Shut Eye, Twin Peaks, and The Flash have made recent TV show casting news. Shut Eye will air on Hulu, Twin Peaks on Showtime, and The Flash airs on The CW.

Shut Eye (Hulu)

Jeffrey Donovan has been attached to one of Hulu’s upcoming projects. He will play the male lead on the streaming service’s in-house production, Shut Eye. The role will mark the second time the Burn Notice star has been featured as the lead in a television series. Deadline describes the role as follows:

Donovan will play Charlie Haverford, a failed magician who now works as a psychic/conman overseeing a number of fortune telling parlors in Los Angeles. Employed for many years by a Romani kingpin, Charlie’s life is stifled and going nowhere until a blow to the head jars him into a new mindset and makes him question everything he has ever believed. When his wife urges him to break out on his own, he’s careful – because he knows that one wrong move will land him in a shallow grave.

Twin Peaks (Showtime)

Fans of the David Lynch TV series Twin Peaks will be pleased to know that Sherilyn Fenn will reportedly reprise her role as Audrey Horne in Showtime’s revival of the television cult classic. If the reports are true, she is the only original cast member other than series lead Kyle MacLachlan set to reappear for sure in the new series.

Star Kyle MacLachlan is the only cast member confirmed for the new Twin Peaks season. Fenn is believed to be the highest-profile co-star from the ABC series to join him in the revival. (I hear fellow female co-star Lara Flynn Boyle has opted not to come back.) I had previously learned that Miguel Ferrer is reprising his role as FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield from the original series, that Sheryl Lee was David Patrick Kelly is said to be reprising his role as Jerry Horne, and Richard Beymer is rumored to be resurrecting his character of Jerry’s brother and Audrey’s father Ben.

Laura Dern is also joining the cast of Twin Peaks but her role is being kept under wraps.

The Flash (The CW)

Kevin Smith will be directing an episode of The Flash this season. There is no word yet on which episode he will direct.

Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
