Ryan Murphy sure knows how to cast attractive doctors, huh? Following the news that John Stamos will be joining Scream Queens as a “brilliant but secretive” head of surgery for season two, it’s been announced that Taylor Lautner will also be joining the show’s medical personnel as a series regular. Lautner will portray Dr. Cassidy Cascade, a doctor at the hospital where the anthology series’ upcoming season is based — no more college campuses, sorry! — who “suffers from a strange medical condition and becomes a suspect when a series of tragic events plagues the institution.” Lautner joins returning leads Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Glen Powell, and Niecy Nash, who are all reprising their roles. You have our permission to begin mentally picturing him wearing a stethoscope.
