KNOWN ALIASES
T-1000 Subject proved his (liquid) mettle battling Arnold Schwarzenegger in T2.
DAVID SCATINO Subject played gambling-addicted sporting-goods-store owner on The Sopranos.
JACK RUCKER Subject appeared in Cop Land, as a corrupt lawman, a performance that intrigued X-Files creator Chris Carter.

X-FILES ALIAS: JOHN DOGGETT
Carter has said he named the character after former L.A. Dodgers commentator Jerry Doggett, who cohosted with Vin Scully, Dana Scully’s namesake. A veteran of the NYPD and the U.S. Marine Corps, the flinty agent will be a ”man’s man,” said Carter. He will also be a ”knee-jerk skeptic,” albeit one with a sense of humor. He will appear in all 20 episodes, helping Scully search for the abducted Mulder — presumably by going door-to-door with a photograph, asking, ”Have you seen this special agent?”

PREVIOUS EXPERIENCES WITH UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA
Had close encounters with aliens in 1993’s Fire in the Sky and 1998’s The Faculty; played opposite Demi Moore in Striptease.
