In news that is sure to disappoint a lot of longtime Twin Peaks fans, it is being reported today that one of the actors behind a major character has declined to reprise his role for this Showtime revival. When Twin Peaks returns in summer 2017, there will be a new Sheriff in town. But it sounds like his replacement might not be too shabby.
According to TVLine, Michael Ontkean has decided to sit this latest incarnation of the cult series out completely. In the original Twin Peaks, which ran for only two seasons on ABC between April, 1990 and June, 1991, the actor appeared in the beloved role of Sheriff Harry S. Truman. The character might not get retired, though.
Rumor has it that iconic cult actor Robert Forster is being courted to step into the very large shoes of Sheriff Truman. Though, there is some speculation that he may actually be playing »
This is a damn fine disappointment.
When Twin Peaks resurfaces on Showtime in Summer 2017, there will be a new sheriff in town.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Michael Ontkean has opted not to reprise his beloved role of Sheriff Harry S. Truman in the upcoming limited-run revival. Rumor has it that veteran actor Robert Forster (Heroes, Karen Sisco) has stepped in to replace Ontkean as the town’s top lawman, although it’s unclear if he will be playing Truman or a new sheriff.
Halloween is almost here and it is time to snuggle in with your cats/significant other/or whatever else makes you feel snuggly and warm and get to binge watching some weird or scary shows. The weather is getting cooler and the atmosphere is getting spookier so check out these four television shows for the weird, scary, and downright odd.
Twin Peaks has everything. Murder, serial killers, possession by the other worldly, love triangles, amnesia, a lady who hears a log talk to her, drugs, and sex. But the best part of the series is Agent Dale Cooper played by Kyle MacLachlan and Sherilyn Fenn as Audrey Horne. Both are gorgeous and Agent Cooper is marvelously eccentric while falling in love with the life that is Twin Peaks.
While this show isn’t really scary, it is the definition of weird. The supernatural aspects of the show kept »

It looks like Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival – with David Lynch and Mark Frost at the helm – is starting to come together. Following the news that Amanda Seyfried has nabbed a role in the show, we’ve now heard of another new addition to the cast - Peter Sarsgaard has signed up for a part.
TV Line broke the news, reporting that Sarsgaard has been cast in ‘an unspecified recurring role.’ That, um, doesn’t give us much to go on, speculation-wise.
Mr Sarsgaard, of course, has an extensive body of work behind him. A few highlights include Jarhead, Dead Man Walking and An Education. Soon he’ll be seen in Black Mass with Johnny Depp and in Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven.

While David Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost have tried to keep details of their Twin Peaks revival more under wraps than the location of the Black Lodge, little snippets of casting info keep leaking. TV Line reports that Peter Sarsgaard has taken a recurring role in the show. Exactly what that shape the new series' ensemble is taking (and how Sarsgaard will fit into it) is still largely a mystery, but we do know that Kyle MacLachlan is confirmed as returning as Agent Dale Cooper, while Ray Wise, Sheryl Lee and Sherilyn Fenn are all apparently returning and Amanda Seyfried, Robert Knepper and Balthazar Getty are among the new additions. Lynch and co-creator Mark Frost are shooting the series now in Washington state, with 18 episodes planned for the Showtime cable network at some point in 2017. And to keep everyone intrigued, the channel has put out a tiny teaser, featuring footage »
Peter Sarsgaard is one of the new cast members joining Showtime's Twin Peaks, TV Line reports. At least Sarsgaard won't be alone in this regard: He joins Amanda Seyfried, Prison Break's Robert Knepper, and Brothers & Sisters' Balthazar Getty in new roles on the show. As expected, Showtime has been mysterious about the whole affair, and declined to confirm Sarsgaard's participation or what role he might play. Thus far, while many from the original cast are expected to return, the network has only officially confirmed the participation of its protagonist Kyle MacLachlan, who is reprising his role as Agent Dale Cooper. Co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost are currently shooting Twin Peaks in Washington with an airdate for sometime in 2017, and we'll finally figure out what's going on in the Red Room. (Kidding! Probably not.) »

Peter Sarsgaard is ordering himself a damn fine cup of coffee and joining Showtime’s upcoming Twin Peaks revival in a recurring role. The casting news was first reported Tuesday morning by TVLine. No other details are known regarding Sargaard’s role except that it will be recurring. In fact, Showtime has declined on the casting report. However, Showtime has yet to confirm any member of the Twin Peaks revival cast except for Kyle MacLachlan, who is set to reprise his role as Agent Dale Cooper. Other notable names that are reported to be starring in the series include Amanda Seyfried (Big Love), Balthazar Getty (Brothers and Sisters), and Robert Knepper (Prison Break). While Sarsgaard is most well-known for his work in films, including the Johnny Depp-led Black Mass, which just hit theaters last month, he has appeared in multiple TV series in recent years. Earlier this year, he »

That’s some damn good casting.
A Showtime rep declined to comment.
Sarsgaard is the latest Twin Peaks neophyte to board the limited-series continuation of the ’90s classic, joining Prison Break‘s Robert Knepper, Brothers & Sisters’ Balthazar Getty and Big Love‘s Amanda Seyfried. To date, the only piece of casting Showtime has officially confirmed is Kyle MacLachlan, who will reprise his role as Agent Dale Cooper. »
During the season premiere of Homeland last night, Showtime released a brief teaser trailer for their highly-anticipated Twin Peaks revival series. The video doesn't feature any new footage, but does offer a glimpse at footage from the original series, featuring Michael J. Anderson as The Man From Another Place, who is seen dancing in The Black Lodge. The actor hasn't been confirmed to return for the new Twin Peaks series yet, but the actor himself recently has said that he isn't coming back.
Welcome to Twin Peaks notes that the actor previously revealed on his official Facebook page in late August that he is not returning for the new Twin Peaks. When a fan saw that he is listed on the show's IMDb page, updated last week, the actor replied that his purported involvement is, "news to me." It's possible that the actor is just playing coy, or that he »
Loved Inside Out? You may be one of the many people praying for a sequel to this year's animated hit. Pixar is certainly no stranger to creating franchises out of standalone films (see Toy Story 2 and 3, Cars 2, Monsters University, the upcoming Finding Dory, and more), but that doesn't necessarily mean Inside Out will automatically get the sequel treatment. The studio has yet to confirm anything, so we went straight to the cast! We caught up with some of them during a press day for the film, which is out on DVD on Oct. 13 (and Blu-ray on Nov. 3), and picked their brains about what they know. "I have not heard anything about a sequel, but I am hoping that there is one, for sure," said Kaitlyn Dias, who voices Riley. "I would love to be able to continue working on something as - 'awesome' isn't even a good enough »

The Prison Break vet will reportedly recur on the cult hit’s upcoming continuation, according to our sister site Deadline. Though details of his character are being kept under wraps, he joins Balthazar Getty (Brothers & Sisters) and Amanda Seyfried (Big Love) in the pay cabler’s revival.
Thus far, Kyle MacLachlan is the only original cast member officially confirmed to return. Production on the series is underway in Washington state, »
The population of Twin Peaks just got a little bit larger. Robert Knepper has been cast in Showtime’s upcoming revival of the early ’90s mystery series, joining returning star Kyle MacLachlan and recent addition Amanda Seyfried. Get the latest on the Twin Peaks revival after the jump. Deadline broke the Twin Peaks Robert Knepper casting news. Details on his […]

David Lynch is trying to keep as many secrets as he can about the new, Showtime-based version of Twin Peaks. But even he can’t quite keep the tightest lid on casting stories. So now we know that Robert Knepper will be joining the ensemble.Exactly what that shape that ensemble is taking (and how Knepper will fit into it) is still largely a mystery, but we do know that Kyle MacLachlan is confirmed as returning as Agent Dale Cooper (though – spoiler alert – what form he’ll take given how he was left in the original series and follow-up prequel/sequel movie is anyone's guess), while Ray Wise, Sheryl Lee and Sherilyn Fenn are all apparently returning and Amanda Seyfried is reportedly on for a role.Co-creator Mark Frost is once again working with Lynch, having co-written the series that the director is overseeing. Angelo Badalamenti is once again doing the music, »
Composer Bear McCreary says, “I've always adored superheroes and their musical fanfares”, adding, “Collaborating with Marvel, Joss Whedon and his creative team is truly a dream come true. Together, we craft a score each week that I hope measures up to the insanely high standards of Marvel fans around the world.”
The prolific composer's addition to the Whedonverse with Marvel's Agents of Shield was hailed by fans. Yet when the show premiered, to the surprise of many the score itself seemed understated, especially in comparison to more bombastic superhero themes, and especially in light of McCreary's memorably eclectic, unconventional score for Joss Whedon's favourite show, the rebooted Battlestar Galactica. (Not to mention the fact that 'Bear' is an awesome name, so it seems almost a waste for him to write anything less than bombastic.)
Perhaps there's a parallel to be drawn between the music and the (generally) non-superpowered characters. »
Sad news for Twin Peaks fans and lovers of classic TV. Actress Catherine E. Coulson passed away on Monday at the age of 71. She succumbed to cancer. She was perhaps best known as the Log Lady on David Lynch's cult series.
Twin Peaks is being revived on Showtime, with all-new episodes shooting later this year. Pre-production is happening now in Washington state. Varitey confirms that Catherine E. Coulson was set to reprise her role as the Log Lady, a character which she also played in director David Lynch's film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, which served as a prequel to the canceled ABC show.
More recently, Catherine E. Coulson appeared in a fan-favorite role as proprietor of Marionberry farm on Portlandia, which reunited her with Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan, who plays the Mayor of Portland. She also starred in the movie Redwood Highway opposite Shirley Knight and Tom Skerritt. »
About five years ago I made my way over to Montana Street in Santa Monica to attend a screening of the magnificently loopy adaptation of Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers, directed by Paul Verhoeven, which was showing at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica. The screening was a star-studded affair, featuring Verhoeven in an on-stage interview with Ed Neumeier, the film’s screenwriter, and a couple of the other artists and craftsmen who were involved in the making of the film. (They were stars to the packed house anyway, even though I can’t for the life of me remember who else comprised the panel.) Before the screening, Verhoeven set up shop to sign copies of his recently published book, the somewhat controversial Jesus of Nazareth, a historical account of Jesus’ life written with matter-of-fact detail and iconoclasm from Verhoeven’s singular perspective as a member of the group of »

Yet a swimming pool splash-about with Kyle MacLachlan in Robocop director Paul Verhoeven's 1995 skin flick Showgirls - the Us's first and only big-budget Nc-17 - unfortunately torpedoed her career before it began.
But as Showgirls celebrates its 20th anniversary this week, having been reappraised and reborn as a midnight movie regular, a musical masterpiece (tagline: "Singing. Dancing. Tits") and a classic exploitation film of our time (not our words, but Jim Jarmusch's), we look at what happened to the actress best known as Nomi Malone.
1. She won two Razzies
Two more are entering Twin Peaks. Amanda Seyfried and Balthazar Getty have just signed on for Showtime’s revival of the ’90s mystery series, joining returning star Kyle MacLachlan. Get details on the Twin Peaks Amanda Seyfried and Balthazar Getty casting after the jump. Details on Seyfried’s character are being kept under wraps, but she’s described as a “major” […]
