Boston Legal and The Office star James Spader's return to television
The Blacklist centers on Red, the world's most wanted criminal, played by Boston Legal star James Spader. When the former Army intelligence officer suddenly turns himself in and offers to give up everyone he ever worked with, mouths in the FBI office stand ajar. But Red has one condition: he'll only work with newly minted FBI agent, Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) with whom he apparenly has no connection. What is the criminal facilitator up to?
The Blacklist marks a return to television for James Spader who gave a critically acclaimed performance in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln. Spader most famously headlined David E. Kelley's courtroom dramedy Boston Legal on FOX.
