‘Orange is the New Black’ Actor Pablo Schreiber Joins Michael Bay’s ’13 Hours’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Pablo Schreiber is in final negotiations to join John Krasinski in Michael Bay’s Benghazi thriller “13 Hours.”

Paramount is distributing the pic which recounts the attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya, on the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11.

Schreiber will play one of the members of the six-man security team that fought to defend the many Americans stationed at the compound. Paramount had no comment.

Chuck Hogan penned the script based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s book “Thirteen Hours: A Firsthand Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi,” to which Paramount acquired rights in February before it was published. Erwin Stoff produces through 3 Arts Entertainment’s production shingle.

Plan is to go into production this spring.

Schreiber broke out with a strong recurring role on the second season of “The Wire” and “Weeds” before getting the role of prison guard George “Pornstache” Mendez on Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black.” “13 Hours” would mark his strongest film role to date.

Coming off the latest season of “Orange is the New Black,” Schreiber can be seen next in the HBO drama “The Brink.” He is repped by ICM Partners and Circle of Confusion.
