We knew earlier this month that Mitch Pileggi was probably returning for The X-Files’ new series (here)… but now the actor himself has confirmed his return via Twitter (below).
Pileggi was FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner in the original series and was Fox Mulder’s friend and the person that kept him grounded a lot of the time because of his skeptical nature.
We’re even more exited now!
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are confirmed back as Mulder and Scully for the new limited-series.
Very happy to announce that Walter Skinner will once again be getting all grumpy and bitchy with his two wayward kids. Very happy.
