‘Twin Peaks': Where’s Donna? Lara Flynn Boyle’s Odd History With the Show

21 May 2017 1:42 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

There are some notable omissions from the 217 names on the cast list for Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” revival, including Heather Graham (who played Annie Blackburn) and Piper Laurie (Catherine Martell). But the most noticeable absence may be that of Lara Flynn Boyle. Boyle played the good-hearted best friend of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). And while her omission from the giant cast list is disappointing, it isn’t a huge surprise. Boyle was famously recast in the “Twin Peaks” prequel film “Fire Walk With Me” — in which the role of Donna was played by Moira Kelly, who is also not appearing in the revival, »

The Unexpected, Groundbreaking, Cult Phenomenon of ‘Twin Peaks’

19 May 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

What do you tell people to expect before watching Twin Peaks? It’s as complicated an answer as what to expect when you meet David Lynch. Just ask the man: “They expect, like, a person that's 5-foot-8. Who's very hairy. Who's had most of their teeth removed and who's just gotten out of the hospital,” the filmmaker said in 1990.

Et spoke with Lynch and the cast of Twin Peaks throughout the unexpected, groundbreaking series’ short-lived initial run from 1990 to 1991 on ABC. The TV phenomenon, which returns Sunday, May 21 for a third season on Showtime, showcased Lynch’s penchant for challenging our initial perceptions of everyday life and suggesting there’s always something more going on.

Twin Peaks Revival: David Lynch Defends His Intense Spoilerphobia, Addresses Mia Donna, Reflects on Polarizing Season 2: 'It Sucked'

19 May 2017 4:42 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Just a reminder that he will not discuss any character or plot info about the new Twin Peaks.”

The above heads-up was delivered to me last month from a Showtime rep ahead of my one-on-one phone interview with Twin Peaks co-creator David Lynch, and it hardly came as a surprise. The famously tight-lipped auteur has been shrouding his 18-hour Twin Peaks revival (premiering Sunday at 9/8c) in the kind of secrecy that would prompt a “Chill out, dude!” from even Matt Weiner. So what’s a spoiler hound — and self-described Twin Peaks junkie — like myself to do? Line up a bevy of vague softballs, »

Inside the Roller-Coaster Journey to Get David Lynch’s ‘Twin Peaks’ Back on TV

9 May 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It came to David Lynch in a flash:

A red room. A dream version of Laura Palmer. An older Special Agent Dale Cooper, silent and pensive. The Man From Another Place, speaking cryptically: “That gum you like is going to come back in style.”

It was early 1989, and Lynch was hard at work on “Twin Peaks.” He and co-creator Mark Frost were trying to meet the deadlines of ABC, the network that had commissioned a drama about love, pie and murder in a Pacific Northwest town. Lynch was under pressure to create scenes that would allow the pilot to be released as a TV movie in case it didn’t get picked up to series. But the filmmaker didn’t have any ideas for footage that could wrap up the story neatly enough to please a movie audience.

Then he walked outside during an early-evening break from editing and folded his arms on the roof of a »

From Gwen Stefani to Kristen Stewart, the Most Cringe-Worthy Ways Cheating Scandals Were Unearthed

10 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cheaters, beware.  It's Scandals Week here at E! News, and what better way to relive a few Hollywood romances than with the ones that went very sour, very quickly? Not even the most A-list of A-listers can escape the perils of an extramarital affair, and some controversies are so outrageous, you'd think they belonged only in the movies and on TV. Take, for example, the time David Spade found out Lara Flynn Boyle had cozied up to Jack Nicholson only because of a car accident that hit tabloid covers. Or when Iggy Azalea caught Nick Young with other women thanks to their home's security footage system. Seriously, crazy.  Check out the most cringe-worthy ways »

The Tao of Nicolas Cage: ‘Red Rock West’

14 March 2017 9:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

An honest Cage gets caught up in an offbeat thriller.“Adios, Red Rock.”

As we celebrate Texas Week here at Fsr I knew I wanted to make sure this week’s Tao of Cage had a little Texas twang. Unfortunately I do very little planning in advance and hardly ever think things through. Last week I wrote about Joe, which would have been the perfect choice for Texas Week. Joe isn’t just Nicolas Cage’s most Texas movie but I do believe it’s his only movie that actually takes place in Texas. Go figure.

There may not be another Cage movie that take place in Texas but in 1992 Cage did play a drifter from Texas. This week we’re talking Red Rock West!

In this offbeat thriller Cage stars as Michael Williams, a former Marine from Odessa now looking for work in Wyoming. A friend gives him a tip about a job opportunity on an »

Blu-ray Reviews: Poltergeist II: The Other Side and Poltergeist III Collector’s Editions

16 February 2017 9:56 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

There was never really a need to sequelize 1982’s Poltergeist. It told a complete story. It vanquished the evil spirit haunting the house by film’s end. Heck, it even vanquished the house itself. But because the original movie was a hit and it was the ’80s, the Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg collaboration got not just one sequel but two, despite the fact that it does not lend itself to being a franchise. New villains and new mythology—and eventually even new family members—were introduced to keep the story going, albeit with mixed results. And while the sequels have their fans, they’re hardly among the most beloved horror films of the decade. Thanks to Scream Factory’s new Collector's Editions of both, horror fans now have the chance to reevaluate them in the best possible format.

Though released four years after the 1982 original, Poltergeist II: The Other Side »

After the recent news that the “Twin Peaks” revival has finally landed a premiere date, we now have our first real look at the show’s long-awaited return — and it’s every bit as off-kilter and enigmatic as you’d imagine.

David Lynch (and, by extension, Mark Frost) has been characteristically tight-lipped about what this upcoming batch of episodes — the first since “Twin Peaks” was canceled after its disappointing second season in 1991 — will entail, making this new footage our first substantive indication of what to expect. Not seen here, unfortunately, are all the original cast members who are still with us but not involved in the show’s third season: Piper Laurie, Lara Flynn Boyle, »

David Lynch talks 'Twin Peaks' at TCA event

9 January 2017 4:20 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The elusive filmmaker and artist attended the Showtime session at the annual Television Critics Association press tour on Monday and spoke cryptically about his reboot of the beloved series.

Lynch revealed that Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost reached out to him “many years ago” and suggested a return to the creepy world they created in Washington state for ABC back in the 1990s.

“We met at Musso & Frank and talked, that’s what got us going again for this one.”

The pair worked on the script via Skype. Showtime president David Nevins said FBI Agent Dale Cooper’s return to the setting of the original series forms the backbone of the reboot.

Besides Kyle MacLachlan, returning original cast include Mädchen Amick in the role of Shelly Johnson and Kimmy Robertson as sheriff’s office receptionist Lucy Moran.

Lara Flynn Boyle and Joan Chen will not return to the 18-episode package.
