In just over a months time The X-Files returns to its rightful place - on the small screen where it began. The six episode revival mini-series will see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their world famous roles as FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.

Another regular of the cast set to return is Mitch Pileggi, who will be reprising his role as FBI Assistant Direct Walter Skinner. Speaking to THR the American actor, whom recently appeared in a recurring role in Supernatural, spoke of his characters return...

“My thought was, ‘I wonder if they’re going to call?’ Chris Carter didn’t tell me I was in the second movie until halfway through shooting it; they’re shooting the movie, and Chris is like, ‘You’re in the movie.’ And I was like, [Joking] ‘Oh, really? Thanks for the info.'”

“I was ready to do whatever they wanted me to do. It’s a great character, a great show, and the excitement about it coming back is palpable. It’s a huge part of my life. And it’s a huge part of my career.”

“I told Chris, ‘I owe a huge part of my career to you, and to Wes Craven. Those two people are the most instrumental people in any success I’ve had. So it’s very important to me.”

“Them being back in the picture, he has this connection with them, and it’s a very important connection; he’s attached to them. And he’s also telling Mulder, there’s shit going on out there, and you need to do something about it. Things, perhaps, I don’t know how to do — paths you know how to follow that I don’t. And methods you use that I don’t. It’s just the nature of who Mulder is — Skinner says, ‘You need to figure this shit out.'”
