The Blacklist taps Aldis Hodge as new bad guy

Posted on

Aldis Hodge is heading to The Blacklist!

EW has learned exclusively that the Underground and Hidden Figures actor will guest-star on the NBC drama in an episode slated for May.

Hodge will play Mario Dixon, a high-end thief with uncommon tastes. He’s on the FBI’s Most Wanted list for stealing luxury items, but with his powerful physique and violent tendencies, he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. Though he’s not technically a blacklister, Mario is definitely not a good guy.

The Blacklist returns Thursday, April 20 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC. The Blacklist: Redemption airs in that timeslot until then.
