When a loud, obnoxious person who constantly criticizes and demeans others wants to come to your party, typically you’d deny the request. But for “Twin Peaks” fans, it wouldn’t be a reunion without Miguel Ferrer.

The sharp-tongued 60-year-old “NCIS: Los Angeles” star has signed on to reprise his role as caustic FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield on the currently-filming “Twin Peaks” revival, according to Deadline. He is the latest in a long list of original actors (Kyle MacLachlan, Sherilyn Fenn) and new ones (Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Jason Leigh) to join the cast of the Showtime series.

Although he was only on the original show for eight episodes, Ferrer’s Rosenfield was a significant scene-stealer in the classic early-90s series. A talented forensic analyst with a terrible bedside manner, Rosenfield was a stark contrast to MacLachlan’s wide-eyed, eager-to-please Agent Dale Cooper.

Storming through the slow-paced, folksy Twin Peaks like a bull in a china shop, Rosenfield compared Andy to a dog, mocked Doc Hayward’s medical talents and rode Sheriff Truman so hard that Harry eventually punched him — much to Cooper’s delight. In a true “Twin Peaks” headscatcher, Rosenfield eventually revealed himself to be a pacifist, telling Sheriff Truman that he loved him.

Showtime has yet to confirm the casting news — in fact, the only returning actor Showtime will confirm is MacLachlan.
