Born and raised in New York City, DAVID DUCHOVNY (Brian Burke) 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 Ph.D. 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,” Duchovny was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, and was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his highly acclaimed (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 Awards and a TV Critic's Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. The press and the public agree that Duchovny brings a fierce intellect, a quiet intensity and an acerbic wit to his roles on both the small screen and the silver screen.

Since "The X-Files” debuted, millions and millions of self-proclaimed "XPhiles” 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 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” entitled "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 costarred 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 and directed by Ivan Reitman, the romantic-comedy "Return to Me” opposite Minnie Driver and directed by Bonnie Hunt, "The X-Files” movie directed by Rob Bowman, and the Touchstone film "Playing God” with Timothy Hutton and Angelina Jolie, an action thriller directed by Andy Wilson. Duchovny appeared in Ben Stiller's "Zoolander” in a hilarious, 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 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.

In 2002, he starred in the Miramax ensemble comedy "Full Frontal,” for director Steven Soderbergh and co-starring Julia Roberts, George Clooney and David Hyde Pierce. Duchovny 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 and for which he was nominated for a 2003 Emmy. Following that, he made a memorable appearance on "Sex and the City” as an
