CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- James Spader's career as an actor goes back to his first major film, "Endless Love" in 1981.
He played the role of Brooke Shields brother in that movie and went on to play a number of eccentric roles. That includes "Pretty in Pink", "Sex,Lies, and Videotape," "Crash", and "Lincoln".
His most famous television roles are those of the colorful attorney Alan Shore in The Practice and its spin-off Boston Legal, for which he won three Emmy Awards, and Robert California in 'The Office.'
His new TV series is the "Blacklist", and portrays the evil Raymond "Red" Reddington.
On Larry's Look this morning, Spader sat down to talk about the new series.
In the opening episode his character, gives himself up to the F.B.I., offering to help capture a host of known and unknown super criminals — on just one condition: that he work with Liz Keen, a woman he seemingly has had no prior connection to.
It was a very interesting interview, with Spader offering some "challenging" answers to Larry's questions.
It's all part of "Larry's Look Goes Hollywood". Every day this week, stars from the new NBC fall series will talk about their new shows.
