LA Times: Q&A With 'Holy Cow,' David Duchovny is finally, officially a novelist

Friday, January 30


For his first book, David Duchovny is not telling behind-the-scenes stories of "The X-Files" or opening up about the sex scenes in "Californication": He's written a caper about a cow that goes on the lam.

"Holy Cow" (Farrar, Straus and Giroux: 224 pp., $24) is a fable for adults, full of puns and silly jokes. A turkey is jive. A pig peppers his speech with Yiddish like a grandpa in the Catskills. In fact, the story is set in upstate New York, where the three animal heroes, led by Elsie Bovary, decide to escape their farm to fly to countries where they'll be safe from being eaten.

Duchovny, who reads and signs "Holy Cow" at Barnes & Noble at the Grove on Feb. 18, spoke to us by phone from New York.

David Duchovny: ‘I Like Fooling Around With Words’

The actor talks to Taffy Brodesser-Akner about steamy “X-Files” fan fiction and his new novel, not suitable for Disney.

You have a novel coming out, “Holy Cow,” about a traumatized cow, a sassy turkey and a pig converting to Judaism. What was the impetus to write a book like this?
Ten years ago I had this idea come to me: If I were a cow, why wouldn’t I try to get to India? So I wrote up a treatment, and I pitched it to the only places you can pitch it, Disney and Pixar. Obviously they were wise to stay away from a story that has a pig getting circumcised in it. And then one day last year, I just thought, Well, why don’t I write out that idea?

"Aquarius" 17 Most Anticipated New TV Shows of 2015

Monday, January 19

Though there are plenty of potential new series aiming to debut this year, these 17 are the most exciting shows with confirmed 2015 premieres. Time to get amped.

"Aquarius" (NBC)

David Duchovny in 'Californication'
Why should I care? If you could have seen the trailer debuted for critics at the TCAs last week, "Aquarius" would be your most anticipated show of all time. Since it's not online yet, here's what you need to remember from the two-minute spot: 
1) Open on David Duchovny faux-boxing with a punching box, shirtless.
2) Gethin Anthony as a super-creepy, guitar-playing Charles Manson
3) Drugs. Sex. Violence. Literally, these words are pasted across the screen between visual examples of each.
4) Duchovny mocking police procedures.
5) Duchovny missing a mustache.
6) Duchovny getting serious.

Fox Execs Talk X-Files Revival at TCA - January 17, 2015

Saturday, January 17

From TVLine:

Is the truth still out there? “It’s been reported, and it’s true, that we’ve had some conversations about [reviving] X-Files,” ideally with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, Newman shared. “But I have nothing that we can announce at this time.”

David Duchovny ‘had a really great time’ in Australia, so why hasn’t he come back?

It has been 15 years since David Duchovny last visited Australia and he doesn’t know why he hasn’t been back.

Maybe it is because the 13- to 14-hour flight from Los Angeles “is far”.

“I had a really great time there, it was beautiful,” Duchovny told Confidential.

“I would like to come again. I don’t know why I haven’t been, I really liked Australia.”

Duchovny, 54, perhaps best known for his work on hit US TV series The X Files and Californication, will next be seen in Aquarius.

Q&A: A Change of Tune with David Duchovny

Wednesday, January 7

Right after wrapping production on Aquarius—an NBC series premiering in 2015—David Duchovny turned to a very different project: finishing his debut album, dropping in March. Produced by local indie label ThinkSay Records and recorded at Somerville’s Q Division Studios, it features a backing band of Berklee grads, and Duchovny hit the school to speak with students during his December stay in town. But first, he riffed with us a bit in the studio.

YOU’RE KNOWN FOR YOUR ROLES ON THE X-FILES AND CALIFORNICATION, AND YOU’VE ALSO WRITTEN AND DIRECTED. BUT WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO MUSIC?  I was on a path where I was working four months out of the year, which gave me a lot of time off. I was with my kids in the city, and they were in school all day. So I had a lot of time until 3 o’clock, and I’d always wanted to play guitar. I started teaching myself, you know, looking up chords on the internet for songs that I like, and started playing them. And then I realized, oh hey, these songs are not reinventing anything. It’s rock and roll. So I thought, you know, why can’t I do that? And lyrically I knew that I could hang because I’ve always written. I’ve written a lot of poetry and I’m sort of a mediocre poet, but I think mediocre poets make good lyricists.
