'Twin Peaks' returns? David Lynch seeks waitress for promo

If you live in Los Angeles and like cherry pie, hot coffee, and dancing in a creepy red room, director David Lynch is looking for the perfect actress to play a waitress in his upcoming "Twin Peaks" promo.

Do you think you have what it takes to serve a damn good cup of coffee and a slice of cherry pie in a universe where owls are not what they seem and customers range from a quirky FBI agent to a woman who talks to a log?

Then you might want to audition for director David Lynch who is on the lookout for a brunette or red-headed waitress for a "Twin Peaks" promo.

According to ProjectCasting.com, this open call for an upcoming promo for "Twin Peaks" was posted by Sande Alessi Casting:

TWIN PEAKS PROMO. Directed by David Lynch. Shoots in Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 7, 2014. Prob a 6 hour or less day. Rate is 150/8. You must live in LA to submit. I don't think SAG has jurisdiction on this, so SAG and NON can submit. I have called SAG to double check this and I am awaiting a call back to confirm this though.

HOT Caucasian girl - BRUNETTE OR REDHEADS ONLY to play waitress. Age 18-27. MUST have an amazing body. Busty, very period looking face. Please submit two current color photos (one body shot, one face shot), your sizes, union status and contact info to: SandeAlessiCasting@gmail.com. Subject line should read: TP Promo

"Twin Peaks " was a hit show during the early 1990s that lasted only two seasons, but forever cemented itself as one of the strangest murder mysteries to ever air. An eccentric FBI special agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) investigated an unusual murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) while crossing paths with the town's weird array of citizens including Log Lady, Deputy Hawk, Leland Palmer, Josie Packard, Nadine Hurley, the Giant, the dancing dwarf, and an evil spirit called BOB.

This promo is most likely in connection to the upcoming Blu-ray release of "Twin Peaks." Some fans speculate the release date will be March 25, 2014, which is exactly the date Laura Palmer's Black Lodge character tells Dale Cooper they will meet again (in 25 years).

However, just like a real "Twin Peaks" mystery, the casting call was tweeted and posted on Facebook by Sande Alessi Casting on January 2 and then deleted in less than 12 hours.

No word for sure if more characters in addition to the waitress role will be needed for the "Twin Peaks" open call audition on January 7, especially since Lynch hasn't tweeted, posted on his Facebook page, or blogged about the promo.

Perhaps the Log Lady knows for sure.
