The X-Files (1993– )
How the X-Files can Make Fun of Itself and Its Fans and Get Away With It
Now, the folks behind the show have done the world a favor and released a clip from the initial audition process, which features the soon-to-be Claire and Jamie experiencing an intense moment of bonding.
A screen test like this, sometimes known as a “chemistry read,” is basically an opportunity for producers to see how two actors in consideration would play opposite each other. Sometimes, the experience is an awkward bout of speed dating. And sometimes, it’s the sort of immediate engagement like we see in the clip below.
Given how many TV shows have become massive successes due to the connection between their leads (“Friends,” “The X-Files,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Sex and the City”) the importance of finding two actors who
Written by Rob McEveety and inspired by true events, the film centers on an unhinged oil baron who gets in a bruising standoff with a stubborn farmer after the water on his farm was poisoned by her company.
I’m also aware that series creator Chris Carter has floated the idea of continuing the iconic Fox drama without Anderson’s Scully, like how the series handled David Duchovny’s absence in Seasons 8 and 9 of the original run.
“I always thought of David the way I thought about the child William, as an absent center. Even when he wasn’t there,
And that’s Ok. You know it, I know it, and Duchovny knows it; just like he knows a lot of people will come to his concerts because “they want to see this actor that they know.”
“Once they get there, they’re not going to like [my music] just because they like me,” Duchovny said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “Music is unprejudiced. Your ears don’t see color. Your ears don’t see sex, they don’t see anything. They just hear. [laughs] I feel pretty good, like a certain amount of people are going to like what they hear,
This week’s question: What is the best will-they-won’t-they couple ever on TV? (Current and past shows are fair game.)

This is tough. The will they or won’t they trope is so pervasive in television, picking a “best” is like looking for the shiniest grain of sand on a beach. The classic duos are obvious: Sam and Diane, David and Maddie, Carrie and Mr. Big, Ross and Rachel, Kermit and Miss Piggy. They’re the backbones of some of the best shows on television, but they’re also tremendously obvious and discussed to death. So my picks are going to be extremely personal and super specific.
Well, that’s it. Once this season of The X-Files is over, Dana Scully is no more. Gillian Anderson has decided that it’s finally time to retire a character who has loomed over her career since 1993, when she was but the wee age of 24. “I’ve done this now for decades,” she said on a recent press tour, “and it’s time for me to hang up Scully’s hat.” Scully’s frustrating lack of an actual hat notwithstanding, after 25 years chasing ghouls, aliens and Giovanni Ribisi, you have to agree that both Anderson and Scully probably deserve a bit of a sit down.

Among those mooted reports were one or two rumors of a female-fronted reboot, as well, one which would have welcomed an actress like Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) into the ranks of MI6. It would certainly play into the whole gender-swapping craze that has gripped Hollywood in recent years, resulting in such projects as Ocean’s 8 and Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, along with mooted female-flipped reboots of The Nice Guys and 21 Jump Street.
But when it comes to James Bond, in particular, Rachel Weisz (real-life partner to current 007, Daniel Craig) disputed the idea of a female-led reboot on the belief that “women should have their own stories.”
Why not create your own story rather than
If this really is to be the final run of The X-Files, then ‘Kitten’ is either breadcrumb dropping for a Walter Skinner spin-off series (highly unlikely) or giving Mitch Pileggi’s long suffering, shadow-dwelling Ad the send-off he deserves.
Only ever afforded a single episode, way back in season 3 (episode 21 – ‘Avatar’), which attempted to peer into the loneliness of his personal life, with Mulder and Scully investigating the fall-out of Skinner’s one-night-stand.
‘Kitten’ similarly focuses on what maketh the man, delving into Skinner’s past on the Vietnam battlefield. Through a series of flashbacks we see him putting a protective arm around Haley Joel Osment’s frightened soldier, only for an outbreak of toxic gas to turn him from the boy who saw dead people, into a psychopathic military man who creates them.
In the present, Ad Kersh (James Pickens Jr.

That’s the refrain to “Red Right Hand,” a clanging, gloom-and-doom, six-minute-plus blues noir penned by Nick Cave and his fellow Bad Seeds, guitarist Mick Harvey and drummer Thomas Wydler, for the band’s 1994 album, “Let Love In,” originally released on Mute Records. Some 24 years later, the darkly foreboding track, reputedly a nod to the vengeful hand of God in John Milton’s epic “Paradise Lost,” has gained an unlikely second act as a sync magnet for a wide range of high-visibility movies, TV shows and ad campaigns.
Mute Song’s David McGinnis has been working with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds for the past 18 years and helped engineer a variety of sync usages over that time. Mute Songs, the music publishing arm for Daniel Miller’s groundbreaking label, has published

“I found it liberating to use my body to make an important statement,” says the usually modest Emmy-winning star of The X-Files and co-author of last year’s bestseller We: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere, which will be out in paperback later this month. “People tend to look away from anti-fur ads showing mangled animals, but they’re drawn to PETA’s ‘naked’ campaign, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
The campaign featuring Anderson launches in the wake of announcements by Michael Kors and Gucci that they’ll no longer use fur, following years of protests and negotiations by the group. Other designers who’ve dropped fur include Ralph Lauren, Vivienne Westwood, and Giorgio Armani,
