Lucifer Season 2 Casts The Sopranos' Michael Imperioli as the Angel Uriel

Fox’s Lucifer is adding another angel to its outfield, in the form of former Sopranos wiseguy Michael Imperioli.

Executive producer Ildy Modrovich (no relation!) announced the casting of Emmy winner Imperioli as the angel Uriel on Monday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, where the helluva series was sharing a panel with the Gotham cast/EPs.

“Amenadiel is the older brother, Lucifer is the little brother who got all the attention, and Uriel is the one lost in the middle,” showrunner Joe Henderson tells TVLine. “He’s got a chip on his shoulder, and that will be a big part of him coming down.”

Previously announced Lucifer Season 2 castings include, of course, Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) as Lucifer and Amenadiel’s mother, “Charlotte,” plus Aimee Garcia (Dexter) as the L.A.P.D.’s new forensic scientist, Ella Lopez. Both additions are series regulars.

  2. Robberey says:

    What means the (no relation!) behind “Ildry Modtovich”? Btw: HER Name is “Ildy” not Ildry, without the”r”

  3. BM says:

    I like the idea but… *another* cast member? How many actors do they plan to stuff the show with?

  4. flowerduh says:

    I’m a huge fan of Michael Imperoli

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Great casting news. He’s a great actor. Looking forward to see him on the show!

  6. A supernatural character, really

  7. Jake says:

    I like Imperoli, should be a good addition to the cast.

  8. Penn says:

    I too really like Michael Imperioli, but I worry about the direction this show is taking. My big question is, where is Chloe in all this? I’m not happy with a new love interest. The show had a bit of sweetness with the craziness that I really liked. I worry it’s going to be one of those I’ll abandon in season 2.

    So he’s the Jan Brady angel? Ok.

    I made it through season one but struggled to do so because Lucifer was just so…powerless. I’ll be cautiously optimistic this changes for season two.
