Eddie Vedder Joins the Cast of Showtime's Twin Peaks

It was announced today that Eddie Vedder will be appearing with several other musicians as a cast member in Showtime's Twin Peaks series, due out in 2017.  David Lynch apparently pulled in friends like Eddie and Trent Reznor for parts in the series.  The annoucement was made as a 200-name cast list posted on the series' Facebook page.

Rolling Stone dug through the list for you:
The asterisk next to names on the cast list denotes actors and actresses who either appeared on the original Twin Peaks series – like Kyle MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, M├Ądchen Amick, Ray Wise and David Duchovny, to mention a few – or its theatrical film Fire Walk With Me, like Harry Dean Stanton and Lynch himself. Even "Log Lady" actress Catherine Coulson, who died in September, is among the Twin Peaks returnees.

Also joining the cast is Michael Cera, Monica Bellucci, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jim Belushi, Tim Roth, Robert Forster, Ashley Judd, Amanda Seyfried and Lynch vets Laura Dern, Balthazar Getty and Naomi Watts.
