Well, shit: Gillian Anderson says she's done with American Gods, too

Like an entire message board’s worth of ’90s internet forum members, Gillian Anderson just won’t stop breaking our hearts. Earlier this week, Anderson made it clear—in no uncertain terms—that she’s done with Fox’s X-Files reboot, and that the show’s eleventh season will be her last outing as stalwart FBI agent Dana…

Chris Carter says there's no way he'd do more X-Files without Gillian Anderson

Earlier this week, X-Files star Gillian Anderson reiterated a point she’s been making for some time now, stating in no uncertain turns that the show’s 11th season—its seconds since being resurrected from the dead last year—would be her final turn as beloved FBI agent Dana Scully. Now, a new Collider interview has…

Gillian Anderson also thinks it’s ridiculous that The X-Files’ writing staff is all male

Now that Carrie Fisher has drowned in moonlight, Gillian Anderson is pop culture’s preeminent patron saint of not giving a fuck. (Google “Gillian Anderson middle finger” or “Scully eye roll” sometime, if you haven’t already. It’s fun.) And Anderson, having dug around in her purse for a while and found nary a fuck in…

American Gods’ riddle: What’s black and white and off-kilter all over?

“Let me tell you a story: Once upon a time, a man got fucked. Now, how is that for a story? Because that’s the story of black people in America.” This is the introductory speech of Anansi (Orlando Jones), or Mr. Nancy, as he’ll come to be known. It’s also how American Gods turns the lynching imagery of its premiere…

The X-Files cast is reuniting for a new audiobook

Fox’s X-Files revival last year was pretty disappointing—save for an appearance from the Were-Monster—but it’s hard to deny that it’s still fun to see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their roles as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Hopefully it’s just as fun to hear them reprise those roles, because Audible…

Glacial pacing and stilted animation drag down Ronja, The Robber’s Daughter

Japan’s Studio Ghibli is internationally renowned for its beautiful, emotional animated projects, but its first venture into the realm of serialized television fails to live up to the studio’s exemplary reputation. Ronja, The Robber’s Daughter is a 26-episode anime series based on the children’s novel of the same name…

The Fall’s 3rd season begins with more style than substance

The season-two finale of The Fall contained a wonder of television: a 20-minute scene of detective superintendent Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) interrogating Paul Spector, the Belfast Strangler (Jamie Dornan, who’s quite a good actor when he doesn’t have to put on an American accent), finally in police custody. It…

Amazon orders kids’ series from nerd favorites Studio Ghibli and Gillian Anderson

Amazon announced today that it has ordered a 26-part kids series from Studio Ghibli featuring narration from one Dana Scully—excuse us, Gillian Anderson. The show, Ronja The Robber’s Daughter, is directed by Gorō Miyazaki, the son of acclaimed filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, and adapted from a Swedish book by Pippi…

Gillian Anderson says she’d also like to be James Bond

Nearly every actor in the world (especially if they’re British) loves to be asked if they’d be willing to play James Bond. It doesn’t even have to be a formal interview, either. If a fan runs up to a celebrity on the street and asks if they’d like to star in a Bond movie, very few people in the history of acting would…

Chris Carter says The X-Files will be back, “almost without a doubt”

First, the folks at Fox said there are probably more X-Files episodes out there. Now X-Files creator Chris Carter has said in an interview with the New York Times that there are definitely more episodes out there. “I can tell you, almost without a doubt, we will come back,” Carter said. Again, that’s not all that…

According to Fox, more episodes of The X-Files may be out there

It seems like The X-Files only just reentered our lives, but the revival is already coming to an end. The finale, “My Struggle II,” will air on February 22. But fear not, truthers! Fox is already talking about the possibility of more episodes, because the money is out there. According to Variety, there are no official…

Gillian Anderson joins Harrison Ford’s Official Secrets, a movie that’s still called that

According to Variety, Gillian Anderson is in negotiations to join the cast of Official Secrets, the Harrison Ford-starring political thriller that is somehow not a movie that already came out 20 years ago, despite the fact that it stars Harrison Ford and is called Official Secrets. It can’t have come out 20 years ago,…
