A mysterious casting call hints at more ‘Twin Peaks’

With the popularity of Netflix’s instant stream option rising in the past few years, a resurgence in popularity of dusty old titles like “Trailer Park Boys,” “Cheers,” and “The West Wing” has accompanied it. Perhaps the greatest cult rebirth, however, has gone to “Twin Peaks,” the David Lynch-created murder mystery that only lasted two seasons. Maybe it’s the unique writing, the strange scenery, or the hip clothing, but a new generation of watchers has shared a fascination with the show’s strange and timeless nature almost 25 years later. And it could be possible that we may be in for more.

Projectcasting.com reported about an open casting call that was posted over the weekend on Twitter and Facebook by Sande Alessi Casting:

“TWIN PEAKS PROMO. Directed by David Lynch. Shoots in Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 7, 2014. Prob a 6 hour or less day. Rate is 150/8. You must live in LA to submit. I don’t think SAG has jurisdiction on this, so SAG and NON can submit. I have called SAG to double check this and I am awaiting a call back to confirm this though.

HOT Caucasian girl – BRUNETTE OR REDHEADS ONLY to play waitress. Age 18-27. MUST have an amazing body. Busty, very period looking face. Please submit two current color photos (one body shot, one face shot), your sizes, union status and contact info to: SandeAlessiCasting@gmail.com. Subject line should read: TP Promo”

This could be meaningless. It could simply be a promo for the upcoming Blu-ray release of “Twin Peaks,” which many believe will be on March 25, 2014, the exact date Laura Palmer’s Black Lodge character tells Agent Cooper they will meet again. Or it could mean something much bigger. Co-creator Mark Frost doesn’t seem to think so, tweeting the Project Casting link, along with the brief statement, “Another strange baseless rumor.”

But how awesome would it be if we got more “Twin Peaks”? More importantly, who would play each character? Fred Armisen kind of looks like Bob, to be honest. Now that would be awesome.
