'The Blacklist' adds Dianne Wiest: Who will she play?Add to Favorites | The Blacklist
Star Megan Boone tweets Thursday (Jan. 30), " Dianne Wiest is going to be on our show!"
Zap2it has reached out to NBC for comment, so we'll let you know when we have any details. For now, let's speculate!
Do you think Wiest could be a member of Red's blacklist? Is she some evil criminal that the FBI takes out at Red's behest? Maybe.
You can probably rule out Red's family -- Wiest is too young to be his mother but too old to be his wife.
What is probably the most likely is that she's playing a government official. In fact, smart money says Wiest plays a friend or colleague of Fitch (Alda), which means she's probably going to be adversarial to Red while also being sort of untouchable (unlike if she was a criminal).
What do you think, fans? Sound off below!
