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.

What do you think about Getty joining the cast of Twin Peaks?  Did you like his previous work on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters as Tommy Walker? Comment below!

I really enjoyed “Brothers and Sisters.” It’s a shame it was cancelled prematurely. None of the shows later placed in that time slot has achieved better ratings than “Brothers and Sisters.”

I hope this version of Twin Peaks maintains a narrative structure, that you can follow along with, and doesn’t just devolve into a jumble of incoherent images, dark vs. light, good vs. evil, red vs. black, etc. That kind of atmospheric eerieness can be bracing and thought-provoking, but not at the expense of a linear story that follows a path from A to B. The first season was so popular because it was different, it had a Whodunit mystery, and viewers got sucked into the various storylines. The second season was like they forgot to hire writers, and just had directors, moving the cast around in bizarre poses and placements. They have had plenty of time to write these scripts, and make them something worth watching, and they have the potential to have a real success on their hands. It really is all about the characters and story though. You need both! Could this dude be playing Bobby Briggs? Very unfortunately, the actor who played him in the first go-round has NOT aged well. I am not one to comment on someone’s appearance, but I was shocked to see pictures of him. His real name was Dana Ashbrook, and he looks like an old gray haired man. Whatever happened in his life, I am sorry for, and I feel for him. I guess I am used to actors in daytime who don’t change barely a hair in 30 years!

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.
