pompeo, who plays Meredith Grey in the series, and Ramirez were joined in the photograph by four extras. One of the women who jumped into the shot wore her hair like Suzanne aka Crazy Eyes, who is played by Uzo Aduba on the show. The others seemed to be going for supporting characters Sam Healy (Michael Harney), Flaca (Jackie Cruz) and Big Boo (Lea DeLaria).
Among those who appreciated the Grey’s cast’s playful snap was Scandal star Kerry Washington, who called it, “UH. MAY. ZING.” Camilla Luddington, who plays Jo on Grey’s, was also a huge fan of the picture, and Jessica Capshaw thought it was “genius.”

In case Grey's fans were wondering how Pompeo’s hair looked once she took out the cornrows, she provided a morning selfie of the frizzy aftermath set to the sound of Beyonce’s “I Woke Up Like This.”
