When Supernatural returns, Lucifer has found himself a new vessel in the form of rock star Rick Springfield. Furthermore, we know that Castiel and Crowley will be teaming up to hunt him down. After all, Castiel is in need of a bit of revenge, and Crowley wants nothing more than to take back his throne.

But the hunt for Lucifer won’t be easy, and along the way, Crowley’s going to run into at least one familiar face. EW can exclusively reveal that Kadeem Hardison has been cast to guest star in a season 12 episode as Russell Lemmons — get it? — a music industry mogul who has a history with Crowley and big plans for Vince Vincente, which by the way, is the name of Lucifer’s new vessel, played by Springfield.

Supernatural returns Thursday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
