David Duchovny to star in new Showtime series
Former TV stars don't fade away, they just get new gigs on hip new shows on cable.
David Duchovny, Agent Fox Mulder of X-Files fame, has just signed on to star in a new comedy for Showtime. He'll play a writer named Hank Moody who is divorced with a 16 year-old daughter. He's not only still in love with his ex-girlfriend, played by Natasha McElhone of Solaris), but he has a lot of addictions too. The show will premiere this summer and be paired with another quirky show, Weeds. There's no title yet, though the pilot was titled Californication.
This might be the series that finally makes me get Showtime. Oh, this and This American Life.
