Believe it or not, James Spader was not in costume as a giant silver, self-aware robot while on set for “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” However, he was on set. And Marvel has just released the behind-the-scenes footage to prove it. It’s bonkers. Read More: // here

No matter what you thought of Avengers: Age of Ultron, there’s no arguing the perfect casting of James Spader as Ultron. Even though he’s playing a 9-foot-tall robot, the character still had that perfect, Spader smugness to him and it worked incredibly well. Marvel has now released a new behind the scenes featurette for Avengers: Age of Ultron and though the focus is supposed to be the Twins, played by Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the real highlight is Spader. He’s in a full motion capture body suit with a several foot high light above his head for the actors to look at. And just like Olsen says in the video, no matter what light you’re supposed to look at, it’s hard to take your eyes of Spader. He looks completely and utterly ridiculous. But also, totally in control and cool. It’s a sight to see. Read More: // here

We Count Down Our Top Ten Of Characters We Love To Hate
It seems audiences have become fatigued by predictable protagonists and in response, multi-series television has given rise to an alluring alternative. The anti-hero is a complex, multi-layered character with significant moral shading, their often outright criminal actions and questionable behaviour made compellingly watchable by their recognisably human traits, such as self-doubt, a nagging conscience, a tragic backstory or their unshaken belief that the end justifies the means. James Spader is no stranger to compelling turns as the appealing antagonist, and his role as Raymond “Red” Reddington in ‘The Blacklist’ might be his best yet. To celebrate Red’s endearingly ambiguous villainy in the second season out now on DVD and Blu-Ray, we’ve reflected on other roles that nail this complex combination, counting down our top ten of TV anti-heroism…

6: Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington – The Blacklist
One of the most recent additions to TV’s growing roster of anti-heroes is ‘The Blacklist’s Red Reddington, expertly portrayed by James Spader, who’s no stranger to playing morally ambiguous characters. Reddington is a former government agent turned elusive high-profile criminal, who voluntarily surrenders to the FBI, offering to cooperate on capturing a list of dangerous criminals. The hook is that Reddington insists he’ll only work with rookie profiler Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) and the continuing mystery of their connection, coupled with Spader’s suave, witty and eminently slippery performance is a huge part of the show’s appeal.

“The Blacklist” is on the Gold Coast. For a two-day shoot Monday and Tuesday, the NBC drama starring James Spader and Megan Boone is turning the venerable Youngs Farm of Old Brookville into a trio of Iowa locations. The main farm stand on Hegemans Lane is being dressed to look like a hardware store, one of the barns will impersonate a feed-storage facility and “the roads surrounding the farm will be the site of a police checkpoint and a car-and-foot chase on the show,” says a spokeswoman for Sony Pictures Television, a producer of the show along with Davis Entertainment.

Looking to make a bigger splash with its “Heroes” reboot, NBC announced on Thursday that the show’s premiere has been expanded to two hours. As a result, “The Blacklist” will now bow one week later. “Heroes Reborn” will air from 8 to 10 p.m. on Sept. 24. It will be followed at 10 p.m. by the series premiere of “The Player,” starring Wesley Snipes. James Spader drama “The Blacklist” will kick off its third season on Oct. 1 at 9 p.m., allowing it to avoid a head-to-head collision with the season premiere of ABC’s “Scandal,” which makes its return on Sept. 24.
