Last night on Letterman, David Duchovny revealed two returning actors in Fox’s six-episode X-Files revival.
Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis will both come back and reprise their characters, although one is a surprise. We knew Skinner would return even before the official announcement of the revival, as his name leaked a couple days ahead of time via a UK television site.
William B. Davis as the Cigarette-Smoking Man is a big surprise…as his character died in the series finale. And it was a pretty fiery death that didn’t leave much room for him to dodge the flames.
How they’ll resurrect him will be interesting, or it could be a flashback. But if they do bring him back to life, that means they could also resurrect the Lone Gunmen!
