Brian Huskey: X-Files, People of Earth, and the Lost Art of Forehead Sweat

February 5, 201839 min
On episode 42 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with actor, Brian Huskey, about his recent appearance on the stand-out episode of The X-Files, "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat", written and directed by beloved fan-favorite, Darin Morgan, best known for his meta comedic episodes of the hit series. While exploring the idea of the Mandela Effect, in which groups of people remember an alternate history, Mulder and Scully discover how the X-Files may have originated. Huskey plays the role of "Reggie Something", a peculiar stranger who confronts Mulder and Scully, explaining that he may, in fact, be no stranger, but their third partner. Not only that, but Reggie may have been the originator of the X-Files, and may hold the key to finding the Truth to what is, and always has, been out there. Huskey navigates us through his experiences on the episode, his thoughts on what the episode meant both on the surface and the bigger picture, and then he gives his personal thoughts on UFOs, alien abductions, and the great debate of facts v.s. proof in today's truth-malleable world. It was a funny, fascinating, and refreshing journey to find answers by one of today's most talented performers and newfound X-Files favorite!
