David Duchovny on Aquarius, the '60s, and Returning to X-Files

David Duchovny has a long, decades-spanning IMDB page so, quite naturally, he's many things to many people. Still, chances are most know the gruff actor in one of two ways: either as Fox Mulder, the incorrigible conspiracy theorist on FOX's 90s sci-fi behemoth, X-Files, or as the womanizing, forever-haphazard-living novelist Hank Moody on Showtime's long-running comedy, Californication. Prepare to add another role to the list: starting tonight, Duchovny stars as sergeant Sam Hodiac, a no-nonsense, flattop-sporting, Charles Manson-hunting detective on NBC's new 60s-era drama, Aquarius. For the 54-year-old actor, Hodiac was the perfect character to inhabit at this point in see more

Jon Stewart Breaks Down the FIFA Scandal

Understanding a decades-in-the-making scandal like the current FIFA investigation can be pretty confusing, especially for those who aren't particularly soccer-obsessed (read: most Americans). But don't worry if you're in the dark—Jon Stewart explained the situation in such a way last night that even the most sporting event-averse types can easily comprehend what's going on: "FIFA is so bad, they got arrested by the Swiss," he said. "A country whose official policy on Nazi gold was, and I quote, 'We'll allow it.'" Stewart then launched into a short one-man play, FIFA: A 24-Year Sting Operation (involving many wigs, a pair see more

Watch Jason Segel as David Foster Wallace in the First Trailer for The End of the Tour

Two years after author David Foster Wallace committed suicide in 2008, writer David Lipsky published the book Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself, which chronicles five days during Foster Wallace's book tour to promote his highly praised novel Infinite Jest. The book is being adapted into a film that will serve as a kinda-sorta biopic, starring Jason Segel as Wallace and Jesse Eisenberg as Lipsky, and the trailer just hit the Internet. You can get your first look at the movie above. see more

Meet Vanbot, Sweden's Next Electro-Pop Star

If you've ever wondered why so many electro-pop legends come out of Sweden, take it from Ester Ideskog, a Stockholm-based artist herself: It's the weather. "We really live when summer comes, but in the winter months, it's dark all day and all night. I think that's what makes us more creative," she says. "These dynamic seasons do something to our music." The seasons have, at least, done wonders for Ideskog, better known by her stage name, Vanbot. After trashing her second album, set for release two years ago, she's back this month with Perfect Storm, 13 tracks of icy soundscapes see more

The Smoking Man Will Return in the X-Files Reboot

We have a long road ahead to the premiere of the X-Files reboot, but we're already getting hints about the highly anticipated reboot of the supernatural thriller. First things first: Agent Fox Mulder's elusive foil the Smoking Man will be making a return, reports Screen Crush. While all the details surrounding the show are highly protected and as mysterious as the Smoking Man himself, Duchovny did reveal that the first script made him cry, reports Entertainment Weekly. And while Fox currently has ordered only six episodes, Duchovny says that he'd be open to a second season of the reissued see more

Jon Stewart Talks Religious Freedom With Rand Paul, Hilarity Ensues

If there's one thing Jon Stewart is good at (and there are, in fact, many things Jon Stewart is good at), it's calling out politicians on their blatant hypocrisies. That's why it was such a delight to see the host sit down with U.S. Senator Rand Paul last night to talk about what the concept of personal freedom really means—and, perhaps more important, what it doesn't mean. For example, on the topic of businesses that refuse to provide services for same-sex weddings in the name of "religious freedom," Stewart challenged the senator thusly: "It seems like gay marriage looms see more

Check it all out, above. see more

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Lost 40 Pounds by Eating One Can of Tuna a Day

If actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan is looking a little slimmer than usual, it's because he went on a dangerous crash diet to lose weight for his latest role in the History Channel's Texas Rising. Morgan, who you might remember from Grey's Anatomy or PS, I Love You, told the Today show he needed to lose about 10 pounds for his role in the miniseries, which tells the story of Texas rebelling against Mexico in the 1830s. But he ended up losing nearly 40 pounds by living on a single can of tuna every day. "I did it in the most see more

Model Joan Smalls Channels Pharrell in This Year's CFDA Awards Journal

We're less than a week out from the CFDA Awards—which is essentially the Oscars of fashion for American designers. Each year, the CFDA also produces a limited-edition "journal" that features imagery and short profiles on the nominees and honorees. This year, Pharrell is being honored with the Fashion Icon award. Unfortunately, Pharrell couldn't make the shoot for the journal because he was somewhere being iconically stylish, so the CFDA (with its creative partner Trey Laird of Laird + Partners) used model Joan Smalls as a stand-in. Smalls is styled wearing Pharrell signatures like the Adidas track jacket and Stan see more
