Withamsville’s Andy Breving On ‘The Blacklist’

Provided by Andy Breving

In the first part of NBC’s “The Blacklist” Thursday (9 p.m. today, Channel 5), Withamsville native Andy Breving says he appears with FBI agent  Elizabeth Keen (Meghan Boone).

But he doesn’t want to give too much away.

“I have a little scene with Meghan Boone at the top of the show,” he says in an email.  

In the “Lady Ambrosia” episode, “Liz” Keen and criminal mastermind  Red Reddington (James Spader) help a task force search for a “dangerous woman” after a missing child presumed dead turns up alive, says the NBC episode description. Leslie Jones from “Saturday Night Live” guest stars in the show.

The St. Xavier High School grad has been a Brooklyn based actor-writer for more than 10 years. His breakthrough role came five years ago, when he was Arby’s on-camera spokesman for the “Good Mood Food” TV commercials. 


Breving  has appeared in “Elementary,” “All My Children,” “Guiding Light,”  “The Departed” and about a dozen theater productions.

“I got shot by a sniper earlier this year on ‘Elementary,’ so the good news is now I’m finally able to appear on prime-time TV without singing about roast beef or getting killed!” he says.
