When asked what was hardest about coming back, David explained: "You want to create [new material], but yet you have this history and body of work behind you. The most difficult were the scenes with Gillian because I put more weight on those than anything else."
"I second that. And the first 48 hours," Gillian said.
Creator Chris Carter affirmed that renowned composer Mark Snow would return to do the score, and said Amanda Peet does play FBI Agent Dakota Whitney, but had no more details about the roles Xzibit and Billy Connolly play. He also wouldn't confirm if the supposedly deceased Alex Krycek would reappear, but did say, "We want to keep most of this a secret, but I will say...nobody's ever really dead in the X-Files."

Pixar's next is WALL*E, and director Andrew Stanton gave us a look at four clips showing the adventures of a robot in space. WALL*E is basically a trash compactor on wheels, created by humankind to clean up the garbage while man leaves earth for awhile. When nobody returns, the robots shut down one by one, leaving WALL*E to his own devices. Pixar's animation, as always, is stellar (gnuk, gnuk), but what's fascinating is the film's lack of dialogue. Adressing the virtually wordless clips shown of WALL*E's life on earth and his meeting with an android from outer space, Stanton said he wanted his characters to show personality in their expressions. "I wanted to create a robot, not a person in a robot suit," he said. "I wanted it to be seen as a machine first." The robot's "look" was created, Stanton added, when he was playing with binoculars at a baseball game.
