"Sources close to the "The X-Files 2" production have informed us that extras are being told that they are playing 'Newfies' i.e from Newfoundland and are being asked to bring swimsuits for a particular scene being shot on a reservation in Mount Currie (which does not have a pool.) It is likely that since pre production started well before principal photography that FOX had a tank built for the scene. Duchovny, Anderson and Xzibit have all been spotted on set."
X-Files News has unveiled a couple of photos from the film, including casting information:
- Billy Connelly is Father Joe
- Amanda Peet is Assistant Special Agent in Charge
- Xzibit is Agent Drummy
- The character Monica is being played by the waitress in The Post-Modern Prometheus
- Steve Kiziak is back as David Duchovny's stand-in (stunt double)
- Mr. Bobby Wingood is a reference to actor David Duchovny (fake name)
- Marilyn Ramsey may be Gillian Anderson's fake name (not confirmed)
