    Every series Ashley Judd toplines either gets canceled (“Missing”) or isn’t optioned (“Salvation”). Every movie she toplines tanks at the box office. The only way she can continue working as an actress is to be part of an ensemble cast where she can’t do too much damage. Luckily she won’t make a difference in “Twin Peaks” – she was like the 30th person signed so she’ll probably play a waitress in one episode or something.

    I’ve never heard anyone say Ashley Judd was so talented that only she could carry a certain role. I doubt that she’ll make a difference. Her outlandish public speeches are really bizarre. She would have been entertaining in a senate race!

    Fantastic & very underrated actress! Looking forward to ‘Twin Peaks’.

  4. Bill says:

    Judd killed Missing in less than one season. It shouldn’t take her long to kill Twin Peaks.
