David Bowie’s Quick, Hectic, Cryptic and Surreal Appearance on Twin Peaks

Since the release of the new David Bowie album, The Next Day, and a recent perusal of the rare and collectible used Bowie records on our wall at Streetlight Records, I started thinking about his illustrious career.

Bowie has accomplished quite a lot in many different artistic fields, including movie and TV roles. One unique character he played was FBI agent Phillip Jeffries, in the David Lynch movie, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. In this brief cameo appearance, Bowie’s character reappears two years after having gone missing. The scene is quick, hectic, cryptic, surreal, and, well…VERY David Lynch!

Being the eccentric artist that David Bowie is, it’s only fitting that David Lynch would cast him in one of his movies. And, even more so that his character seems to defy the laws of physics and vanish just as suddenly as he appears in the first place. It may be a brief appearance, but David Bowie’s role in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me could not have been played by anybody else but Mr. Ziggy Stardust himself.
