      He only had two roles in the 80s, it was 88 and 89, and they were basically glorified extras rolls. Think you are off by a decade and mean 90s and 00s.

      @HAL 9000 no there was actually a legal dispute over the name of the show because RHCP thought it would "dilute the value of their creative property".. which they lost, but the creators of the show just internally agreed not to use the song. Good thing too- it would've been too on the nose anyway.

    The awesome thing about The X-Files is that the plot never ages cuz conspiracy theories never get old...its about secrets that have never truly been revealed even 30yrs later, making the show always interesting and entertaining, like the episodes could have been written yesterday! Truly amazing!! And Moulder and Scully are freakin awesome!!

    I like how he recognizes how good he had it with The X-Files and that the doubts he had after doing the show for 6 or 7 years weren't valid. I think we always think the grass is greener elsewhere, but sometimes we are living our best lives right now.

    He’s a pure legend, but honestly I think the highlight of his career so far is X-Files. It’s just so authentic, he as well as Gillian and Mitch have cemented X-Files, the story, and those characters in cinema history. They’re irreplaceable, truly a show that can never be remade, and that’s legendary.
    That’s why David and Gillian are my heroes 💙

I mean, honestly, he's a far, far, better actor than people give credit for - whether the X-Files, Californication, or Aquarius he has great comic timing, emotional authenticity, and is utterly believable. Always grounded. And he's a great writer too.

    Californication was different. The entire series has been like a third parent to me.
    The series had so much humor, was often very emotional and conveyed mostly good values. A bunch of fun, kind-hearted people taught me the importance of family and the importance of keeping rock 'n' roll and pursuing the things in life that are important to you. Karen once said something like "Take the things you love and build your life out of them". Wonderful.

    It amuses me that he didn't see the x files as a "movie worthy" franchise... and then made two movies based on the x files.
    As well as the number of young actors, such as Ryan Reynolds who played bit parts and then went on to become really famous. The x files was huge!

      Maybe you should watch that one again. You have it wrong. He was hung off a cliff by the two girls who were the subject of the episode. His character made no more appearances after that.

    Thanks to my father I've been interested in the paranormal and supernatural my whole life. I am happy the rolls fell in line for those 2. I still have most seasons of X-Files backed up on my phone swapping the other seasons out every so often. I even share the same Birthday as David. Seems like a great guy out of character and he creates those characters well enough where the characters don't stretch between movies or TV parts unless it's necessary.

    I'm not sure why, but they overlooked Duchovny's magnificent performance in the 1991 masterpiece 'Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead'. His outstandingly moving performance as 'Bruce' was an absolute triumph, and perhaps the greatest characterisation that has ever graced the screen. It is undoubtedly the pinnacle of his career, showcasing - flawlessly - his immense talent, and should be accorded the recognition it deserves. The fact that he didn't receive more accolades for the masterclass he displayed is nothing short of shameful, and Vanity Fair did him a savage disservice by omitting any mention of it.

    This is really good at what he does. I mean Californication was really a job well done. Every single season was good. The nudity became less but who cares, all the cast nailed their characters. Especially David. His performance especially for those who had seen and known Mulder was truly respectable.

    respect how frank he is here. X-Files is one of my top TV shows at all time (one of the few I finished to the end, usually I do not have that patience :-)), the first episode came as a surprise and then I could not help to wait for the next episode. I appreciated the chemistry with Scully and the subtle and rare display of mutual affection and vulnerability which is make it more interesting. Otherwise, yes Aquarius was a nice attempt.

    God, I loved David in Californication, the writing and story were amazing, I at least come back to it once a year. I will say that I absolutely hated the final season, even though it was still full of some amazing writing the story was just so thrown together at the last minute to wrap it up. I think a long lost child of Hank was such a bad concept to unnecessarily fill a gap when Madeleine left the show. Besides that, I hated the character Levon.
    I remember David saying that "Hank shouldn't have gotten the happy ending". And I absolutely agree with that, but I think if I had any creative input the last season would have been Hank and Charlie trying to get it right one last time. And it wouldn't have ended with Hank dying but Karen. Hank should have lived his life to excess until it finally broke around him and this time he couldn't fix it.

    The X-Files intro theme, classic of the 90s. The X-Files for me was my first ever 'cared for' TV show, one that I would actually want to follow by episode and by season (and I did, even as a teenager). My best TV shows have been X-Files, Deep Space Nine, and finally the one and only StarGate SG-1. Nothing else since then really touched those 'big three', they are the trifecta of TV shows for me.

    I know that maybe David is not that proud about Hank Moody, but that character kinda save's me.
    I was in a deep depression, feeling tottally lost. And then, someday i watch Californication (probrably on 2007) for the first time, and i've found myself again, thanks to Hank, not all of me, but a least a little peace of myself. I saw myself in the funny parts, the loving, the caring about the family, and i've learn some new tricks about the ladies too, it was so much fun, so much freedom. I own so much for all of this. This show was my only company in so many lonely and dark times. I know that David probrably will never read this poor english message, but thank you for everything man. You're the Best Madafacka in the world. You made me laught so much, the lessons in his friendship with Charlie, and also his flaws was a great teacher too, this show, was so complete and human.
    Ps: My daughter's name is Rebeca, and she's so beatiful and smart as the one on the show.
