Continuing its tradition of casting fantastic actors in killer guest spots, The Blacklist has landed yet another — Law & Order and Vikings vet Linus Roache — for one of the first season's final episodes.
TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively that Roache will pop up in a few weeks as the Kingmaker, described as "an extremely dangerous and influential man with political ties around the world" who "manipulates democracy to his own ends and is an expert at political assassination." A bloodstained résumé like this clearly scores the guy a place on Red's ongoing roster of baddies, but how the two men are connected remains to be seen. Then again, how Red is connected to anyone on this crafty little show is still a mystery, which is part of the fun, right?
What do you think of Roache coming to The Blacklist?
