‘Preacher’‘s bad guy The Saint of Killers, Graham McTavish is staying in holy territory. He has landed a recurring role in Season Four of ‘Lucifer,’ the supernatural series that was cancelled by FOX but revived by Netflix. McTavish is playing religious leader Father Kinley. This character is described as “kind, deeply empathetic and revered” and he will do anything to protect his flock and stamp out evil. And with the Devil himself living in LA, his quest will obviously bring him into conflict with the show’s lead.
McTavish will continue his role on ‘Preacher’ in addition to this new recurring gig. As comic fans may have noticed, both ‘Preacher’ and ‘Lucifer’ are based on series published as part of DC’s adult-targeted Vertigo line.
Fans may recall McTavish as Dwalin in the ‘Hobbit’ film series. His career stretches back to the 1980s– he was a regular on ‘Red Dwarf’– and he has since appeared on ‘Prison Break’, ’24’ and ‘Outlander’. He is also a prolific voice actor, lending his pipes to various animated projects such as Netflix’s ‘Castlevania’, ‘Wolverine and the X-Men’, ‘Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ and ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ as well as video games like ‘Infamous 2’, ‘Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’, ‘Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’ and ‘Halo Wars 2’. He will be seen in ‘Aquaman’ this winter, in an undisclosed role.
Inbar Lavi was just announced as joining ‘Lucifer’ season four as Eve, who has been trapped in the Garden of Eden for millennia and escapes out of boredom.
‘Lucifer’ season four began production earlier this month and will likely be available in fall next year. Netflix ordered ten new episodes. As fans may recall, after cancelling the series, FOX aired two bonus episodes, but according to showrunners Tom Kapinos and Ildy Modrovich those episodes will be mixed in where they fit, with ten completely new installments.
