David Duchovny Returns With a New Series, and ‘The X-Files’

SANTA MONICA, CALIF. — “I watch my daughter when she watches TV, and she never turns on a TV,” David Duchovny said recently at a seaside lounge here.
He may have spent most of the past two decades starring in long-running TV series, but he’s still befuddled by how drastically things have shifted over the last few years, as hand-held devices, streaming services and binge watching have made appointment viewing seem increasingly antiquated. “I have no sense of the culture of TV watching,” he said.
It’s hard to blame him for not recognizing the landscape he’s returning to via “Aquarius,” a patchouli-drenched crime drama set in late-’60s Los Angeles.

The show, which has its debut on NBC on Thursday, stars Mr. Duchovny as a detective on the trail of Charles Manson before the Sharon Tate and LaBianca murders. It’s his first top billing in a network series since he played the U.F.O.-obsessed F.B.I. agent Fox Mulder on “The X-Files,” which remains his defining role. (One that he’ll be returning to soon.)

Boomer & Carton: David Duchovny Is Still Quite Relevant

Boomer & Craig were thrilled to get a visit from David Duchovny Tuesday morning, as the Golden Globe winner stopped by the Allstate Studio for a few.
Known primarily for his acting, the multitalented Duchovny is also a musician. He learned to play the guitar just five years ago, and by all accounts is “pretty good.”
The humble Duchovny talked about his career and his famous portrayal of FBI agent Fox Mulder on “The X-Files.” He also discussed getting typecast, his love for the Yankees and the NBA, writing a novel, and, of course, how important it is to “stay relevant”…

Listen: David Duchovny on Norton in the Morning - May 18, 2015

It’s been a busy year for the “X-Files” star. He talks the upcoming return of the classic 90’s sci-fi thriller, and his relationship with Gillian Anderson with the morning show crew!

What’s his new show “Aquarius” got to do with Charles Manson? “It’s using Manson not so much as the person but more as a symbol…Ok this what happens when the kids smoke pot and they have sex and there’s free love, and they’re gonna eventually kill eachother, and it’s gonna turn dark. This is the underside of the hippie revolution.”

David Duchovny stars in “Aquarius” on NBC this summer.

Hell or Highwater: Duchovny on Inspiration for Album, 'X-Files'

Whether you remember him as Mulder on "The X-Files" or Hank Moody on "Californication," David Duchovny now wants you to give him a try as something else: a recording artist. His first album, "Hell or Highwater" was recently released.

David Duchovny Nixes Gillian Anderson Dating Rumors: Mulder & Scully Are 'Gonna Have To Be Enough'

It appears that X-Files star David Duchovny has really taken the whole “deceive, inveigle, obfuscate” thing to heart.

While chatting with TVLine about his upcoming projects — which include NBC’s Aquarius and Fox’s much-buzzed-about X-Files revival — Duchovny confirms that he’s seen the continuation’s first script and offers this tease. (You might want to sit down.)

“It has Mulder and Scully in it,” he says dryly. “You’re just gonna have to wait. You’re gonna have to wait like everybody.”

Perhaps of more interest, albeit to a certain sect of Mulder-and-Scully fans: Duchovny gently shoots down the notion that he and co-star Gillian Anderson have ever been anything more than the FBI’s Most Unwanted.

“The whole thing about Gillian and I dating is so weird. It’s never happened, it’s not going to happen, we’re friends,” he says. “I don’t want to rain on anybody’s parade, but no, it’s not gonna happen. It hasn’t happened.”

The rumors, which have been present for years, made their rounds on the Internet again last week after Anderson joined Duchovny onstage during a recent concert to promote his album Hell or Highwater in New York.

“I see Gillian, I kiss her hello. She’s my friend. If somebody gets a picture of that, if it’s on stage and she comes up to sing with me, I’m going to kiss her hello,” he says. “I wish the show would be enough. I don’t understand why people want more from Gillian and I. I really don’t.”

He adds: “You can have Mulder and Scully, and that’s gonna have to be enough.”
