James Spader is getting more company on NBC’s promising thriller The Blacklist.
Parminder Kaur Nagra is joining the show as a series regular, playing FBI agent Margot Malik. The ER, Bend It Like Beckham and Alcatraz actress will play an experienced agent who mentors rookie Liz (Megan Boone). She’s described as a “brash, funny and overt” with a husband and two young kids. She “would rather be smart than pretty and her confidence is exactly why men love her and women adore her.”
The Blacklist debuts on NBC this fall on Sept. 23 following the fifth-season two-hour premiere of The Voice. Here’s the trailer:
