Most details about the highly-anticipated “Twin Peaks” revival have been so far kept under wraps. We know that the new series will air on Showtime some time in 2017, that it’s a continuation of the original ABC series (not a remake or a reboot), that much of the original cast will return to reprise their roles, and that it will be entirely directed by creator David Lynch. Now Showtime, Lynch, and executive producer/writer Mark Frost have announced the full cast list for the new “Twin Peaks” series with many, many new names. Some of these new cast members include Amanda Seyfried (“While We’re Young”), Michael Cera (“Scott Pilgrim vs. The World”), Naomi Watts (“Mulholland Dr.”), Tim Roth (“Reservoir Dogs”), Jim Belushi (“Show Me A Hero”), and Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder (“Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story”).
The new “Twin Peaks” series boasts a whopping 217 cast members for its entire run. While some of the cast are from the original “Twin Peaks” series, like Kyle MacLachlan as Agent Dale Cooper and Sheryl Lee as murder victim Laura Palmer, the majority of the cast is filled with new faces who haven’t yet appeared in the “Twin Peaks” world. Other names from the long list include Laura Dern (“Wild at Heart), Balthazar Getty (“Lost Highway”), Jeremy Davies (“Saving Private Ryan”), David Koechner (“Anchorman”), and Ernie Hudson (“Ghostbusters”). Explore the full list of cast members below. There are plenty of small surprises packed in there. The names in bold have appeared in the “Twin Peaks” universe before.
