The return to Twin Peaks just got a little less mysterious. Showtime has announced the full cast list for the show's planned revival, and it's not exactly short. There are 217 names listed, some who are returning from the show's original run and others who will be new to the world of Twin Peaks
Among the most notable new names are Amanda Seyfried, Michael Cera, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and even Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder. David Lynch, who created Twin Peaks and is working on the revival in partnership with executive producer Mark Frost, is also credited with an onscreen appearance.
Several returning faces include Piper Laurie, Lara Flynn Boyle, and Michael Ontkean. Kyle MacLachlan, who played FBI Agent Dale Cooper, is also set to return. These familiar faces will be surrounded by new ones, many of whom are names in their own right.
