British actors are filling up our TV schedule here in the U.S., so we think it’s only fair we send a few of our stars their way in exchange.

The latest addition to this transatlantic traffic is Lindsay Lohan, the Mean Girls star who’s not been seen on screen since she appeared in an episode of CBS comedy Two Broke Girls way back in 2014.

Deadline reports she’ll star in Sick Note, an intriguing new show we told you about last year that stars Anglo faves Rupert Grint and Nick Frost. They play, respectively, a compulsive liar called Daniel Glass, who’s stuck in a failing relationship and a dead-end job, and Ian Glennis, the doctor who mistakenly tells him he’s got cancer.

Okay, so, granted, a cancer misdiagnosis may not sound like the funniest of situations — but all the signs point to this being a very British take on Breaking Bad.

Lindsay will play Katerina West, the daughter of Rupert’s character’s boss, who’s played by none other than Miami Vice star and her fellow countryman Don Johnson.

Her character won’t appear until the show’s second season, however, which has just started filming in London. The first season is due to air this fall in the U.K., with no plans as yet for a U.S. broadcast, though that might change with the addition of Lindsay to the cast.

And by the looks of the tweet she posted yesterday (June 12), her co-stars Rupert and Nick are making her comeback TV role a fun job.

Do you think Lindsay can make a comeback with this role?
