Well, this is certainly a casting switch we never saw coming!

Twilight's reigning shirtless star Taylor Lautner has been tapped to replace Andy Samberg in a British sitcom called Cuckoo on BBC.

The former Saturday Night Live funny guy was the first season's lead role, but his character disappeared to the Himalayas in the season finale.

Now, Taylor is stepping in to a play "a mysterious young stranger who shows up in Lichfield, Staffordshire" in the BAFTA-nominated TV series.

No word on whether Taylor will have to learn a British accent for his latest character. This will be his first television series since the hit Twilight saga.

The casting news was announced yesterday, which just so happened to be Taylor's birthday. He turned 22 on Tuesday.

Cheers to Taylor!
