Twin Peaks revival adds Naomi Watts, Tom Sizemore to cast

By now, you’ve probably heard about David Lynch’s upcoming Twin Peaks revival. The project recently made news when Showtime released a trailer for the resurrected cult-hit, and yesterday, we got some major casting news.

Both Naomi Watts (The Impossible) and Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan) have joined the cast, according to Deadline, though their exact roles are still under wraps. Watts, in particular, had been a target for producers for quite some time and the actress was first contacted back in October.

A continuation of the hit series that aired from April 1990 to June 1991, the new Twin Peaks was scripted by series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost and is scheduled for an 18-episode arc. Lynch and Frost originally wrote the revival as a longer, continuous movie, but it was later divided into individual episodes.

Once scheduled for a 2016 release, the project was pushed back late last year and was given an unspecified 2017 release. When it does debut, it will air on Showtime and its accompanying streaming platforms.

While this series is taking a somewhat circuitous route to the small screen, these latest additions should help to bolster what’s already looking like a fairly strong cast. Watts and Sizemore will join newbies like Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables) and Balthazar Getty (The Judge), along with recurring characters such as Kyle MacLachlan (Special Agent Dale Cooper), and Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer and Maddy Ferguson).

Lynch will direct the series and is also rumored to be reprising his role from the original Twin Peaks: FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole.

With the return of Lynch, Frost, and several key characters, the titular town should feel fairly familiar — but there’s still a long road between fans and a return to Twin Peaks.

Be sure to stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks and months.
