Taylor Lautner wants to scare the surgical gowns right off of fans. And that’s exactly what the newest star of “Scream Queens” plans on doing when the Fox drama returns for its spooky, sophomore debut this fall.
The actor, who was cast as the character Dr. Cassidy Cascade in the dark comedy, recently shared his excitement to partake in the horror series when he snapped a selfie with the show’s new poster.
“Oh look what I found..” the “Twilight” star captioned the image of him pointing to a billboard. The advertisement showed a creature covered in medical cloth cleverly screaming, “Oh. My. Gauze.”
Lautner will play an interesting role come Season 2 of “Scream Queens” as a surgeon who works at a hospital being run by Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis), the former Dean of Wallace University. Lautner’s character will stitch side-by-side by Dr. Brock Holt (John Stamos), the hospital’s “brilliant but secretive head surgeon.”
But Dr. Brock won’t be the only scrub-donning character with a secret. According to the character synopsis of Dr. Cassidy, he suffers from a “strange medical condition,” which may be the reason why he becomes a prime suspect when a “series of tragic events plague the institution.” Entertainment Weekly also reported that Lautner’s character will become romantically involved with Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd). Talk about an interesting doctor/patient relationship!
Lautner shot his selfie just a week before the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con. The cast of “Scream Queens” will reunite on Friday, July 22, at 6:45 p.m. PDT to attend the annual convention and discuss the new season with “exclusive details.” Thus far, Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts and Lea Michele have been the only actors confirmed to partake in the panel.
Fans of the show can catch new details about “Scream Queens” on Friday, July 22, at 6:45 p.m. PDT at the 2016 SDCC. Season 2 of the Fox dramedy will kick off on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 9 p.m. EDT.
