Baby got guilt? Alan Aisenberg, who portrays Baxter “Gerber” Bayley, says that he’s conflicted about his character’s actions in the latest season of Orange:
“He [Bayley] made a mistake, and I’m really conflicted, but I feel for him.”
Aisenberg told The Hollywood Reporter,
“I was so convinced that 95% of what I was going to get was going to be negative, and I’d say it’s about 5-10%.”
Aisenberg also expressed how honored he feels to be a part of a show that has stirred national conversations about the Black Lives Matter movement. Though he is just a “small cog” in the machine of the conversation, he is glad that his work is having such widespread impact.
At the end of the day, Aisenberg is just happy that he can walk into a bar without getting a beer bottle “thrown in [his] face.”
