Who will play God in Season 5 of 'Lucifer'?

Aside from Lucifer's twin brother, we also get to meet the almighty biblical figure, God, played by Dennis Haysbert.  “We did like the big crazy list of [possible actors for the part], and he was my top choice,” co-showrunner Joe Henderson told Entertainment Weekly. “We were lucky. It was our first and only offer.”   

The showrunner explained that D.B. Woodside, who plays Lucifer's brother Amenadiel, helped the actor secure the role. “D.B. had actually come up to us and said, ‘Have you thought about Dennis?’ We were like, ‘Do you think he’d actually do it?’ And he’s like, ‘Well, I’ve already talked to him and sort of brought it up.’ And so we just went straight on at him,” he revealed.
