Cal Chapman is Piper Chapman's younger brother, and the son of Carol and Bill Chapman. He is portrayed by Michael Chernus.


Cal and Piper's parents long favored the high-achieving, older brother Danny while letting Cal become a sarcastic, underachieving slacker. Since Piper's incarceration, their parents have begun expecting more of him, much to his dismay.

He is friends with Larry, who, during season one and two, often visits him at his trailer in the middle of nowhere, which he eventually shares with his hippie girlfriend (and later fiancée and wife) Neri.

He and Neri marry at his grandmother Celeste's funeral for all of his family to see, including Piper (who is on furlough) ("40 OZ of Furlough").

In season three he and Neri assist Piper in her panty business by selling them online.

In season four he tells Piper that Neri and he are expecting a baby. He also tells her about their new business shipping vintage clothing to Korea.
