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.
The adventures of James Spader's jaunty criminal turncoat Red Reddington continue with federal agent Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) digging deeper into her husband's villainous betrayals, baddie Berlin (Peter Stormare) still at large, and the rest of us wondering if — and how — Red and Lizzie are related. Here, Spader assesses the situation and (of course) dodges all spoilers concerning Season 2 of The Blacklist.
Get your daddy theories ready because The Blacklist is back to toy with every one of them.
The NBC crime drama returns for its second season Monday at 10/9c and picks up a few months after the self-styled "concierge of crime" Red Reddington (James Spader) and FBI Special Agent Liz Keen (Megan Boone) agree to continue their odd, ambiguously familial work relationship.
