Norm Lewis Set To Appear On THE BLACKLISTBroadway headliner and rising screen presence Norm LEWIS will be lending his copious skills to hit NBC thriller series THE BLACKLIST this season according to a new report.

An official TV Guide scoop confirming his casting is as follows: "How about some exclusive casting news? Tony-nominated Broadway veteran Norm Lewis - who is currently starring in the title role of The Phantom of the Opera and did a stint last season on Scandal - has been tapped to play J.P. Laskin, a business associate of Red's who doesn't exactly agree with his recent moves in the ongoing war with Berlin. In fact, I hear Laskin may even be tempted to switch sides. Of course, once Red finds out about the betrayal, he'll probably make the choice for him. Perhaps playing a "phantom" will come in handy! "

Check out the original article on the matter here.

Of note, LEWIS recently appeared in a recurring arc on ABC's hit series SCANDAL and currently stars in the title role of Broadway's longest-running musical of all time, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA.
