It is midnight in Malaysia, and the tingle-inducing tones of Hollywood actor James Spader’s voice are snaking their way through the phone line. Depending on one’s pop culture diet, it is impossible not to imagine that it could be Red Reddington, Alan Shore or even Ultron on the other end. Read More: // here

As everyone gets set for a new episode of The Blacklist tonight I couldn’t help but start thinking about the career of James Spader.

If you’ve never watched “The Blacklist”, you’re missing out on one of the most intriguing shows on TV today. On the show, Raymond “Red” Reddington is the anti-hero, a wanted fugitive, former secret agent, and a brilliant man with his fingers in innumerable illegal, (OK maybe some of them might be legal), goings-on all over the world. The character is played flawlessly by James Spader. You may remember James from things like “Sex Lies & Videotape”, “Stargate”, “The Practice”, “Boston Legal”, “Less Than Zero”, “Pretty in Pink”, “Crash”, “White Palace”, “Secretary”, and as the smarmy lawyer in “Wall Street”. Rolling Stone calls him “The Strangest Man on TV” and well he may be, but that’s what is so exciting about his character. He has certain affectations that simply are Red. Some are strange, some are endearing, but all are unforgettable. Read More: // here
