“24” and “Heat” actor Dennis Haysbert has been set for the recurring role of God in the fifth and final season of the supernatural series “Lucifer” for Netflix.
The project marks something of a “24” reunion as D.B. Woodside, who played Haysbert’s brother in that series, stars in “Lucifer” as Amenadiel – God’s favorite son.
Co-showrunner Joe Henderson says: “We did like the big crazy list of [possible actors for the part], and he was my top choice. We were lucky. It was our first and only offer.”
The first four seasons are now available on Netflix.
