Though he’s been acting since the late 80’s, Mark Pellegrino has become a familiar face to fans of genre television over the past year thanks to his recurring roles as the God-like Jacob on ABC’s “Lost” and the devil himself Lucifer on The CW’s “Supernatural”.
Now the 44-year-old Los Angeles actor is set to topline Brian Jun’s indie drama “Joint Body” reports Variety. Pellegrino will play a parolee whose wife left him and barred him from seeing his daughter.
When he saves a lonely stripper from an attack, he soon develops a relationship with her and is forced to re-evaluate his freedom. Jim Parrack and Alicia Witt also star.
James Choi and Max Velez are producing. Filming begins next month in Illinois.
