Lucifer: Tom Ellis cast as lead in comic book pilot

2 March 2015 12:23 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Comic book adaptation Lucifer has found its leading man – EastEnders, Doctor Who and Miranda star Tom Ellis

Adding another name to the long list of British actors who have headed to Hollywood to portray American comic book characters, Welsh actor Tom Ellis has now been cast in Fox’s Lucifer pilot, as you may have heard over the weekend.

Depending on your tastes in television, there are many roles you could recognise Tom Ellis from. He landed a small but significant role as Thomas Milligan in Doctor Who’s Last Of The Time Lords, a 29-episode stint as Dr. Oliver in EastEnders and a series regular role as Gary in BBC comedy Miranda. To our cousins across the pond, he might be better known as William P. Rush in the medical-themed TV drama Rush.

He will take the title role in Lucifer, based on Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ comic of the same name, »

Tom Ellis Lands Leading Role In Fox’s Lucifer Pilot

27 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox’s Lucifer pilot has bagged its horned antihero in the shape of Welsh actor, Tom Ellis. Known for his extensive television work in the UK, Ellis made waves in a variety of popular British shows including No Angels, Merlin, Rush and Miranda. He will soon be packing his bags for the sunny climes of Los Angeles as he prepares for his latest small screen performance as king of hell, Lucifer Morningstar.

Late last year, when the show was granted an initial pilot commitment, it was expected that it would stick closely to the comic series. Created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Keith and Mike Dringenberg, the original DC Comics-run centers on Lucifer 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 opens an exclusive piano bar called Lux.”

DC's 'Lucifer' TV Show Casts Tom Ellis as the Lead

27 February 2015 11:16 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one week after Fox issued a pilot order for their DC Comics adaptation Lucifer, Tom Ellis has signed on to play the title character. The pilot is based on DC Comics characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg. Lucifer first appeared in several issues of Neil Gaiman's beloved comic Sandman, before getting his own comic series written by Mike Carey.

The show centers on the Lord of Hell (Tom Ellis), who grows bored of reigning over the underworld. He decides to abandon his post and head to Los Angeles, where he helps the Lapd punish criminals. An earlier version of the pilot still had Lucifer coming to L.A., but instead he opens a piano bar entitled Lux. That aspect of the story will not be used in this new version of the pilot.

Californication creator Tom Kapinos wrote the pilot script, and he will »

Once Upon A Time's Tom Ellis Will Play Lucifer In The Fox Pilot

27 February 2015 8:13 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

TV Line report that Tom Ellis has landed the title role in Fox's Lucifer, which is based on the incarnation of the character first introduced in Neil Gaiman's Sandman. The Welsh actor is best known stateside for his role the first Robin Hood in TV's Once Upon A Time. The pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman (the Total Recall remake, Underworld), who will also executive produce along with Tom Kapinos, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. The original logline for the show was pretty similar to the comic series, and had Lucifer growing tired with his infernal responsibilities and relocating to La where he opened an exclusive piano bar called Lux. Now it seems it's "undergone an evolution toward a police procedural", with the character getting his kicks helping the Lapd punish criminals. Does this have a hope in Hell of being good?
