Kyle MacLachlan

After college, actor Kyle MacLachlan landed a part in a movie. It just so happened to be the lead in the David Lynch film Dune! Not bad for his very first role. While the film was not a commercial or critical success, it was the beginning of a long relationship with the film's director which included Kyle's most-iconic character to date: the role of Dale Cooper in the surreal crime drama Twin Peaks. The show's cult following has earned the actor the adoration of fans worldwide. Bullseye producer Kevin Ferguson chats with the actor about how fans still resonate with the character, his childhood and what it was like playing historical rival Thomas Edison to Ethan Hawke's Tesla in their latest film.
