The made-for-TV movie/miniseries would be an almost completely lost art if it weren't for HBO and the British imports served up by PBS' various Masterpiece franchises. Already this year, we have a deliciously strong contender for best-of-year (and, one imagines, Emmy) honors with Masterpiece Classic's over-too-quickly Downton Abbey.
It's another boy for Gillian Anderson.

Oh, I believe in the X-Files. Hundreds of fans filled bleachers and lined Hollywood Blvd. to catch a glimpse of the creators and stars of The X-Files: I Want to Believe at its premiere Wednesday night. Being a huge nerd fan myself, I felt like I had stepped into some alternate dimension X-Files case it was truly surreal. I walked the red carpet and the fans went crazy as we caught b-roll of people wearing Mulder and Scully t-shirts or waving homemade signs and our own TV Guide cover with Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. My fellow "X-Philes" were thrilled to see a true fan working the carpet, and rewarded me with thunderous applause. I felt like a star myself. After our crews got in place, fans were treated to a special press conference with Gillian, David, Frank Spotnitz, and Chris Carter, moderated by Entertainment Weekly's Whitney Pastorek (lucky girl!). Fans got to ask questions for 15 minutes, and early birds who had been given a black bracelet in the bleachers were p...

Gillian Anderson may be about to return to the big screen, but she's also set to hit the London stage again next spring. "Scully" has signed on to play Nora in a new adaptation of Ibsen's The Doll House. Per Variety, the appearance is just the latest role for the London local on the stage there. Anderson's previous U.K. stage roles were in plays including What the Night Is For at the Comedy Theater and The Sweetest Swing in Baseball. In the meantime, us non-Londoners will get to see her in The X-Files: I Want to Believe in just a few weeks.

The X Files: I Want to Believe star Gillian Anderson is pregnant with her second child with boyfriend Mark Griffiths, says People. The couple already has a baby son named Oscar, who was born in November 2006, and Anderson has a 13-year-old daughter, Piper, from her previous marriage to Clyde Klotz. A budding belly might explain the loose, towel-like dress Anderson wore to the Cannes Film Festival while promoting her film, How to Lose Friends and Alienate People. Plus, she did have that lovely, "I'm pregnant" glow. The X-Files: I Want to Believe opens July 25. Erin Fox
