The British comedy “Sick Note” has signed a new child star for its next season. Lindsay Loahn will join the cast of the second installment of the black comedy, and will share credits with Ruper Grint, who played Ron Weasley in “Harry Potter”saga, Don Johnson, and Nick Frost.
On Monday, the “Mean Girls” star shared a picture her Twitter account rocking a new haircut and posing next to her new co-stars. “Jokes with Rupert Grint and @nickjfrost on set of my new show ‘Sick Note,’” she wrote in the tweet.
“Sick Note” tells the story of Daniel Glass (Grint), a compulsive liar stuck in a failing relationship and a job with no future, under the thumb of irrepressible boss Kenny West (Don Johnson). Just when he thinks things can’t get worse, he is diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Due to his illness, everyone starts treating him better. But he soon discovers he was mistakenly diagnose by the world’s most incompetent oncologist, Dr. Ian Glennis (Nick Frost). Daniel now faces the decision to either tell the truth and go back to his old unhappy existence, or keep the secret and pretend he is sick.
Lohan will play Katerina West, Danile’s boss’s daughter.
The first season of “Sick Note” hasn’t even aired yet, but season 2 is currently shooting in the U.K.
Lohan last appeared on TV in 2014 on an episode of “Two Broke Girls”. That same year, she starred in the play “Speed-the-Plow,” and she’s been living in London ever since.
