Fox’s Lucifer is ramping up for the premiere of it’s third season in October, and has now added a new cast member to the series: TV Superman Tom Welling.
Lucifer follows it’s title character (Tom Ellis) in modern day Los Angeles, running a nightclub and becoming involved with the LAPD through officer Chloe Decker (Lauren German).
Welling will portray new character Marcus Pierce, a police lieutenant who takes an interest in Decker, stirring jealousy and tension with Lucifer himself. Pierce has been described by the showrunners as “reserved and well respected… charming, charismatic, and handsome.” Much like Lucifer…
Wild shot in the dark: I’d be intrigued to see him become a villain of some sort. Go against type for Welling, and provide a nice foil to his most famous role.
