The Blacklist's guest list continues to grow.

Paul Reubens is the latest actor to snag a guest-starring role in the second season of NBC's hit drama, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Best known for portraying Pee-Wee Herman in the 1980s, Reubens will play Mr. Vargas, a dapper man who takes care of "delicate situations in the criminal underworld." He's slated to appear in at least two episodes, beginning with the third episode of the season.

Reubens joins previously announced guest-stars Mary-Louise Parker, Krysten Ritter, and Lee Tergesen.


The Blacklist returns Monday, September 22 at 10pm on NBC.

    Character sounds like a torturer, I can't wait to see what Red has against him!

    Bonus points if he wears a dapper and slimming light grey suit when he works! Also, wish I'd seen sooner that Krysten Ritter is making an appearance, if only she could just stay on a show without getting killed off or cancelled!
