What the hell is Amanda Seyfried doing in ‘Twin Peaks’?

Amanda Seyfried is starring on the new “Twin Peaks.” I repeat: Amanda Seyfried is starring on the new “Twin Peaks.” 

The “Ted 2” star has landed an unspecified role in Showtime's forthcoming revival, according to TVLine. Seyfried will appear in multiple episodes, and the character is announced as “pivotal” and “new.” I love information! (Could she perhaps be a waitress at the Double R Diner, in and around which the series has been filming in Snoqualmie, Washington?)

Seyfried's casting is somewhat unusual in the history of “Twin Peaks,” as she's arguably the biggest movie star to take a role on the series.
