The actor warms to movie romance for his friend, director Bart Freundlich
Actor David Duchovny’s new movie, “Trust the Man,” opening Friday, revolves around friendship, so it’s appropriate that he and writer-director Bart Freundlich were practically set up on a sort-of “date” years ago by mutual pals who said they would get along.
“Our first date was actually playing basketball at Collegiate School,” jokes Freundlich about Duchovny, when the two are interviewed separately. “We went back and played with David’s old high school coach against the team at Collegiate [the Upper West Side prep school Duchovny attended]. David and I went and we brought a couple of friends. We were huffing and puffing after a while. I think we won. We used our smarts.”
