Deadline reports that Ulrich Thomsen will find life after Banshee as he has signed on for a recurring role for The Blacklist’s fourth season.
The Blacklist was renewed for Season 4 way back in early December of last year and with Season 4 premiere coming sometime in September 2016, Ulrich Thomsen is the first new casting announcement for the upcoming season, with Deadline reporting that Thomsen will be playing the role of Alexander Kirk, a charismatic businessman whose strong personal ethics and intelligence have made him a major player on the world stage. Kirk will use his power and resources to strike back against his longtime nemesis, Reddington.
Ulrich Thomsen has starred in Hitman, The Thing (prequel version), Sommeren ’92 but you should definitely know him more as main villain of Banshee aka Kai Proctor. I absolutely enjoy Thomsen’s performance throughout the series of Banshee as Kai Proctor and I’m definitely interested to see how he bounces off James Spader on The Blacklist in Season 4 and hope it’s a season long recurring role rather than a short arc stint.
