David Duchovny Would Go Gay for Robert Pattinson, Or: How to Backpack on Twilight‘s Buzz

It’s not just Robert Pattinson, Kellan Lutz, Kristin Stewart, and Taylor Lautner benefiting from Twilight buzz. As any blogger knows, a single post about the movie franchise is an invitation to get linked on rabid fan message boards for an influx of traffic. But that’s not where the Twilight economy stops. In fact, any one can benefit from namedropping the film, and if you say nice things, the legions of Twilight fanatics will instantly become your fanatics. Like David Duchovny.

The Californication star isn’t stupid. He knows tossing a bone to Twilight will generate press. Especially when he says he’d go gay for any of the stars, “the wolves, the vampires, they’re all fantastic.” Cue fanboys instantly Googling “David Duchovny” and finding about about this 1990s show The X-Files. That, and finding out Duchovny is a raging sex addict who would go gay for Marc Cherry.

But that comment about Woody Allen being “one of a long list of men I might go gay for”? It’s not gonna get you cast in a Woody Allen film, bud.
