New York, NY (PRWEB) March 17, 2013
WhoHasTheRemote.com announced its Artist of the Week award, granted to actors that have had lengthy careers, and despite never attaining household name status, have ultimately become familiar to film, television, and dish internet audiences through recognizable roles. This week’s award was given to James Spader, who has just been inked for The Blacklist, an upcoming crime/suspense drama on NBC, according to a recent quote in The Wrap.
Recognized by audiences for his foreboding stare and subtly abrasive onscreen demeanor, Spader boasts a lengthy resume of supportive roles going back to the early 1980s. For more than a decade he appeared in mostly shady roles, from the drug dealer in Less Than Zero (1987) to the voyeur in Sex, Lies and Videotape (1989). Gen Xers probably remember him best as Steff, the mischievous schemer who sets Andrew McCarthy’s Blaine character wrong in the 1986 teen dramedy classic Pretty In Pink.
Following a 1997 appearance on the wildly popular Seinfeld, Spader turned his attention to the small screen. In 2003, he signed on for David E. Kelley’s ABC courtroom drama The Practice for the last of its eight seasons. The following year, Spader commenced a five-season run in another Kelly courtroom drama, Boston Legal. In his latest turn at TV drama, Spader will play an ex-criminal turned FBI informant. According to The Wrap, his character in The Blacklist will be that of a “facilitator, brokering ideas for criminals,” driven only by “allegiance to the highest bidder.”
