Scully as Bond?

This is a thing coming out of left field.

Gillian Anderson - who's youthful past in England gives her a posh-enough accent - is throwing her hat into the ring to play James Bond.

It seems Daniel Craig has tired of the role, turning down a ton of money for the next movie, which is opening up the coveted iconic role among a slew of UK actors (and actresses) keen on taking up the mantle.

The list of fan-preferred actors start with Tom "Loki" Hiddleston and goes through Idris "Luther" Elba and Damien "Major Winters" Lewis. But there are so many more... And Gillian's gone onto Twitter to put her name in the mix.

Thing is, I'm kinda conflicted.

I'm a huge Scully fan. I totally would love to see Gillian in anything.

It's just... I don't see her as Bond.

I kinda think Hayley Atwell would be a better Bond.

I'm sorry, but I do.

I'm also partial to Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthew "Neville" Lewis, and that other guy.

So, let's settle this Thunderdome style, people...

X-Files Enters The Indeterminate Stage of Maybe/Maybe Not

The current news about an eleventh season:

On a conference call with reporters, Fox chairmen and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman said that all parties involved want to do another installment of the show.
The trick is figuring out the schedules of stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. So Fox hopes to announce another installment of the series at their upfront presentation next year.

Essentially, they're planning on having The X-Files serve as a mid-season or late-season filler to cover any gaps that may occur when regular season shows tank and flame out (or are created by Joss Whedon and mercilessly killed off).

So we're in a holding pattern here.

This means I gotta catch up on my backlog of Season surveys during the summer.
