‘The X-Files’ Revival Casts Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose

The X-Files has added two new agents to the FBI roster.

The Flash‘s Robbie Amell and former Six Feet Under star Lauren Ambrose have been cast as Agent Miller and Agent Einstein, respectively. They are signed on for only one episode as guest stars. However, considering this is only a six-episode event series, their roles could still be fairly significant.

Knowing FOX, I would entirely expect that they’re setting up Amell and Ambrose to replace David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, should this revival of The X-Files prove to be a hit. I think that’d be a terrible idea, personally, but I can see the logic in keeping The X-Files franchise going, even if Duchovny and Anderson want out after the six-episode revival. I guess it all depends on the execution. Both actors are certainly talented enough to make this work.
