Get ready for another X-Files reunion! This one, however, will not be on the big screen, but instead a televised celebration of Fox’s silver anniversary. The network will air the two-hour 25th Anniversary Special on Sunday, April 22 that will not only reunite Agents Scully and Mulder — better known as Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny — with series creator Chris Carter, but also a whole host of other special guests.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, That ’70s Show alum Ashton Kutcher will join former castmates Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama for the special. One-time Fly Girl Jennifer Lopez will also be there both with her fellow American Idol judges and with Keenen Ivory Wayans, Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans, who gave her her first televised job on In Living Color.
The reunions continue as Ed O’Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate and David Faustino of Married … With Children fame take the stage. The same goes for original 90210 cast members Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty and Ian Ziering. Keifer Sutherland (24, Touch), Patrick Warburton (The Tick), Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal) and Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, American Dad) are also scheduled to appear.
No word has been given yet as to the nature of the reunions or the appearances. Might we see the actors in their original roles? Are we going to see modern-day versions of the That ’70s Show kids, or possibly catch up with the Bundys? The lack of early network hit and recent blockbuster inspiration 21 Jump Street as well as well as Simpsons voice actors seems suspicious. What other special guests would you like to see on the special?
