Lindsay Lohan is headed to the small screen — across the pond.
The Mean Girls actress has joined the Season 2 cast of the British comedy Sick Note, starring Rupert Grint (Harry Potter), Nick Frost (Into the Badlands) and Don Johnson, our sister site Deadline reports.
The series — which begins airing its first season this fall on UK broadcaster Sky 1 — follows Daniel Glass (Grint), an insurance rep who is wrongly misdiagnosed with a terminal illness and then decides to hide the truth from his colleagues, friends and family. Lohan will play the daughter of Daniel’s boss during Season 2, premiering in 2018.
Lohan’s TV credits include guest spots on 2 Broke Girls, Anger Management and Ugly Betty. She also starred as Elizabeth Taylor in the 2012 Lifetime film Liz & Dick.
