Season 4 of Supernatural ended with Lucifer rising, and now, he’s here. Michael Ausiello from EW.com has confirmed that actor Mark Pellegrino will join Supernatural as the Devil. Who is Mark Pellegrino, you ask?
Well, if you’re a Lost fan, you certainly know him as Jacob, the shadowy ruler of the Island who finally appeared in the season5 finale, only to be killed off by Ben. On that show I actually predicted that Jacob was the Devil, so it looks like I was right, only with the wrong show.
Pellegrino also starred on Dexter as Rita’s abusive ex-husband, so we know he can play an ominous bad guy. For Supernatural, this casting is huge, mostly because of Pellegrino’s recent Lost connection, which earned him plenty of new fans and should help with a lot of buzz for his new role as Lucifer.
