In the mid-season finale of the hit NBC drama series The Blacklist, which also just happens to be Pt. 2 of the story of “Anslo Garrick,” Liz Keen (Megan Boone) disarms the signal jammers to call in back-up, but runs into trouble along the way. Meanwhile the fate of Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) hangs in the balance as Red (James Spader) tries to bargain with Anslo Garrick (guest star Richie Coster).
During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Harry Lennix (who plays FBI Agent Harold Cooper) talked about how he came to be a part of The Blacklist, how much fun it is to face off with actor James Spader, how much of Harold Cooper’s backstory he knows, deciding how he wanted to play this character, how he thinks Harold Cooper feels about Elizabeth Keen, and whether he’d like to get out in the field more. He also talked about the surreal experience of announcing the Superman/Batman movie at this past year’s Comic-Con, and his hopes that he’ll have some involvement in the film (he played General Swanwick in Man of Steel). Check out what he had to say after the jump.
