Orange you wondering why Ellen Pompeo looks like a felon?

To promote the Sept. 25 return of Grey's Anatomy on ABC, the actress and a few of her Seattle Grace cohorts spoofed the Netflix hit Orange Is the New Black for a photo on her WhoSay page.

"Blue is the new black," wrote Pompeo.

Pompeo, 44, who rocks a mean head of cornrows, is joined in the picture by costar Sara Ramirez. The rest are background actors who work on the medical drama, which is about to begin its 11th season.

Pompeo, who recently said she may move beyond acting after Grey's, also took to Twitter to explain the reason she spoofed OITNB.

"If they don't [watch] they should those girls are giving it," she said of TV viewers.

Note to Crazy Eyes: Now's the time to book that guest role as a patient!
