The cast of Lucifer chatted up a storm during their Netflix reunion show, revealing a few nuggets about what to expect when binge watching the new season.
Rachael Harris, who plays Dr. Linda Martin, led the discussion that included Tom Ellis (Lucifer Morningstar), Lauren German (Detective Chloe Decker), Kevin Alejandro (Detective Dan Espinoza), D.B. Woodside (Amenadiel), Lesley-Ann Brandt (Maze), and Aimee Garcia (Ella Lopez).
Harris asked the cast about the “new possibilities” that Netflix, as opposed to network TV, offered the show.
She then revealed that in an upcoming episode some of the cast will go nude.
“You’re at a nudist colony, with who?” Harris asks Garcia.
“With this one,” Garcia answered pointing at Ellis. “Just bum, all bare ass.”
Ellis responded by saying it was not the first time he showed his butt in the new season.
“It wasn’t my first experience of the season to be ‘out’ shall we say,” he said.
“He’s really out this season guys,” Garcia laughed. “But he’s keeping it tight.”
“We get to have nudity, full frontal nudity,” Harris added. “I’ll tell you right now, we have the entire arc. Full frontal.”
Despite the freedom of being off Fox and on Netflix, Ellis is quick to point out that fans shouldn’t expect the show to go crazy.
“Well, I think we need to be careful because, obviously, this huge reaction from our fans, people loved the show as the show was,” said Ellis. “So, whilst there’s a temptation to do everything we weren’t allowed to do, I think we have to find a happy medium, because one of the things about the show that makes it work, it’s a bit naughty, a bit cheeky, but it’s not gratuitous.”
Several of the cast members admitted they had stolen some things from the set through the years.
Alejandro took a bobblehead of himself that was not used in Season 1. Brandt never returned her practice blades. Ellis said most of his socks are from the show. And German said she’s been known to take home some clothes.
During the conversation, Ellis also revealed a prank that his cast-mate German had played on him on his birthday a couple years back.
It happened during Season 2, following an appearance by actor Ryan Alosio on Episode 8, “Trip to Stabby Town.”
“There was a guest star on the show, I’m quite a tolerant person, but they really wound me up,” admitted Ellis. “I found him quite annoying. His character had a lot of cardboard cutouts made of him, for a part of their set dressing, basically. So a couple weeks after this guy is not around anymore, it’s my birthday and I basically open the trailer door and I walk in and am confronted by about twelve of these full-size cardboard cutouts of the most annoying person I’ve ever met!”
“Lauren’s in there and I’m like, ‘very, very funny Muffin!’ and clear all of them out, laughing about it. I finally get my shit together and go to have a piss, open the door and there’s three more in the tiny little bathroom!”
“I even put a giant one leaning on the toilet,” German laughed.
The cast also discussed a topic we handled earlier this year on JimHeath.TV which is whether the show should be boycotted – or embraced – by Christians.
“We’re really not blasphemous,” said Harris.
“The biggest misconception is that it’s a story celebrating evil,” added Ellis.
“I think what our show does is actually go, ‘is it some guy in a handsome suit, who looks hot, that’s making me do all the terrible things in the world, or is it shitty choices I’m making?” said Brandt. “I think through characters like Chloe and Ella, we actually spread love.”
“And I think there’s the notion of having the most irredeemable character, in history or fiction or whatever you want to call it, on a path to redemption,” added Ellis. “That’s the good part of this. It’s like we’re saying that everyone’s capable of redemption, but also it helps if people take responsibility for their own actions.”
“The hell we’re in is the hell we put ourselves in,” said Woodside. “I think that’s something the show touches on constantly.”
Brandt is already pushing for even more violent action if Lucifer is renewed on Netflix for a fifth season.
“If we get a season five, I want more fights,” she said. “Like 300 blood spatter on the lens.”
The cast also unanimously picked Alejandro as the one most likely to get into a real bar fight.
“I’d have to agree,” he laughed.
Season 1-4 of Lucifer is available now on Netflix.
