Jacob vs. Lucifer

I found it interesting that Mark Pellegrino's character, Jacob, was referred to as being the Devil.... because in Supernatural he plays Lucifer, the Devil. The characters seem almost identical in disposition and personality. Both believe that they are the true rulers, have someone like a brother who wishes to kill them, and are fighting for the loyalty of the regular human population. So, now the question: does this hint that Jacob may indeed be of a more devious nature as his nameless enemy would have us believe?

Yeah, Jacob has a much more mysterious role which leaves us to continuesly ask ourselves who he is. Whilst everyone's familiar with the story of Lucifer, his lack of screen time might have something to do with it and the fact that we all want to see God now that we've seen Lucifer.

No I'd just say that it means Lucifer is simply not portrayed as good as Jacob, but that is definitely due to writing and not to acting.
