His mastermind character is known for always rocking a fedora.
And James Spader showed that it was right back to work for him as he wore his signature headwear while on the New York City set of The Blacklist on Thursday.
The 55-year-old actor looked dapper in the signature look of his character, Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington, as he paired the navy hat with a matching wool coat, grey slacks and brown leather dress shoes.
He completed the look with a navy scarf, grey vest, smart white shirt and red tie. The star also switched between a pair of gold aviator sunglasses and pair of specs.
James puffed on a cigarette in between takes as they filmed a scene on the doorstep of a home.
The NBC programme is centred around the highly articulate and intelligent businessman and mastermind played by James.
Red has been on the ’10 Most Wanted List’ of U.S. law enforcement agencies for over 20 years but ultimately cooperates by helping the FBI capture a list of criminals virtually impossible to catch.
The programme boasts a cast including Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix, Ryan Eggold and Hisham Tawfiq.
The Blacklist, which is currently in it’s second season, airs Thursday nights on NBC at 9pm.
James can also soon be seen in a big-budget superhero flick as he will star as baddie Ultron in Avengers: Age Of Ultron
The film is the sequel to the highly successful 2012 film which brings back some of the biggest heroes in the Marvel Universe including Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk and Thor.
The movie also features an all-star cast including: Robert Downey Jr. Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Idris Elba, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston and many more.
Joss Whedon has also returned to write and direct the flick that is set for release on May 1.
