Michael J. Harney
Character Name: Sam Healy
Story: A correctional officer and counselor to any inmate willing to talk, Healy manages Piper's case. He harbors a personal hatred for lesbians and those who engage in lesbian activity. Passive-aggressive in nature, Healy can be a schmuck who can be easily led astray.
Why His Character Rocks: Fans of Jenji Kohan will recognize Michael J. Harney from his work on Weeds. As the prison's correctional officer and counselor, his hilarious quips to the inmates, Healy's witch hunt for lesbians drives the conflict between multiple characters. His own marriage to a Ukrainian immigrant is also an extra source of laughs.
