Since so much of the energy in X-Files in the 90's came from the restrained romantic tension between two attractive people, Mulder and Scully,
How they will play this relationship out in the upcoming mini-series some 15 years later remains to be seen. And it could be quite a challenge. Gillian Anderson remains a quite beautiful woman, shown here in her role as Hannibal Lecter's psychiatrist on the current series.
Duchovny now at age 54 and Shandling back then
It was a running joke, written into the script, too, that Duchovy and Shandling were look-alikes. (And on Shandler's show, they appeared together and insinuated a sexual attraction between them.) Back in the 90's, young Duchovny was considered hot stuff; Shandling never and not even close. But now genetic doom seems to be catching up with Fox Mulder.
