Dennis Haybert is coming to Lucifer for its fifth and final season. Entertainment Weekly reported that the actor will have an important role to play. He is playing God, the father of Lucifer and Amenadiel, who are played by Tom Ellis and D.B. Woodside.
This is not the first time Woodside and Haybert have worked together. The pair appeared as brothers on 24. Woodside was actually instrumental in getting the actor cast on the Netflix series, according to one of the series’ showrunners, Joe Henderson. He wasn’t even sure if Haybert would be interested in the Lucifer role. He was the only actor Henderson wanted for the role though.
However, Haybert was immediately on board. The actor said the following:
“Every time I see D.B., there’s always this fondness and this connection…We worked on a show that was arguably one of the best shows ever produced in television, so you’re going to have a kind of camaraderie. I don’t know how I went from brothers to father. We’re celestial. We can do that.”
What do you think? Are you excited to see Dennis Haybert on Lucifer? Do you plan to watch the final season of the series?
