With the announcement of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” returning to television via Showtime in 2016, and cast members being slowly announced, fans of the legendary series are eager to see who might succeed Frank Silva as the character Killer BOB in the reboot.
The Party King himself, who happens to be a dead ringer for a young BOB, has said he personally identifies with the dark personality of the character, and threw his hat into the ring via the below tweet, should the role be revived.
It seems he’s not the only one who thinks it’s a no-brainer.
James Joiner of The Daily Beast writes:
“Described via Wikipedia as “a demonic entity from the Black Lodge, a realm of pure evil which exists on an alternate plane of reality” who “feeds on fear and pleasure,” BOB may as well be Andrew W.K.’s dark side come to life. That Twin Peaks can’t help but be the feeling-good-about-feeling-weird lowbrow smash hit of 2016 only makes it a more perfect gig for W.K., who can lend some pop culture star power credibility to the lineup…”
