Twin Peaks, the seminal 1990s murder mystery drama from creators David Lynch and Mark Frost, gave us many things. The show, which only ran for two seasons, brought a lush cinematic feel to episodic broadcast television while offering a surreal and often nightmarish look into the seedy underbelly of a seemingly idyllic small town. Its highly serialized and stylized format went on to influence countless other television shows and became a catchphrase for inexplicably odd circumstances. (Thank you, Cher Horowitz.)
The show also featured quite a few now-familiar faces among its cast of dozens, which helped to shape the sense that Twin Peaks was a weird and wonderful place inhabited by malevolent spirits and oddball townspeople. While the show's main cast boasted Kyle MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn, Ray Wise, Sheryl Lee, Peggy Lipton, Grace Zabriskie, and Lara Flynn Boyle (among many, many others), quite a few familiar actors dropped in for a damn fine cup of coffee during Twin Peaks' all-too-brief run.
