It's all about to go boom...

A before-they-were-famous moment greeted Simon when he gave the first X-Files movie another spin...

When you rewatch a film or TV programme from a decade or so again, it’s almost inevitable that you’ll encounter a face that’s all-too-familiar in the present day.

And so it proves to be in the first X-Files movie, Fight The Future, where there’s the small matter of Terry O’Quinn, aka John Locke from Lost, who pops up with some quite disturbing facial appendage above his lip.

Sadly, his role in the film isn’t a big one, given that he’s, er, blown to smithereens when he sits and doesn’t bother defusing the bomb that he’s been sent in to stop. But as FBI agent Darius Michaud, he does get to practice that serious look that would serve him so well nearly ten years down the line.
