The Scream Queens hospital is quickly filling up: EW can exclusively reveal that actor James Earl (Glee) will be joining season 2 of Fox’s horror comedy as a regular and one of the male leads alongside John Stamos and Taylor Lautner.

Earl, who most recently appeared on Fox’s Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life, will play a character named Candy Striper in the second season, which is set in a creepy hospital owned by Jamie Lee Curtis’ Cathy Munsch.

Queens reunites Earl with Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan. The actor played Azimio, a member of the McKinley Titans football team who often bullied the New Directions members.

Scream Queens premieres Sept. 20th at 9pm on Fox.
