David Duchovny Making Stage Debut

Californication star David Duchovny is making his Broadway debut in Neil LaBute's The Break of Noon.

He has previously acted “off, off, off, off — as many off’s as you can put in front of Broadway. I’ve never done anything close to this scale.”

Although he has done very theater work in the past!

“In L.A., they’re called showcases,” said David. “In New York, nobody comes to see them so you can’t really call them showcases.”

The play centers around John Smith, a man who “amidst the chaos and horror of the worst office shooting in American history, sees the face of God,” setting off a “maelstrom of disbelief among everyone he knows.”

It will open at NYC's Lucille Lortel Theater on October 28th and begin at Los Angeles' Geffen Playhouse next year.

Duchovny said:

“The setup is grim, of course, but there’s certainly some darker, absurd, humorous moments. It tends towards the spiritual and the human. It’s a very surprising play, with a very surprising stance on tragedy.

I just thought, well, I can stay home and work if I do the theater. That would be a really nice schedule to try. I remember reading this article about Matthew Broderick riding his bike to the theater and it just sounded very romantic to me.

I don’t think of myself as a TV actor. I think of myself as a film, television and Off-Off-Off-Off Broadway actor. Certainly. I wouldn’t succeed at musical theater.”

Ha. We'd love to see him try!

    David Duchovny is a great actor. From his work on the X Files to Californication, he has a broad range of acting abilities. I'm very excited for him to take on this next role! C'mon, people, why are we ALWAYS so negative??
