Tony Shalhoub will guest-star on an upcoming episode of The Blacklist, EW has learned exclusively.

The Emmy-winning Monk star will play Alistair Tate, a master negotiator for the criminal underworld. Alistair uses his quick wit and dramatic flair to manipulate his targets into accepting his business proposals, no matter how outlandish they are. He rarely travels without a stack of business cards and the loves of his life: two Pomeranian dogs named Marilyn and Monroe.

With a character description like that, scenes between Alistair and James Spader’s Red are sure to be delightful.

Shalhoub is slated to appear in the 13th episode of the season, which will air in early February.

The Blacklist returns Thursday, Jan. 7 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
