David Duchovny Breaks Down Crying After Reading New 'X-Files' Script

David Duchovny cried tears of joy after reading the 'X-Files' reboot script.

David Duchovny's acting career is on a role. He recently finished filming seven seasons of 'Californiacation.' Duchovny also fulfilled a life-long dream recording an album, releasing a book. Now, the actor is looking forward to returning as Agent Fox Mulder on 'The X-Files' David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson know how to excite a crowd. After news of 'The X-Files' reboot were revealed, the two locked lips in New York City, and David Duchovny revealed to fans that he broke down crying after reading the new script. His feelings may be geniune but, there's a reason he's sharing it with the Internet. David Duchovny says the first page of The X-Files revival script made him cry–and it’s fantastic.
“I got the first script this morning,” the actor told EW during a recent interview. “I just read it about an hour ago and I started crying reading the first page. It was just so strange to see the names on the page. It had nothing to do with the script itself. It was just like, I’d been talking about this for a long time. We’d been planning it for a long time. It took a long time to get all the people in the same place and get the deal with Fox. So let’s say two years we’ve been talking about doing it. Now it’s the fun part. Now we actually get to do it. That was nice and strangely emotional for me, and I’ll have to figure out how to use that [in the performance>.” But what about the script itself? “I can tell you absolutely nothing–and it’s fantastic,” Duchovny said.
Fox only gave the series six episodes until they feel the audience is interested in watching Mulder and Scully solve unsolved mysteries. David Duchovny points out that the mini-season will feature both stand-alone mysteries and some of the classic 'X-Files' suspense. Some familiar characters will also be brought back including John Doggett (Robert Patrick), Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish), and assistant director Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi). David Duchovny says he is also open to more episodes after the mini-season. This will most likely happen. What do you think? Discuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook.
