‘The X-Files’ Star David Duchovny Still Hopes To Bring Back Fox Mulder

“The X-Files: I Want To Believe” hit theaters in 2008, the latest attempt to bring back Chris Carter’s classic science fiction TV series. It wasn’t a box office smash, but Carter — who has previously indicated that he’d do a third movie if the second did well enough to warrant it — later confirmed that “I Want To Believe” performed well enough to “theoretically” allow for a sequel.

MTV’s Larry Carroll spoke with David Duchovny — aka Fox Mulder — last week at the press junket for this week’s “The Joneses,” which he stars in. The actor didn’t have much to say about “X-Files 3,” but he’d “love” to come back for more. He also made some interesting comments about how it feels knowing “The X-Files” inspired some to go into law enforcement.
