An Evening with David Duchovny
Monday, April 28, 2014
The Center for Communication presents two-time Golden Globe Winner, David Duchovny — known for portraying colorful characters who are, above all, memorable. Whether on film, TV, or the stage, he has a knack for conveying inner truths and complexities behind his roles. Duchovny’s star turn as Fox Mulder on The X Files helped to make it the longest running science-fiction series in U.S. history. And as Showtime’s hit series Californication launches its 7th (and final) season, the hard-drinking, womanizing novelist Hank Moody will be laid to rest. Find out what he’s up to next.
David Duchovny was born and raised in New York City. He was on the road to earning his Ph.D. in English Literature when, to his family’s eternal disappointment, he began acting. Subsequently, Duchovny emerged to become one of the most highly acclaimed actors in Hollywood. Duchovny recently starred in the films LOUDER THAN WORDS directed by Anthony Fabian and PHANTOM directed by Todd Robinson. He recently completed production on the seventh season of Showtime’s hit “Californication” for which he won the Golden Globe in 2008 for Best Actor in a Comedy Series. From 1993-2002, Duchovny starred in Fox’s Television’s monster hit “The X-Files,” which earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series and three Emmy nominations for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series. Duchovny also has written and directed multiple episodes of tv and one film, HOUSE OF D. He bats right and throws right.
