David Duchovny: My Russian Beer Commercial Wasn't Political
David Duchovny is feeling the heat after appearing in a Russian beer commercial.

In the commercial Duchovny, whose father's father is from Kiev, wonders what life would be like if he was born in the country. He is shown in several roles, including astronaut and ballet director, in the country. At one point he auditions for a film in Russian.

"This is the country where I was born and raised. But there is another country, where I got my family name from. And sometimes I wonder: What if things turned out differently? What if I were Russian?" He asks in the spot for Siberian Crown.

Hank Is A 'Disasterpiece' in Californication

January 14th, 2013 11:23am EST
The hit Showtime series, Californication is back for its sixth season with an amazing lineup of guest stars (like Marilyn Manson) and more comedic dark struggles for Hank Moody (played by Golden Globe winner David Duchovny), whom we have unfortunately grown to love.

The first episode begins when Hank wakes up in the hospital after his ex, Carrie, unsuccessfully tried to kill him with a deadly ‘you broke my heart, you son-of-a b&*$%’ cocktail. Sadly, she also had a taste of her own medicine and will not be waking up ever again from her booze induced ride on the crazy train. Only in his drea...

Ashlee Simpson
Uma Thurman and her French financier boyfriend Arpad Busson revealed the name of their newborn baby girl this week, and the tot's title is a mouthful.

Not content with the typical first/middle/last -- or in this case hyphenated last -- name, the little girl surely has a challenging future ahead of her when it comes to filling out any types of forms.

The couple named their three-month-old Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson. Where they got her nickname, "Luna," from is a mystery; but their rep says each name has a special reason and meaning.

David Duchovny Says He Would 'Love' To Do Another 'X Files' Movie

August 10th, 2012 3:18pm EDT
David Duchovny
David Duchovny is urging studio bosses to consider reviving the The X Files movie franchise because he wants to see the American film industry invest more money in "homegrown" projects.

With all the temptations in Hollywood, it's not unusual for someone in a committed relationship to stray. In fact, these days it seems quite common for stars to cheat.

Sometimes actors begin their affairs while on the film set far from home. Other times they're marriages are failing, and they find new partners to make them happy.

Whatever the reason, people cheat. And if you happen to be famous, the world often hears about it.

Sandra Bullock took a chance when she married Jesse James. His first wife was a porn star, after all. Sandra and Jesse wed in 2005 and James' infidelity was expos...

Many actors aspire to direct; great directors like Ron Howard and Jon Favreau were actors first. That's the same career path that Derek Magyar is on. Still a working actor, he directed and produced the film Flying Lessons, which arrives in select theaters today.

The film has an intriguing cast - near-legend Hal Holbrook, Academy Award winner Christine Lahti, Cary Elwes (Glory, The Princess Bride, The X-Files), and Maggie Grace (Lost, Taken) at the top - that brings to life the story of Sophie (Grace)'s return home to the messy relationships of her past.

Now that Californication's Hank Moody has been convicted of statutory rape, it's time for him to face the music.

Sunday's season finale (9/8c on Showtime) finds Hank (David Duchovny) awaiting his sentencing, and the outcome floors him. But you shouldn't necessarily expect the show's next season to resemble Oz.

With Hank's secret revealed, how much Californication is left?

'Californication' Season 4 Advance Review

January 8th, 2011 7:08pm EST
My Showtime preview concludes today with a look at season four of Californication, which debuts tomorrow on the premium network along with Episodes and Shameless.

A friend of mine once told me that she thought David Duchovny was a one-trick pony. I had to agree with her; I loved him in his now-iconic role as Special Agent Fox Mulder on The X-Files, but then I saw the absolutely dreadful Evolution and couldn't believe I was watching the same actor. Even in the second X-Files feature, he seemed at times to be simply going through the motions. To me, his performance here feels like a versi...

What Can We Expect To See In Season 4 Of 'Californication'?

January 6th, 2011 10:29am EST
Californication Season 4
So, “Californication” is returning soon, and everyone’s favorite blind-in-one-eye leading man David Duchovny reprises his role as the perpetually creatively-blocked novelist Hank Moody. And I bet you real money he’s going to be having sex with people this season. Lots of sex. That he’ll feel bad about later.

Actually, that’s the entirety of “Californication.” Hank Moody has sex, feels bad about it later, then does it again. But gosh if he isn’t just so darn loveable.

I know the show is about that cycle. I know the show is supposed to be about how Hank Moody is a sex addict, and how he’s t...

Former TV Stars We'd Like To See Back On The Boob Tube

August 31st, 2010 8:06am EDT
JENNIFER ANISTON: Once the sole reason many viewers tuned into "Friends" during the show's heyday in the 90s, Jen made boys swoon and girls run to the salons to get the most sought-after do of the decade, The Rachel. While Aniston has enjoyed some success with movies such as “The Good Girl” and “Along Came Polly”, we like her best on the tube portraying a ditzy, spontaneous character with a rosy romantic outlook.


Oh, George. Why did you go ahead and become such a movie star? Never mind Dr. Dreamy and McSteamy. You will always be our favorite TV doc. Who can forget “ER”? ...

David Duchovny
David Duchovny jokes about men he finds attractive:

"Woody Allen is one in a long list of men I might go gay for. Gary Shandling is someone I've publicly gone gay for, for jokes. Oh and anybody in the 'Twilight' movies. I don't know any of their names, but all of them. The wolves, vampires - they're all fantastic."

Earlier this month the actor confessed he didn't want to kiss Demi Moore on the set of their film "The Joneses." The former "X-Files" star protested when it came time for the couple to lock lips because she was very sick. He explains, "She had a horrible cold. I said, 'I do ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies- 'The Losers,' 'The Back-Up Plan,' & More

April 19th, 2010 9:12am EDT
The backup Plan
I saw three movies that opened theaters last week, each of which I enjoyed in a different way. If you haven’t checked it out yet, definitely take a peek at my review of “Kick-Ass” which received my highest praise. Since this week is rather light at the box office, go see “Kick-Ass” if you have not already.

The sports drama “The Perfect Game” about a Mexican baseball team that becomes the first non-American team to compete in the Little League World Series is quite charming. It comes off as a mixture of “The Mighty Ducks,” “The Bad News Bears,” and “Angels in the Outfield.” While it doe...

'The Joneses' Review: Demi Moore& David Duchovny Give Us A Reason To Go To the Movies This Weekend

Review: The Joneses
This morning you probably got ready to go to work by putting on your work clothes, eating breakfast, grabbing your purse or your wallet, and maybe driving yourself into the office. After work today you’ll probably go home, change into your “going out” clothes, call your friends, and head out to blow off some steam. What if someone told you that everything you did this morning from picking out your clothes, to making your breakfast, to choosing where you’re going wasn’t entirely your choice? What if everything you decided to buy was instead a product of a new kind of marketing technique cal...

David Duchovny refused to kiss Demi Moore on the set of the pair's new movie "The Joneses" because the Hollywood beauty had a raging cold.

The former "X-Files" star protested when it came time for the couple to lock lips. He explains, "She had a horrible cold. I said, 'I do not want to kiss this woman!'"

But his complaining got him nowhere and he eventually agreed to risk his health for the sake of the film.

He adds, "I got sick too... She (Moore) owes me!"

Remote Control Battle: TV Both Men And Women May Enjoy Together

November 16th, 2009 9:00pm EST
Remote Control Battle
A Woman's Perspective: Remember when sitcoms used to make jokes about how men and women watch television differently? The sloppy, somewhat aloof husband character would always be zooming through the channels, flicking the remote faster than his perky, pretty, younger wife could keep up. She'd then snatch the remote and pause on each channel achingly slowly, narrating not only what was occurring in the scene on screen but also what she hoped or thought would occur next.

Not only did men and women watch differently, though, what they watched was always assumed to be different. Men had the...

Best Film & TV About Alien Invasions

August 17th, 2009 2:39pm EDT
For centuries human beings have considered the world beyond Earth and wondered if there was life outside of what we know. There have been essays, books, movies, television, and plenty of conspiracy theories about the existence of aliens or extraterrestrial life.

In the past 50 years or so pop culture has been fascinated by this idea and what would happen if the alien nation found its way to our Earth. Would they be like Star Trek, some hostile and some friendly to humankind? Or would they be like Aliens and plan to tear the flesh off our bones?
