X-Files Star to Make a Come Back

Filed under
Movies

He may forever be Mulder from "The X-Files" for some, but David Duchovny has moved on. After starring in such movies as "Connie and Carla" and "Full Frontal," the 45-year-old Duchovny took some time to write a screenplay and direct -- as well as taking a small but pivotal role in "House of D," his feature directorial debut.

Though not strictly autobiographical, "House of D" is set in Duchovny's hometown, New York City, and touches upon elements of his youth. The film also stars Robin Williams, Duchovny's wife, Tea Leoni, and Erykah Badu and is, in the words of co-star Williams, an "urban fairy tale." Duchovny visited Seattle last month to talk about the film, which opens locally tomorrow, and his potential new career path.

Full Interview here.

In addition, David Duchovny has been cast as the male lead in The Secret, which is based on the Japanese movie Himitsu.

The Hollywood Reporter says French film star Vincent Perez will direct with Luc Besson and Virginie Silla producing.

Duchovny will join Lili Taylor (who plays his wife) and Olivia J. Thirlby who has been cast the couples' daughter.

Himitsu was based on a novel by Japanese author Keigo Higashino and follows a man whose life changes after the bus carrying his wife and daughter goes over a cliff. His wife dies but his daughter survives only to be possessed by the dead wife.

Filming will take place in Montreal.

Living The Linux Laptop Lifestyle

Another great advantage of open source software: you can run it off of a flash drive before installing it. And I have to admit that I loved Linux Lite's out-of-the-box feel, so much so that I reconsidered installing my number two selection: LXLE, which is designed for underpowered older machines. According to a label on the bottom of my Toughbook, this pre-Linux laptop was decommissioned in 2005, making it well over ten years old. And so I replaced the RAM, installed Linux Lite, and after a short period, I was back to living a Linux laptop lifestyle while waiting for my charger. Read more
