Exec producer Robert Singer described Springfield’s character as “a rock star who’s a little bit on the down side” and ready for a comeback. The former rocker — the character, not Springfield himself — becomes a “vessel” for Lucifer.
Springfield, who broke through as an actor with American audiences on General Hospital in the early 1980s and had a string of pop hits including “Jessie’s Girl” and “I’ve Done Everything for You,” appeared in the 2015 Meryl Streep film Ricki and the Flash.
Supernatural premieres at 9 PM Thursday, October 13, on the CW.
