Nicholas Gonzalez (Sleepy Hollow) has landed a series regular role in Fox’s comic book drama pilot Lucifer, written by Tom Kapinos and directed by Len Wiseman for Warner Bros. TV and Jerry Bruckheimer TV. Based on the characters from the DC Entertainment’s Vertigo, the TV series centers on Lucifer (Tom Ellis) 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 gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals. Gonzalez, repped by Pakula/King Assoc. and LINK, will play Dan, a gruff LAPD homicide detective, who is wary of Lucifer’s (Ellis) involvement with his wife and daughter.
Samantha Logan (The Fosters), Jordan Calloway (Drumline: A New Beat) and Timothy Granaderos have joined the cast of Fox’s family dramedy pilot Studio City, written by Krista Vernoff and directed by Sanaa Hamri. Inspired by Vernoff’s real-life experience growing up, the show is set in present-day Studio City, CA and tells the story of a young singer’s (Florence Pugh) path to stardom, as she comes of age living with her songwriter father Rob (Eric McCormack) — who turns out to be a drug dealer to the stars. Logan, repped by Innovative Artists, will play Emma, Rob’s (McCormack) daughter and Cat’s (Pugh) half-sister. Calloway will play Griffin, a local skateboarder who connects with Cat upon her arrival, Granaderos is Mateo, the teenaged son of Stevie (Heather Graham), and an accomplished graffiti artist who is not afraid to go to juvie for his art.
Kelly Jenrette (Frisky Dingo) has booked a series regular role opposite John Stamos in Fox’s single-camera comedy pilot Grandpa, from ABC Studios and 20th TV. Grandpa centers on Jimmy (Stamos), a charismatic longtime bachelor whose life is upended when he discovers he’s a father — and a grandfather. Jenrette, repped by Mitchell Stubbs Agency and Robyn Bluestone Management, will play Annalise, the assistant manager at Jimmy’s restaurant.
