Michael Ontkean is thrilled. It’s not ‘the’ jacket, but it’s the best he’s seen in months of looking. Discovered just a day after Mike turned 69 on January 24, he let us know it’s ‘the best birthday present‘ he could ask for. Thanks to all the fans who participated in the search!

        • Maybe it’s not for “every” episode. As it says he originally wore it in “select episodes before.

          I hope it’s for Twin Peaks 2016 – it wouldn’t be the same without Cooper and the Sheriff!

          To those who question why the same jacket twenty-five years later – I say it’s all about the mojo! : )

          Anyway, I shared via Google+ – so, I’ve done my work to get the word out.

          • Yeah, that’s a very good point – he won’t necessarily be wearing the jacket the whole time he’s on screen!

            As others suggest, though, maybe it serves a more mysterious purpose. Perhaps Truman has disappeared and they find his jacket in the woods…? 🙂

        • Ah – he could have disappeared…very good call!

          I’m just praying they find the jacket, because he seems like such a good guy and he must really need it to offer up the reward.

          • Well, it’s been said that Season 3 (had the show continued at the time) would have seen Harry rescue Cooper from the Black Lodge… maybe Lynch and Frost have kept some of that idea, and Truman ventured in there at some point during the last 25 years, never to return?

            Would certainly be one explanation for why they need the exact same jacket…

            Ah, idle speculation – gotta love it!

  1. If this was for filming, he wouldn’t be asking the fans for the jacket, Lynch’s production crew would be the ones searching for it, or more likely making it from scratch. The fact that he wants it indicates it’s for something independent, perhaps making a video for Lynch to prove he can still do it.

  2. So he can ask for this jacket earlier this year then bail on the whole new project? Well slap us in the face. I guess Hawaii is too far from Washington. If it’s a personal reason fine but he wouldn’t give a reason.
