Showtime has announced the full cast for its 2017 Twin Peaks revival and it’s one of the most bonkers talent rosters ever assembled. The Season 3 cast was unveiled by Showtime concurrent with the announcement that the Twin Peaks revival has completed principal photography.

There are many surprising names on the list, including Ashley Judd, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Matthew Lillard, Tim Roth, Amanda Seyfried, Tom Sizemore, Harry Dean Stanton, Monica Belluci, Michael Cera, Laura Dern, Robert Forster and Meg Foster. Musicians Trent Reznor and Eddie Vedder will also appear.

While it’s anyone’s guess what all of these actors will be up to in Twin Peaks, the addition of 6’5” Derek Mears, known for playing Jason Voorhees and Predator, suggests Twin Peaks Season 3 will have its own cosmic, alien oddballs to add to the Black Lodge and White Lodge pantheon.

In total, over 200 actors will join Naomi Watts (whose casting was announced previously) and returning Twin Peaks cast members like David Patrick Kelly, Kyle MacLachlan, Ray Wise, Grace Zabriskie, David Duchovny, Russ Tamblyn, Sheryl Lee and Miguel Ferrer.
