Four-time Emmy-nominated actor David Duchovny will receive the 2,572nd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday, one night after the premiere of six-episode “The X-Files” “event series” on Fox.

“The X-Files”creator Chris Carter and comedian Garry Shandling will join Duchovny in speaking in the 11:30 a.m. ceremony in front of the Fox Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.

Duchovny received outstanding lead actor in a drama series Emmy nominations in 1997 and 1998 for his portrayal of FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder on “The X-Files,” which initially ran on Fox in 1993-2002 and spawned two feature films.

Duchovny’s other Emmy nominations were for outstanding guest actor in a comedy series for appearances on HBO’s “The Larry Sanders Show,” which starred Shandling, and ABC’s “Life with Bonnie.”

Born Aug. 7, 1960 in New York City, Duchovny received a bachelor’s degree from Princeton and a master’s degree in English literature from Yale and was studying for a doctorate when he decided to pursue a career in acting.

Duchovny made his film debut in the 1988 romantic comedy “Working Girl,” playing a friend of the character portrayed by Melanie Griffith. His pre-“X-Files” television roles included transvestite Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Denise/Dennis Bryson on “Twin Peaks” and narrator of the erotic Showtime anthology series, “Red Shoe Diaries.”

Duchovny’s first post-“X-Files” series-starring role was troubled novelist Hank Moody in the 2007-14 Showtime comedy-drama “Californication.” His NBC period police drama “Aquarius” will return for a second season this year.

Duchovny’s other film credits include “Kalifornia,” “The Rapture,” “Julia Has Two Lovers,” “Chaplin,” “Beethoven,” “Evolution,” “Return To Me,” “Playing God” and “Full Frontal.”
