Obviously there's no established protocol in the rock world for these things, but Pussy Riot's first move after filing suit against the Russian government for human rights violations is surprisingly lighthearted one: They're appearing on a Netflix original series.

No, the former prison inmates aren't joining the cast of Orange Is the New Black -- they're making a special guest appearance on House of Cards. Two separate, anonymous sources confirmed to Baltimore's City Paper that Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova will appear in season three of the Kevin Spacey drama.

But will they play themselves, or vaguely masked fictionalized versions of themselves? Only time (or more anonymous tipsters on set in Baltimore) will tell.
