‘The X-Files’ Revival Adds ‘Flash’ Star Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose
If we were wondering why The Flash star Robbie Amell seemed absentee for Season 2 or Legends of Tomorrow, FOX’s X-Files revival may officially have closed the case. Not only will Amell join the revived sci-fi conspiracy thriller as a new FBI agent, he’ll be joined by Six Feet Under alum Lauren Ambrose.
Just coming in over the wire, both Amell and Ambrose will play a confident pair of FBI agents appearing in the fourth installment of the six-episode revival. Amell’s Agent Miller is described as “smart” and “smooth,” while Ambrose’s Agent Einstein is similarly described as “sharp” and “confident.”
Thus far, FOX’s X-Files return has confirmed Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis to reprise their roles beside David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, while Community star Joel McHale will play a conservative pundit who tasks Mulder and Scully with investigating a woman claiming to have been abducted (The Americans star Annet Mahendru). On the creative side, writers and producers Chris Carter, Glen Morgan and Jim Wong will return to write and direct, with Frank Spotnitz also eyed to pitch in, and composer Mark Snow also coming aboard.
Plenty more details and castings will arise in the meantime, but who else beside Amell and Ambrose might crop up in the 2016 return? Could we be seeing the next generation of agents to continue The X-Files?
