Subject: Revised Cast
From: (Jon Conrad)

Having read requests from some readers for an updated cast list for TWIN
PEAKS, I am happy to oblige.
  This is mostly new characters.  Some that are one-shots so far (like
Jerry Horne) may not return, but you never know.  We have learned a
couple more names--Andy's surname, and the one-armed man's middle and
last (but not his first!--and of course it may be a false name).  But
still no last name for Mike, no first name for the Major.  Several minor
roles were recast after the pilot film (I assume some lapse of time, and
it wasn't worth rounding up all the original bit players); hence the
listing of two actors for some roles.  I have NO idea why Mrs. Pulaski
changed her first name!
