Will David Duchovny reprise his gender-bending role in the upcoming revival of Twin Peaks?
A pre-X-Files Duchovny guest starred in the second season of Twin Peaks as Denise Bryson, a transgender DEA agent, way back in 1991. While Duchovny only appeared in three episodes, it's possible he'll be back for the revival season being planned for Showtime for 2017.
Duchovny spoke about the possibility at an X-Files panel at New York Comic-Con on Saturday.
"There is a chance I'll show up on Twin Peaks," he teased. "That's all I can say. I've been frightened into silence."
Of course, Duchovny would have to do some shaving if he were to reprise his role. The actor admitted wryly, "Yeah, I'll shave my legs" assuming he returns.
There has been a lot of secrecy in regard to what's going down in the Twin Peaks revival. The only returning actor officially announced by Showtime is Kyle MacLachlan, a.k.a. Special Agent Dale Cooper. Many favorites have been rumored to be returning though nothing further has been announced by Showtime or co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost.
The Twin Peaks revival was originally planned for 2016, though contract negotiations caused the project to be delayed several months. Now, the expected premiere date will be 2017, with a specific premiere date yet to be announced. Lynch and Frost are collaborating on all episodes of the revival, which is a relief to Twin Peaks fans who want to see the show's vision expressed through the co-creators themselves.
