In 1998, “The Larry Sanders Show”. “Weʹre a superstar short,” Larry grouses as he reviews the guest list for his final show. Kevin Costner has dropped out because he slipped and fell during the filming of his new, entirely on-ice movie. Someone suggests David Duchovny, but Larry winces. In the past, Duchovny has been so alarmingly tender to Larry offstage that…the host shudders to think. But after several humiliating turndowns, Larry warily phones the X-Files star. “Meet me at the Bel-Air Hotel,” the exquisitely ambiguous Duchovny says. Larry, agonizing between his craven need to seem important on TV and a raging homosexual panic, drags himself to Duchovnyʹs hotel room. Duchovny greets him wearing only a bathrobe. As Larry makes his pitch, Duchovny crosses his legs. Was that — no, impossible. He recrosses his legs. Could that have been — no way. Then his legs part again, wider than ever, and Larryʹs eyes pop as the battle between his basic instincts goes nuclear.
