The show features James Spader as a fugitive from justice who unexpectedly joins forces with the U.S. government and aids them in helping take down a “blacklist” of international troublemakers; it’s unclear whether Parker’s character will be one of the names on his list.

Parker won a Tony Award in 2001 for her role in “Proof,” an Emmy and a Golden Globe for “Angels in America” in 2003, and also won a Golden Globe for playing Nancy Botwin on Showtime’s “Weeds.”
