Nothing is ever as it seems in "Twin Peaks," and that goes for the casting of the show's new revival on Showtime as well.
Kyle MacLachlan -- who portrays FBI Agent Dale Cooper -- is the only member of the cast who has been officially announced by Showtime so far, but that doesn't stop unofficial cast announcements from hitting social media.
On Friday, Deadline revealed from "sources" that Ashley Judd of "Divergent" could be joining the "Twin Peaks" revival show, along with Naomi Watts, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Laura Dern, Amanda Seyfried, Balthazar Getty, Grant Goodeve, Larry Clarke, Robert Knepper, James Belushi, Tom Sizemore and Caleb Landry Jones.
While that rumored cast listing is tantalizing enough on its own, many fans, including myself, are hoping for more familiar faces to reprise their original "Twin Peaks" characters in the new show.
Actors rumored to be reprising their roles include Sheryl Lee, Madchen Amick, Michael Horse, Dana Ashbrook, Miguel Ferrer, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie, Peggy Lipton, Everett McGill, Wendy Robie, James Marshall, Kimmy Robertson, Harry Goaz and director David Lynch himself.
This makes sense, especially after seeing many of the original cast members stand by Lynch in a special video that supported the director having creative control over the revival when it appeared Showtime might be going in a different direction.
Good thing Lynch came back to the project.
While many of the characters these actors played in the original series died, we all know dying is subjective in "Twin Peaks," especially where the Black Lodge is concerned. After all, how else would Agent Cooper be able to converse with a backward-frontward-talking Laura Palmer look-alike in a dream state?
