WOW! Is all I can say about the performance from Judith Light as Harris’ mother Judith. I remember watching Judith on the soap opera One Life To Live as the hooker with a heart Karen Wolek, then on the show LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT as EADA/Judge Elizabeth Donnelly, ironically not in the two episodes Mitch appeared as DEA Special Agent Jack Hammond. I knew Judith was amazing, she’s won several Emmys for her work, but her hospital scenes with the unconscious Mitch were just stellar. There’s the air of a Greek tragedy with a hint of Odyssia and Alexander The Great Oedipal fixation with Mama Ryland. I’m hoping for more scenes between Mitch and Judith as time goes on. Unfortunately Judith is only signed for eight episodes. Please powers the be give us more before Judith leaves. The way is being left open for Judith to return, but come on, Harris needs his mama. All I can think of is THE X-FILES ninth season episode 4D where AD Skinner said to Lukesh, “Say hi to mama.” That’s what I’d love to do with Judith Ryland. So glad they didn’t pull out Harris’ coma long. That would have been excruciating, though Mitch does look good in hospital wear. Don’t like the respirator covering up that beautiful face though.

I should create an animation of this but I think I’ll just leave it to the still frame. No one takes a shot in the gut quite the way Mitch does. Starting in THE X-FILES season three with Piper Maru/Apocrypha to this episode, Mitch has had pretty bad luck in terms of facing a bullet. However, he’s recovered quickly. Here’s hoping for Harris.

 'Dallas' Harris Ryland played by Mitch Pileggi takes a shot to the gut from his ex-wife Ann (Brenda Strong) in the second season episode Sins of the Father.

A really cute interview with Mitch I found quite by accident. I was doing a Youtube for something and found this. The interview with someone attached to THE X-FILES co-producer Frank Spotnitz @ BIGLIGHT.COM. The interviewer asks Mitch about his time on THE X-FILES and he tells a really cute story of introducing his daughter Sawyer to THE X-FILES and sharing the experience with her. He also speaks of his work in the CRIMINAL MINDS episode Normal, which he calls some of his best work. Mitch also explains about his past with the show DALLAS back in the day as well as his work as Morrissey and now as Harrison Ryland. I love this guy.

Mitch wasn’t on tonight’s premiere of the DALLAS continuation. I’m hoping we get to see him next week. Not much on his character but there is a write up on the TNT website on Ann Ewing (Brenda Strong). I’ve emboldened the parts that concern Mitch. More below the cut.

Ann Ewing

Ann Ewing is the third wife of Bobby Ewing. Introduced by mutual friend Sue Ellen, Bobby was instantly struck by Ann’s quiet strength and beauty. A consummate horse cutter, she fell in love with SouthFork Ranch. They quickly fell in love and married, and the pair settled in to SouthFork and began making it their own. A woman who can work a gun and ride a stallion, Ann fits right into the Ewing lineup of beautiful women who know their way around a ranch. Ann’s first marriage to big-time Texas transportation executive Harris Ryland, who is as sly as he is rich, continues to haunt Ann in her new life. But despite her past, she is a supportive wife to Bobby and has assumed her role as the new matriarch of SouthFork with dignity and grace.

This bodes well for Mitch. I like the description of him, sly as he is rich. I’m hoping the hype is well rewarded. I can’t stand to see Mitch once again underused and under appreciated. His track record in SUPERNATURAL, STARGATE: ATLANTIS, SONS OF ANARCHY and GREY’S ANATOMY are starting to make me think this guy will never get his rightful due. He’s not had a respectful and substantive role since playing Skinner on THE X-FILES. Oh how I long for Chris Carter.

I have capped up and clipped up Mitch’s work in THE X-FILES: FIGHT THE FUTURE. While I already had screencaps in the gallery, they were from the regular DVD and didn’t include the extras. I wanted to get better screencaps for the gallery so the ones I have are from the HD DVD. I’ve included the extras in the form of a gag reel where Mitch is heard uttering something that was bleeped, and a behind-the-scenes video showing how they made the film and with interviews from stars David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, William B. Davis, John Neville and from newcomers Martin Landau, Jeffrey DeMunn, Terry O’Quinn and Armin Mueller-Stahl. Enjoy.
