The Blacklist: Leslie Jones to guest-star
Leslie Jones has booked a guest-starring role on The Blacklist, EW has learned exclusively.
In an episode slated for mid-February, Jones will play a woman who mistakes Reddington (James Spader) for a guy from her spin class and shamelessly hits on him. How will the infamous criminal mastermind react to that?
One of Saturday Night Live’s breakout comedians, Jones has previously appeared on various TV shows, including Workaholics, The League and Sullivan & Son. Jones also joins Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Kristen Wiig in the highly anticipated reboot of Ghostbusters, which will hit theaters on July 15.

For fans of Reddington’s eclectic group of minions who assist him on The Blacklist, Jones’ episode also marks the return of Glen Carter (Clark Middleton) from the DMV, who seems to be the only character who can make Reddington lose his temper every time — and still survive.
The Blacklist airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
