Now that an all-female "Ghostbusters 3" is officially a go -- and Bill Murray has had his say about his dream cast -- actresses all over Hollywood are no doubt jockeying for a part in the flick. Former "X-Files" star Gillian Anderson is among them, as she used a recent Reddit Ama to appeal to "G3" mastermind Paul Feig to cast her in the hotly-anticipated project.
While promoting her new sci-fi novel "A Vision of Fire," Anderson was asked if she'd be interested in starring in the reboot. Although she was unfamiliar with the project, a quick internet search immediately piqued her interest.
"Oh My God, I just looked it up online," Anderson wrote. "Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I'm free!!!!! I'm free I'm free and I'm funny, goddamnit!"
A follow-up post from a Redditor promising to pass around the hypothetical petition got a big thumbs-up from the actress. »

Gillian Anderson is most famous for portraying the ever sceptical Dana Scully in The X-Files. The show saw her and her on-screen partner David Duchovny catapulted to mega stardom with sci-fi enthusiasts all over the world becoming obsessed with the show. Since the show ended Anderson has gone on to carve out an impressive career for herself. Her more recent roles in The Fall and Hannibal have gone down particularly well with audiences.
The busy actress also managed to find the time to co-pen her first novel A Vision of Fire which is out in shops now. Whilst promoting the book she took to Reddit for a ‘Ask Me Anything’ session. During the online chat she was asked the inevitable X-Files 3 question which she politely skirted around by merely stating that there have ‘kinda’ been talks and to keep our ‘ears to the ground’. She was rather more excited by »

Thanks to "The X-Files," there's no doubt that Gillian Anderson will always be one of the most prominent females in the genre of science fiction. However, since she's not so busy tracking conspiracies, aliens and other strange cases, she's looking to enter the world of the paranormal. Anderson just recently took part in a Reddit Ama (via THR) and was asked whether or not she was interested in the all-female Ghostbusters reboot that's in the works from director Paul Feig and his The Heat writer Katie Dippold. Surely every female actress in Hollywood is hungry for a role in the film, and Anderson revealed that she's no different. In answer to the fans question, Anderson exploded in a fury of excitement and exclamation points, ""Oh My God, I just looked it up online. Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I'm free!!!!! I'm free I'm free and I'm funny, »

Over the course of nine years on The X-Files, Gillian Anderson's legendary portrayal of Dana Scully was that of a woman who slowly but surely went from being a dyed in the wool skeptic to a believer in all that is paranormal. It was a shift that was subtle and believable, largely in thanks to Anderson's considerable acting chops against partner in crime David Duchovny. This makes for a killer set up for how Gillian Anderson flipped out when she found out that Paul Feig was making his all female Ghostbusters project. And now she wants in. During a Reddit Ama on Sunday, Gillian Anderson was asked by a fan about whether she'd want to be part of the new Ghostbusters reboot that Feig and writer Katie Dippold are crafting. Not only did she not know about it, but as you'll see below she was more than excited about »
Who ya gonna call? Gillian Anderson! The X-Files actress participated in a Reddit Ama (Ask Me Anything) on Sunday, Oct. 12, during which she was asked about the upcoming all-female reboot of Ghostbusters. Anderson, 46, who wasn't familiar with Paul Feig's planned sequel, researched it and responded: "Oh My God, I just looked it up online. Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I'm free!!!!! I'm free I'm free and I'm funny, goddamnit!" (The latest Ghostbusters film generated more buzz last week when it was announced [...] »
Apparently The X-Files star Gillian Anderson had no clue about Paul Feig's plans for an all-female Ghostbusters reboot, but after checking out the project, says she wants to star in the film. It all started when while speaking in a recent Reddit Ama, Gillian Anderson was asked if she was interested in the reboot. Oh My God, I just looked it up online. Paul Feig, cast me now!

Gillian Anderson is on the promotional trail right now for her new novel that she's co-written with Jeff Rovin, A Vision Of Fire. And as part and parcel of that, she's done one of those spangly Reddit Ask Me Anything sessions. People asked, and she did indeed answer.
The inevitable question of the long-mooted The X-Files 3 movie came up, and Anderson far from batted it off. Had there been any more news on it? "Uh... uh... uh", she wrote. "Sorta kinda. Keep your ears to the ground".
In the same chat, Anderson was also asked »
Former "The X-Files" star Gillian Anderson is keeping busy with a new novel "A Vision of Fire" out in book stores, the second season of "The Fall" slated to air shortly, and her role on NBC's "Hannibal" upgraded to a regular next season.
During a Reddit Ama to promote the book, Anderson was asked if there had been any progress on the long-rumored third "X-Files" film. She said: "Uh....uh... uh... Sorta kinda. Keep your ears to the ground." This follows on from comments last fall by her co-star David Duchovny who said: "All the principals are on board. Gillian and I want to do it, so it's really up to 20th Century Fox at this point."
She was also asked about the recent reports of an all-female "Ghostbusters" to which she responded: "Oh My God, I just looked it up online. Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! »

Now that director Paul Feig has officially signed on to direct an all-female version Ghostbusters, the big question remains who the filmmaker will cast in the reboot. While promoting her new novel A Vision of Fire in a Reddit Ama session, The X-Files star Gillian Anderson revealed that she wants to be a part of this highly-anticipated project. Take a look at what she had to say below.
"Oh My God, I just looked it up online. Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I'm free!!!!! I'm free I'm free and I'm funny, goddamnit!"
There have been a number of supporters and detractors of this all-female approach to Ghostbusters over the past few weeks. Original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray offered a number of suggestions last month, including his St. Vincent co-star Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Linda Cardellini and Emma Stone. However, another original star, Ernie Hudson, spoke out »
Since sci-fi hit The X-Files catapulted Gillian Anderson to a life-changing level of fame, she has remained dedicated to the small screen. As the level-headed Scully in The X-Files, The Fall‘s reserved and stoic Stella Gibson and her recent turn as Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier in Hannibal, there’s been a similar vibe to her characters. That’s not to say she’s at her best when playing to type – far from it – but simply that there’s a commonality in her choices. But, it seems Anderson is up for a change of tone, as we’ve learned today that the actress would quite like to tickle your ribs for a role in the upcoming spook reboot, Ghostbusters 3.
The long-gestating sequel to the 80s franchise has finally pushed forward in the last week. We now know that the third instalment will not be a continuation of the original storyline. »

It’s a brave new world for DC Comics. After the success of Arrow, the company has launched into the TV market with shows based around their popular characters. But while we wait for Supergirl to go into production and before Constantine hits the airwaves, we have a duo of new shows who have recently debuted on the idiot box. The “Before Batman” series Gotham and the Crimson Speedster’s return to television, The Flash.
But which was better?
Gotham‘s pilot was lambasted by the majority of those who saw it. Our own Anthony Stokes hasn’t been kind with his reviews and even penned an article claiming the show to be “pointless”. When speaking with other members of the Flickering Myth writing staff, the feeling seems mutual. Editor-in-chief Gary Collinson (who »

That gum we like is going to come back in style, as Showtime has teamed with "Twin Peaks" creators David Lynch and Mark Frost to revive the strangest series in the history of network television, with new installments to arrive in 2016. Last week, Frost and Lynch freaked out Twitter-dom — or, at least, the part of Twitter that recalls their brilliant, demented, unsustainable ABC drama from 1990-91 — by simultaneously tweeting out the same reference to the single weirdest scene to ever air on a broadcast network drama.

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb….
Robert Kojder wrote for Flickering Myth yesterday about the tease of Twin Peaks and it’s timing:
“For those that haven’t seen the show, there is a critical plot point alluding to the narrative continuing 25 years after its initial ending. Twin Peaks left the air 23 years ago, so the timing is beginning to come together. It remains to be seen if these tweets mean anything, but it is exciting to see more teasing of the series possibly making a return.”
It’s funny how stories intertwine and interlock over the course of time. While Richard Linklater creates Boyhood over the course of twelve years, programmes that allude to a moment 25 years in the future, get their comeback at the perfect time.
In fact, with the release of the DVD’s, and the recent BluRay ‘Entire Mystery’ of Twin Peaks, more viewers have »

Twin Peaks, the cult show that blended horror and soap opera, will return with nine new episodes in 2016, say co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost. The co-creators teased fans the return just a few days ago by tweeting this at the exact same time:

Today, however, it was announced that Showtime not only had adopted the rights to the series, but that they would air reruns leading up to the revival in early 2016 (ostensibly also to air on the channel). The network released this statement along with the following video:
Gillian Anderson has come a long way from her big debut on "The X-Files" back in 1993 ... and so have her paychecks!The actress, now 46, opens up about how former costar David Duchovny took home a considerable amount more than her when the show started out."At the beginning, the pay disparity was massive," she tells Red magazine. "But that happens all the time in Hollywood. It’s, 'Do this for me, I’ll get you a job.' All the stuff in the papers today about people in entertainment who have abused their position ... it’s built into our society. It’s easy to miss and it’s easy to get used to it." "There are things that are intolerable in today’s world, in terms of the perception of women," she continues. "Whether they’re vamps or vixens, the expectation that, if a woman is wearing a short skirt, »

It is not uncommon for a hit Us television series to lose its main star somewhere down the line. In fact, history is riddled with examples of sad occasions where a show has had to continue on without one of its main attractions. George Clooney stopped saving lives for ER, David Duchovny gave up on extra-terrestrial investigation for The X-Files and Steve Carell resigned from the American Office. However, although those shows each carried on to enjoy similar levels of success, few would argue that Charlie Sheen’s departure from Two and a Half Men left the series with a permanent void.
In 2011, Sheen left the hit CBS comedy series after a heavily publicised row with its creator and head writer Chuck Lorre (The Big Bang Theory). As you are probably aware, Two and a Half Men continued on with Ashton Kutcher replacing Sheen in the lead role opposite Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones. »

Katharine Isabelle's career may find her taking on material that is all over the genre map, but she has always kept one foot firmly planted in the world of horror. From her early days appearing on Goosebumps and The X-Files to Disturbing Behavior and Freddy vs. Jason, this actress has shown her allegiance to horror...even though she admits she can't watch horror films herself.
Isabelle captured our attention in a big way with American Mary, a film by Jen and Sylvia Soska that served as a starring vehicle for the actress. She was front and center, pushing herself in ways we had not seen before.

Key & Peele: We were too busy on our show to film an Obamacare sketch with President Obama “We had to turn him down,” says Jordan Peele. “We were making the season.” Adds Keegan-Michael Key: “We literally couldn’t fit it in to our schedules...So we actually had to relieve the president of his duties." Chris from “Everybody Hates Chris” joins “The Walking Dead” Tyler James Williams, who’s almost 22 and who most recently starred on “Go On," will play a character named Noah.

Julie Chen on if we’ll get another “Big Brother: All-Stars”: “I don’t think so” "I mean, look at the ratings for this past season — higher than last year, all new people,” she tells EW.
