Showtime‘s continuation of the Twin Peaks franchise is a riddle wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Still, news and rumors continue to swirl around the limited series production. The latest gossip is that Jennifer Jason Leigh has signed on for the premium cable revival.
David Lynch’s Twin Peaks first premiered on ABC in 1990 and ran for 30 episodes, over the course of two seasons, before being cancelled. It was revived as a 1992 feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. Original cast members include Kyle MacLachlan, Michael Ontkean, Madchen Amick, Dana Ashbrook, Richard Beymer, Lara Flynn Boyle, and Sherilyn Fenn. MacLachlan is set to appear in the Showtime revival. Scroll down for more on Leigh and other casting rumors.
[…] Leigh’s casting was unofficially confirmed when paparazzi photos from a night shoot in the Mojave desert earlier this week included a grainy shot of what looked like Leigh filming a scene with star Kyle MacLachlan. Original co-star Sheryl Lee, who plays Laura Palmer, also was snapped.
