US actress Lindsay Lohan has joined Sky's upcoming comedy series Sick Note, alongside Rupert Grint!
Though Lindsay Lohan hadn't entirely stepped away from acting in the past few years, putting in guest appearances on 2 Broke Girls and Eastbound & Down, it's fair to say she's taken something of a break from the craft. The Mean Girls actress is set to star in Season 2 of the British comedy Sick Note, joining the likes of Rupert Grint and Nick Frost, the former playing a compulsive liar trapped in a failing relationship and dead-end job; Lohan will play the daughter of his boss (Don Johnson).
Posting a picture of herself with Grint and Frost, the 30-year-old said: "Back on set of my new TV show #SickNote."
The six-part Season 1 follows Daniel Glass (Grint), a compulsive liar stuck in a failing relationship and dead-end insurance job, who is under the thumb of an irrepressible boss (Johnson). Just when things couldn’t get any worse, Daniel is wrongly diagnosed with a terminal illness by his incompetent doctor Ian Glennis (Frost). When the error comes to light, Dr Glennis convinces Daniel to hide the truth of his misdiagnosis from colleagues, friends and family in a lie that spirals wildly out of control.
Jo Sargent, David Walliams and Miranda Hart’s King Bert produces Sick Note which is created and written by Saunders (Trollied) and Serafinowicz (The Mark Steel Lectures). Matt Lipsey (Little Britain) is director. Producer is Sarah Fraser, and Sargent exec produces. International distribution of both seasons will be handled by Sky Vision.
Lohan's fans have said they are delighted to see her making her comeback after years of ups and downs.
One follower said on Instagram: "Brilliant to see you working again. Don't waste that talent."
"Good to see you back in the game. Stay clean and healthy!" urged another.
Another happy fan seemed overcome by the news and tweeted: "IM CRYING YOU LOOK SO GOOD."
