The eagerly anticipated return of The X-Files is set to become a reality as we draw ever closer to February 8th. It has been almost fourteen years since the series finale and the blood-thirst for more of Mulder and Scully is not wholly surprising. This is all in spite of the disappointment of The X-Files: I Want to Believe in 2008 (yes, it really did happen).

As we reflect on the original series and revisit career-defining roles for Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, we take a look at some of the other actors to feature with some surprising and great cameos.

Giovanni Ribisi and Jack Black – D.P.O

Jack Black and Giovanni Ribisi

We now associate the ever animated and rambunctious Jack Black with terrific performances that crank up the intensity to 11. However his appearance in season three with Giovanni Ribisi was a little different.

And sadly no, Giovanni Ribisi’s patented dance moves did not feature but was still creepy nevertheless.

As a couple of buddies in a small town working in the local gaming arcade, Ribisi is the subject to Mulder’s attention as he is suspected of several murders all by way of a bolt of lightning. Playing the social outcasts superbly the chill factor is great and their performances heighten the tension as the story unfolds.
