Yesterday came word that Jennifer Jason Leigh has joined the cast of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” revival at Showtime, and today comes a report suggesting that Lynch is seeking his “Mulholland Drive” star Naomi Watts for the series.
Kyle MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, Dana Ashbrook, David Patrick Kelly, Richard Beymer, Sheryl Lee, Balthazar Getty, Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard and Robert Knepper are also said to be a part of the event series which is expect to run around a dozen (if not more) episodes.
Showtime hasn’t publicly acknowledged any of the casting beyond MacLachlan’s. Lynch is directing the entire new season and co-wrote the script with Mark Frost. A late 2016 air date is expected and would mark the 25th anniversary of the second season finale.
