MULDER'S HAPPY ENDING, 'HUMBUG' ORIGINS AND MORE SECRETS WE LEARNED FROM THE X-FILES' CRITICAL COMPANION
The star talks with THR about the big twist in the season 11 (and possibly series) finale.
Did The X-Files just kill off one of its longest-running characters?Throughout 11 seasons and two feature films, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) were able to rely on their boss, Assistant Director Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi). Although the relationship was occasionally strained — including this season as Skinner kept his reluctant ties to the villainous Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) quiet — no one has been a better ally to the wayward duo. But during Wednesday’s season (and possibly series) finale, it appeared that the character sa ... [Continua a leggere]
EXCLUSIVE: THE X-FILES' MITCH PILEGGI AND WRITER GABE ROTTER SPILL THE SECRETS OF SKINNER'S PAST IN 'KITTEN'
Over the span of The X-Files' 24-years of existence, actor Mitch Pileggi has embodied the role of Agent Mulder and Agent Scully's gruff, emotionally reserved boss, FBI Assistant Director Walter Sergei Skinner. Aside from the knowledge that he was in Vietnam and almost died, that he was married once, and that his relationship with his X-Files agents can at best be described as "complicated," Skinner remains largely a mystery. Even Pileggi was admittedly mock-grousing in Season 10 that it would be nice to know more about his character. Luckily, Chris Carter's assistant and X ... [Continua a leggere]

After the presentation of the latest trailer of the new season, the different members of the press took turns to inquire about th ... [Continua a leggere]
In The X-Files ‘ newly released Season 11 trailer, longtime frenemies Mulder and Skinner can be seen literally going at each other’s throats. What’s the nature of the duo’s beef this time around? We got the truth out of Mitch Pileggi. “It’s about Scully,” Skinner’s portrayer tells TVLine, adding that he has long attempted to telegraph to the audience that his short-fused G-man “might have a little crush on Scully” — one that that has led him to have some “resentment toward Mulder.” Combine that with the fact that bo ...

‘The X-Files’ is returning once again to television in January. In addition to the expected (and much anticipated) returns of iconic agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, the new season will also offer a chance to catch up with fan favorite supporting character Walter Skinner. Skinner, who began life as a relatively minor recurring character, would over time become a beloved fixture of the show, at times effectively acting as a third series lead. At New York Comic Con, we had the chance to speak with the man who brought Skinner to life, actor Mitch Pileggi. With Pileggi, we ... [Continua a leggere]

Although ... [Continua a leggere]

"If it continues, I'll always want to do this character," Pileggi tells THR. "Whether [Carter] wants me to do it or not, or whether he has things for me to do are another thing."
When The X-Files revival launches in January, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) will have a familiar face in their corner: Mitch Pileggi's Skinner. Skinner — who was the duo's FBI boss for most of the Fox drama's nine seasons — has been a key fixture in the X-Files universe. And for Pileggi, he also has the distinction of being the only person (outside of Anderson and Duchovny) who appeared all nine seasons of the series and both feature films. (And he also appeared in the one-season X-Files spinoff, The Lone Gunmen.) With the revival around the corner, THR ca ... [Continua a leggere]
