Taylor Lautner Will Join The ‘Scream Queens’ Pack As A Series Regular
Twilight wolfie and general hottie Taylor Lautner has been cast as a series regular in season 2 of Scream Queens.
TV Line reports that Taylor Lautner will join the upcoming season of Scream Queens, playing character Dr. Cassidy Cascade that suffers from a weird medical condition and becomes a suspect after multiple tragedies take place at the hospital.
Lautner confirmed the news and expressed his excitement for his new role in a post on his Facebook page earlier today:
“Big news everyone!! Thrilled to be joining @screamqueensFox it’s going to be such a blast playing Dr. Cassidy Cascade. The season 2 premiere is Tuesday, September 20 at 9pm on Fox!”
The young actor will appear in the show alongside John Stamos, who was announced as a series regular last week, along with returning stars: Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd and Abigail Breslin.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Lautner’s character will at some point become involved with Billie Lourd’s Chanel #3.
Most fans seem satisfied with the 24-year-old’s casting in the horror comedy, however there are a few who are not quite as supportive.
