Most popular TV series of 90s, the X-Files, is back after 13 years of pause, and with it returns most mysterios personage, the Smoking Man. We do not know his name, but his role is very important in the movie. He is always with a cigarette, therefore is just called The Smoking Man.
This week David Duchovny, who plays agent Mulder in The X-Files, took part in Late Show With David Letterman. During the show he told that the movie is back with its two supporting characters: The Smoking Man played by William B. Davis and agent's boss Walter Skinner, played by Mitch Pileggi. He said:
“Mitch Pileggi will come back, and the Cigarette-Smoking Man—if this means anything to anyone—will be coming back.”
As you know, The X-Files is full of strange and shadowy personages, but the Smoking Man is considered most shadowy of them. As you remember, at the end of the series he was shot with a rocket out of a helicopter.
We all thought that he was died, but seems like we have been mistaken. He survived like a real iconic personage in a Hollywood movie. We also thought that 13 years ago the X-Files ended and we never knew that after several years it would turn back on TV screens.
The production of new six episode event series would start in the upcoming summer.
First episode of The X-Files appeared on TV on September 10, 1993, and it was welcomed positively by the public. The TV series received positive reviews not only in the USA but in many countries worldwide. The new episodes would be directed by famous Chris Carter and would feature David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson playing the well-known FBI agents.
