Blacklist is currently in its 13th season, which is incredibly impressive for any show on cable. It constantly garners buzz and is also a popular watch on Netflix too. Tonight's episode will feature Mu-Shaka Benson in the role of Val Messick. Benson is no stranger to Blacklist though, IMDB references his season 9 performance as his breakthrough role.

While there is not exactly a whole lot of information, we in Central New York can only hope this is the first of many episodes of Blacklist with Benson in it. At the moment, it isn't made clear as to whether he is written in for more than Friday night, May 6th's episode.

In fact, Benson isn't even aware of where in the episode he will be. Just imagine it, he is probably sitting somewhere in Central New York watching tonight seeing himself appear on screen like we are.
