Tony winner Brian Stokes Mitchell is set for a guest appearance on the February 16 episode of NBC’s The Blacklist. The series stars James Spader as Raymond Reddington, a former government agent and fugitive who agrees to cooperate with the FBI to put away criminals from his list. Mitchell had revealed his upcoming TV spot during the Broadway Party Line at BroadwayCon 2017.
On the upcoming episode, Mitchell plays David Levine, “an elegant, priggish bank executive with impeccable taste in both clothing and art.” His ties to clients of questionable reputations incite conflict between him and Reddington.
Mitchell most recently appeared on Broadway in Shuffle Along... and earned a Tony for his work in the revival of Kiss Me, Kate. He has been nominated for three other Tony Awards for Ragtime, King Hedley II, and Man of La Mancha.
The actor is currently preparing to set sail aboard Playbill’s Broadway on the High Seas 8 to the Caribbean alongside 18 other Broadway favorites in our most star-studded cruise to date. Playbill’s inaugural river cruise along the Rhône River in May 2017 is sold out, but cabins are available for the Rhine River cruise in August 2017, featuring Seth Rudetsky, Andréa Burns, Faith Prince, Terrence Mann, Charlotte d’Amboise, and more exciting talent to be announced.
