David Duchovny may be moving from one ’90s revival to another.
The actor, who reprised his role as Agent Mulder for Fox’s upcoming X-Files event series, is eyeing a possible guest-stint in Showtime’s Twin Peaks continuation.Duchovny played transgender DEA agent Denise Bryson for three episodes during the show’s original ABC run (scroll down to watch the character’s memorable introduction).
“There is a chance I’ll show up on Twin Peaks,” he told TVLine Saturday at New York Comic-Con, where he was promoting X-Files‘ January relaunch. Fearing the presumed wrath of franchise overlord David Lynch, who to date has only confirmed the return of Kyle MacLachlan’s Agent Cooper, Duchovny quickly added, “That’s all I can say. I’ve been frightened into silence.”
Asked if he would be be up for slipping back into Denise’s form-fitting skirts, Duchovny responded with a grin, “Yeah, I’ll shave my legs.”
Lynch and fellow co-creator Mark Frost have penned all episodes of the present-day revival — which is rumored to total more than a dozen episodes — with Lynch directing every installment. Filming is currently underway in Washington state ahead of a tentative 2017 debut.
