Devilish Mark Pellegrino Joins Supernatural Cast

Mark Pellegrino to play Lucifer in Supernatural Season 5Fans of "Supernatural" got a nice treat last week when word came down that Adrianne Palicki was going to reprise her portrayal of Jessica in at least one episode, but what we've really been wanting to hear about is who would be playing Season 5's big bad, Lucifer. Our wait is now over.

Whether you know him as the enigmatic Jacob on ABC's "Lost" or Rita's loser ex-husband Paul on Showtime's "Dexter", you'll surely recognize Mark Pellegrino as a worthy adversary to Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki's Dean and Sam Winchester.

EW.com confirmed the casting with The CW but didn't have any info on how Pellegrino's new gig might impact his storyline on "Lost". Something tells me a guy as talented as Mark won't have any problem juggling the two roles, especially since "Supernatural" returns on September 10, 2009, while the final season of "Lost" doesn't get under way until February, 2010.

Oh man, I HATE this guy. I mean, I like to hate him. The hating is good.

I'll have to wait to see how I feel about Callum Blue as Zod, since I've never seen him in anything. Have to be better than Michael Rosenbaum's weak sauce attempt.

Me too. Maybe he'll play the role differently than his role on "Dexter".
