Blake DeLong is a displaced Texan, now based in New York City. When he’s not prowling the confusing, psychedelic aisles of the city’s strange delis and bodegas in search of Velveeta with which to make his beloved Tex-Mex queso, he works in film, television, and theatre. He is best known as the star of Matt Muir’s critically acclaimed independent film Thank You a Lot, which premiered at SXSW 2014. He also originated the father/son dual-role of Andrey and Old Prince Bolkonsky in Dave Malloy’s Off-Broadway sensation Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, for which he was nominated for a 2014 Lucille Lortel Award. Other credits include Lynne Ramsay’s We Need To Talk About Kevin, Piaget Award winner Chris Ohlson’s short film Expecting, and NBC’s hit drama “The Blacklist”.
