Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny in 'The X-Files: I Want To Believe'It's something I've been waiting over a decade for - the chance to interview one of my favorite TV duos, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, from one of the best TV shows of all time, "The X-Files." The occasion was the press junket for their new film, "The X-Files: I Want to Believe," and it started with a flight from JFK to LAX. I arrived at the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel on Friday afternoon, and shortly afterward was on a shuttle van to the movie screening at the Zanuck Theatre, on the Fox lot.

But anyone thinking the name doesn't have a deeper meaning is as misguided as the Cigarette Smoking Man.

"The title makes sense because [the poster] was really emblematic of Mulder's faith, and the struggle for his faith," stated series creator Chris Carter during an exclusive interview with MTV News at NY Comic-Con.
