The X-Files revival is going to be an epic event that many people will be on-board for, and when things get emotional and nostalgic, it sometimes leads to tears. Apparently, the tears are already flowing for one of the series's stars, David Duchovny.
He couldn't help himself, and started crying according to his own account to Entertainment Weekly,
“I got the first script this morning. 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].”
The six-episode run for the new version of The X-Files series is set to air on FOX in January 2016. Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, and William B. Davis will also be featured.
Duchovny is optimistic that there might be demand for even more than just the six episodes that were initially ordered.
“I would be open to doing another cycle. I don’t know that I could do a 20-episode version of this show at this point in my life, and I don’t know that Gillian could. But I think everybody is open ended on what happens after this. Certainly, we didn’t bring it back with the idea of ending it.”
I'm down for the cause.
