NBC pilot 'The Blacklist,' starring James Spader, closes part of Long Beach Bridge for weekend
Nassau County police closed the northbound side of the Long Beach Bridge early Saturday morning so crews could film part of a pilot for the NBC series "The Blacklist," starring James Spader.
As previously announced by the City of Long Beach, northbound traffic will be diverted onto one lane of the southbound side. The closure will be in effect until 11 p.m. Sunday.
Traffic will continue to run in both directions on the southbound side of the bridge, which could cause delays, Nassau police said in a statement. Additionally, filming could be loud, city officials said.
“The Blacklist” stars James Spader — famous for his roles in films such as “Pretty In Pink” and “Sex, Lies, and Videotape” and television shows such as “Boston Legal” — as the world’s most wanted criminal, according to entertainment website Deadline.com.
