“Scream Queens” season 2 promises to raise the heat index as the horror-comedy cast yet another hot actor.

Actor Taylor Lautner will join “Scream Queens” season 2 as Dr. Cassidy Cascade, Entertainment Weekly reported. However, his new role seemed to cast him as a hot villain this time around. Due to the doctor’s “bizarre medical condition,” many assume his connection to the string of unfortunate events at the hospital.

His character also gets involved with Chanel #3, played by actress Billie Lourd, the publication added. Lautner’s latest role could be the “perfect project” for him, according to the Geek Tyrant. The publication noted his string of films that didn’t quite pass muster. Hence, Ryan Murphy’s TV series could be his ticket to renewed fame, the publication remarked.

The 24-year-old actor took to Instagram to express his excitement, Mail Online revealed. He also posted a fanart of his character, Dr. Cassidy Cascade, that certainly did justice to his hotness.
