David Duchovny will make his stage debut in Neil LaBute's "The Break of Noon."

The "X-Files" actor will play John Smith in the seventh play by LaBute, whose last play, "Reasons to be Pretty" was nominated for the Tony Award for best play.

Performances of "The Break of Noon," which is set amid an office shooting, will begin at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on Oct. 28.

A New York native, the 49-year-old Duchovny hasn't previously acted on stage in any productions of note. He currently stars in the Showtime series "Californication."
