Actor, director, write, recovered sex addict, and man of many talents David Duchovny has been charming audiences for decades now. But for all his work in film and television, it’s his role as FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder on The X-Files that has garnered the most fanfare over the years. With his photographic memory and obsessive inquiries into extraterrestrial life, the red/green colorblind Mulder found the perfect foil in Agent Dana Scully, and for nine seasons and two films we watched with baited breath as they continued their quest for the truth and wondered just when the hell the two would finally kiss.
But as today marks Duchovny’s 54th birthday, let’s take a look back at some of our favorite Mulder moments. Get spooky and enjoy.
