Jennifer Ehle, Zach Grenier to Guest Star on NBC's THE BLACKLIST
Jennifer Ehle and Zach Grenier are headed to THE BLACKLIST.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, both have landed guest starring roles on NBC's hit fresman drama, starring James Spader.
The pair will appear in the upcoming thirteenth episode.
Ehle will "play Madeline Pratt, the second female "Blacklister" and is described as a formidable businesswoman who has a past with Red Reddington (Spader)."
THE GOOD WIFE's Grenier "will drop by as Novak, who works under the front of a taxidermy workshop but actually deals with an underworld of rare and exotic antiques."
For decades, ex-government agent Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader, "The Office," "Boston Legal") has been one of the FBI's Most Wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as "The Concierge of Crime." Now, he's mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth "Liz" Keen (Megan Boone, "Law & Order: Los Angeles"), an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it's going to be one hell of a first day on the job. What follows is a twisting series of events as the race to stop a terrorist begins. What are Red's true intentions? Why has he chosen Liz, a woman with whom he seemingly has no connection? Does Liz have secrets of her own? Zamani is only the first of many on a list that Red has compiled over the years: a "blacklist" of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. He will help catch them all... with the caveat that Liz continues to work as his partner. Red will teach Liz to think like a criminal and "see the bigger picture"... whether she wants to or not. Also starring are Diego Klattenhoff ("Homeland"), Harry Lennix ("Man of Steel") and Ryan Eggold ("90210").
Jon Bokenkamp ("The Call," "Taking Lives"), John Eisendrath ("Alias"), John Davis ("Predator," "I, Robot," "Chronicle") and John FOX serve as executive producers. The pilot was directed by Joe Carnahan ("The A-Team," "The Grey"). "The Blacklist" is a production of Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment.
