On The Blacklist episode “Lady Ambrosia,” when Red (James Spader) isn’t trying to track down Blacklister Lady Ambrosia (Celia Weston) who abducts children in the woods, he’s being hit on by random women. While waiting at the DMV, Red is approached by a woman who mistakes him for a guy in her spin class. Or at least that’s her opening line.
The shamelessly flirtatious woman is portrayed by standup comedian Leslie Jones. Jones joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in 2014. Prior to SNL she’s appeared in the funny films Trainwreck (angry subway patron), Chris Rock’s Top Five (Lisa), Lottery Ticket (Tasha), and Wrongfully Accused with Leslie Nielsen. Jones will appear next in Ghostbusters with Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig, and Masterminds (also with Kristen Wiig and SNL’s Kate McKinnon). The Blacklist airs Thursdays at 9pm on NBC.
