Simon Pegg wants to star in `X Files` role

London: Actor Simon Pegg says he wants a role in the new `The X-Files` movie.

A third installment of the paranormal investigation franchise is being developed, and the British actor is keen for a part, but only as long as original FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, played by David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson respectively, are included, reported Daily Star.

"I was a big fan of `The X Files` and I`ve become friends with Gillian since. I`ve always loved that show so it`s definitely something I`d consider," Pegg said.

"It`s a great story and it would be nice to see it continue but it has to be with David Duchovny and with Gillian," he added.

The show`s creator, Chris Carter, is also keen to write `Mission: Impossible -Ghost Protocol` star Pegg into a new script, and had considered him when making the second film, `The X-Files: I Want to Believe`, released in 2008.

"Gillian worked with Simon on a movie `How To Lose Friends And Alienate People` and told me that he was a big fan. We actually thought about putting him in the second movie, but there was no part for him. I certainly would think about him if we were to go forward in any way," Carter said.
