Duchovny brings a fierce intellect, a quiet intensity and an acerbic wit to his roles on both the small screen and the silver screen. From 1993 to 2002, millions of self-proclaimed X-philes spent their Sunday nights in wide-eyed anticipation as their hero, the brilliant and sullen FBI agent Fox Mulder (Duchovny), explored cases deemed unbelievable or unsolvable by the Bureau. His remarkable performance earned him the title of Zeitgeist Icon by Laura Jacobs in 'The New Republic' and the first Internet sex symbol with hair by Maureen Dowd in 'The New York Times.'
Duchovny added the role of director to his already extensive list of accomplishments when he wrote, directed and starred in two critically acclaimed episodes of The X-Files and Hollywood A.D., starring Garry Shandling and Téa Leoni. He made his feature directorial debut with House Of D, which he also wrote and appeared in.
This fall, Duchovny can be seen opposite Halle Berry and Benicio del Toro in the film, Things We Lost In The Fire. He was recently seen in the Jake Kasdan comedy The TV Set and Trust The Man, opposite Julianne Moore. He recently completed filming on the indie film The Secret directed by Vincent Perez and produced by Luc Besson.
Other film credits include Evolution, Connie And Carla Do L.A., Return To Me, The X-Files movie, Playing God, Zoolander, Kalifornia, The Rapture, Julia Has Two Lovers, Chaplin, Beethoven and Full Frontal.
David Duchovny made a brief return to television in good friend Bonnie Hunt's show, Life With Bonnie, and his two performances earned him an Emmy nomination in the category of 'Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.'
On stage, Duchovny has appeared in such plays as The Copulating Machine Of Venice, California and Green Cockatoo.
