The Blacklist adds The Sopranos alum in season 5

Posted on

The Sopranos star Aida Turturro has landed a recurring guest role on The Blacklist, EW has learned exclusively.

Turturro will play Hawkins, the brilliant accountant for an unusual business who has saved her own skin by cutting a deal with the Feds against a former business partner she absolutely loathes.

Additionally, Tony winner Michael Aronov will recur as Smokey Putnum, an expert in the art and science of logistics who once managed the travel arrangements of a magnificent, yet unusual, business, but has since fallen on hard times, currently on the run and accused of embezzling over $2 million.

The Blacklist returns Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
