Twin Peaks fans rejoice!
Two great new cast members have just signed up for the new series. Well, one new and one very much not.
Firstly, Laura Dern, she of Jurassic Park fame, is reportedly joining the Showtime show under David Lynch but as who? Well, “one tantalizing theory has the Oscar-nominated actress playing Agent Cooper’s never-before-seen secretary Diane. If true, that means Dern and Kyle MacLachlan would once again be paired as investigators, a super-cool nod to their roles in Lynch’s 1986 mystery noir Blue Velvet.”
How cool is that?! Don’t forget Lynch and Dern have worked together on Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart and Inland Empire, so this is very possibly on the money.
Next, the big casting news is that Sherilyn Fenn, who played Audrey, has reportedly signed on to reprise the role that’s expected to be major in the new series.
The actresses will join reportedly returning Kyle MacLachlan, Miguel Ferrer, Sheryl Lee as Laura Palmer, David Patrick Kelly and Richard Beymer.
Lynch is directing the new Twin Peaks installment from a script he co-wrote with fellow Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost.
