13 Times Tom Ellis Was Too Hot For This (Under)World

The "Lucifer" star is a handsome devil. (Get it?)

Tom Ellis was criminally removed from our TV screens when his USA series "Rush" got the axe last year -- we're still not over it -- but it looks like the handsome Brit will make a triumphant return stateside in "Lucifer."

The 36-year-old actor has landed the lead role in the Fox pilot, which sounds an awful lot like "Rush." Per EW, "Lucifer," which is based on the DC Comics character of the same name, will follow the ruler of Hell as he says sayonara to his fiery kingdom and heads for -- wait for it -- Los Angeles! There, he'll help the LAPD take down criminals because why not?

Regardless of the seemingly insane plot, we're just happy to have Ellis back on our weekly viewing schedules because that man is hella good-looking. Between his sexy scruff and devilishly handsome face, Ellis is the perfect man to front this gritty procedural. Don't believe? Let these pics change your mind.
