Interview with Gillian Anderson

While her most famous role involved chasing aliens and government conspiracies with David Duchovny on “The X-Files,” Gillian Anderson has kept busy over the years with other projects. Her latest casts her as the long-suffering wife of Captain Ahab as he obsessively tracks down the whale that maimed him in Encore’s re-imagining of “Moby Dick” in a 2-part mini series that premieres Aug 1. Anderson sat down with CableFAX’s Michael Grebb at TCA in L.A. to discuss the role, her X-Files legacy and of course how we can start a campaign to get her a guest spot on Showtime’s “Californication.”

CableFAX: First of all, what drew you to this role?   Anderson: William Hurt was already attached, and they were in discussions with Ethan Hawke. That fact alone intrigued me. I think if they had not been attached, I might not have read the script. Then there was the script itself. I had not read the novel before. I couldn’t relate it to anything, so I didn’t know if it was a good adaptation of the actual novel. But I liked the script. I liked the story. I felt like I understood the character. And I thought it might be fun to perform it.   CableFAX: It’s ... [Continua a leggere]

David Duchovny lives a new, calmer life after trying times

LOS ANGELES — David Duchovny says he's a changed man. "I'm filled with humility and gratitude," says the actor, who shot to fame on The X Files before being treated for sex addiction in 2008. "Before, I was focused on winning and deserving. I would say, 'Oh, I deserve that.' That's not grateful. Grateful is, 'Wow. I'm lucky. That's fantastic.' " Duchovny, who turns 50 in August, is sitting in a West Hollywood hotel suite discussing his new film, The Joneses (in theaters Friday). He plays Demi Moore's fake husband in this romantic comedy/biting satire about stealth marketing. As he d ... [Continua a leggere]

David Duchovny On Playing House With Demi Moore, More 'X-Files' -- And Toilets

In 'The Joneses,' David Duchovny plays Steve, a father and a husband living the good life in the suburbs. Everything in his life is perfect ... except for the fact that it's all a lie. Steve is part of a made-up family, given every possible luxury product, and sent in to become role models for the rest of the town. The goal? To make everyone envy them enough to go out and buy those products. (It's such a diabolically brilliant marketing scheme that you have to wonder why it hasn't been tried yet.) We spoke to Duchovny at the press day for 'The Joneses,' where he talked about the fil ... [Continua a leggere]

David Duchovny's XXX Files

The Californication star on sex addiction, Nietzsche and secondary infections.

Q: This spring you're starring in a movie called The Joneses, in which you play the "father" of a cool but fake family that a corporation assembles to coax their neighbors into buying stuff. I suppose a lot of celebrities do the same thing. A: Yeah, sure. I haven't sold that much. But the culture that's embracing Twilight and Paranormal Activity and District 9 and 2012—you could kind of say that The X-Files sold that. Q: You helped release a media virus. A: Exactly. And now it's reinfected people. I guess it went dormant for a while. Q: You passed through a period of genuine pop-cu ... [Continua a leggere]

Duchovny's Commanding Second Act

David Duchovny, star of Californication, on his literary ambitions, making a third X-Files movie, and his quest for an “uncensored id.”

Very few actors manage to create a Zeitgeist-defining character, let alone two, but David Duchovny—best known for playing alien-obsessed Special Agent Fox Mulder on The X-Files—has defied the odds with the Showtime original series Californication, which earned him a second Golden Globe for his portrayal of misanthropic, sex-addled novelist Hank Moody. The role was largely informed by Duchovny’s time as a Yale doctoral student in his 20s, a decade before he became a household name. “I envisioned that as my life: staying in academia to make a living and then takin ...

David Duchovny

The actor: David Duchovny, who became a star in the ’90s playing an FBI agent investigating the world’s freakiest mysteries on The X-Files. He went on to star in big-budget movies and low-budget indies, often showing a wry sense of humor even when working on the darkest material. He also wrote and directed his own 2004 feature film, House Of D. Duchovny currently stars on the Showtime series Californication as a conflicted writer and serial philanderer; the second season has just been released on DVD, and the third season launches on Showtime later this year. Californication ... [Continua a leggere]

Gillian Anderson & David Duchovny reopen the 'X-Files'

There is at least one secret Gillian Anderson can reveal about "The X-Files: I Want to Believe." For Anderson, returning to play Agent Dana Scully, the role that made the 39-year-old actress famous, is what was really scary. "I found it quite tricky over the first couple of days to slide back into it," says Anderson. "It was kind of unexpected and a bit freakish for me." Freakish, that is, until the first scene that reunited her with Duchovny, aka Agent Fox Mulder. It was innocuous - just a brief conversation between the two agents as they walked down the hallway at FBI headquarters. But ... [Continua a leggere]

David Duchovny on the return of The X Files

All that Californicating seems to have left David Duchovny happy to return to The X Files, says JEFF DAWSON

Deep in the bowels of a disused mental institution, a cadre of nuns shuffles down the corridor. This crumbling Victorian edifice on the outskirts of Vancouver - atmospherically chilled and, at 3am, Exorcist-eerie - has been dressed as the Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Hospital, a key night-shoot location for the film The X-Files: I Want to Believe. “They’re not real nuns. I hope not,” quips David Duchovny, who is reprising his role as the FBI agent Fox Mulder. The wry grin says it all. Recently, before being pressed back into service in this new, feature-length spin-o ... [Continua a leggere]

Torno a X-Files non per soldi ma per amore

«Non è una questione di soldi, erano anni che aspettavo di fare questo film». David Duchovny è tornato a vestire i panni di Fox Mulder, l'agente speciale dell'Fbi che lo ha reso famoso nella serie televisiva «X-Files» in «Voglio crederci», il secondo film tratto dalla serie, in uscita nelle sale americane il 25 luglio, che riprende le avventure degli investigatori del paranormale (in Italia arriverà il 22 agosto). Accanto a Duchovny ci sarà ancora una volta Gillian Anderson, nei panni di Dana Scully. Duchovny, che cosa ha s ... [Continua a leggere]

Jimmy, fate spazio per David Duchovny

Arriva Californication, la serie che ha rilanciato David Duchovny. Ed ecco anche le altre novità per febbraio

Non è una serie di fantascienza, ma molti nostri lettori ne apprezzeranno comunque l'arrivo, sia perché si tratta comunque di un telefilm molto brillante e gradevole, sia perché il protagonista è interpretato dal redivivo David Duchovny, l'indimenticato Fox Mulder di X-Files. Proprio grazie a questa parte Duchovny ha ricevuto nei giorni scorsi il suo secondo Golden Globe.Il suo nuovo personaggio è quanto di più distante di possa immaginare dal precedente. Se Mulder era freddo e distaccato, tanto occupato a dare la caccia agli alieni da impiegare dieci ... [Continua a leggere]

The no-show must go on

It's a surreal affair at the Beverly Hilton, starless and strange

Sunday night at the Golden Globe Awards announcement, you really didn't.Strike-torn and starved of stars, the Globes were thrown, sort of. The nominees were left to feel their schadenfreude and/or exultation from some discreet location, skipping the formal dinner in a show of solidarity with their union brethren at the Writers Guild of America, which remains in a standoff with Hollywood producers.Without Clooney and Clint, or Angelina and Meryl, it was left to the entertainment press to gather at the heavily fortified Beverly Hilton to hear the names of the winners -- if not see them in the fl ...

Winners had a toast, took a bath

Globes awards recipients share reactions

Most of the evening's Golden Globe winners were at hotels when their names were announced -- just not at the Beverly Hilton. "Atonement" producer Paul Webster watched the announcement with director Joe Wright, thesps James McAvoy and Saoirse Ronan and other crew members in a bungalow at the Chateau Marmont in Beverly Hills, glasses of champagne at the ready. "We were lucky enough to be able to pop the cork," said Webster, who added that he didn't feel cheated because "everyone's been treated the same. Somehow you find a way to celebrate when the good news comes out." So, should this truncat ... [Continua a leggere]

Californian sex files

EVERYONE knows that David Duchovny can pull off a suit. After all, this is a man who fitted snugly inside the FBI uniform of Agent Fox Mulder for nine years on The X-Files. And he cornered the market in repression, thanks to the sexual tension between Mulder and partner Scully (Gillian Anderson). So it probably came as something of a surprise to his many fans to see him wandering around in his pants, sometimes even less, and having his way with a string of ladies on his new television show, Californication. It's an interesting career twist for the 47-year-old actor, who swore off TV after the ... [Continua a leggere]

Sesso e alcol, da «X-Files» alle luci rosse

L'agente dell'Fbi specializzato nella caccia agli alieni si trasforma in uno scrittore maudit.
Duchovny nel telefilm-scandalo «Californication», in arrivo in Italia.

MILANO — Per quasi dieci anni è rimasto imprigionato in Fox Mulder, l'agente dell'Fbi alle prese con casi di ordinaria paranormalità. Per dare un bacio alla sua compagna di indagini Dana Scully ci aveva messo una vita. Lasciato ormai alle spalle l'algido personaggio che interpretava in X-Files, David Duchovny diventa uno scrittore maledetto. E sessuomane. Altro che amletici baci, si va subito al dunque. Accade in Californication, la serie tv che, in onda negli Stati Uniti, è stata acquistata da Mediaset. Duchovny interpreta Hank Moody, uno scrittore in crisi che ann ... [Continua a leggere]
