David Duchovny in Goats

One of the stranger entries on the Sundance 2012 line-up in the Premieres category announced yesterday was a film titled Goats, indeed involving goats, and a Goat Man of sorts, played by David Duchovny. This ensemble comedy is actually about a 15-year-old kid, played by Graham Phillips who you might recognize from Evan Almighty or Ben 10 or "The Good Wife", who leaves his Tuscon home to attend Gates Academy, an East Coast prep school. The cast includes Vera Farmiga, Ty Burrell, Keri Russell, Minnie Driver and Justin Kirk. We've got four first look photos via Collider to go along with the exciting Sundance news.

First Look - David Duchovny & Graham Phillips in Goats

Here's the description from Sundance: Ellis (Phillips) leaves his unconventional desert home to attend the disciplined and structured Gates Academy. There, he re-connects with his estranged father and for the first time questions the family dynamics. But IMDb says, this means leaving behind Wendy, his flaky, new age mother and the only real father he has ever known, "Goat Man" - who I believe is that crazy bearded fellow you see above. Goats is directed by Christopher Neil, a fresh acting coach-turned-filmmaker, from a screenplay based on Mark Poirier's 2001 novel adapted by himself. We'll try and catch this up at Sundance.

    Phillip Dunfee and Agent Mulder in a film together? This will be awesome. I am glad to see Duchvony in a role that actually sounds good
