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!

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
