Pablo Schreiber is officially out of Orange is the New Black Season 3.

The actor behind Pornstache told The New York Post this week that he won’t be “taking part in the third season” because he has a starring role in HBO's The Brink.

"It's a half-hour comedy with Jack Black and Tim Robbins and me [as] the three leads. I'm really excited about it," Schreiber told the newspaper.

Schreiber said his decision to depart the Netflix series wasn't a difficult one to make.

"I was never a series regular on Orange Is The New Black. I was always a guest star," he sayd. "The role that I have on The Brink is a starring role, and it's a no brainer. Absolutely, I chose to jump on board with that show. It was a better move for me as an actor."

Might Mendez return at some point?

Schreiber says he’d gladly work on a future season of the series of really on any “project” creator Jenji Kohan has in ind for him.
