Deadline is reporting that actor Lauren German has joined the growing cast of Fox's "Lucifer" pilot. German will play Chloe, an LAPD homicide detective who finds herself teaming up with a bored ruler of Hell in order to solve a murder.
German joins Tom Ellis as the titular Lucifer and Lina Esco, who plays Maze, assumed to be Mazikeen, Lucifer's right hand demon in the comics. German's character is an original creation for the pilot, with no apparent comic book counterpart.
Based on the DC/Vertigo series by Mike Carey and Peter Gross, the "Lucifer" pilot will be written by "Californication" creator Tom Kapinos and directed by Len Wiseman, of "Underworld" and "Sleepy Hollow" fame.
