NBC Renews THE BLACKLIST for 22-Episode Second Season

by     Posted 137 days ago

the-blacklist-slice

Plenty of pilots don’t get picked up for an order, and plenty of pilots that make it to air don’t get past a first season, or even to midseason.  The Blacklist is not one of those shows.  There have been quite a few breakout series this year, and NBC is picking up their procedural-thriller for a full second season.  For those who are unfamiliar with the show, it stars James Spader as Raymond Reddington, a notorious international criminal who inexplicably turns himself in, and offers the FBI a blacklist of assassins, terrorists, and other baddies.  His one request is working with profiler Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone), whose husband (Ryan Eggold) may not be the trusting, loving partner he appears to be.  The conspiracy swirling around Reddington and Keen motives provides a constant thread, and the weekly crimes can be surprisingly dark (one episode this year had a guy releasing a chemical on a crowded subway car, which killed everyone including a kid).  I don’t usually go for network shows, but The Blacklist is a surprisingly compelling watch, and I recommend you check it out.

Hit the jump for the press release.  The Blacklist just had its fall finale and will return on January 13th.

Harry Lennix Talks THE BLACKLIST, Joining the Series, Facing off with James Spader, Character Backstory, and Announcing BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN at Comic-Con

by     Posted 138 days ago

harry-lennix-the-blacklist-interview-slice

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.
