David Duchovny David Duchovny (Agent Fox Mulder)
From the hallowed halls of Yale University, where he earned a master's degree in English Literature and was in pursuit of a PhD, David Duchovny has emerged to become one of the most highly acclaimed actors in Hollywood.

For his work on The X-Files, Duchovny has won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series (for a total of three nominations), and has been nominated twice for an Emmy Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series and also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his appearance on The Larry Sanders Show. He has been nominated three times for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama Series and nominated for a Television Critics Association Award for Best Dramatic Performance of the Year.

Since The X-Files debuted in 1993, millions of self-proclaimed "X-Philes" have spent their Sunday nights in anticipation as the brilliant and sullen FBI Agent Fox Mulder has investigated, with his partner Agent Dana Scully, cases deemed unbelievable or unsolvable by the Bureau. Duchovny's remarkable performance in The X-Files has 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 has written and directed The X-Files episodes "The Unnatural," with guest star Jesse L. Martin, and "Hollywood A.D.," with guest stars Tea Leoni and Garry Shandling.

In addition to The X-Files, Duchovny starred in the feature film Full Frontal, preceded by Zoolander and Evolution, with Julianne Moore and Orlando Jones. He also appeared in Return to Me, opposite Minnie Driver. His other feature film credits include The X-Files: Fight the Future, Playing God, Kalifornia, The Rapture, Julia Has Two Lovers, Chaplin and Beethoven. Duchovny is currently in production on the movie version of My Dark Places, based on the memoir of author James Ellroy, whom Duchovny portrays in the film.

Still recognized for his role as Dennis/Denise, the transvestite detective in the television series Twin Peaks, Duchovny also spent four seasons as the impassioned narrator of the anthology series Red Shoe Diaries. On stage, Duchovny has appeared in such plays as The Copulating Machine of Venice, California and Green Cockatoo. He made his film debut in Working Girl (1986).

Born and raised in New York City, Duchovny attended Princeton University (where he played one season as shooting guard on the school's basketball team) before earning his master's degree from Yale. Duchovny is married to actress Tea Leoni.
