David Duchovny was born and raised in New York City. He was on the road to earning his Ph.D. in English Literature when, to his family's eternal disappointment, he began acting. Subsequently, Duchovny emerged to become one of the most highly acclaimed actors in Hollywood. Duchovny recently starred alongside Demi Moore in the film The Joneses. For his work on Californication, Duchovny won the Golden Globe in 2008 for Best Actor in a Comedy Series. From 1993-2002, he starred in Fox Television's monster hit The X-Files, which earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series and two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series. He bats right and throws right.
Life has been a rocky road of ups and downs for famed novelist and NYC transplant Hank Moody since he relocated to Los Angeles. He suffered through a terrible case of writer’s block, a crappy Hollywood adaptation of his prized tome, the death of the rock star whose memoirs he was writing, and a single, tumultuous term as college professor, where the temptations of faculty, students and the dean’s wife proved too much for him. But when the truth comes out that he is the real author of former underage flame Mia’s scandalous book, it not only upends his home life, it lands him in jail. It may sound desperate, but Hank enjoys his life and owns all his vices – drink, drugs and women – with a refreshing sense of honesty and unapologetic candor. He’s holding it together while falling apart, and he doesn’t mind one bit.
