What happened to you, Jacob Black???

To be fair, Taylor Lautner is only sporting this monstrosity of a beard for a TV role. You can all breathe a sigh of relief, Twihards.

The 22-year-old Twilight alum is currently starring on the BBC series Cuckoo as Dale — a jobless and drug-addicted American free spirit. The show is based on a family who goes to retrieve their daughter from the airport after a year-long excursion in the U.S., only to find out she's married Dale. (Andy Samberg originated the role, but was replaced by Taylor after the success of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.)

Tay made his debut on the season 2 premiere last night, and let's just say he made quite the statement with his grizzly look. (We much prefer our Jacob the old-fashioned way: clean-shaven…and shirtless.)

But if you think his beard is bad, wait until you see the Hollywood A-listers who don't exactly look as hot with too much fuzz!
