Twin Peaks fans should expect a fair share of quirky new citizens when the series returns in 2017.
With production on the Twin Peaks revival series set for the fall, co-creator David Lynch is recruiting actors to play new characters in the Pacific Northwest town. According to a new TVLine report, Lynch is rumored to be employing an interesting strategy when it comes to casting these roles.
Lynch is apparently having actors audition by performing monologues "about themselves." The filmmaker is looking for unique, unknown actors to populate the town of Twin Peaks. After all, the town is both wonderful and strange.
So far, the only official cast member announced as returning is Kyle MacLachlan, who played Special Agent Dale Cooper in the original 1990-91 series.
Other cast members like Sherilyn Fenn (who played Audrey Horne), Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer/Maddie Ferguson) and Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs) had announced that they were returning as well, though Showtime has not confirmed this.
"I got a text from Sherilyn Fenn and she was like 'I talked to David [Lynch]; we're going back to Twin Peaks, we're gonna have some fun.' And I was like - I don't know what that meant. And then Sheryl told me when I got here that David said that we're both in," Ashbrook revealed at a Twin Peaks panel in January.
It remains to be seen if there will be new casting announcements in the months to come, though TVLine says that there will be several familiar faces in 2017.
