Twin Peaks may have signed on two familiar faces to David Lynch fans

January 12th, 2016 by Marc Comments

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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
