Many familiar faces are set to show up in the new Twin Peaks…
With shooting on season three of David Lynch’s supernatural thriller/weird ass soap now completed, Showtime has released the full cast list of 217 actors – some old, some new and some A-list...
Kyle MacLachlan will be returning to the central role of wide-eyed FBI agent Dale Cooper. He’s joined by Sheryl Lee, who played both the murdered Laura Palmer and her cousin Maddy, while Laura’s father Leland (Ray Wise) and mother Sarah (Grace Zabriskie) are also back. David Duchovny will be donning a dress once more as Special Agent Denise Bryson, while Miguel Ferrer returns as tactless Albert Rosenfield.
Sherilyn Fenn, Mädchen Amick, Dana Ashbrook and James Marshall will also be reprising the roles that made them stars, and we will finally discover what happened to Richard Beymer’s nefarious Ben Horne. But perhaps most exciting is the news that Catherine E Coulson – Twin Peaks’ famous Log Lady – is appearing. Coulson passed away last year, but seems to have recorded a few scenes in the early weeks of filming.
Super-starry talent joining the show includes Naomi Watts, Monica Bellucci, Tim Roth and Michael Cera. Laura Dern, Amanda Seyfried and Tom Sizemore are also coming to town.
From a music background, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor will be rubbing shoulders with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, while indie pop star Sky Ferreira and singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten will all be appearing on screen.
There are some surprising absences, like Michael J Anderson’s Man From Another Place. The Black Lodge’s sharpest dancer was intimately connected to Carel Struycken’s Giant, who is coming back. What could have become of him?
Piper Laurie’s villainous Catherine Martell is AWOL, and there’s also no sign of Lara Flynn Boyle or Moira Kelly, who both played Donna Hayward. Annie? Shrugs – Heather Graham is nowhere to be seen. Finally, Joan Chen is also MIA, meaning that Josie’s spirit is likely still trapped in that doorknob.
Twin Peaks will be airing in the UK on Sky Atlantic in 2017.
Cherry pie with that?
