blacklist casting

Adam Lambert was seriously the best part of the Rocky Horror remake for one reason:

He was offered the lead role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter and turned it down because the character is gender queer and he felt it was wrong for him, a cis man, to accept the role when there are fantastic gender queer actors out there who could and would represent this character better.

So, yeah, Adam Lambert, you won the Rocky Horror remake and I have insane amounts of respect for you.

EXCLUSIVE: Enrique Murciano has been tapped as a major new cast addition on NBC’s drama series The Blacklist, from Sony TV and Davis Entertainment. The Without a Trace alum has joined the thriller drama for the last five episodes of the current fourth season with an option to be a series regular next season, pending renewal.

Marciano will play Julian Gale, an FBI investigator and Ressler’s (Diego Klattenhoff) former colleague, whose obsessive tendencies make him both a valuable agent and a potential liability.  Dedicated, driven and possessed of a quiet charisma, he can command a room or a crime scene without uttering a word. And yet, his new assignment puts him in danger of losing himself.

The Blacklist could use some cast reinforcement as one of the original series regulars, Ryan Eggold, is transitioning to topline spinoff series The Blacklist: Redemption.

The Blacklist’s casting keeps Murciano in the Sony TV family, coming off a co-starring role on the studio’s Netflix drama series Bloodline.

Murciano also recently recurred on Starz’s Power and did features Bright for Netflix and David Ayer and Rock that Body for Columbia. He is repped by Gersh and Management 360.

(Thank you @2redpyewackets!  Ressler’s former colleague!?! I like the sound of this!)

Mr. Ehrenreich is suddenly being discussed all over Hollywood, as trade papers and gossip columns on both coasts trumpeted this week that he has landed the role of Star Wars’ Han Solo in the coming Solo standalone movie, scheduled for 2018, rumors of which have circulated for weeks. When asked, Mr. Ehrenreich said he could not say anything about it, though he did cop to being a Star Wars fan. (“Who isn’t?” he said. Star Wars vs. Star Trek? “Probably both.”)
