    Red Down, Not Out, as 'The Blacklist' Returns for Season 5
    Red is back.

    "The Blacklist" star James Spader says the NBC drama will include more humor in its fifth season.

    That's despite the fact that Spader's character, Raymond "Red" Reddington, is rebuilding his criminal network after a vengeful effort to destroy it.

    While the high-flying Red has been reduced to living in a motor lodge, he remains as confident as ever.

    As Spader sees it, Red has always greeted life with gusto, no matter the circumstances. And the actor says Red's fall from power has created an opportunity for more fun amid the action.
