Gotham's Lesley-Ann Brandt Replaces Lina Esco As 'Maze' On Lucifer

17 March 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to THR, actress Lesley-Ann Brandt (who played Copperhead on Gotham) will replace Lina Esco as Maze on Fox's Lucifer pilot. This character was first introduced in the pages of Neil Gaiman's Sandman as Lucifer's right hand woman, who eventually follows him to Earth. She's described as "a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman" on the show. 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. Tom Ellis will »
