In a strange bit of casting news, Twilight‘s Taylor Lautner has joined the BBC Three comedy series Cuckoo for its second season. We haven’t heard much from or about Lautner since the end of the sparkling vegetarian vampire series, and now it appears he’ll be changing things up by signing on to a BBC series.
Cuckoo was one of BBC Three’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,” said Zai Bennett, Controller, BBC Three.
Added executive producer Ash Atalla, “Cuckoo is one of my favourite shows I’ve ever been involved in. We can’t wait to come back bigger and better.”
Ben Taylor is back directing season two with series creators Robin French and Kieron Quirke back as writers.
Details on the Cuckoo Plot:

Shortly after renewing their wedding vows, Cuckoo (Andy Samberg) flew the coop to continue researching his book. While on walkabout in the foothills of the Himalayas, he went missing… eventually presumed dead.
It’s now two years since his disappearance and life in the Thompson family house is only just getting back to normal. Ken (Greg Davies) and Lorna (Helen Baxendale) are looking forward to a future without the kids under their feet. Dylan (Tyger Drew-Honey) is about to go to university and Rachel (Tamla Kari) is rebuilding her life with her new boyfriend, a nice-but-dull lawyer, Ben. Despite appearances, Cuckoo’s absence is still felt – not least by his young widow, Rachel. Everyone worries she’s lost her mojo since the tragic events in Asia.
This fragile equilibrium is well and truly shattered when a handsome and mysterious young stranger (Lautner) appears in Lichfield, looking for the man who found fame and philosophy in the simplest of hot snacks: the jack-et po-ta-to.
