Last weekend, our Kaitlyn Booth was part of the roundtable discussions with the cast of Fox’s Lucifer as the series heads towards a third season. The interview below is with the Devil himself, Tom Ellis.
And you can’t help but notice that he’s wearing a T-shirt that says Hot Tub High School, which is the name of the one movie Detective Chloe Decker (Laruen German) did before becoming a cop. The shirt was made by the Vancouver crew (who are in the hot tub) and that the censor bar for Ellis on the shirt goes well below his knee, something the actor says he insisted on if he was going to wear the shirt for them at Comic-Con.
During the interview, he talks about the relationship between Lucifer and Ella (Aimee Garcia), and where it’s a fun one to explore, it’s not a threat to the relationship between Lucifer and Chloe. On the other hand, Tom Welling‘s new character of Marcus Pierce will be a potential love interest for Chloe and make Lucifer feel a bit insecure. Where Dan Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) was Chloe’s ex, Lucifer never saw him as an equal. Ellis says that is very different with with Welling’s character as they’re even the same height.
Interesting that the big upcoming episode looks like it may be the Las Vegas trip, which seems funny, since the first two seasons the show shot in Vancouver but was set in Los Angeles, now they’re shooting in Los Angeles and decide to go to Vegas.
Lucifer returns October 2nd in the 8 p.m. slot vacated by Gotham.
