Born and raised in New York City, DAVID DUCHOVNY (Jeff) attended Princeton University (where he played one season as shooting guard on the school's basketball team), received his masters degree in English literature from Yale, and was on the road to earning his PhD when he caught the acting bug.

Subsequently, Duchovny emerged to become one of the most highly acclaimed actors in Hollywood. The star of Fox Television's monster hit The X Files, he was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series; he was also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his highly acclaimed (and some say) risqué appearances on The Larry Sanders Show. In January 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 and a TV Critics Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. The press and the public both agree that Duchovny brings a fierce intellect, a quiet intensity and an acerbic wit to his roles on both the small and the silver screen.

Since The X Files debuted, millions and millions of self-proclaimed "X-Philes” spent their Sunday nights wide-eyed in anticipation as their hero, the brilliant and sullen FBI Agent Fox Mulder (Duchovny), explored cases deemed unbelievable or unsolvable by the Bureau. Duchovny's remarkable performance on The X Files earned him the title of "Zeitgeist Icon” by Laura Jacobs in The New Republic and "the first Internet sex symbol with hair” by Maureen Dowd in The New York Times.

Duchovny added the role of director to his already extensive list of accomplishments when he wrote, directed and starred in two critically acclaimed episodes of The X Files: "The Unnatural,” which starred Jessie Martin; and "Hollywood A.D.,” starring Garry Shandling and actress Téa Leoni.

Duchovny's passion for renegade films has brought him critical acclaim for his performances in the feature films Kalifornia, in which he co-starred with Brad Pitt and Juliette Lewis; The Rapture, the controversial film directed by Michael Tolkin in which Duchovny starred opposite Mimi Rogers; and Julia Has Two Lovers, in which he turned in a much heralded performance as a telephone hustler. Duchovny played Roland "Rollie” Totheroh, Charlie Chaplin's longtime confidante and cameraman, in the Sir Richard Attenborough-directed Chaplin, which starred Robert Downey, Jr., in the title role; and starred in the smash hit Beethoven, opposite Charles Grodin, as the evil yuppie determined to take over Grodin's company.

His recent feature credits include the action comedy Evolution, opposite Julianne Moore, directed by Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters); the romantic comedy Return to Me, opposite Minnie Driver, directed by Bonnie Hunt; The X Files movie, directed by Rob Bowman; the action thriller Playing God, with Timothy Hutton and Angelina Jolie, directed by Andy Wilson (winner of a Cable Ace Award for Cracker). Recently, Duchovny appeared in Ben Stiller's film Zoolander (a hilariously funny unbilled cameo performance).

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

He was last seen on the big screen in 2002's Miramax ensemble comedy Full Frontal for director Steven Soderbergh, co-starring Julia Roberts, George Clooney and David Hyde Pierce. David has made brief returns to television, first appearing in good friend Bonnie Hunt's show, Life with Bonnie, in which he guest-starred as over-the-top weatherman Johnny Volcano, for which he was nominated for an Emmy in 2003. Following that, he made a memorable appearance on Sex and t
