Showtime ‘Twin Peaks’ Adds Ashley Judd to its Giant Mystery Cast
We’ve at least a year to go before Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival starts answering 25 years’ worth of mysteries, and the 2017 wait isn’t making things any easier. Ashley Judd is the latest big name to join the new Twin Peaks, but do we know who she might play?
Those lovely folk at Deadline again revealed the latest Twin Peaks casting, albeit without any real indication of whom the actress might end up playing in Showtime’s revival. At the very least, we’ve also learned that co-creator Mark Frost’s father Warren will also put in a cameo, likely reprising his role as Dr. Will Hayward.
David Lynch and Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost wrote the scripts, with Lynch confirmed to direct all episodes of the revival series, however many that turns out to be. Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti and stars Madchen Amick and Dana Ashbrook have all been rumored, along with Sheryl Lee, Michael Horse, Sherilyn Fenn, Miguel Ferrer, David Patrick Kelly, Richard Beymer and new additions James Belushi, Naomi Watts, Tom Sizemore, Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Forster, Peter Sarsgaard, Robert Knepper, Amanda Seyfried and Balthazar Getty.
The original Twin Peaks saw Agent Dale Cooper arriving in the titular town to investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer, only to find the mystery ran far deeper than he could ever expect, with a touch of the supernatural. The new iteration will pick up 25 years after the Season 2 finale in 1991, which saw MacLachlan’s Agent Cooper in a Black Lodge limbo.
Showtime may come forth with additional Twin Peaks details for 2017 soon, but what do we make of the latest details?
