Tom Ellis is a long way from Miranda in the first look at his upcoming US series Lucifer.
The British actor plays Lucifer, the seductive Lord of Hell who has made a home for himself in the sleazy glamour of Los Angeles.
In the trailer, we discover that he has a particular gift for making people reveal their darkest desires. “Must be something about this face,” he jokes. What, this face?
Whatever happened to the doe-eyed love of Miranda’s life? Watch the full trailer, and jump below to find out more about this devilish new series.
The new TV series, made by US network Fox, is loosely based on the character from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman graphic novel series. Lucifer then got a comic book series of his own, providing plenty of material for the Fox screenwriters.
Lucifer is set to air in 2016 in the United States, with a UK release likely to follow on Fox’s digital channel.
I watched the LUCIFER pilot & suspect the show will become a guilty pleasure for a lot of people. Tom Ellis plays L like a sexymadbadDrWho.

There is an outside chance Ellis could be back on UK screens earlier than that however: Strictly Come Dancing show bosses are said to be “keen” to sign up the Welsh star for the upcoming series.
Who said you can’t dance with the devil?
