Making the leap from the big screen to the small screen, Taylor Lautner will star in a new BBC sitcom.

Called "Cuckoo," the "Twilight" star is replacing Andy Samberg, who appeared in the series' first season.

Speaking of the add, BBC2 controller Zai Bennett gushed, "'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.

Joining him in the show will be British co-stars Greg Davies and Helen Baxendale. The big announcement comes as Taylor marks his 22nd birthday (February 11).
