If you think you're a hardcore "Orange Is the New Black" fan, step aside.

Comedian and actress Rosie O'Donnell is maybe the biggest "OITNB" super fan, so much so that she'd even even let the writers kill her off if she could have a cameo on the show. At the black carpet (yes, it was black) premiere of Season 2 of Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black," O'Donnell made an appearance and expressed her love for the show and cast. "This is the best female ensemble ever on TV!" O'Donnell said.

When asked if she would be guest starring in the new season, O'Donnell said, "I begged. After I saw the first two episodes, I'm like 'Who do I call?' Let me get knifed in a shower -- someone give me a part on this.” If O'Donnell were sentenced behind bars in the show, we bet she could definitely hold her own.

While the comedian was thrilled to be at the premiere, she wasn't the most excited person on the carpet. Uzo Adoba, who plays Crazy Eyes, had a pretty big freakout moment when she saw O'Donnell. Lucky for us, Natasha Lyonne snapped some photos of it for Instagram.

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