According to TVLine, Tim is set to guest star in two episodes (2×12 and 2×13) of the current season of Lucifer. Episode 12 is set to be aired on Jan. 30th, 2017, as the show returns after the holiday break.
Tim will play Dr. Jacob Carlisle, a brilliant neuroscience professor whose encounter with Lucifer will have deadly ramifications on someone the Devil cares about. And as we all know, that is a short list.
Lucifer‘s showrunner is Joe Henderson, who previously worked on White Collar as executive producer.
