“I was in Blue Velvet and got cut out,” Megan Mullally wrote in the caption alongside an Instagram photo of her deep kissing Kyle MacLachlan in David Lynch’s 1986 feature film. The actress best known for her role as Karen Walker in Will & Grace then continues to confess she has “zero memory” of playing one of Jeffrey Beaumont’s three girlfriends, Louise Wertham, “even though I’d never kissed anyone on camera before and Kyle McLaughlin [sic] was cute.”
This scene covers just one minute out of 53 minutes of deleted scenes from Blue Velvet, previously included on the 25th anniversary Blu-ray (Amazon) but now part of the many special features on the David Lynch-supervised Criterion release (Amazon) out on Blu-ray and DVD on May 28, 2019.
In a comment on her Instagram post, Kyle responded “We’ll always have Lumberton” as a reference to Humphrey Bogart’s famous line from Casablanca, replacing Paris with the name of the logging town where Blue Velvet’s story takes place.
The actress also shared a link to her deleted scene which, as she wrote, “needs to be seen on many levels.”
