There may be a Crossroads cast reunion coming to TV very soon -- at least if Taryn Manning has control, that is.
ET's Leanne Aguilera caught up with the Orange is the New Black star on the red carpet at the 2015 Emmys Sunday in Los Angeles, California, where she gushed about her Crossroads co-star Britney Spears.
Given the fact that Spears is heading back to TV for a guest stint on Jane the Virgin, we wanted to know if Manning could envision the pop superstar locked up in Litchfield Penitentiary.
"Of course, I want Britney Spears everywhere you can see her," the 36-year-old actress replied. "She's the best."
So if Spears were to appear on an episode of OITNB, exactly what kind of character would she play on the Netflix series?
"Um, I mean, I don't have to make up a character -- she's such a good actor that I feel like they could do anything with her," Manning said. "I was so impressed working with her I was like -- she's just very sincere in her acting, you know? It's like everyone wanted to maybe hope that she's not gonna be good but she was great."
Manning also told ET that while the cameras were off, she forced Spears to sing for her on set.
"There's a very specific day [that stands out to me when I look back on the movie] -- I was like 'Sing, sing for me,' right? 'Cause everyone is like she can't sing. So I was like 'Sing for me,' I knew she could -- she sang the National Anthem for me in the car -- for us -- and it was the most perfect thing I've ever heard and for anybody who thinks she can't sing -- she can sing like an angel."
Along with actress Zoe Saldana, Manning and Spears starred in the 2002 film about three childhood friends who, after eight years apart, take a random road trip with a guy they just met in hopes of finding themselves and rediscovering their friendship.
Manning wasn't the only one to express her love for the 33-year-old singer on the carpet, however. Watch the video below to see Gina Rodriguez chat about Spears' upcoming guest appearance on Jane the Virgin.
