Pee-Wee Herman Made The Blacklist

blacklist-picNBC's sophomore drama The Blacklist will be coming back with a few guest stars already lined up for the new season that include Mary-Louise Parker, Lee Tergesen, Krysten Ritter and Peter Stormare (Berlin). Now we can add one more name to that list… Paul Rubens.

According to EW: the actor best known for his persona as Pee-Wee Herman has been cast as Mr. Vargas, a dapper and finicky 'muscle' that handles delicate situations in the criminal underworld.

"We're forgoing the bow tie and the bicycle, and it's going to be something totally different, and it's gonna be awesome," executive producer Jon Bokenkamp says. "It can't get strange enough for me. One of the most fun things is being able to write for actors who I've admired and think are interesting and try to play against expectations. I think this will be a fun one. I'd say he's gonna shake things up a bit when he enters Red's orbit."

Rubens started work on the series on Friday and is scheduled to appear in at least two episodes starting with the third episode of the second season.
