DAVID DUCHOVNY (Fox Mulder) was born and raised in New York City. He 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. He is currently starring in Showtime's hit Californication, for which he won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy Series. Not only does he star in the show, he also serves as one of the show's executive producers. Duchovny recently began filming the second season of Californication.

From 1993-2002, Duchovny starred in Fox Television's monster hit The X Files, which earned him a nomination for an Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series. He was 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. Additionally, 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 "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, titled "The Unnatural,” which starred Jesse L. Martin, and "Hollywood A.D.,” starring Garry Shandling and Tea 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 controversial film The Rapture, 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, with 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, of Ghostbuster fame, the romantic-comedy Return To Me, opposite Minnie Driver, directed by Bonnie Hunt, The X Files: Fight The Future, directed by Rob Bowman, and the Touchstone film, Playing God, with Timothy Hutton and Angelina Jolie, an action thriller, directed by Andy Wilson (winner of a Cable Ace Award for Cracker). 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 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,
