“Twin Peaks” Reboot Cast List Includes Everyone in the World Including the Log Lady (And She’s Dead)



David Lynch says these are all the people who are in the reboot of “Twin Peaks.”

Some actors from the original show are missing, and it doesn’t matter if their characters were dead or alive since Sheryl Lee, who played the very dead Laura Palmer, is back.

Missing are Michael Ontkean, Piper Laurie, and Joan Chen. Piper Laurie told me backĀ  in February that she’d never been contacted. Ontkean is in a self-imposed retirement in Hawaii. (He made a weird cameo in “The Descendants.”) Age can’t be an issue with Laurie because Warren Frost is on the list, and he’s 90. (He’s also the father of producer Mark Frost.)

Also, if this list is correct, being dead in real life doesn’t matter since Catherine Coulson, who played the Log Lady, passed away last September.
