Twin Peaks creator, David Lynch, has previously worked with Dern on Inland Empire, Wild at Heart, and Blue Velvet. Jennifer Jason Leigh, Miguel Ferrer, Sherilyn Fenn, Sheryl Lee, Robert Knepper, Balthazar Getty, and Amanda Seyfried are also rumored to be among the Twin Peaks revival cast.
From TV Line:
Details about Dern’s character are being kept under the tightest of wraps, but one tantalizing theory has the Oscar-nominated actress playing Agent Cooper’s never-before-seen secretary Diane. If true, that means Dern and Kyle MacLachlan would once again be paired as investigators, a super-cool nod to their roles in Lynch’s 1986 mystery noir Blue Velvet.
A Showtime rep declined to comment for this story.
