I’ve added two sets of magazine scans to the gallery. Both articles are from Starlog magazine and come from 1996 and 1998 when Mitch was playing AD Walter Skinner on THE X-FILES. In both articles he talks about Skinner and his relationship to Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson). The 1998 article focuses in on the film THE X-FILES: FIGHT THE FUTURE and Skinner’s evolution in terms of his help to Mulder and Scully. Mitch also talks lovingly about series creator Chris Carter and about his having no desire whatsoever to write or direct. That’s our Mitch. He also talks about Arlene and Sawyer and being a father for the first time. I’m in the process of getting both articles typed up and put in the press section. Until that time the HQ scans are there for you to click on to bring up and you can read them yourselves. Enjoy.

I found an appearance Mitch did with Gillian Anderson (Dana Scully) and Robert Patrick (John Doggett) in an X-FILES panel at the Calgary Expo on 28 April 2013. Mitch looked handsom as always. Enjoy.

According to David Duchovny, there is a new X-FILES film being put together. Duchovny told the French site TV MAG that one is in the preparation stages by Chris Carter and company. There is a script being worked on. Here is what Duchovny had to say:

“It is in the process of being written. One awaits just the green light from Fox, who are a little disappointed from the relatively poor reception of the second film. (The film grossed $20.8 million.) The error comes, in my opinion, from the authors straying too far from the roots of the series. Moreover, the film was released in the summer. The third will be much closer to what the public expects, with government conspiracies, etc.”

My hope is that Mitch’s role will be more than a mere walk on at the end like he had in I Want to Believe or just as a sounding board as he had in Fight the Future. My other hope is that if there is another film, it includes Robert Patrick (Agent John Doggett) and Annabeth Gish (Agent Monica Reyes). They as much as Mitch deserve to be in the next film because like it or not, they were part of the show after Duchovny left. And I liked them. Period!
