Most recently, Haysbert starred in the films Breakthrough, Secret Obsession and Playing With Fire.

He also appeared in the comedy series Home Movie: The Princess Bridge as Prince Humperdinck and Surveillance as Barry Wilkinson.

Ahead of the Lucifer season five premiere, Haysbert tweeted: “This Friday: the new season of “Lucifer” premieres on Netflix! Make sure and set a reminder to watch because heaven is coming to earth – when I portray the role of #GOD. Yes, the Almighty Father. #ThisFriday #SeasonPremiere #Lucifer #Netflix #DennisHaysbert.”

Speaking to Variety after the season five premiere, co-showrunner Idly Modrovich said: “To be honest, we were always worried about bringing God into the [show] because we loved that it was always about people interpreting his actions or his lack of actions.

“And if we brought him actually there, would he give us too many answers?

“Instead of God being mysterious, suddenly, oh, here we are with the drawer of answers.

“We wanted to make sure we didn’t do that. I think we found a way.”

Lucifer Co-showrunner Joe Henderson revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Haysbert may have his former co-star to thank for landing the role of God.

Henderson said: “We did like the big crazy list of [possible actors for the part], and he was my top choice,

“We were lucky. It was our first and only offer.

“DB [Woodside] had actually come up to us and said, ‘Have you thought about Dennis [Haysbert]?’

“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.”

Haysbert added: “Every time I see DB, there’s always this fondness and this connection.

“We worked on a show that was arguably one of the best shows ever produced in television, so you’re going to have a kind of camaraderie.

“I don’t know how I went from brothers to father. We’re celestial. We can do that.”
