IndieWire, Max Winter: On THE BLACKLIST: Why James Spader Is the Perfect Star for the Increasingly Unreal Medium of TV http://bit.ly/1yBfjyG
// 2/12/2014, “…[H]e plays it with the same aggressively insouciant quality, as if every line he speaks is not only the best line ever written for a television actor but is also the most explosive; and the more dramatically he speaks the line, the more of a detonation it sets off.

“Spader is occupying, with unusual elan, a historical moment in TV watching and reception: he is with us as TV becomes an almost entirely private personal phenomenon, in which viewers develop relationships with characters and plotlines that they cannot quite shake.”

โ‹˜ I’m drawn to conflicted characters โ‹™

โ€“ James Spader on playing Raymond Reddington in ‘The Blacklist’
Salon/Firstpost (6/4/2015)

 
“You may recall James Spader as the voice of Ultron, in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but he also plays smarty-pants Alan Shore in ‘Boston Legal,’ the creepy attorney Edward Grey in The Secretary and the eccentric Graham Dalton in sex, lies and videotape. Apart from the fact that Spader has a tendency to play the most edgy characters with panรกche, you can’t deny that he’s a star actor. He sinks into every character like he’s living them, and you would expect nothing less from him.” โ€“ Salon, Swetha Ramakrishnan (6/4/2015): http://bit.ly/1MsUXzD

โ I read it [The Blacklist] and I was intrigued by the character, and the story, and the possibilities for the direction that the series could go,” said Spader, also adding “The character’s sense of humour, I thought, was such an interesting juxtaposition to what the realities of his life were. The realities are very often dangerous, and quite dramatic and extreme. I saw the possibility for a sense of humour within that life. I responded to that immediately and have done everything I can to try and explore that as much as we can on the show. โž โ€“ James Spader, in Salon http://bit.ly/1MsUXzD

โ I’ve found that there has always been a long historical precedent in both film, and in television, and in literature of the anti-hero,” said Spader. “It’s always been those characters that I’ve been the most drawn to, characters who are very conflicted, and not just conflicted but also very often very dichotomous or — as you say — they sort of live in the grey area.

โ I’m much more interested in the idea that you’re never quite sure what he is,” said Spader of Reddington, “Whether he’s more a good man who’s capable of very, very bad things or whether he’s a bad man who’s capable of very good things. โž James Spader, in Salon 2015 (link above)
