That’s some damn good casting.
A Showtime rep declined to comment.
Sarsgaard is the latest Twin Peaks neophyte to board the limited-series continuation of the ’90s classic, joining Prison Break‘s Robert Knepper, Brothers & Sisters’ Balthazar Getty and Big Love‘s Amanda Seyfried. To date, the only piece of casting Showtime has officially confirmed is Kyle MacLachlan, who will reprise his role as Agent Dale Cooper.
Twin Peaks co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost have penned all episodes of the present-day revival — which will total more than the originally announced nine hours — with Lynch directing every installment. Filming is currently underway in Washington state.
Twin Peaks is slated to return in Summer 2017.
