Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) is opening up on Blindspot.
"After getting off to a rocky start, Weller and NSA Agent Nas Kamal finally break the ice while discussing Weller's past,” Alex Berger, co-executive producer of Blindspot, tells ET.
In the scene, Kamal breaks the ice by asking Weller why he’s not pictured a lot in his school yearbooks.
“I hated military school,” he explains, pulling up a chair and reminiscing about his past. “After Taylor [Shaw] disappeared, [I was] pretty sure my father was responsible, so it was kind of hard for us to be in the same house. I was so worried about my sister, I broke out all the time, snuck home just to check on her, make sure she was OK. Surprised they didn’t expel me.”
“Part of being a underprivileged kid,” Weller says, trying to downplay his Outstanding Marksman honor. “I was that for sure.”
“I was voted Class Clown,” Kamal deadpans, which Weller has a hard time believing. Watch the scene below to see what happens next!
Blindspot airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
