More casting news this weekend for the revival of the 90′s cult primetime soap, Twin Peaks! According to TV Line, none other than former Brothers & Sisters star Balthazar Getty has joined the cast of the modern day version of the series set to air on Showtime.
Apparently, Getty’s role is hush-hush as production of the drama is currently underway in Washington State. It is unclear whether the actor will be playing a brand new role, or take over an existing role on the quirky series. No confirmation on Getty’s role has been made by the cable network.
As previously announced, Twin Peaks co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost have written all episodes of the updated version with Lynch directing every installment. Originally the series was slated to be nine episodes, but that has since changed and the order for the series is much larger. The revival hopes to launch sometime in 2016, or at latest 2017.
