Get tickets to advance screening of NBC's 'The Blacklist'

James Spader will star as the villain Ultron in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." But the guy has a day job, too.

"The Office" and "Boston Legal" actor returns to TV this fall in NBC's new drama "The Blacklist" playing another villain, Raymond “Red” Reddington, a former government agent who tops the FBI's most wanted list. After years as a fugitive, Red turns himself in to the FBI and offers to help catch the world’s worst criminals on his personal “blacklist" with one condition: He will only work with new agent Elizabeth Keen.

The taut thriller premieres Sept. 23, but NBC is giving Chicago-area residents a chance to see it early. I'll be hosting an advance screening at 7 p.m. Sept. 12 at Landmark Century Cinema, 2828 N. Clark St.

All you have to do is act fast for a chance to win a pair of passes by visiting www.gofobo.com/rsvp and entering the code MIXBN8G.

Good luck and maybe I'll see you Sept. 12.

    Vaping is all the rage - even eclipsing cigarettes in some places - but is it addictive?

    From the second I walked through the convention hall doors, I could only really see about 4 feet in front of me, and poorly at that. A DJ was blasting an EDM remix of Kanye's "All Day." I had arrived at the Vape League Electronic Cigarette Convention in suburban Rosemont.
