Duchovny Files his TV past

NEW YORK

One wonders if an agent calling up an actor has ever said, ? ? S The good news is that you have a job on a TV series and the network expects it to run for years. The bad news is that after it? ? !” s over you will probably never work again.? ? ? David Duchovny is still working, but in a hotel room in New York he admits that at the end of The X-Files in 2002 he began to think about making funny movies so he could move as far as possible from his character in that series, Fox Mulder.

? ? S I wanted to do comedies only because comedy seemed to be antithetical to The X-Files. First I thought, ? ? ? I will make people forget that,? ? !” but then I thought, ? ? ? How could they forget that? It was a decade. You don? ? !” t forget a decade.? ? !” I can? ? !” t think of anything bigger in terms of television. People talk about Star Trek, but it was only on for three years and then created as nostalgia on reruns. At some point I realized that it is what it is, and it is probably unlikely that I will ever do anything as big as that, because I don? ? !” t think that there can be anything as culturally pervasive as the show or that character. Certainly not a movie character, because this was part of the culture. There is nothing that I can think of that would approach that kind of magnitude. So at some point I started choosing things because I liked them or they challenged me.? ? ?

Duchovny? ? !” s latest choice, Trust the Man, is a romantic comedy about two couples who are struggling through their relationships. (It opens in Vancouver on Friday [September 1].) He plays a director of commercials who is taking time off to be with his children. Julianne Moore is his actor wife, Billy Crudup plays her brother and his best friend, and Maggie Gyllenhaal plays Crudup? ? !” s girlfriend. The movie is directed by Bart Freund?lich, who happens to be married to Moore. Crudup and Duchovny are his best friends. Duchovny says that although it sounds like a great way to make a movie, having pals on a set can have its drawbacks.? ? S I had a lot of friends on this set, but one thing about doing The X-Files for so many years is that they become friends. So I guess I was used to that experience as well. When you do a movie with your friends, you don? ? !” t want to disappoint them, because disappointing them has repercussions. If you are working with people you don? ? !” t know that well and it doesn? ? !” t work out, you can think ? ? ? Well, maybe I won? ? !” t see them so often and when I do I will say, ? ? S I am sorry that I fucked up your movie.? ? ??? ? !” But you can? ? !” t do that with friends. On the one hand, you think it would be much more casual and relaxed, but on the other hand, you are constantly thinking, ? ? ? I don? ? !” t want to screw up this movie.? ? !” ?? ? ?
