Anyone attending the official opening of David Duchovny’s play The Break of Noon got a special treat: Gillian Anderson came to see David perform (photo from Broadway.com). Showbiz 411 reports that Duchovny actually looked shocked to see Gillian even though she told him that she would be there for opening night.
Tea Leoni and other family members, Ben Stiller, Eric Bogosian, and other stars were in attendance in the small theater, as well as critics and reporters. The play received mixed reviews.
Roger Friedman wrote, “At one point, Amanda Peet’s character–playing John’s ex wife–demands from him, ‘I want the truth.’ It sounded like a line from the X Files. Anderson [said she got] a good laugh when she heard it.” (Photo above from http://www.mitchpileggi.net/)
XFilesNews reports that a Twitter made by a special effects person working at the play tweeted this, “Had a long conversation with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson tonight. Believe…”
Obviously this in in reference to the hoped-for announcement of an XFiles 3 movie. Maybe we wi’ll all get a nice holiday surprise!
In an interview with France’s TVMag, Duchovny was asked, ”Will there be soon an XF 3?”
Duchovny responded, “It is being written. It looks just ahead for Fox, a little disappointed by the relatively poor reception of the second component. The error comes, I believe that the authors had strayed too far from the very roots of the series. Moreover, the film was released in summer. The third will be much closer to what the public expects, with government conspiracies, etc.” (translation from Google Translate).
Thanks to “Agent Extremis” for the heads up about the interview.
