Laura Dern, Harry Dean Stanton, and Balthazar Getty are all long-standing members of the David Lynch repertory company. Dern’s collaboration with Lynch dates back to Blue Velvet; Stanton chased Dern in Wild at Heart and told her old showbiz stories in Inland Empire; Getty was the co-lead in Lost Highway, playing The Guy Bill Pullman Transforms Into. On Part 6 of Twin Peaks, all three actors stole the spotlight. Getty’s Red performed some magic tricks; Stanton’s Carl looked at trees, electric poles, and mortality; Dern made her Twin Peaks debut as a character near and dear to fans’ hearts. Meet Diane: Former secretary to Agent Dale Cooper, currently rocking platinum hair at Max Von’s Bar.
Local Twin Peaks scholar Jeff Jensen and I discuss all this and more in our latest podcast episode about Part 6 of the Twin Peaks revival season. We try to sort through what’s happening with Dougie, discuss in stunning detail what it means when a traffic light goes from yellow to red, ponder the One Armed Man, and try to decide what Hawk found in the bathroom stall.
