27. Agent Phillip Jeffries

In a meeting of artsy icons named David, Lynch cast David Bowie as an FBI agent with a thick Southern drawl who suddenly materializes in the Bureau's Philadelphia HQ after going missing for years. The result: the best Thin White Duke cameo ever. Jeffries wreaks havoc on the office's security cameras, emphatically declares "I'm not gonna talk about Judy" (whoever that is), and describes a meeting of the demonic members of the Black Lodge before disappearing again. In one quick scene, Bowie gives us the saga's clearest, strangest look at the Lodge's inhabitants, and helped Lynch craft an unnerving haunted-surveillance-camera image that anticipated everything from The Ring to the Slender Man meme.
