'The Blacklist': Diego Klattenhoff teases new villains, Agent Ressler's next moves

[Spoilers ahead!]

The FBI has comfortably depended on Raymond Reddington (James Spader) and his insider intel to hunt down members of the Blacklist so far, but in tonight’s episode, Red becomes the target.

Still, Red won’t be facing his enemies alone, says Diego Klattenhoff, who stars on the show as FBI Agent Donald Ressler. Instead, of all people, Ressler — a.k.a. Red’s favorite punching bag — will be forced to protect the criminal mastermind from a possible assassination attempt.

“We have a great turn of events that end up sticking Ressler and Reddington together for a while,” Klattenhoff tells EW, adding that Red may begin to find out more about Ressler’s backstory throughout the ordeal. “Reddington has a few things up his sleeve.” READ FULL STORY

NBC orders full season of 'The Blacklist'

Cross this one off your “will it last?” list.

NBC announced Friday that it has ordered nine more episodes of The Blacklist, the twisty “villain catching villains” procedural starring James Spader. The network had previously ordered 13 episodes of the drama; with this, it has committed to a full 22-episode season.

“The many layers of Red Reddington and his mysterious reasons for getting into bed with the FBI seem to be fascinating to fans of this show,” NBC Entertainment president Salke said in a press release. “With great talent like James Spader and Megan Boone on board, as well our stellar executive producers and the whole cast and crew, we believe this outstanding series will continue to make NBC a big destination on Monday nights.”

Fall TV: Six toughest time slot battles (and which show will win)

It’s war! Next week broadcasters shove the bulk of their new shows into the spotlight and anxiously count how many viewers show up to watch. Even in this era of heavy DVR use, a show’s time slot still matters plenty — just ask NBC’s Revolution, which was hugely boosted whenever it ran behind original episodes of The Voice last season (or any show that runs against The Voice, for that matter). Here are six of the most interesting new top time-period battles this fall — and who we think will win.

'ER' actress joins 'The Blacklist' as series regular

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: READ FULL STORY

NBC's Fall Schedule Announcement: A snap judgement

the-michael-j-fox-show.jpg

You know that a network has stopped taking risks when they start billing Michael J. Fox as their biggest, buzziest star. Yes, the artist formerly known as Alex P. Keaton (and currently know as an Emmy-magnet guest star) will return to NBC this fall, right back where he started with Family Ties, to star in his new sitcom, The Michael J. Fox Show, which kicks off a whole new family-themed Thursday night. That means no more witty, career-minded single ladies and cult-movie-referencing twentysomethings on Must-See TV. (Parks and Recreation is still around, but it’s been moved to the 8:00 PM sudden-death time slot, opposite The Big Bang Theory.) Instead, we get Fox, alongside the blended-family comedy Welcome to the Family, and Sean Hayes starring as a divorced gay dad on Sean Saves the World, all capped off with an hour of Parenthood. Aiming squarely down the middle of American brows this year, NBC is also bringing back some recognizable faces from decades past (Fox! Blair Underwood for Ironside! James Spader for The Blacklist!), along with a certain brand of comedy that hasn’t changed much since that time. You want jokes about parents tricking their kids into eating vegetables? You’ve got it! You want something a little edgier? Go watch AMC.













THE MICHAEL J FOX SHOW
The good news? Michael J. Fox’s new show comes from writer/executive producer Sam Laybourne (Cougar Town) and co-stars the great Betsy Brandt, who brings such sad and funny suffering-wife pathos to the role of Marie on Breaking Bad. The bad news? Despite the fact that it was inspired by Fox’s real-life battle with Parkinson’s, it looks like any other bland, what-is-this-family-coming-to-if-we-can’t-sit-down-to-eat-dinner-together? comedy, and the teaser clip just isn’t that funny. Be warned: there will be kale jokes.
