FOX has confirmed that Mitch Pileggi will reprise his iconic role of Walter Skinner in the upcoming eleventh season of “The X-Files”.
Pileggi is the first member outside of the series’ two leads to officially sign on for the recently announced season. Pileggi also appeared in the show’s last revival season, released last January, along with a brief appearance by series long antagonist the Cigarette-Smoking Man (William B. Davis).
Though still most famous for his “X-Files” role, the actor has had a very healthy post-XF career in television with recurring roles in many series including “Supernatural,” “Stargate Atlantis,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Dallas,” “The Mountain,” “Tarzan” and “The Batman”.
