James Spader took this ‘The Blacklist’ star under his wing, proving that he is just as charming as ‘Red.’
James Spader, the primary character on NBC’s The Blacklist, is mainly responsible for the show’s popularity. Raymond “Red” Reddington, played by Spader, is equal parts terrifying criminal genius and charming charmer as the FBI’s Most Wanted fugitive. A celebrity’s reputation usually precedes them. Spader’s reputation, on the other hand, is a little murkier. While some may find the star frightening, one fellow Blacklister extols his virtues.
James Spader intimidates former co-stars.
Season 8 fans of ‘The Blacklist’ believe the old Reddington theory still holds water.
It’s understandable that some people are afraid of Spader when he enters into a room, given his level of achievement over the last few decades. Spader’s performance in The Blacklist is typical of the actor, who is known for films such as Pretty in Pink, The Practice, and Boston Legal. Some of the icon’s past co-stars have previously expressed their feelings about working with him.
In 2011, Creed Bratton of The Office told E! News, “He’s terrifying.” “But Creed has been around for a long time, and he probably has a dead guy in his trunk, so he won’t be terrified for long. Personally, I believe Creed should be in charge because who would have the audacity to fire him?”
Ellie Kemper, who played Erin Hannon, was similarly concerned with Spader’s portrayal of the enigmatic Robert California. Brian Baumgarner described him as “terrifying,” while she remarked, “I just hope he doesn’t disappoint me personally.”
Spader made an impression on his co-stars in Avengers: Age of Ultron. During the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, Captain America’s Chris Evans described Spader as “intimidating.”
“Have you met him?” I inquire. It feels like he’s staring into your soul just having a discussion with him,” Evans remarked. “He’s just a very present person and he has a beautiful speech pattern and he’s kind of perfect for a Marvel villain.”
Spader clearly has an air about him. One of The Blacklist’s stars is praising him.
