'X-FILES 2' DAY: Interviewing Frank Spotnitz

'X-Files 2' producer and co-writer

We jam our recorders into Frank Spotnitz's goateed mug as if his chin is a battery charging hub. He's our tour guide for the set visit minus the microphone and bus, and we're taking him to task on his tour guide skills by drilling questions at him like it's tennis with 3 balls. It's a mobile press conference and yes yes, the set is nifty and all, but what in the hell is the official name for X-Files 2 and how's Vancouver treating you and where's Mulder's infamous porn collection stashed? Yet, that's warm up. Part 1 How psyched are you to be back? Frank Spotnitz (FS): Oh I have to say I ... [Continua a leggere]

'X-FILES 2' DAY: Interviewing Chris Carter

'X-Files 2' producer, co-writer and director

A few us stumbled upon Chris Carter in the catering tent early afternoon. We had him cornered. And caught off guard with a pastry hanging from his mouth. No better time for him to slip and actually give us some real answers about X-Files 2. Yet all we—the cream of the movie news press—could rally was a hard hitting probe regarding Larry, Carter's enormous standard poodle that'd been roaming the set. The sun is melting into an oil slick now. Several reporters grumble about the ever-increasing possibility of missing their flights. Carter has been promised to us all day. But h ...

'X-FILES 2' DAY: Interviewing Gillian Anderson

The lovely lady also known as Scully

We've been anticipating the interview with Gillian Anderson all day. After all, the majority of us are men. Geeks. Nerds. And a few mutants perhaps. Several of us young enough to have tacked a pinup of her on our bedroom wall during high school or college. I did. And to this day I still have a fondness for red heads… in business suits. I don't know what to expect when she joins us at the round table. Perhaps there'll be an absolute collapse of professionalism and Gillian will be confronted by a dozen crazed, drool-choked fanboys asking her to autograph their flabby chests. I had ...

'X-FILES 2' DAY: Interviewing David Duchovny

You may know him as Fox Mulder

We've pushed two plastic refectory tables together and called dibs on our seats like children at lunch, aiming to score the chair next to the cool kid. Word is David Duchovny is rolling in early just to jam with us as only a busy, world famous actor and 15 lowly entertainment journos can. He's the first interview and we hear he's coming soon; he may already be here. And then we wait very quiet like for minutes, as if the slightest conversation will propel Duchovny to his trailer and fortify it with mace and tire iron. The soundstage is nothing more than a dank warehouse, and when the i ... [Continua a leggere]

'X-FILES 2' DAY: The Story of a Set Visit

Not your average day at the office

Okay so it's happening like this. It's mid-February and Fox has shipped RopeofSilicon and a gang of other press folks out to visit the X-Files 2 set. And we're inside a dank warehouse by some fairgrounds where rollercoasters loop across the horizon like red scribble. Not doing much of anything. No directions given other than to wait and not break anything. And no photos please. You'll be seeing the set soon enough and we'll work in interviews when we can. Great. Awesome. Fantastic. I need a breather anyway after that rocket ride through Vancouver our Elton John look-alike driver gave us ... [Continua a leggere]
