Lucifer Gets Series Pickup and Offers First Look at Tom Ellis as Title Character. It looks like Fox has made a deal with the King of Hell as Lucifer is given the greenlight to air its freshman season this fall. We also have our first look at actor Tom Ellis as Lucifer himself.
Coming off the pages of The Sandman comics, Lucifer is based off of the popular spinoff series from DC’s Vertigo imprint. Lucifer Morningstar is looking rather dashing in this first look at the King of Hell living it up in the streets of LA. Len Wiseman, who directed Fox’s other series Sleepy Hollow, will direct the pilot episode. Take a look at the British actor in his new digs as the Devil and let us know what you think.
Lucifer follows the King of Hell who leaves his throne out of boredom and trades his kingdom for the beautiful and dark city of Los Angeles. During his time in LA, he also offers his services to the LAPD in punishing criminals. The series also stars Lauren German as Chloe Dancer, an LAPD homicide detective who finds herself draw and amazed by Lucifer; Lesley-Ann Brandt as Lucifer’s best friend Maze, a demon who takes the form of a human woman; Nicholas Gonzales as Dan, a detective who grows suspicious of Lucifer; D.B. Woodside as Amendial, an angel sent to LA to persuade Lucifer to return to Hell; and Rachael Harris as Linda, Lucifer’s therapist.
