Ten years after the hit television series made it to the big screen, FBI agents Mulder and Scully are back in "The X-files: I Want to Believe." David Duchovny felt a little strange joining up with Gillian Anderson in a new paranormal thriller. But, one thing hasn't changed, David admits he still believe in aliens. He told me::
"It doesn't really make sense that this would be the only planet with life. That just doesn't make sense to me. And, yet, if we have been contacted by aliens, I don't believe that anybody could have kept that a secret in any way. I don't believe in a conspiracy to hide the existence of extraterrestrial life. I don't know why it would be of such a premium to hide it, and I don't know of anybody competent enough to keep such a great secret."
An even greater secret is where the romantic relationship between Mulder and Scully will end up. David just grins. He isn't telling.
Minnie Driver has been getting more attention for her pregnancy than her acting career. She's expecting her first child in August and she won't reveal the father's name. Minnie just wants to keep the guy out of the media spotlight. But, she will reveal she can't wait to be a mom. Driver says,:
"I'm surprised it's taken this long, to tell you the truth. When I was much younger, I never envisioned it -- me being in my mid-30's when I had a kid. I thought I would be much younger. So I'm just grateful it's happening. I'm not going to go back to work until January. So it's full mommy time all through the fall and the early winter. And, then, I don't know. I'm a working girl. My baby will be on the set with me. And it will be fine. This baby knows that. This baby is up for it."
You can still see Minnie on the big screen in a stunning performance in "Take." She plays a mom whose young son is killed during the robbery of a supermarket.
JOHN C. REILLY
After going for laughs in "Talladega Nights," Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly couldn't wait to get back together. This time they really get raunchy in "Step Brothers" playing a pair of 40-something guys still living with their parents. Reilly admits it gave him a feeling of deja vu`::
"My dad had an apartment. My parents separated when I was older. And my dad had an apartment on the other side of the city. And I kind of just moved into his apartment when he was away for one weekend. So I kind of moved out of my childhood home, but then I eventually got my own apartment toward the end of college. I have little kids right now. And I dread the day when they leave the house. You know, maybe there will come a time where I'll get tired of it and I won't want them around. But I really -- I depend on them for company."
While Reilly and Ferrell push the envelope of down and dirty comedy, Mary Steenburgen gets in on the act as Will's mom. Sweet Mary drops a few shocking four-letter words.
