INTERVIEW WITH DAVID DUCHOVNY:
You must have had great sympathy for everyone who had to sit through hours of makeup to become drag queens. Whats the toughest thing about playing a drag queen?
Well, I didnt get to dress up as a woman in this film so Im a little bitter about that. But the hardest thing is, from what I remember about Twin Peaks, is that no matter what shape you are in, your hose make you feel fat. Even if youre in really good shape, and I was in really good shape then, and Id put on those panty hose and I didnt like what I saw. Then when I took them off, there were lines all over the place.
Were you at all jealous you didn't get to dress in drag and sing in "Connie and Carla?" Did you want to jump in?
With those guys? Yeah, I did. If I could sing, I would have pushed harder. But I can only dance.
How do you think Toni Collette and Nia Vardalos shape up as men?
As men? I think well. Its hard for me, from my perspective of knowing them, its hard for me to get the right perspective and just see the film and think, Oh, are they passing as men? But I think they did a good job. I think its right on the right line.
Its different seeing you in a broad comedy.
I like scripts. Whatever scripts that are good, I like to try to do. I like Nias writing a lot. I think its got a real strong point of view and its funny in a really kind of genuine and kind way, and thats what I wanted to do.
Will we see you in more comedies in the future?
Yeah, I would hope so. Its a script-by-script thing. I would love to. I enjoyed it.
Whats happening with The X-Files movie?
Were trying to get everybody together and find out a date when we can do it.
Does it surprise you that people still care so much about The X-Files?
No. No, because everything or most of the stuff that I see on television all that reality stuff doesnt really go deep.
