Supernatural: Rick Springfield to Play Lucifer's Rock Star Vessel in Season 12

The devil you say! Rick Springfield has been tapped to raise hell in multiple episodes of Supernatural’s Season 12, as Lucifer’s latest vessel.

After taking possession of Castiel’s body in Season 11, the fallen angel is “going to try out a few different vessels” next season, executive producer Robert Singer said during the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel Sunday. “You need a really strong vessel like Sam, like Castiel… ”

Like the erstwhile Dr. Noah Drake. “The first vessel that [Lucifer] feels comfortable with,” Singer went on, “is a rock star who’s a little bit on the down side who’s trying to come back.”

As an added bonus, if the vessel isn’t a snug fit, maybe Lucifer can sing “I’ve Done Everything for You” to his host — in his host’s hit-making voice.

Supernatural’s Season 12 premieres Thursday, Oct. 13, at 9/8c, leading out of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
