“Twin Peaks” star Kyle McLachlan is set to appear in at least one episode of season two of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. He joins a list of new guest and recurring stars that includes Simon Kassianides, Reed Diamond, and Lucy Lawless.
There have been some conflicting reports about McLachlan’s role on the show, but TV Line is saying that he’ll play (spoiler) Skye’s long-lost father. This could explain so much. We still don’t know the specifics, but we’ve been told that Skye has some kind of horrifying and powerful ability. Maybe that’s because her father was possessed by a homicidal demon named BOB at the time of her conception. The timing even works out: Skye’s actress, Chloe Bennet, was born ten months almost to the day after the series finale of “Twin Peaks.”
Anyway, even if you don’t buy into the indisputable theory that Skye’s father was a possessed Dale Cooper, it’s pretty exciting to see McLachlan on this (or any) show. Since “Twin Peaks,” he’s also had regular and recurring roles on “Desperate Housewives,” “How I Met Your Mother, “Portlandia,” and “Believe.”
McLachlan is repped by Gersh and Management 360.
