Nicholas Gonzalez has landed a devil of a role…
The 39-year-old Mexican American actor has landed a series regular role in Fox’s comic book drama pilot Lucifer, written by Tom Kapinos and directed by Len Wiseman for Warner Bros. Television and Jerry Bruckheimer Television.
Based on the characters from the DC Entertainment’s Vertigo, the series centers on Lucifer (portrayed by Tom Ellis) who, bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the Los Angeles Police Department punish criminals.
Gonzalez will play Dan, a gruff LAPD homicide detective, who is wary of Lucifer’s (Ellis) involvement with his wife and daughter.
Gonzalez’s previous television credits include appearances on Jane the Virgin, Sleepy Hollow, The Flash, Modern Family and Witches of East End.
