Another X-Files Alumn (or should we say Alumns) Join Season 10

You may be wondering, as was I, just what happened to The Lone Gunmen. If you read the Season 10 comics published by IDW and written by Joe Harris, you would know (SPOILER) that their deaths were faked by the FBI. The Gunmen, played by Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, and Bruce Harwood, have been confirmed for to appear in the six-episode event alongside other alumni such as Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis.

The X-Files Gives Us A Tease

The X-Files Gives Us A Tease

It’s here, Philes! The first official teaser trailer for the much-anticipated X-Files extension series! The powers that be (hey, FOX, what’s up?) gave us this little ditty which, honestly, may only show us the wiser Mulder and Scully for about five seconds, but it was enough to get me even more excited than I was before watching it.

Be honest, who is doing the 201 days of X-Files leading up the Jan 24, 2016 premiere? I am sure going to try! Crap, I’m an episode behind already ….

Young Vic ‘Streetcar Named Desire’ with Gillian Anderson and Ben Foster coming stateside 

In September of last year I had the privilege of having a National Theatre Live Event showing of Streetcar Named Desire from the Young Vic at a local movie theatre. I walked out of that showing awestruck. This was the kind of theatre I went to theatre school to make. This was the kind of magic that I longed to go to the theatre and see with my own eyes, not through a movie screen. My longing is about to be fulfilled as the Streetcar Named Desire with Gillian Anderson and Ben Foster is about to come stateside.

Gillian Anderson to pen new book titled ‘WE’ – A women’s self-help guide

Gillian Anderson to pen new book titled ‘WE’ – A women’s self-help guide

After a roaring success (at least I’m calling it that) with her first novel, A Vision of Fire, released back in October, it was only a matter of time before Gillian Anderson took to the page again. While A Vision of Fire is only the first in a series penned with co-author Jeff Rovin, it will likely be a while before we see the publishing of the second novel in the series. Until then, keep your eyes peeled for this new novel by Anderson titled WE.
