DAVID DUCHOVNY (Gus) has emerged as one of the most highly acclaimed actors in Hollywood. The star of Fox Television's hit "The X-Files," he has been nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Drama and he received a nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his appearance on "The Larry Sanders Show." In 1997, Duchovny won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. He has been nominated for a total of three Golden Globes, three Screen Actors Guild Awards and a TV Critic's Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series.

Duchovny added the role of director to his already extensive list of accomplishments when he wrote, directed and starred in "The Unnatural" and "Hollywood A.D.," two critically acclaimed episodes of "The X-Files."

His feature credits include the action-comedy "Evolution," opposite Julianne Moore, directed by Ivan Reitman, the romantic comedy "Return to Me," opposite Minnie Driver, "The X-Files" movie, directed by Rob Bowman and the action-thriller "Playing God," directed by Andy Wilson, opposite Angelina Jolie.

He also played Charlie Chaplin's longtime confidante and cameraman Roland Totheroh in Sir Richard Attenborough's "Chaplin," which starred Robert Downey, Jr., in the title role and starred in "Beethoven," opposite Charles Grodin.

Most recently, Duchovny appeared in an unbilled cameo performance in Ben Stiller's acclaimed comedy, "Zoolander."

Duchovny's passion for renegade films has brought him critical acclaim for his performances in "Kalifornia," in which he co-starred with Brad Pitt and Juliette Lewis; "The Rapture," directed by Michael Tolkin in which he starred opposite Mimi Rogers and "Julia Has Two Lovers," in which he turned in a much-heralded performance as a telephone hustler.

Still recognized for his role as the transvestite detective in David Lynch's breakthrough television series, "Twin Peaks," Duchovny has also spent four seasons as the narrator of Zalman King's erotic anthology series "Red Shoes Diaries," which began as a feature length telefilm for Showtime.

On stage, Duchovny has appeared in such plays as "The Copulating Machine of Venice, California" and "Green Cockatoo."

Born and raised in New York City, Duchovny attended Princeton University and received his MA in English Literature from Yale. He was on the road to earning his Ph.D. when he caught the acting bug.

Duchovny is about to start filming "My Dark Places," playing the lead role of author James Ellroy.
