For some folks Rick Springfield is the singer / musician who did the hits Jessie's Girl, Love Somebody, Affair of the Heart, and Human Touch. To other's he was the actor to first portray Detective Nick Knight, Christopher Chance / Human Target and of course Dr. Noah Drake. He's also had a key role as himself on Californication. And most recently he played opposite of Meryl Streep in Ricki And The Flash and appeared in the second season of True Detective. Needless to say both sides of his resume are impressive.

After having possessed Castiel last season, Satan now needs a new body to possess and he finds himself comfortable in the body of Vincent Vincente, a rock star trying to make a comeback.
