British actor Simon Pegg is keen to land a role in the next big screen installment of The X-Files.
The Shaun of the Dead star is adamant original FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, played by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, should be included in the upcoming third film, and he is desperate for a role himself.
He tells Britain’s The Sun, “I was a big fan of The X-Files and I’ve become friends with Gillian Anderson since. I’ve always loved that show so it’s definitely something I’d consider. It’s a great story and it would be nice to see it continue… (but) it has to be with David Duchovny and with Gillian. “
