Updated: December 2, 2013

I'm considering it an early Christmas gift! Last night the good team at #TheBlacklist took to Twitter to alert fans of Diego Klattenhoff @DKlattenhoff  that he would be on line on show day (today) to answer all the questions he could tagged #AskDiego....

That's the good for the bad...

Well, we're still well beyond worried about his character Agent Donald Ressler as things went from bad to well and truly worse on last week's episode "Anslo Garrick" Pt 1 - trapped in the holding cell pod with Reddington (James Spader) while Red's arch nemesis Garrick (Ritchie Coster) threatens their lives on the other side of the glass.

Be sure to tune in to THE BLACKLIST tonight to see how he survives in the explosive Winter Finale.

For the past two seasons Pictou County, Nova Scotia native Diego Klattenhoff has been playing Mike Faber on the award winning Showtime series HOMELAND.

As the story goes Faber, is a U.S. Marine Major and the best friend of returning POW Nicolas Brody (Damian Lewis), who also happened to fall in love with Brody's wife Jessica (Morena Baccarin) while Brody was away and presumed dead.

That might not seem so friendly reading about it here - but ask any one of the show's millions of fans around the world and they'll tell ya - Klattenhoff plays the consummate 'good guy' on HOMELAND.

Now with season 3 scheduled to premiere in just 3 weeks, we can confirm the character of Mike Faber has been classified as "reoccurring".  That status meant Klattenhoff was free to take on another 'good guy' role - this time as one of the stars of the new NBC thriller THE BLACKLIST (watch above).

The highly anticipated drama stars James Spader as a criminal mastermind who surrenders to the FBI.  As you'll see in the trailer above Spader (Raymond "Red" Reddington) turns informant after turning himself in, but with some very interesting conditions, including talking only to rookie profiler Elizabeth Keen played by Megan BooneKlattenhoff plays her partner Agent Donald Ressler.
