FOX’s upcoming revival of The X-Files will feature much of the show’s original cast, including David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, as well as Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner) and William B. Davis (The Smoking Man). There will also be several new cast members, the first of whom was revealed today.
McHale is most known for his comedic roles as host of The Soup and portraying Jeff Winger in Community. However, he has dabbled in more serious work as of late, most notably in the form of a two-episode appearance on Sons of Anarchy.
The X-Files will return to FOX for a new six-episode season beginning January 26th, 2016.
