“The Night Of’s” Poorna Jagannathan is all set to make a guest appearance on Season 5 of NBC’s crime thriller series, “The Blacklist.”

The Indian American actress, according to Entertainment Weekly, will play the world-weary and tough Norah Ahmad, who comes to the U.S. to fulfill a single irrepressible need. She’s determined, ruthless and ready to destroy anything or anyone standing in her way. She will be seen in an episode slated for October.

Jagannathan, last seen on Netflix’s psycho-drama, “Gypsy,” was also spotted on HBO’s anthology comedy, “Room 104.”

Other notable credits of Jagannathan include “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Royal Pains” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”

Her new film, “Daisy Winters,” according to IMDb will release Dec. 1. She will play the role of Annabel Kumar in the film which is about an 11-year-old girl’s unconventional, yet deeply loving relationship with her mother and what happens when this essential mother/daughter bond is harshly broken.

The father-son buddy comedy, “An Actor Prepares,” will also feature the actress in the role of Dr. Fisher. Starring Jeremy Irons and Jack Huston, the story, according to The Hollywood Reporter, centers on a highly celebrated actor Atticus (Irons), whose spectacular career is matched only by his rugged good looks and effortless, devilish charm. Atticus’ estranged son, Paul (Huston), is nothing like his philandering, drinking, devil-may-care father. He is a feminist and professor who is devoted to his partner Clementine. Paul has wanted nothing to do with his parents’ divorce. But when a medical condition forces Atticus to hitch a ride from Los Angeles to New York to be at his daughter’s wedding, Paul becomes his only option. And so, begins their madcap, odd-couple journey across the U.S.
