Lorraine Toussaint is coming to "Orange Is the New Black" Season 2, and details about her character Vee have been very sparse, but we got Toussaint to dish a bit more at PaleyFest 2014.

"I'm wearing red for Red," Toussaint said with a smile, doing her best Red (Kate Mulgrew) accent. So what is their connection? Fans have seen one of the first Season 2 images with them going head-to-head (above). Here's more backstory:

"Katie and I are old friends, and Red and Vee are old friends, shall we say," Toussaint teased. "They certainly play in the sandbox well, and sometimes not so well, and sometimes they get a little spanky, and sometimes they have to have a little time-out. You know — kids!"

"Orange Is the New Black" Season 2 premieres June 6 on Netflix.
