The Blacklist spin-off has added another member to its cast. According to TV Line, the big bag from the original The Blacklist will play a big role in the NBC spin-off. Edi Gathegi plays Mr. Solomon on the series.
It was announced earlier this week that Famke Janssen will star on the spin-off, which will have a backdoor pilot on the May 12 episode of the series.
TV Line also revealed that Ryan Eggold will play a part on the spin-off. It has been speculated that Janssen’s character will be his character’s mother.
This spin-off has not yet been given a series order yet. NBC will decide on the fate of the spin-off in May. Do you want the spin-off to move forward? Will you watch? Tell us what you think.
The Blacklist has grown into an engaging and compelling drama. The spinoff will need a bit of a different angle to be relevant ( why just give more of the same )??
Once it is revealed that Reddington ( the wonderful scene chewer James Spader ) is – and has always been – undercover for CIA or Naval Intelligence , the spinoff could center around the fallout and/or entire network of undercover “good guys”.
I think Edi will be amazing in the spin-off. I love how he can play both good guy and bad guy in his acting roles. He was Dr. Zed in Proof, which i really miss and he is scary as Mathias in Blacklist.
