‘The Blacklist’ season 2 spoilers: ‘House of Cards’ actress joins as regular
After the surprising death of one regular during the season 1 finale of “The Blacklist,” you’d figure that there would be someone else hired as a de facto replacement. Now, we know specifically who that someone is.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, former “House of Cards” actress Mozhan Marnò has been signed to play Tamar Katzman, a former Mossad agent and also expert spy who chooses to battle James Spader’s Raymond Reddington in some capacity. Does anyone else find it funny that we hear way more about Mossad agents on this show than we do in real life?
There isn’t a whole lot else known about this role just yet, but it’s nice to see now for sure that filming is starting to ramp up a little bit for the NBC show. Comic-Con is now over, which means that Spader can settle back into his work schedule in New York … which includes tackling some big stories. We assume that Berlin is coming back, and we still feel the same way about Tom Keen. We understand that killing him off would be a huge “shock” moment for the show, but just remember here that having him as a part of the cast gives you more opportunities to pay off everything that you’ve built up to this point.
The new season of “The Blacklist” will grace NBC starting on Monday, September 22, and we’ll have further updates on casting as the summer progresses.
What do you think about this casting? Let us know now in the comments.

What about story lines for the series regulars? What can we expect from Harry Lennix and Diego Klattenhoff? Everyone is so concerned about “new” characters; I want to see more and learn more about the ones that already existed. I’m tired of seeing talented actors like Lennix and Klattenhoff play these one-dimensional FBI puppets of Reddington. When are you going to explore and reveal more about them and their relationship with Reddington? I hope you don’t get so wrapped up in “new” characters that you forget about the ones that made Blacklist a wonderful show in the first place. You have a great opportunity to make this show even better by having the audience invested with the entire ensemble of characters rather than just one. I don’t think you should be concerned about introducing so many new characters until you’ve fully developed the ones you have.
