Why David Lynch Rejected Nine Inch Nails' First 'Twin Peaks' Song Offering


Nine Inch Nails David Lynch Trent Reznor

It went without saying that Nine Inch Nails would make a live appearance at the Roadhouse on the new 'Twin Peaks' series, but it seems that creator David Lynch had a very specific idea on what kind of sound he wanted from them for the eighth episode.

Band members Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross recently opened up about their collaboration with David Lynch on 'Twin Peaks: The Return' - a project that they really didn't need much persuading to join. As it turns out, the song that they sung at the Roadhouse entitled 'She's Gone Away' was written especially for the show, and ended up also being included on the 'Not the Actual Events' EP.

The Music Of 'Twin Peaks The Return'


David Lynch Nine Inch Nails Eddie Vedder

So that's it for the reunion series of 'Twin Peaks', and the 18 episodes definitely seem to have gone by so quickly. Perhaps some of the most enjoyable moments in the whole series were the great many musical guests that appeared at the Road House (and elsewhere).

David Lynch has always taken music seriously in his filmmaking, so we wouldn't have expected anything other than an electrifying auditory experience and that's exactly what we got with these artists during 'Twin Peaks: The Return'. Needless to say, the cool jazz-infused flavour from the original series is somewhat lacking - but then you can't have everything...

David Lynch: The Art Life Trailer


Ever wondered where David Lynch gets his ideas for the weird nuances and surreal undertones of his movies? This new documentary explores how his childhood in Philadelphia informed his later work in film and on canvas, how there were plenty of people to take inspiration from on those dark streets. In 'David Lynch: The Art Life', he reflects on how his creative process has developed over the years and delves deep into his love of painting. He may be best known as a director; at the helm of 'The Elephant Man', 'Dune', 'Blue Velvet' and 'Twin Peaks' among others; but art has always been his number one passion in life.

Kyle MacLachlan David Lynch

As the premiere of the 'Twin Peaks' revival draws ever nearer, we are still none the wiser as to what the new plot involves. There are a smattering of new stars whose characters we don't yet know, but there are some returning roles including Kyle MacLachlan as Dale Cooper.

Kyle appeared on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' to talk about his return to the David Lynch TV show and to show off his Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure of Dale Cooper. While he couldn't actually say much about what's coming, he did insist that it would be completely different.

Forget Damn Good Coffee, Check Out David Lynch's Damn Good Donut In 'Twin Peaks' Trailer


David Lynch

It's probably the most uninformative trailer of the year, but a new teaser for the upcoming third season of 'Twin Peaks' has arrived just to remind us of its imminent approach. It features creator David Lynch, being very Lynch, which suggests he'll make a return cameo in the new series.

David LynchDavid Lynch shares his snack with us

To the famous theme tune of the series, David Lynch munches a damn good glazed donut with a look of pure concentration on his face in the new trailer for 'Twin Peaks'. It seems he will reprise his cameo role of FBI chief Gordon Cole. It's not unusual of David Lynch to share little of a story's plot in a trailer, but we're amazed at how mesmerizing it is to watch him eating sugary goods.

John Malkovich stars in the trailer for a new David Lynch inspired project: 'Psychogenic Fugue'. Hosted by Squarespace, it's a part of a new project called 'Playing Lynch', essentially a tribute to the 'Twin Peaks' director's work for the benefit of his charity the David Lynch Foundation.

The trailer features flashes of spooky black and white imagery inspired by 'Eraserhead', 'Twin Peaks', 'Blue Velvet', 'Lost Highway' and 'The Elephant Man', with John Malkovich taking on a variety of iconic Lynch characters including Special Agent Dale Cooper, The Log Lady, The Lady In The Radiator, Henry Spencer, Frank Booth, John Merrick and David Lynch himself. It also gives the definition of 'Psychogenic Fugue' as a 'dissociative disorder in which a person forgets who they are and leaves home to create a new life'.

Is there anyone left in Hollywood NOT starring in the 'Twin Peaks' revival?! The 200-strong cast of the upcoming David Lynch series has been announced in full, revealing not only the original actors set to return (so thats pretty much everyone), but a whole bunch of new faces who will appear - including a handful of musical stars.

David LynchDavid Lynch is directing a stellar cast for 'Twin Peaks'

The upcoming new show is a continuation of the events of the 90s drama's original two series. It's only due for a limited 18-episode run on Showtime next year, which probably explains why so many people have agreed to get on board. Literally everyone you can think of from the show is making an appearance; Kyle MacLachlan as Agent Dale Cooper, Sheryl Lee as Laura Palmer, Mädchen Amick as Shelly Johnson, Dana Ashbrook as Bobby Briggs, Richard Beymer as Benjamin Horne, Sherilyn Fenn as Audrey Horne, Ray Wise as Leland Palmer and many more.

After an unpredictable few months, fans of ‘Twin Peaks’ have received two more pieces of big-name casting for the revival of the cult ‘90s show over on Showtime next year, with Naomi Watts and Tom Sizemore added to the already impressive cast list.

On Tuesday (February 1st), Deadline reported that the revival has added the 47 year old English actress Watts to the burgeoning cast at the behest of director David Lynch. She has worked with the idiosyncratic director before, playing the dual identities of Bettie Elms and Diane Selwyn in his 2001 movie Mulholland Drive.
