“I haven’t done the acting thing in a while,” his pseudobiographical character says, and that’s literally what Harry Goaz’s IMDB page tells us. But the same year he returned to the set of Twin Peaks as Deputy Andy Brennan, the actor starred in a short film about a recluse painter “living on the fumes of a dwindling family trust.”

In fact, FD Magazine’s short was released amidst signs of complications and only days before David Lynch briefly abandoned the project in April 2015. But all’s well that ends well, at least for us. Will it for “Harry” in this story?
