Deadline reports that the actor, best known for playing Jacob Black in the Twilight series, will play a huge part in the upcoming second series of Ryan Murphy’s comedy-horror show. There aren’t any details yet as to who Lautner, but he has reportedly been cast as one of the new male leads.
When Scream Queens returns for season 2 on FOX, fans will see the dark comedy switch settings from Wallace University to a hospital, where some of our favorite returning characters will come face-to-face with strange medical situations. Given the new setting, we can’t help but wonder if Lautner will portray a doctor…or perhaps even a patient!
The Twilight star isn’t the only new face we’ll be seeing when Scream Queens picks back up. It was recently announced that actor John Stamos had also signed on to appear in the upcoming second season of the show.
