FULFILLING A FANTASY Former 'Twin Peaks' star has lead role in spy thriller By BOB THOMAS The Associated Press L OS ANGELES — Kyle MacLachlan, the FBI investigator with a ,-• passion for coffee and cherry pie in the quirky television series "Twin: Peaks," turns to action in a spy thriller, "Jack Higgins' Thunder Point." The story of a modern-day plan to return Germany to Nazi control debuts.on cable May 30, on the The Movie Channel. It is the second of three self-con- „" . tained films about Sean Dillon, an Irish terrorist turned British spy. The third film is scheduled for June 7. The movie is based on a book by Jack Higgins, British author of such best sellers as "The Eagle Has Landed" and "Night of the Fox." An odd aspect of the TV trilogy is that Rob Lowe played Dillon in the first chapter of "Thunder Point," shown Ma"jr 16. MacLachlan stepped in when Lowe was unable to continue the series due to a scheduling conflict, a Movie Channel spokeswoman said. "I was happy, to do the roleJjecause it allows me to fulfill my James Bond fantasy," MacLachlan said from his home in New York. Dillon is released from prison to help find the Windsor Protocol, a blueprint for creating the Fourth Reich, entrusted by Hitler to his henchman, Martin Bormann. The Windsor Protocol is a secret World War II agreement struck by Hitler and the Duke of Windsor, who was King Edward VIII until his abdication in 1938. It lists secret bank accounts intended to help fund the Nazi regime. A Canadian flavor Like many TV movies, this one was filmed in Canada, mostly in and around Montreal. Most of the actors, apart from MacLachlan, are unfamiliar to audiences south of the border. "I was the only one from the U.S.," MacLachlan said. "Canadians have their own film community and culture that is very strong. There are a number of wonderful, talented people who are not necessarily known elsewhere. They are film stars in their own right, though not necessarily international." MacLachlan, of Yakima, Wash., acted at the University of Washington and in two regional theaters before David Lynch picked him to star in "Dune," based on Frank Herbert's futuristic tales, and "Blue Velvet," a weird, cultish movie that drew both acclaim and outrage. . Then came Lynch's "Twin Peaks" in 1990-91, with MacLachlan as FBI Agent Dale Cooper, who arrives in a Pacific Northwest town to investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer and develops a fondness for the community's "damn fine coffee" and cherry pie. The show made a splash with its mind-bending plot twists and eerie quality but failed to attract enough viewers to survive on the air. "I'm still getting jobs and interest based on that character," MacLachlan says. "Not to mention the fans." MacLachlan may become a TV regular again. He has completed a pilot for "The Invisible Man," in the role created by Claude Rains in the 1933 classic .movie. . .., --....
