The Blacklist is bringing in some heavy hitters to guest star in its two part installment. The first part, The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 9 will air immediately following the Super Bowl.
David Strathairn and Janel Moloney will be in the first hour while Gloria Reuben will be gracing the second part.
According to EW, Strathairn will join in the recurring role of "The Director," a super secret and ultra powerful leader of the US National Clandestine Service. His true identity will only be known by the highest levels of the agency (as if we would have it any other way).
Moloney will play Kat Goodson, The Director's assistant who will pay a visit to "The Post Office" to try to glean more information about the team's relationship with Red Reddington.
Finally, Reuben will be guesting as Dr. Selma Orchard. Her specialty? Retrieving subconscious memories. The baddie of the installment, Luther Braxton (Ron Perlman), puts in a special request for her. Talk about going the extra mile!
Who cares about the Super Bowl, right?! We're all about catching the first part of this drama on Sunday, February 1 and then latching onto the second hour when The Blacklist returns on its new night, Thursday, February 5.
