Taylor Lautner to Star in BBC Sitcom Cuckoo

Posted by monique On February - 12 - 2014 0 Comment

Taylor Lautner is shedding his former life as a werewolf and is becoming a comedy star. Lautner will star in the BBC sitcom “Cuckoo.”

According to People, the sitcom, originally starring Andy Samberg, followed a culture clash that happens when a middle-class English girl Rachel (Tamla Kari) brings home a hippie husband (nicknamed “Cuckoo”) after meeting him abroad. Of course, the hijinks ensue when her parents (Greg Davies and Helen Baxendale) realize that she’s been transformed into a spiritual, New Age convert.

Samberg starred in the original first season, but had to forego his role in the second season due to the filming of Fox’s award-winning sitcom, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” Lautner’s role will be as a mysterious stranger who shows up two years after Cuckoo disappeared in the Himalayas researching a book, forcing Rachel to rebuild her life with her family.

“‘Cuckoo’ was one of BBC3′s most stand-out comedies, so I’m delighted to welcome it back with the addition of superstar Taylor Lautner joining the critically-acclaimed Greg Davies and an outstanding British comedy cast for what will be one of the comedy treats of the year,” BBC3 controller Zai Bennett to The Guardian.
