Fox’s upcoming adaptation of the DC/Vertigo comic series Lucifer has gone through a bit of a casting shuffle. According to Deadline, the show has lost actor Nicholas Gonzalez, who will be replaced by True Blood and Arrow alum Kevin Alejandro.
The role is that of a gruff homicide detective for the Lapd, who grows wary of the eponymous former Underworld ruler’s burgeoning relationship with his wife and daughter.
More News From The Web
No reason for Gonzalez’s exit was given, and it sounds like his part in the pilot will remain intact despite the role swap. That means there’s going to be a slight bit of confusion for viewers when the show debuts next midseason. Still, Alejandro should be a fine replacement, so I’m excited to see what he does with the role.

Cody Rhodes is set to make his WWE return on next Monday’s edition of Raw in Chicago according to PWInsider.
He has been off TV since his father Dusty Rhodes died unexpectedly on June 11. Since he wasn’t a part of any storylines at the time, his absence hasn’t hurt any plans although fans have been wondering when he might come back and in what role.
If he returns as the heel Stardust character that draws “Cody” chants from the fans that want to annoy him, it just won’t feel right. Now seems like a good time to have him return to the Cody Rhodes name, work as a babyface that is carrying on his father’s legacy and see how far he can go in that role.
Cody’s wife Brandi, who goes by the name Eden on WWE TV, has already »
