WWJPD: Mark Pellegrino to play the Devil in Supernatural!

I can’t lie, despite liking the actor chosen to the Devil in season five of Supernatural, I’m a little disappointed.  See, according to EW.com, Mark Pellegrino (from Lost and Dexter) will be playing Lucifer when Supernatural comes back on September 10, 2009.  Again, I like Pellegrino – he played a great sleaze on Dexter, and I have no idea who he played on Lost.  But my disappointment comes in that, given how Supernatural seemed to try and do things a little different from the norm, and the way season five ended, I was actually expecting the Devil to be a big monster, something truly epic.  Instead, it seems like we’ll get the more common sleazy-guy kind of Devil.  Couldn’t we have gotten something more akin to Tim Curry in Legend?  Maybe that’s asking for too much, given budgetary constraints.  Still, it’s Supernatural, so I’ve got faith.

Besides, shouldn’t they just Ray Wise?  He played the Devil so well in Reaper.  I smell a crossover!

What Would Jared Padalecki Do?

  1. Oh damn. I had a Reaper/Ray Wise joke all chambered and ready to go. Now this comment is entirely without substance.

    But this is pretty disappointing. We already had the kind of evil car salesman deal with the Yellow Eyed demon. I hope it’s not just a rehash of that. D=

  2. I doubt it. I’ve tivo’d the entire series though. Fantastic and yet another example of a show Fox pulled the plug on too quickly.

  3. It doesn’t surprise me that much, Supernatural doesn’t typically do big special effects monsters, though I’ll say this much… just because he’s cast it doesn’t mean there won’t be special effects applied to him.

    I’d be more shocked if he was something more then just a dude, though I’m disappointed that its not John Glover, who played The Devil on the classic tv series Brimstone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brimstone_(TV_series)
