What a way to start off the week! The formidable cast list for Showtime's forthcoming Twin Peaks revival series was revealed this morning, and man, is it a doozy. In addition to boasting such key returning players as Kyle MacLachlan (Dale Cooper), Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer/Maddy Ferguson) and Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne), there are a number of surprising A-listers in the mix including Michael Cera, Trent Reznor, Amanda Seyfried and Naomi Watts. On the downside, a not-insignificant number of cast members from both the original series and the 1992 prequel film Fire Walk with Me are completely absent from the list. Where, for instance, is Lara Flynn Boyle (or Moira Kelly, for that matter)? Michael Ontkean? Piper Laurie? Joan Chen? Anyone from the mill? (Literally, there is no one from the mill.) So while I'm thankful that most of the major players are back in action, I can't help but »

Back in November, CBS president Leslie Moonves offered an update on Showtime's highly-anticipated revival of Twin Peaks, revealing during a conference call that the show won't debut until sometime in 2017. While an exact release date wasn't given, this was a disappointing blow to many fans, who had hoped the show would air in 2016. In the series finale that aired back in 1991, Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) told Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), "I'll see you again in 25 years," but now it seems this reunion will happen a bit later. Showtime president David Nevins confirmed Leslie Moonves' earlier statement, revealing at the TCA winter tour, courtesy of TV Line, that Twin Peaks is now set for an early 2017 debut. Here's what the network president had to say, offering an update on director David Lynch's progress.

When Showtime first announced their Twin Peaks revival, the only cast member confirmed was original series star Kyle MacLachlan, who is returning as Special Agent Dale Cooper. In the months that followed, several other Twin Peaks stars were rumored to be returning, but none of them have been confirmed by Showtime. Today, Deadline reports that original series star Sherilyn Fenn is coming back to play Audrey Horne.
The site says that her character will have a "major presence" in the new series, although no plot details have been uncovered at this time. In the original series, Audrey is the daughter of Benjamin Horne (Richard Beymer), who was discovered to be the secret lover of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) before her death. Audrey was infatuated with Dale Cooper throughout the series, as she tried to help him in his investigation of Laura Palmer's death.

For a night known as Hollywood's most notorious open-bar gala, the Golden Globes ceremony remains shrouded in mystery.
Most viewers probably don't even know who presents it (the Hollywood Foreign Press Association), how many voting members it has (only about 90), or what qualifies them to pass judgment on movies and television. Yet movie fans and awards mavens continue to take the Globes seriously as a precursor to the Academy Awards, since some of the Globe honorees will indeed go on to win Oscars. With Ricky Gervais set to reprise his hosting duties this weekend, here are 25 things you need to know about the Globes.

Founded in October 1943 by eight foreign-market journalists, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (then called the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association) held its first awards ceremony the following spring, as a luncheon at 20th Century Fox.
