Famke Janssen On "Jack Of The Red Hearts"

By: Donna Freydkin

She had a very hot arc on this season of ABC's "How To Get Away with Murder." And now, get ready to see much, much more of Famke Janssen, who also plays the harried mother of an autistic child in Lifetime's "Jack of the Red Hearts."

The actress is set as the female lead on the planned spinoff of NBC's "The Blacklist," which stars James Spader as Reddington, a mysterious hunter of criminals.

"I'm on two episodes of the 'Blacklist,'" Janssen tells us.

The 22nd episode will be what's known as the backdoor pilot, assuming it gets officially picked up by NBC, and will kick off Janssen's standalone arc.

"I would sort of be in essence the female kind of Reddington," she says. "It's really a pretty awesome character. You can tell how duplicitous and interesting these characters are. She's kind of like a female James Spader.

And while not a law-breaker per se, Janssen's Scottie has "criminal tendencies if needed."
