Well known for his hit singles Love Somebody and Jessie’s Girl, Rick Springfield has been an actor for some time. And its announced at SDCC that he will play the role of The Prince Of Lies himself on Supernatural.
News today is that Springfield is returning to genre work in the upcoming season 12th of Supernatural. According to Variety, he’s going to be playing the new vessel for Lucifer. After having possessed Castiel last season, Satan now needs a new body to possess and he finds himself comfortable in the body of Vincent Vincente, a rock star trying to make a comeback.
It will be interesting to see where Mr. Springfield takes the enigmatic, evil entity one believes he is not in league with, and yet morbidly attracted to. Then again, he might not have to try too hard since his songs have been known to drive people into fits of rage.
God helps us all.
