David Duchovny says 'Aquarius' is an epic drama. Duchovny, who many know from the successful TV show "X-Files" is returning to the small screen in the show "Aquarius." He says he enjoyed taking baths so much as a little boy that he told people he wanted to be a bathtub when he grew up.

Excerpts From Our David Duchovny 'Aquarius' Interview

Actor David Duchovny has either sleuthed out the answer to ’round-the-clock productivity or has found a way to clone himself. How else could one human lead the reboot of one of the most successful cult television shows of all time (The X-Files), write a satirical novel about pop-culture-spurting cows, record a rock album, and produce/star in a new drama, NBC’s Aquarius, all in the same year?

David Duchovny on an NC-17 'Aquarius' Cut and Why Mulder is a 'Very Bad Cop' on 'The X-Files'

Thursday, May 28

"There's the cut, and there's the fucking cut."

With "Aquarius," NBC is doing two things never done before on broadcast TV: releasing an entire season of television simultaneously and making David Duchovny play a real cop. Much has been made about the Peacock's decision to distribute the full first season of John McNamara's period cop drama the day after its traditional broadcast debut, but some may be surprised to hear Duchovny doesn't think of his past characters as cops. Yes, even thatcharacter.

"Aquarius" marks the actor's first role on broadcast television since playing FBI Agent Fox Mulder on "The X-Files" — a role he'll be reprising for a new season in 2016 — but he's not straying far from cable. "Aquarius" is a hard-edged network drama, and Duchovny (as well as series creator John McNamara) said there's more than what you'll see on NBC. An "NC-17" cut has been created, even if it may not be available domestically.

IGN interview: David Duchovny on Facing Off with Charles Manson in Aquarius

Wednesday, May 27

David Duchovny is returning to TV this week in the new NBC series, Aquarius. Duchovny stars as LAPD detective Sam Hodiak, an old school cop having trouble adjusting to the changing times in 1967.

The fictionalized story follows what happens when Hodiak begins an off the books investigation into the disappearance of the teenage daughter (Emma Dumont) of an old girlfriend – and discovers she’s joined a group of drifters who’ve fallen under the leadership of Charles Manson (Game of Thrones’ Gethin Anthony), who’s a couple of years away from the 1969 murders that would make him infamous.

At the NBC Upfronts earlier this month, I had a quick chat with Duchovny about Aquarius and his character – along with the show’s notable release strategy, as NBC will be posting the entire 13-episode season online this Friday, a la Netflix, after the show’s two-hour premiere airs Thursday night.

BIO INTERVIEW: Duchovny Talks New 'Aquarius' Role & Being a Renaissance Man

David Duchovny explains (in blunt terms) why 'Aquarius' got his attention and why he's exploring other forms of art. But unfortunately, he's staying mum on the whole X-Files reboot.
Flashback to 1967 and the summer of love when thousands of flower children came together and started a social revolution. In Los Angeles, LAPD Detective Sam Hodiak (David Duchovny) is having trouble adjusting to the change in the mores in the world he and the Greatest Generation saved from fascism 20 years previously during World War II.

That is the backdrop for NBC's new summer series Aquarius, premiering May 28th, a work of historical fiction in which Hodiak solves crimes, and while doing so, encounters Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony), who is just beginning to become the Pied Piper and two years later will convince his followers to commit the heinous Tate-LaBianca murders.

LA Times: David Duchovny hits L.A.'s trippy streets in '60s-era 'Aquarius'

NBC's "Aquarius" transports hippies, flower power, free love and a budding psychopath named Charles Manson to prime time.

More significant for network TV watchers, "Aquarius" marks the dawning of the new age of David Duchovny.

The drama, premiering Thursday, is a return to broadcast for the actor who first shot to stardom on Fox with the iconic sci-fi series "The X-Files" and then leaped to cable, spending seven seasons on Showtime's racy "Californication" as a troubled, alcoholic writer grappling with life and family difficulties.

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

Friday, May 22

“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.)

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.”

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.”

"Passenger" Song Lyrics by David Duchovny

Thursday, May 14

Song title: Passenger
Written by: David Duchovny
Album: Hell orHighwater


On the road alone, driving free and clear
Heavy foot, heavy heart
But I feel you in me
Objects in the mirror are farther than they appear
Objects in the mirror are not what they appear
I see the sky and the ocean
The rise and the fall
What my mind regrets
My heart accepts
Passing witness to the crazy costume ball
Lonely witness to the beauty of it all

You’re not there I turn to stare
No matter where you are 
I drive with you everywhere 
The passenger in my car 
The passenger of my heart

It’s been 5 years since I’ve seen you
People ask why I don’t grieve you 
The secrets not plain to see
I carry you dear to me 
Carry you near in the shotgun seat right here next to me 
Ever present right-hand girl right here next to me 

You’re not there I turn to stare
No matter where you are 
I drive with you everywhere
The passenger in my car 
The passenger of my heart

On the road to somewhere
Into the great wide open 
Where I go I don’t care
But I won’t give up hoping

With you at my side
I’ll drive all night to get there
With you inside
I’ll drive all night to the heart of nowhere

You’re not there I turn to share
No matter where you are
I drive with you everywhere
The passenger in my car 
The passenger of my heart 
Passenger of my heart 
Shotgun of my heart


'Let It Rain' Song Lyrics by David Duchovny

Song: "Let It Rain"
Written by: David Duchovny
Album: Hell or Highwater

If you knew me you would stay
If you knew me you would walk away
We don’t get black and white
Ours is only shadowed light

This is how it goes
One year's golden and the next one blows
It could be I am wrong
Mistaking breaking dusk for dawn
You see I’ve heard of this before
My glass celing could be your ground floor
If I knew better I would stay
If I knew better I would walk away

Like the earth that splits and moves
Woman by her fault known
I don’t see crack and sin
Only see how the light gets in
The grey sky’s it threatens rain above
As our love it threatens pain, my love
You can’t hurt the one you already left behind
Walk it back baby take another breath rewind
And let it rain
Let it rain

There is nothing you could do
To make me turn my back on you
There is nothing you could say
I’ve imagined worse anyway

The waves break on the shore
The shore only waits for more
Like the earth that splits in moves
A woman by her faults known
I don’t see cracks and sin
Only see how the light gets in
The grey sky it threaten rain above
As our love I threatens pain, my love
You can’t hurt the one you’ve already left behind
Walk it back baby take another breath rewind
And let it rain
Let it rain
Let it rain

Interview: David Duchovny shifts from actor to musician

Saturday, May 9

You know him as Mulder from “The X-Files,” Hank Moody from “Californication,” his numerous cameos on “The Larry Sanders Show,” and, if we’re going way back, as the host of “The Red Shoe Diaries.” Now he’s stepping into his most personal role yet. Ladies and gentlemen: David Duchovny, singer-songwriter.

On Tuesday, the actor will release his debut album, “Hell or Highwater,” on the Boston-based indie label ThinkSay Records. The entire project, in fact, has local roots. His backing band includes Berklee-trained musicians who play in a group called Weather, including Colin Lee, who produced the album. They holed up last winter and recorded at Q Division Studios in Somerville.

NEW INTERVIEW: Yahoo Music: David Duchovny on His Debut Album - May 7, 2015

Thursday, May 7

David Duchovny began playing guitar a few years ago while still working on the now-defunct Showtime show Californication. When I visited Duchovny on set, twice, he wasn’t looking to make an album because as he put it at the time, “I may be learning guitar, but I’ll never be able to sing. So I would say no, there are some things that God has prohibited from the beginning.”

A few years later, though, Duchovny is releasing his debut album, Hell Or Highwater. So what changed? “These are my songs and I’m telling my story, so I should be able to put them over. I should be able to make you feel them,” he says.

NEW INTERVIEW: Grantland - Duchovny Goes Electric - May 7, 2015

The erstwhile star of ‘The X-Files’ is releasing an album. Of music. And it’s pretty good. He has also published his first novel, is headlining a new Charles Manson miniseries for NBC, and will soon be Agent Mulder once more. This is the dawning of the age of David Duchovny.

I have been instructed to meet David Duchovny in Santa Monica at 3:30 p.m. on a Thursday. I roll up to a mutually agreed-upon restaurant at 3:20. From the hostess station I can see Duchovny in a street-facing mirror. He’s wearing shades and one of those Henley shirts that really look good only on a David Duchovny–type guy. He’s rapping with another dude his age over a chip-based appetizer.

Fans know actor-director David Duchovny best for portraying not one but two classic TV characters -- Fox Mulder on The X-Files and Hank Moody onCalifornication. Soon, we'll see him as the lead in the Charles Manson-themed mini-series Aquarius, premiering May 28.

But now, it's time to let David Duchovny the singer-songwriter into your life.

“I had to marry a girl named Melissa to dedicate it to her. Didn't work out that way.”

David Duchovny was already an established actor when he first picked up the guitar, starting out by learning how to play the Flaming Lips' "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots." The X-Files and Californication star had long been writing poetry, though, and within a few years he completed enough demos to begin serious work on a 12-song LP.

Listen: David Duchovny Song 'When The Time Comes'

About five years ago, actor David Duchovny decided to take up the guitar, as he describes it, just for amusement. But that amusement eventually gave way to full songs that comprise his debut album “Hell or Highwater.” “I felt like I always had words and was always interested in lyrics,” he says. “I wondered how simple they seemed and how profound they became once music was added to them.”

Premiering on Speakeasy is “When the Time Comes,” a song that might resonate with “X-Files” fans, if they’re willing to read into how he describes it. “I like this idea that everything has already occurred – we’re living in this circular time,” he says. “The time has already come – it’s already come and gone. It’s an almost apocalyptic, bleak, but hopeful song.”

It's unclear what's more surprising: David Duchovny coming out with a folksy album of Jeff Tweedy-indebted guitar jams, Hell or Highwater, or that the decorated X Files and Californication actor got his start playing the recorder -- "a big rock and roll instrument if you're into Jethro Tull," he tells Billboard. But Duchovny has been harboring musical aspirations since he first picked up a guitar four years ago. "I wanted to become decent enough to play songs to amuse myself," he says.

Eventually, he realized the three-chord rock-and-roll structures of classics like Elton John's “Tiny Dancer” and Robbie Robertson's “Broken Arrow” weren't that hard to write. "I thought, 'I can throw some chords together,'" he says. "A lot of songwriters say words are the hardest part, but it was the opposite for me."

Buzzfeed Interview: How David Duchovny’s Love Of Television Brought Him Back To X-Files

The 54-year-old Aquarius star talks to BuzzFeed News about the ever-evolving state of network television and how the upcoming X-Files reboot plays into it.

When The X-Files ended in 2002, David Duchovny wanted to choose a role that was 180 degrees away from FBI Agent Fox Mulder, the beloved character he’d played on Fox’s sci-fi drama for nine seasons. “When I finished X Files, I probably thought, I don’t want to do that anymore,” he admitted to BuzzFeed News during a party for his upcoming NBC series Aquarius at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles this week.

Boston Herald Interview: David Duchovny to perform ‘Hell’ of a show

If David Duchovny’s debut album, “Hell or Highwater,” failed artistically and commercially, he’d have an excuse: not enough time to make it great between writing debut novel “Holy Cow,” which came out in February, and filming NBC’s upcoming Charles Manson miniseries “Aquarius.”

But artistically, “Hell or Highwater,” out May 12, isn’t a failure. It’s actually pretty darn good. Not good for a vanity project, but a legitimately fun and rewarding listen.
