Twin Peaks actors reunited in other movies/TV

Postby bosguy1981 » Tue Apr 19, 2011 6:29 pm

How many times have you spotted actors from the Twin Peaks universe who get "reunited" later in other movie/TV projects?

I was just watching an episode of "Law & Order: SVU" on Netflix (#3.9 "Care") which had Piper Laurie in the major guest starring role. Her adult daughter was portrayed by Kathleen Wilhoite (Lucy's sister on Twin Peaks). So what others can you think of? Here's a few off the top of my head...

Warren Frost and Grace Zabriskie played a married couple on Seinfeld.

Everett McGill and Wendy Robie played a married couple in The People Under the Stairs (1991).

David Duchovny worked with many other TP folks on various X-Files episodes, including Michael Horse (season 1 - "Shapes"), Mike Anderson (season 2 - "Humbug"), Frances Bay (season 2 - "Excelsius Dei"), Richard Beymer (season 4, "Sanguinarium"), and Robin Lively (season 6, "Field Trip"). Don Davis played Agent Scully's father, Captain William Scully, although he never actually had any scenes with Duchovny. And if we're really, really reaching, Willie Garson (who played the weepy guy at the start of episode 27 also appeared in two X-Files episodes).

Most of my examples are actors who never actually acted together when they were on Twin Peaks, but they do have that shared history. Any other examples?

Okay, and I thought of another X-Files one... David Duchovny had a scene with the actress who plays Sylvia Horne in the season 1 episode "Tooms."

Well, Audrey and Leland have quite a few love scenes and fights in The Elizabeth Taylor Story.

Wise plays Mike Todd, her third husband and hollywood mogul who dies in a plane crash. He's in it for about half an hour.
God, I love this music. Isn't it too dreamy?

They never appeared on TP at the same time, but Ray Wise and Robyn Lively both starred together in the mid-'90s Aaron Spelling primetime soap Savannah.

Dana Ashbrook and Peggy Lipton were reunited on Starz short-lived Crash series a couple years ago.

Last winter, shortly after having the pleasure of discovering both Michael Parks and Kenneth Welsh hamming it up under the same flick (Death Wish 5, a classic !), I decided to use some free time at work in order to build a spreadsheet based on IMDB data. This spreadsheet basically lists movies having at least two Twin Peak actors (from the series and/or TPFWWM) appearing under the same strip of celluloid. Sorry, but TV series were excluded due to lack of time. All that remains of my efforts is this PDF file.

Enjoy !

Wow. Impressive compilation. Nice job.

Here's one more. 1994's "Against the Wall" (HBO) with Kyle MacLachlan, Harry Dean Stanton and Clarence Williams III. It was a dramatization of the Attica State prison riots in 1971.
