    A little rough and tumble doesn't scare off Taylor Lautner!

    The Twilight hunk was seen filming for his latest project, the second season of the popular BBC comedy Cuckoo, which he is set to star in.

    The 22-year-old was shown doing his own stunts and showing off his acrobatic skills as he leapt across buildings into the wee hours of the morning in London.

    Just last month it was revealed that Lautner was set to replace Andy Samberg in the show.

    According to The Guardian, the heartthrob will play a "mysterious young stranger who shows up in Lichfield, Staffordshire" (where the show is based). Lautner will costar with Brit actors Greg Davies and Helen Baxendale.

    Samberg originally starred in Cuckoo's first season but disappeared at the end when his character traveled to the Himalayas.

    BBC3 controller Zai Bennett recently gave his stamp of approval on the casting news.

    "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."

    The show's executive producer Ash Atalla added, "Cuckoo is one of my favorite shows I've ever been involved in. We can't wait to come back bigger and better."
