Rock-star vessels are very “in” with the devil these days. During Supernatural’s Comic-Con panel on Sunday, new executive producers Bob Singer and Andrew Dabb announced that Rick Springfield will join the show’s 12th (you heard that right, 12th) season this fall for a multi-episode arc. The rocker will play Vince Vicente, a “washed-up, aging rock star” who acts as the first comfortable vessel for Lucifer. “Lucifer got what he wanted last season; his face-to-face with God. Now he’s out in the world,” Dabb said. “We see Lucifer on vacation and he wants to have fun. This is a real role … most rock stars can only sing and very few can act.” Tell me, why can’t I find a vessel like that?
