First Look: Paul Reubens Is Definitely Not Pee-Wee Herman on NBC's The Blacklist

Paul Reubens — the actor sometimes known as Pee-Wee Herman — joins NBC's The Blacklist for at least two episodes next month, and TV Guide Magazine has the first look at his character.

Reubens plays Mr. Vargas, a mysterious fixer for the underground criminal world. He first appears in the episode "Dr. Linus Creel," which airs on Monday, Oct. 6 at 10/9c. In the episode, Red (James Spader) warns Liz (Megan Boone) that a social-psychological experiment may be behind a series of killings at the hands of seemingly nonviolent people.
