The new "X-Files" movie won't just be a two-actor showcase for David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. Full Story

It seems unlikely they'd be playing FBI colleagues of Mulder and Scully since the final episode ended with them disbanded from the FBI and on the run. My guess is they're residents of whatever small town Mulder and Scully now live in, probably under aliases.

Everything we currently know about the plot indicates that it resumes after the series ended, rather than in between seasons like the previous film.

Billy Connolly? Ok, that I'll allow. But Amanda Peet? Seriously?

Why oh why are they having a RAPPER play an FBI agent? Is anyone else tired of rappers(and many singers in general)being confused with REAL actors?

I thought they got it right with Garry Shandling and Téa Leoni. Maybe she's got her hands full with kids and a hubby who's into Californication.

These are interesting casting choices, but I think it'll work. The script has already been written and is pretty much set in stone because of the writers strike, which means these actors were cast to fit characters that have already been written, it isn't as though the characters were created just for these actors (true stunt casting)...so whoever cast these actors for the role must have believed they can pull off the roles.

Oh, I am sooo excited. I just can't wait. Isn't it the best news ever that Amanda Peet and Billy Connolly will be in it? And Xzibit? He'll bring such warmth and depth to the movie. A great choice. But what about Adam Sandler? I heard that he was going to be some sort of villian? Wouldn't he be fantastic at that? Oh well, we can keep our fingers crossed, I guess.

in order to elude the men on their trail, and to avoid suspicion, mulder and scully become popular rap artists under the alias "g-dawg and that bitch". thrown too fast into the intoxicating world of gangsters, drugs and money, they soon find themselves in a gang war, aided only by xzibit and a bomb made cleverly out of soap and paco rabanne (those sassy bastards!). spoiler: everyone dies at the end because mulder stupidly holds the oh-so-clever bomb for too long while reciting a soliloquy about "the truth".

There have been stranger casting choices on The X-Files series than these three. Jerry Springer? Kathy Griffin? Governor Jesse "The Body" Ventura?

Why the hell is Amanda Peet in the X-Files?(My favourite rant since I heard the news.) Nothing against her personally, but not for X-Files.

I'm also really disappointed, because I really liked Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish. Why aren't they in the movie? I would have continued watching the show with just the two of them!

I'll see the movie (probably many times), but I'm still pissed!
