Taylor Lautner, the lovelorn werewolf in the "Twilight" series, is making the leap to American television with a role in season two of “Scream Queens.” To date the 24-year-old’s small screen appearances have been confined to the BBC Three comedy series “Cuckoo” (pictured above), taking over the lead role for two seasons following Andy Samberg’s departure after season one. Lautner is thrilled that show has been renewed well into 2018. (It is currently streaming on Netflix.)

The decision was a no-brainer, having come directly from mega-producer Ryan Murphy himself.
