Case Profile for Harry Lennix Terrence “Dresser” Williams, Commander Lock, General Swanwick, Boyd Langton, and – of course – our favorite FBI agent, Harold Cooper. These are just a few of many characters Harry Joseph Lennix III has portrayed over the many years of his enduring career. Each one, different in personality traits, yet carrying one similarity that is quite inescapable: the acting prowess of Harry Lennix. On this special episode of The Blacklist Exposed, Troy and Aaron sit down with Harry Lennix to discuss much more than simply The Blacklist. For an actor with such a storied career, we wanted to learn as much as we could about the only man who dares go toe-to-toe with Red Reddington. From Lennix’s humble beginning in Chicago, IL, to how his brother almost accidentally inspired Harry’s acting ambitions, to his initial aspirations with the church. Then we segue to Lennix’s lauded career, 30+ years of work with filmmakers including Spike Lee and Zack Snyder (with even more details on that Justice League news), his love of musicals and Shakespeare, before ultimately tackling the role many of us love him more, Harold Cooper. PLUS Harry has also created a new organization in the African American Museum for Performing Arts (AAMPA) which exists digitally today and soon will have a permanent home on the south side of Chicago. This is an interview any fan of The Blacklist will appreciate, followers of Lennix’s career will love, and any aspiring artist will respect. THIS is our interview with Harry Lennix.
