The name of the new X-Files 2 movie has finally been revealed. Sources say the movie is entitled “X Files : I Want To Believe“.
Xzibit’s casting has also been discussed in a recent interview with the creators/writers of the movie, Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz.
“There are three actors new to the X-Files franchise who are said to have notable roles in the film, including Amanda Peet, rapper Xzibit and Scottish comedian Billy Connolly. Spotnitz discussed each of these actors, explaining “Amanda Peet is an FBI agent, as is Xzibit. In Amanda Peet, we were looking for somebody who was Scully-like in a way – that intelligence, that intensity, that authority that Gillian Anderson naturally commands, so Amanda we thought, especially after seeing her in Studio 60 on television, we thought she was great for this role. Xzibit was just a discovery for us. We knew his music, but we didn’t realize what a great actor he was. He’s really fantastic. He’s another FBI agent. I don’t think you would picture him as an FBI agent normally. But he’s really quite good.“
