HOLLYWOOD – Following on from the startling news that Showtime are to revive Twin Peaks in 2016, comes the weirdest news still: Miley Cyrus is set to feature in the new show as everyone’s favorite worst denim-clad nightmare Bob.
The Studio Exec can reveal EXCLUSIVELY that in an attempt to boost the show’s audience among the youth cohort, David Lynch and Mark Frost have opted for some radical casting decisions.
David Lynch spoke with the Studio Exec in the early hours of this morning, with the sound of a squalling baby and a rusty radio playing dance hits from the 1930s in the background:
Bob is an essential figure for Twin Peaks. In many ways he is the alter ego of Agent Cooper and so it was important that just as Cooper is due to return in the form of his son, so Bob – it is revealed – had a daughter: Bobette. We were thinking of going with a frightening actor like Michael Shannon, but when I saw Ms. Cyrus’ performance at the VMAs a year or so back, it was clear not so much that I had found my new Bob, as that new Bob had found me. I don’t think I’ve had a proper night’s sleep since. SHUT THAT GODDAMNED BABY UP!
The sound of David Lynch’s voice was replaced by a percussive industrial grinding.
