'Twin Peaks,' David Lynch's cult classic serial drama about the quirky, cherry pie-and-coffee-lovin' FBI agent Dale Cooper and the mysteries he investigates among the equally quirky denizens of fictional Twin Peaks, Washington, debuted 20 years ago today. And because its impact on pop culture endures -- as do airings of the series on A&E's Crime and Investigation Network, as well as NBC Universal's Chiller -- it's the perfect time to catch up with what the Lynchian stars have been up to in the past two decades.
Special Agent Dale Cooper
MacLachlan, a frequent David Lynch film star before settling down in 'Twin Peaks,' has continued to play roles that capitalize on his handsome figure and offbeat on-screen presence. After co-starring in the notoriously cheesy 'Showgirls,' MacLachlan starred in another fan-fave TV show, playing Charlotte's mama's boy hubby Trey on 'Sex and the City.' He also voiced media mogul Donald Love in the videogame 'Grand Theft Auto III,' played a father who murdered his own child on an episode of 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' and, since 2006, has played the sometimes creepy, sometimes endearing Orson Hodge on 'Desperate Housewives.' New York City resident MacLachlan, who is a frequent guest host on 'Live With Regis & Kelly,' became a first-time father at age 49 when son Callum was born in 2008. The star, who was once engaged to supermodel Linda Evangelista, also co-owns the Pursued by Bear winery, and he and wife Desiree publish a Web site and series of YouTube videos dedicated to their dogs, Mookie and Sam.
