James Spader will star as the villain Ultron in "Avengers: Age of Ultron. " But the guy has a day job, too. "The Office" and "Boston Legal" actor returns to TV this fall in NBC's new drama "The Blacklist" playing another villain, Raymond “Red” Reddington, a former government agent who tops the FBI's most wanted list. After years as a fugitive, Red turns himself in to the FBI and offers to help catch the world's worst criminals on his personal “blacklist" with one condition: He will only work with new agent Elizabeth Keen.

** (out of four)   Clint Eastwood knows a great deal about many subjects: grumbling, the West, gunfire, stubble.   Then there are topics, recent years have proven, about which Mr. Eastwood has fewer insightful thoughts: kidnapping, apartheid, the afterlife, “Jersey Shore.” (Well, the latter is an assumption, pending production of Eastwood's revenge saga “Fist Pump.”)   Now, with “J.

On Sept. 25, 1993, Robert O'Dubaine was gunned down in the garage of the Bucktown condo he shared with his girlfriend, Catherine Suh. Investigation Discovery's "FBI: Criminal Pursuit" takes a looks at the infamous Chicago murder case at 9 p.m. April 8 in an episode titled "The Black Widow. " The series presents the case rather cheesily at times through dramatic reenactments of key moments and interviews with real people who were involved at the time. It wastes no time rightfully demonizing Catherine, explaining how she sought to live and maintain a lavish lifestyle...

Being punched in the face for an iPhone is not pleasant. Regrettably, I'm one of the growing number of victims who can say this from personal experience. A couple of weeks ago, I was mugged on a quiet afternoon in my cozy Old Irving Park neighborhood. I made the mistake of entering what I call The Smart Phone Zone - in which I tried to walk, listen to a podcast and tweet at the same time. Meanwhile, two large men in hoodies silently sprinted up to me from behind. Before I had a chance to turn around, one of them began punching me in the head and...

Chicago is set to have a big year for bank heists. After passing 2011's total of 115 total bank robberies in August, Chicago's FBI field office now expects to surpass another benchmark: 200 bank robberies for 2012, a high number for a one-year period. Currently, 197 robberies have happened in Chicago and its five collar counties, well shy of 2006's record of 284. "We fully expect to exceed that 200 mark, [since] over the last 10 years, December has averaged the highest number of bank robberies in a month," said Joan Hyde, a spokeswoman for the Chicago-area...

Serial bank robbers - or crooks who commit three or more heists - don't make off with just cash. They also sometimes get a nickname from the FBI. Special Agent Ross Rice of Chicago's FBI field office is in charge of coming up with the monikers for the repeat offenders. He said there isn't a science to it. Rather, the designations have a two-fold purpose: make the name stick in the media and public's mind, and make the criminals easily identifiable to the law enforcement officials working on the case.

"Sanctuary" fans have heard a lot about the upcoming musical episode. Here's an exclusive first-look clip from "Fugue," which debuts at 9 p.m. Nov. 25 on Syfy.

Two of the better network dramas go head to head starting Monday: "The Blacklist" ( 9 p.m. CT Sept. 23, NBC; 3 stars out of 4 ) and "Hostages" ( 9 p.m. CT Sept. 23, CBS; 3 stars out of 4 ). I give "The Blacklist" the edge, thanks to the dazzling performance of James Spader as Raymond "Red" Reddington, an ex-government agent who disappeared years ago and has been selling classified information to the highest bidder ever since. Red walks into FBI headquarters and gives himself up, offering to help the agency catch an international...

** (out of four) I support liking brie on your burger, but snooty businessman Arthur Shaw's (Alan Alda) extravagance catches up to him when the FBI snags him for securities fraud. Since the stolen money includes the pensions of all the staff in Arthur's building, a ragtag crew of the tower's employees/residents (Ben Stiller, Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick, Michael Pena) recruit an amateur thief (Eddie Murphy) to help swipe $20 million from the crook. If ever there was a victimless crime, this is it. The buzz: Not only does the plot and rhythm of the occasionally...

The number of hate crimes reported in Chicago and nationwide spiked in 2001, the year of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York. That year saw 215 reported in Chicago, with about half classified as bona fide by police. In the last five years, however, the number of bona fide hate crimes--which Chicago police determined to have been motivated by certain demographics of the victim, like race or religion--has, for the most, part declined. 2011 Number of reported hate incidents: 51 Number of "bona fide" hate crimes: 10* 2010 Number of reported hate...
