NBC has found its spy guy.
After fielding multiple offers this pilot season, James Spader has been tapped to star in the network's psychological drama thriller The Blacklist, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The pilot revolves around Raymond "Red" Reddington, the world's most-wanted criminal who mysteriously turns himself in and offers to give up everyone he has ever worked with. His only condition is he will only work with a newly minted FBI agent Liz Keen (Blue Bloods' Megan Boone) with whom he seemingly has no connection.
