Amanda Seyfried signs up for mystery role in new series of Twin Peaks
Amanda Seyfried, best known for her roles in Mamma Mia and Mean Girls, has signed up for a role in the new revival of Twin Peaks.
Seyfried, who will next be seen in Joe Wright's new lavish adaptation of Peter Pan, has reportedly agreed to take part in the new series in an as yet unnamed role.
According to TVLine, Seyfried will appear in multiple episodes of the show, which is currently filming in time for transmission next year.
Twin Peaks originally ran in 1989 and lasted for 30 episodes over two series before it was cancelled by network ABC. The show followed the travails of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, who is sent to the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington to investigate the murder of high school student, Laura Palmer.
The show had a large cast, which included the likes of Lara Flynn Boyle, Michael Ontkean, Danna Ashbrook, Richard Beymer, Heather Graham, Ray Wise and Joan Chen.
The new series has been written entirely by co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost with Lynch directing each of the episodes.
In the years since its cancellation the show has earned a huge cult following, with a number of special editions of the series released on DVD. The most recent Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery, was released earlier this year.
