Fox + DC Vertigo’s Lucifer cast Lauren German
Lauren German is jumping from the proverbial pot of Chicago Fire, into the fiery pits of Hades, taking up a role on the DC Vertigo series adaptation of Lucifer.
She is set to star as the lead female alongside Tom Ellis.
The DC Comic title tells the story of Lucifer who is bored of ruling his kingdom, so he abandons it for the City Of Angels, Los Angeles, where he runs a piano bar and takes on a bit of law enforcement helping the LAPD to punish the wicked.
And as it turns out he may just do a better job than Rampart-style law enforcement.
The titular DC title ran on DC’s imprint Vertigo for 75 issues, and is considered a cult classic since appearing in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series.
The pilot for the Fox drama is being written by Tom Kapinos and directed by Len Wiseman. Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman will also executive produce the series slated to be aired on FOX.
