18 January 2015 9:31 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Actor George Dickerson, who played police detective John Williams in David Lynch’s “Blue Velvet,” has died, his son Dome Karukoski announced in a Facebook post. He was 81.

According to Karukoski, Dickerson died Jan. 10 after battling a long illness. He was living in New York.

Dickerson, who was also known for a recurring role as Police Commander Swanson on the first season of NBC’s “Hill Street Blues,” starred alongside Kyle MacLachlan in “Blue Velvet.” MacLachlan played a college student who brought a severed ear to Dickerson’s character. Laura Dern played Detective John Williams’ daughter in the crime drama.

Before acting, Dickerson has a versatile writing career, working as a poet, magazine writer, playwright and editor. He also served as a speechwriter for U.S. Congressman Robert Steele, and as a United Nations diplomat in Lebanon.

After a bout of writers block, Dickerson turned to acting, first having roles in off-Broadway plays. »

'Twin Peaks': Laura Palmer May Return for Showtime Series

16 January 2015 6:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in October, Showtime confirmed that it is bringing back the hit series Twin Peaks with a new nine-episode limited series slated to debut in 2016. During the network's TCA Winter Tour presentation earlier this week, it was confirmed that Kyle MacLachlan will be back as Special Agent Dale Cooper, and now we have word that two more original cast members are returning as well. During a recent Q&A session at the Twin Peaks UK Festival, Sheryl Lee, who played both Laura Palmer and Maddy Ferguson, confirmed that she and Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs) will appear on the series reboot. The news is quite fitting, since it was Sheryl Lee's Laura Palmer who told Kyle MacLachlan's Dale Cooper that she will see him again in 25 years, with the limited series set to debut 25 years after the original Twin Peaks ended in 1991.

Dana Ashbrook also hinted during the Q »

Week in Review: Tom Hardy exits ‘Suicide Squad’, Jake Gyllenhaal may replace

16 January 2015 12:19 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tom Hardy, who is a brilliant actor but sounds unintelligible, was forced this week to drop out of the superhero franchise in the making Suicide Squad. Tom Hardy was to be the lead Rick Flag, alongside Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevigne and Jared Leto, in a supervillain mash-up movie. But Hardy’s latest project, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s The Revenant, is running behind schedule, forcing the actor to pull out and leave the super villainy to someone else.

The Wrap is now reporting that Suicide Squad’s director David Ayer’s first choice to replace Hardy is Jake Gyllenhaal, who has never appeared in a superhero movie and previously worked with Ayer on the cop drama End of Watch. The Wrap points out that Gyllenhaal is currently at work on Southpaw for Antoine Fuqua, a boxing movie that required him to get absolutely jacked.

How Showtime Got David Lynch to Reboot 'Twin Peaks,' with Sheryl Lee Returning as Laura Palmer

16 January 2015 10:41 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Showtime Networks president David Nevins teased the hotly anticipated, nine-episode revival of David Lynch's beloved "Twin Peaks" during the recent TV Critics Association winter press tour. Though we won't see this third season til 2016, we do know that David Lynch is directing all the episodes, Kyle MacLachlan will return as Dale Cooper, Sheryl Lee will reprise the role of Laura Palmer, Sherilyn Fenn will probably be back as Audrey and that the new season is set in present day, 25 years after the haunting season two finale. So how did Showtime convince the notoriously elusive Lynch? According to AdWeek, in a twist on the typical pitching process, ""I was kind of begging them and hoping to pass muster with David Lynch," said Nevins, who added that "Lynch admired the "violent, weird" artwork in Nevins' office, with one piece that included "a bookshelf falling on a young girl; it's unclear which direction it's going. »

Lynch even tweeted a new photo of MacLachlan as Agent Cooper holding a “damn fine” cup of coffee. Here’s the official press release (via Collider) and photo (via David Lynch):

Thunderbirds Are Go!

ITV Studios has released the first photo of the CG-animated but supermarionation inspired new look of the Tracy brothers in the upcoming reinvention of the "Thunderbirds" franchise.

The first season of twenty-six episodes is due to arrive this Spring and ITV has enough confidence in the material that a second season has already been picked up for a 2016 broadcast. Rosamund Pike, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kayvan Novak and David Graham voice various characters within the show. [Source: Empire]

Fans got excited the other day when it was officially confirmed that Kyle MacLachlan would be returning to the role of Agent Dale Cooper for David Lynch's upcoming nine-episode "Twin Peaks" follow-up series on Showtime.

He may not be the only one returning though as a report has emerged that both Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee are rumored to be coming back to the series, even though their various characters »

What's Streaming: We're Back!

15 January 2015 9:30 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

A new year, a new you and a new Slackerwood! I took a break from this article for a while, but now I'm back and ready to bring you  recommendations of films you might have overlooked.  

In looking through my Netflix history, I discovered that 2014 was a big TV year for me. It seems like the website stepped its game up this past year, cranking out the latest season of current shows faster than before. (Except for Downton Abbey -- get on it, Netflix!) Here are a few television shows that came across my radar these past few months.

Twin Peaks -- When I learned writer/director David Lynch was creating a new season for the now 25-year-old show, I saw this as the sign to bring it up from the bottom of the list. FBI agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is sent to the town of Twin Peaks to »

'Twin Peaks' Returns: 25 characters we want to see in the Showtime revival

15 January 2015 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In case I haven't expressed this adequately: I am so, so excited for Showtime's "Twin Peaks" revival series. Truly overjoyed. I was a major fan of the original show and even the critically-lambasted prequel film "Fire Walk With Me" (despite the admittedly-weird "New Donna" phenomenon), and there are a bunch of characters I'm looking forward to catching up with. So who will return for David Lynch and Mark Frost's belated followup? With Monday's announcement that Kyle MacLachlan would be reprising his role as Agent Dale Cooper, it got me to thinking of who else I'd like to see when the show premieres next year. From Sherilyn Fenn's sultry Audrey Horne to the cryptic clairvoyant known as the Log Lady to David Duchovny's cross-dressing DEA agent Denise Bryson, below I've highlighted 25 characters I'm hoping to see when the show debuts next year. And true to the world that »

With the exciting news that Twin Peaks will be returning to our television sets in 2016 (not soon enough!) and the even more exciting news that Kyle MacLachlan will return as FBI Agent Dale Cooper, Food & Wine has been inspired enough by Cooper's love of coffee to rank all the caffeinated love that the fictitious town had to offer.

Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee rumoured for Twin Peaks return

14 January 2015 11:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We reported earlier in the week that Kyle MacLachlan has been officially confirmed to return to Twin Peaks as Special Agent Dale Cooper in Showtime’s new nine-part revival of David Lynch’s classic series from the early 1990s. Now Bloody Disgusting is reporting some big rumours concerning two more stars returning to the small Washington town.

Actresses Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee are coming back to the show, which on the face of it sounds very likely, but is strange in the sense that their characters (Audrey Horne, Laura Palmer, and Maddy Ferguson) presumably died in the previous run of the show. So could be see some flashbacks, flash-forwards or perhaps something much more spooky? We shall see soon enough, but our money is on something much more “far out” than anyone can think of.

These are of course just rumours at the moment, but from the show’s »

Rumor: Sherilyn Fenn & Sheryl Lee Returning For New Season Of 'Twin Peaks'

14 January 2015 8:46 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even though we've already laid out our 20 Most Anticipated TV Shows Of 2015, there is one big reason we've already got an eye on 2016: "Twin Peaks." The new nine-episode series will have David Lynch behind it for the entire run, and while plot details are still under wraps, all we do know is that the show will be set in the present day, pick up after the events of the original series, and oh yeah, Kyle MacLachlan is back. And it appears he won't be the only old school cast member returning. Bloody Disgusting is reporting that both Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee are coming back for more coffee. Their rumored additions are interesting because their characters — Audrey Horne, Laura Palmer, and Maddy Ferguson — are all (presumably) dead. Have they been resurrected? Maybe they're ghosts? Flashbacks? Flashforwards? Guess we'll just have to see what Lynch is going to do to »

'Larry David Lynch' is the Tumblr blog you need today

13 January 2015 3:52 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we reported here yesterday, the dreamy Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is coming back to television for Showtime's forthcoming "Twin Peaks" followup series. I am tongue-tying cherry stems in excitement! Can't stop thinking about it. So which other cast members will return? Putting it out there: if Mädchen Amick doesn't reprise the role of Shelly I will be sorely disappointed. But let's not think about that now. Instead let's take a spin through the strange, necessary world of "Larry David Lynch," a new Tumblr blog dedicated to marrying the macabre mundanity of David Lynch with the neurotic mundanity of Larry David. Yes, those are actual "Curb Your Enthusiasm" quotes. Samples below. Full blog here. Have a fun, frivolous time with this. »

Penny Dreadful's Bloody Season 2 Trailer Will Have You Seeing Red

13 January 2015 1:23 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Apparently, blood baths are in.

First, American Horror Story: Freak Show had Dandy take a dip in a tub full of gore. Now, in Penny Dreadful’s Season 2 trailer, Showtime’s monster mash has its new Big Bad, Madame Kali (Helen McCrory), enjoying a crimson soak, as well.

In addition, the teaser hints at an inevitable showdown between the villainess and our tortured heroine, Vanessa (Eva Green). “When Lucifer fell,” the latter intones, “he did not fall alone.” But the biggest shock in the preview is arguably the sight of Miss Ives in the arms of neither Dorian nor Ethan »
