David Duchovny

'The X-Files' Fox Mulder disappeared when Duchovny's movie career was taking off. Mulder was "in hiding" for much of Seasons 8 and 9, but reemerged toward the end of Season 9 (the show's last) to explain ... well, not much of anything. In the feature film "X-Files: I Want to Believe," Mulder was still a fugitive, but was allowed to work with the FBI on the movie's missing-persons storyline. Best comeback: Although the end of the series didn't give fans much closure, Duchovny's return to the character opened the door for more movies. --Andy Grieser, Zap2It.com
