Tea Leoni's Daughter Loves Blood

15 November 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Tea Leoni (photos) and David Duchovny's (photos) 18-month-old daughter Madelaine already has an addiction - to blood. Leoni, who currently filming Jurassic Park 3 (2001), was concerned about her daughter, who she takes with her on set, seeing her mother covered in blood. So she devised a way to show baby Madelaine the wounds didn't really hurt - covering her daughter in fake gashes too. Leoni says, "I was really concerned about having blood all over my face in front of her for Jurassic Park Then we figured it out. We told her these wounds were fake ones, that they didn't hurt. and she sat there and looked at it. Then we gave her one and boom! She became a fake-blood addict. Let me tell you, we have more Band-Aids all over the house." »

New X-Files Star: The T-1000 Terminator

21 July 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

David Duchovny's replacement in cult TV series The X-Files has been revealed - and he's an invincible robot. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) actor Robert Patrick will take over from Duchovny's Fox Mulder character for the eigth series of the popular sci-fi series - after the Return to Me (2000) star decided to commit to only 11 episodes in the new season. Patrick - who played the robot from the future who battled with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Terminator film - clinched the prized role in the face of stiff competition from Lou Diamond Phillips, Hart Bochner and Bruce Campbell to play Gillian Anderson's new partner. »

Question Mark Over Whether Mulder Will Stay With X-Files

18 May 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hit sci-fi show THE X-FILES will return for an eighth season - but David Duchovny is locked in last minute talks to decide whether he will be a part of it. Duchovny's co-star Gillian Anderson has signed on the dotted line to return with the programme, but the Return to Me (2000) actor is seeking more money and a less gruelling work schedule. His demands are also being complicated by a lawsuit he has filed against 20TH CENTURY FOX. The suit claims Duchovny was underpaid after the program syndication was undercut. Duchovny says, "I definitely could do another year, but I really don't know if it will happen. I've made my terms clear." Series creator Chris Carter says, "My contract connects me to the show for another season, I've agreed to do it either way with or without Duchovny." Sunday will see the airing of the finale for the seventh season - allegedly they have shot two episodes. Which one is shown will be based on Duchovny's decision to return. The first shows Mulder being lost in space, while the other keeps him safe on the ground. »

Duchovny: X-Files Owes Me A Fortune

1 May 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor David Duchovny has spoken about his decision to quit his hit TV show. Despite earning $500, 000 per episode, the actor claims X-FILES makers FOX TELEVISION still owe him a fortune from syndication rights, and he is quitting the show to contest the dispute in court. He says, "I'm willing to take it all the way if I have to. I really feel I'm owed this money and they have done me over." Duchovny has not ruled out making another X-Files movie, but he vows he will not shoot any more television shows after the current series ends. He says, "I'll never, ever return to the X-Files on TV. It may continue without me. But for me it's the end - or it will be when my case comes to court." »

Duchovny To Quit X-Files

11 April 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

X-FILES star David Duchovny wants to dedicate less time to the hit show - but bosses at the TV network he is suing are ready to replace him. Duchovny says he's unwilling to return to the show for an eighth season, a reluctance which he insists is "more about time commitment" than money. He says, "At this point in my career, I can't spend another 10 months this year or next year doing X-Files. I don't want to, creatively or professionally." But Producer Chris Carter is currently locked in negotiations with 20TH CENTURY FOX TELEVISION about returning the show to the Fox network, with or without Duchovny. The actor is currently in a legal battle with Fox for a larger share of profits from syndicated reruns, and a substantial pay hike. He has suggested he'd return for a much smaller number of episodes than the 22 customary for a season, but the studio wants him for an entire year or not at all - and executives insist they'll replace him if need be. »

Bonnie Hunt's $25 Million Home Video

7 April 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Bonnie Hunt's latest film Return to Me (2000) was such a family affair - the end result is like a home video. The JERRY McGUIRE star, who co-wrote, directed and starred in the movie which also stars Minnie Driver and David Duchovny, gave bit-parts to several of her relations so that four 'Hunts' appear on the cast list. And Hunt, who shot the movie in her home town of Chicago, says the nepotism was so obvious - even her own family commented on it. She says, "My brother said, 'Isn't it nice. You have a $25 million home movie' and I think he kind of has a point." But Hunt says working with all her relations in her home town definitely had its advantages. She says, "I did it in my own neighbourhood in Chicago so I didn't want for anything... The police were like, 'what do you need Bonnie? You want us to block the street? We'll do anything.'" »

7 April 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

X-FILES star David Duchovny is planning to return to his old university to inspire a new generation of actors. The hunky actor graduated with high honors from PRINCETON UNIVERSITY, got his Master's at YALE (studying Literature) and says he intends to give something back to the institution. He says, "I called my old thesis advisor a few months ago and said can I come back and put together some students and I'll talk to them... We'll show the episode I wrote and directed and I'll act like I'm a filmmaker and we'll have a discussion and it'll be fun. She said she'd love to so I may do that." »

Chicago Made James Belushi Fat

5 April 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

James Belushi hated making his new movie with Minnie Driver - because the part made him put on weight. The American funnyman had to shoot Return to Me (2000) with Driver and David Duchovny in Chicago - but he says the city had a disastrous effect on his waistline. He explains, "I just couldn't stop eating on the set of this movie. "I got fat in Chicago, I ate everything in Chicago. Beef sandwiches, pizza and hot dogs, I went to a Cubs' game, went to Italian places, the only problem with the place is that you eat a lot... It wouldn't be bad if I didn't have to take my shirt off in the film and roll my belly. All I eat in LA normally is chicken and lettuce, salad, chicken, salad, salad and protein burger." »

David Duchovny Wishes He Could Mate Like An Insect

23 March 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former "X-Files" star David Duchovny loves every part of fatherhood - except how long it takes for a baby to be made. The Hollywood actor and his actress wife TEA LEONI both admit bringing up their little girl is a "challenge" but one they're loving. And when it comes to the question of having more kids, Duchovny has one hesitation - waiting another nine months for Leoni to give birth. He says, "I guess we'd like more, but they take nine months to bake. I kind of wish we were more like insects. Do it in the evening, have the baby two days later. That would be great." »
