The Definition of "Typecast."

Just because I am currently backpacking through Eastern Europe does not mean I do not pay attention to the news. And by news, I mean the truly important events that are taking place throughout the world, affecting our lives, and those of our children, for years and decades to come. No, I'm not talking about Senator Barack Obama's nomination at the Democratic National Convention; that's not news, everyone already knew it was going to happen. I'm talking about Hollywood scandal! The actor David Duchovny, best known for his portrayal of the disturbed but brilliant FBI agent Fox Mulder on the cult show The X Files, has gone into rehab for sex addiction. Now why do I take the time from my Bulgarian sightseeing to point this out? It just so happens that Mr. Duchovny's latest role, for which he won a Golden Globe, is on the Showetime television series Californication... in which he just so happens to play a sex addict. And I think that's funny. Unfortunate and cosmically poetic, but definitely funny.

Talk about your method acting...

I love that I can depend on you for this up-to-the-minute, pertinent news reportage. Even from Bulgaria. I leave in 6 days. I am over-the-moon excited. I can't wait to experience the weirdness that is America. Happy travels, keep us posted! Miss you : )

ironically, didn't his real life wife (tea leoni, probably not spelled right) once play a guest role as a sex addict on the tv show frasier?
