Uzo Aduba has had plenty of creepy moments playing Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on Netflix's “Orange is the New Black,” but she's never been as throat-clutchingly scary as she is in this clip from Glamour magazine, where she recreates Anthony Hopkins' famed “fava beans and chianti” speech from “The Silence of the Lambs”:

Aduba nails the sinister, erudite line readings required for the role of the sociopathic cannibal, and her rendition of the climactic “f-f-f-f-f” moment is arguably more chilling than Hopkins'. Can a gender-and-color-blind remake be far behind? I'm already picturing her in that three-pronged wire cage mask.
