Twin Peaks was a short-lived series about small town with a big mystery, and from 1990 to 1991, we learned just how big that mystery was. But recently, we've learned something else: The much-anticipated Twin Peaks revival has cast actors Naomi Watts and Tom Sizemore.
Sizemore has been a working actor since 1989, but Watts is a heavy hitter who has starred in such critically acclaimed films as Birdman, Eastern Promises and 21 Grams. However, the movie that put her on the map of the stars was Mulholland Drive, directed by Twin Peaks creator David Lynch.
According to The Nerdist, Watts and Sizemore will be joining former Twin Peaks cast members Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee, Dana Ashbrook and Kimmy Robertson, as well as Lynch newcomers Amanda Seyfried and Balthazar Getty.
Twin Peaks began with Agent Dale Cooper investigating the death of the local prom queen. It ended with Dale confronting evil in the Black Lodge—and ultimately succumbing to it. According to Wikipedia, had Twin Peaks received a third season, Mayor Briggs would have rescued Dale.
Twin Peaks will be getting an 18-episode season and will air on Showtime sometime in 2017.
