Twin Peaks Revival: Brothers & Sisters Vet Cast In Top-Secret Role

Diane: It’s early Sunday morning and some fresh Twin Peaks intel just fell into my lap.

Brothers & Sisters vet Balthazar Getty has joined the cast of Showtime’s forthcoming continuation of the ’90s classic, sources confirm to me exclusively.

It’s not clear if Getty is playing a new character or taking over an existing one (rumors abound that at least one major role from the original series has been recast).

A Showtime rep declined to comment.

News of Getty’s casting comes just days after we reported that Big Love‘s Amanda Seyfried landed a major role in the anticipated revival.

Twin Peaks co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost have penned all episodes of the present-day continuation — which will total more than the originally announced nine hours — with Lynch directing every installment. Filming is currently underway in Washington state.

At the Television Critics Association summer press tour in August, Showtime president David Nevins hinted that fans can expect “familiar faces” to join returning cast member Kyle MacLachlan. “You should be optimistic that the people that you want [back] will be there, and then there will be some surprises in addition.”

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    barely recognized them as a blond.

  2. They’ve gone and recast Donna Hayward again…

  3. Matt says:

    It is worth mentioning he worked with Lynch in Lost Highway

  4. Sam says:

    What the hell happened to him. That’s NOT the look. He’s attractive and most certainly needs to stop fighting the hotness. That said; i’m looking forward to seeing this.

  5. Temperance says:

    Considering his vast wealth, you the guy could get someone to get rid of his wildly distracting unibrow…

    • c-mo says:

      That’s what you noticed and not his creepy-looking blonde hair? Please let the blonde be for another role so he will look more like himself…well minus the uninbrow, for Temperance.

      • Temperance says:

        Color can be changed in a couple hours. But he works in the Land of Plastic and no one hasn’t lasered of the unbrow from hell? For free even? And waxing takes less than one minute. Considering care to eliminate the unibrow is teener basic hygene…

    Balthazar Getty looks pretty good. I remember him with dark hair. He now sports blond hair with dark facial hair.

  7. Beckers0505 says:

    He has changed. Can’t decide it its for the better or not…

  8. He kind of looks like The Giant. Maybe some connection or recast.

  9. lulu says:

    Iam not surprised, he played in the awesome masterpiece Lost Highway..so David rehired him..good for him !

  10. liame says:

    I hope the bleached hair isn’t included….yikes*****

  11. Mark Donahue says:

    The one major recast is most likely to be Donna sadly.
