*Harry Lennix and Ilfenesh Hadera have joined the NBC/Sony TV drama pilot “The Blacklist,” which centers on Red (James Spader), the world’s most wanted criminal who mysteriously turns himself in and offers to give up everyone he has ever worked with.
His only condition is he will only work with a newly minted FBI agent, Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone), with whom he seemingly has no connection.
Lennix will play Harold Cooper, the successful yet cynical Assistant Director of Counterterrorism at the FBI. Hadera will suit up as FBI Agent Jennifer Palmer, who is Elizabeth’s best friend.
Lennix will next be seen in “Man Of Steel” and indie “Mr. Sophistication,” which he stars in and produced.
