Taylor Lautner is officially headed to television!
According to BBC, the 22-year-old actor just landed a role on the comedy series Cuckoo, which is about a couple whose young daughter returns from a year away with her American husband.
Andy Samberg originally played the unwanted son-in-law (Cuckoo), but will not return for the second series due to his success with Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
The second series will pick up two years after his character disappeared while walking in the Himalayas and is presumed dead. The young daughter, Rachel (Tamla Kari), finds love again with “a nice-but-dull lawyer.” Taylor will play a mysterious stranger who arrives to turn their lives around.
“I’m delighted to welcome it back with the addition of superstar Taylor Lautner“, Controller of BBC Three Zai Bennett said in a statement, adding that it would be “one of the comedy treats of the year”.
