Even for new characters, there have been absolutely zero rumors, etc.

I'm guessing that
a) Lynch doesn't want this info out, and
b) even at this very late date, things may not be worked out with some of the returning actors.

I thought I start a thread where we could update the returning cast as we find out. So below I've listed pretty much anyone I could see returning- even mega long shots.


Official:
Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan)

A safe bet:
Shelly Johnson (Mädchen Amick) (based on Madchen's tweet of the uniform pic)
Nadine Hurley (Wendy Robie) (based on the leaked name of the shop)

Unknown:
Harry Truman (Michael Ontkean)
Laura Palmer/Maddy Ferguson (Sheryl Lee)
Sarah Palmer (Grace Zabriskie)
Leland Palmer (Ray Wise)
Donna Hayward (Lara Flynn Boyle)
Donna Hayward (Moira Kelly)
Bobby Briggs (Dana Ashbrook)
Audrey Horne (Sherilyn Fenn)
Benjamin Horne (Richard Beymer)
Jerry Horne (David Patrick Kelly)
James Hurley (James Marshall)
Big Ed Hurley (Everett McGill)
Norma Jennings (Peggy Lipton)
Hank Jennings (Chris Mulkey)
'Hawk' Hill (Michael Horse)
Lucy Moran (Kimmy Robertson)
Andy Brennan (Harry Goaz)
Dick Tremayne (Ian Buchanan)
Albert Rosenfield (Miguel Ferrer)
Dennis/Denise Bryson (David Duchovny)
Gordon Cole (David Lynch)
Catherine Martell (Piper Laurie)
Josie Packard (Joan Chen)
Leo Johnson (Eric DaRe)
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby (Russ Tamblyn)
Mike Nelson (Gary Hershberger)
The Log Lady (Catherine E. Coulson)
Windom Earle (Kenneth Welsh)
Man From Another Place (Michael J. Anderson)
The Giant (Carel Struycken)
Phillip Gerard (Al Strobel)
Ronette Pulaski (Phoebe Augustine)
Doc Will Hayward (Warren Frost)
Eileen Hayward (Mary Jo Deschanel)
Betty Briggs (Charlotte Stewart)
Johnny Horne (Robert Bauer)
Sylvia Horne (Jan D'Arcy)
Lana Budding Milford (Robyn Lively)
Annie Blackburn (Heather Graham)
John Justice Wheeler (Billy Zane)
Tim Pinkle (David L. Lander)
Heidi (Andrea Hays)
Gersten Hayward (Alicia Witt)
Toad (Kevin Young)
Phillip Jeffries (David Bowie)
Chester Desmond (Chris Isaak)
Sam Stanley (Kiefer Sutherland)
Carl Rod (Harry Dean Stanton)


I feel like we could add a category for "informally confirmed" and include, for example, Sheryl Lee, Dana Ashbrook, and Catherine Coulson since Lynch personally told them they would be in but nothing has been officially signed/announced through Showtime. There's always the possibility things could change but they seem a safer bet than, say, Kiefer Sutherland, even if not quite as safe a bet as Madchen Amick or Wendy Robie, given recent activity. (On the other hand, to play devil's advocate, what if the storefront is just a jokey background detail and we never actually see Nadine? I doubt it but in a way even this is an assumption on our parts.)

Oh, and we should probably spoiler/tag this thread title!

I was just thinking how I'd love to see Carl Rodd in there. Harry Dean Stanton is one of the most prestigious & beloved actors to appear in the saga, yet it seems people often forget to associate him with Twin Peaks maybe because he's only in the film (then again, that didn't seem to be a problem for Isaak, Sutherland, and Bowie, who often get brought up). In fact the idea of him reappearing didn't even occur to me until just now.

I know Stanton is very old now, nearly 90, and I'm not sure how his health is though I know he actively celebrated a birthday recently. It would be beautiful to see him continue his long collaboration with Lynch by make a brief appearance here. Then again I have a feeling we won't be seeing Deer Meadow at all in 2016/17. It may have served its purpose.

I'd say that maybe Carl moved to a new town, but we all know he just wanted to stay where he was.

I think by now we can say Everett McGuill is a safe bet as well. I know there's a lot of conjecture that James could be running the gas station now, but the fact that Lynch was looking for Everett before production started says otherwise to me :)

You of all people know who my favorite returning character would be Ross. Seems not likely, but we'll see :(

And let's hope they won't forget FWWM characters (Isaak, Sutherland and Bowie)

I'm hesitant to say anyone is a safe bet at this point, because we really don't know what real life circumstances are happening behind the scenes. Lynch may have told people they were going to be in the scripts way back when, and things still could have fallen through later on (Sherilyn??).

But hopefully we'll know a few more soon with filming starting.

Maybe we should use this thread as like a checklist? Once actors are spotted on set and the such.

Agreed. We can officially add Everett McGill and Wendy Robie, for one (er, two).

Yep! That's why I made the thread. I'm moving Wendy & Everett to the "Official" column!!

Even if Little Nicky doesn't make it back, a passing reference to "Mayor Needleman" along the way would be absolute money.

Riley Lynch was spotted. Maybe he'll be taking Pierre Tremond's role?

So far, Kyle, Everett, Wendy and Dana confirmed.
Madchen and Peggy are safe bets, since both gave hints online.
And Riley might be playing a new character or assuming Pierre's role.
