It looks like one key actor from the original "Twin Peaks" series will not be returning for the follow-up in Showtime.
TV Line reports that Michael Ontkean has opted not to reprise his beloved role of Sheriff Harry S. Truman in the limited-run revival. A source close to the actor says: "Michael is fully retired from show business, and has been for many years."
On top of that, the site also says that veteran actor Robert Forster has stepped in to replace Ontkean as the town's sheriff, though it's unclear if he'll play Truman or a new character. Rumor was Lynch originally eyed Forster for the role of Sheriff Truman during the show's inaugral run.
Forester joins other newcomers to the franchise with Peter Sarsgaard, Robert Knepper, Balthazar Getty and Amanda Seyfried also expected to join the project which will sport over a dozen episodes all helmed by Lynch himself. »

Everyone knows the story of Peter Pan, but how exactly did the boy who refused to become a man end up in Neverland in the first place? Pan, in theaters today, answers that very question. In the Warner Bros. Pictures movie (rated PG), director Joe Wright introduces audiences to 12-year-old orphan Peter (Levi Miller), who is determined to find his mother Mary (Amanda Seyfried) in the mysterious land. He befriends James Hook (Garrett Hedlund) and Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara), and together, they must save Neverland from the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). Along the way, Peter must fulfill his destiny to become the hero forever known as Peter Pan. Pan also stars Adeel Akhtar as Mr. Smee, Jack Charles as Chief Great »

Audiences might expect the Peter Pan prequel Pan to be a big screen adaptation of humorist Dave Barry’s and writer Ridley Pearson’s bestselling “Peter and the Starcatchers,” a funny, clever, imaginative prequel to J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic “Peter Pan,” or perhaps an adaption of the smart, funny, creative Broadway musical they wrote, “Peter and the Starcatcher,” a Tony Award-winning production that delighted grown-ups as well as kids.
Sadly, Pan is neither.
Pan is a kind of prequel to Peter Pan, but the cleverness, charm and humor of “Peter and the Starcatcher” are entirely missing in this disappointing big-budget extravaganza. Instead, “Pan” features a line-up of Hollywood stars, lavish costumes and sets with dazzling visual effects but a script cobbled together from tired, overly familiar kid’s adventure movie tropes, a movie that brings to mind 2013’s “The Lone Ranger.” It seems like the filmmakers »

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.
Matt Damon‘s “The Martian” looks like it won’t lose fuel this weekend after the Twentieth Century Fox epic’s stellar opening last weekend, when it grossed $54.3 million. In fact, it’s set to beat newcomer “Pan,” which is projected to gross in the low $20 million range. “The Martian” is looking to add another $32 million to $34 million to its already whopping take, enough to easily win its second consecutive weekend in a row. “Pan,” starring Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund, Amanda Seyfried and Cara Delevingne, had a production budget of $150 million and is opening in 3,515 locations this Friday. »

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.
Showtime has started »
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 »
The Martian fell just shy of breaking Gravity's box office record for highest October opening of $55.7 million, by taking in $55 million in its first weekend. That record will likely be in no danger of falling this weekend either, with only one new movie arriving in wide release, Warner Bros.' Pan, and TriStar's The Walk expanding. With Pan's less than stellar critical reception so far, the projections at BoxOffice.com indicate that Pan likely won't have a shot at the top spot, with The Martian set to win for a second time in a row.
The Martian opened in 3,750 theaters, a count that isn't expected to change too much going into its second weekend at the box office. Ridley Scott's sci-fi drama following the quest to save an astronaut stranded on Mars has been called the best movie of the year by a number of critics. We still »
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 »
Oh high school. It was a rough time for a lot of us. Maybe more memorable for some. While we’re passed those adolescent days now, we’re deep in Back to School days and getting more than a little nostalgic. That’s due in part to all the high school teen movies that still rattle around in our pop culture consciousness. Many of the characters in the movies shared the same embarrassments we did, the same first crushes, the same droning teachers, and we all wish we had a friend like Ferris Bueller.
So we asked the PopOptiq staff, which high school character from the movies were you? Share your own pop culture doppelgänger below!
Randy Meeks and I have much in common. We are both massive horror movie fans who worked in a video store, studied film and had a hopeless crush on our best friend. »
Happy Mean Girls Day!
October 3 has become a day of celebration for fans of the classic high school movie, in homage to the moment when Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) asks Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) what day it is, and she she answers: "It's October 3rd."
Lohan honoured the movie by posting an image from that scene on her Instagram.

Meanwhile, Bennett suggested on Twitter that his "phone was blowing up" because of Mean Girls Day.

There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his rightful place in this magical land.
