Taylor Lautner, the sexy werewolf actor from Twilight has joined Scream Queens series and will feature in its second season. Scream Queens is a horror comedy which for this season will be set in the hospital, whereas before it was set in a mixture of the college campus and a hospital. Lautner will be cast as Dr Cassidy Cascade, who is a doctor at the hospital but suffers from his own abnormal medical condition; he “suffers from a strange medical condition and becomes a suspect when a series of tragic events plagues the institution.”

Taylor Lautner joins John Stamos as new cast member

John Stamos was in Grandfathered and Fuller House and will play Brock Holt, a surgeon. The two new actors will join the original cast of Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Cutis, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Glen Powell, Niecy Nash, Keke Palmer and Billie Lourd.

Taylor Lautner moving from werewolf to doctor

Taylor Lautner is most known for his role as Jacob Black in Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga film series, he has however had other roles since then, he starred in The Ridiculous Six which was a comedy feature on Netflix, and he has also starred in Cuckoo which is a comedy series in the UK.

This will be Lautner’s first US TV series as a regular character. Nevertheless it has been hard for the young actor to move away from being recognized simply as Jacob Black.

Other famous people who have starred in the series are Ariana Grande, who made a very brief appearance and Nick Jonas (famous for his singing) who featured in a few episodes and turned to be a member of the group of Red Devil killers.

The 24-year-old American actor and model will be one of the hottest doctors on the new season and will no doubt attract many female viewers to the show. Ryan Murphy’s decision to cast two good looking males as new doctors/surgeons in the series is definitely a step in the right direction to broadening the audience of the show. Scream Queens Season 2 will premiere on Tuesday 2nd September at 9/8c.
