‘Scream Queens’ Adds Taylor Lautner as Series Regular for Season 2

Earl is one of the new characters for Season 2, joining other fresh additions John Stamos and Taylor Lautner. The rest of the A-list cast returning from the first season is reprising their original roles. Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Glen Powell and Niecy Nash will all be back.

The second season moves from the sorority-set to an all-new location: a hospital where some of the most fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation.

Before “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life,” Earl was in the Fox family — he had a recurring role in “Glee,” in which he appeared in 17 episodes, marking a reunion for him and “Scream Queens” creator Ryan Murphy. He also starred on the TBS comedy “Ground Floor.” His film credits include “The Gridiron Gang” and “Lazarus.” “Cooper Barrett” was cancelled after one season on Fox, and it aired during the 2015-16 season.

“Scream Queens” hails from Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, and is produced by 20th Century Fox TV.

Earl is repped by Abrams Artists Agency, Untitled Entertainment, Crimson Media and attorney Lev Ginsburg at Ginsburg Daniels.
