Amanda Peet is joining the cast of the X-Files movie which is set to start filming Monday in Vancouver and be released in July of next year. I expect everyone in Vancouver to be nice to Amanda.
Amanda will be playing a FBI agent alongside another addition to the cast Xzibit. That's right, Xzibit is going to be a FBI agent. I like how The X-Files is actually moving forward and not relying on so many actors from the early 20th century like they did on the television show. I know I am probably wrong, but I honestly can't remember if they ever had any characters on the show who were other than white.
Scottish comedian Billy Connolly who is a blind item on here somewhere has also signed up to play a role, but no one can figure out what the hell he is going to be doing. The film has been shrouded in secrecy, but it is known that the movie has a complete stand alone story and is not a sequel or continuation of the 1998 film. Damn, has it been nine years? Did Billy Connolly and Whoopi Goldberg used to be together or was that a movie or a really bad food poisoning dream? I seem to remember dreads and a kilt somewhere in my mind but am too lazy to look that up.
Anyway, I love the X-Files, but am ecstatic for Amanda. She gets to be in a cult film that will be shown forever. She likes cookies people. Lots and lots of cookies. No, not that kind Jax. Just regular cookies. Macademia nut if you have them. Preferably not store bought.
