Showtime’s Twin Peaks cast includes original members and newer famous faces
Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival has long been the subject of much Internet gossip, particularly around who would return from the series original incarnation. There was much hand-wringing over David Lynch’s return and the related budget issues, but, for my money, if you don’t have the original Twin Peaks cast members in tow, then you don’t have much of a reboot/revival.
Well, we can all rest assured now as Showtime has revealed the full Twin Peaks cast list, which numbers a massive 217 cast members. Most of the expected original cast members (Sherilyn Fenn, Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, etc) are set to return including David Duchovny whose memorable season two turn as a cross-dressing FBI agent shot him to fame before The X-Files took hold.
What’s more interesting is the bevvy of famous, non-Twin Peaks faces that decorate the cast list, including Monica Bellucci, Jim Belushi, Michael Cera, Richard Chamberlain, Jeremy Davies, Laura Dern, Balthazar Getty, Ashley Judd, David Koechner, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Matthew Lillard, Trent Reznor, Tim Roth, Amanda Seyfried, Tom Sizemore, Eddie Vedder and Naomi Watts. There’s no word on how extensive these roles will be if anything beyond cameos. The full cast list is included below.
As per usual, the plot and additional specifics behind the reboot have been kept under wraps. David Lynch directs his own scripts which were co-written by Mark Frost. Filming is reportedly complete with the series still targeted to air on Showtime in 2017.
