David talks about Cali some
Time Out New York: I hear you’re moving back to New York with your family this fall. How long has it been since you last lived here?
David Duchovny: Over 20 years. Has it changed?
TONY: Not at all. Especially not the East Village, where you grew up.
David Duchovny: [Laughs] Yeah, it’s very different. But the East Village was always struggling to have an identity. I think it always will.
TONY: Does this mean the title of Californication will be changing to Newyornication?
David Duchovny: No, but I never liked the title anyway, because I didn’t want the focus to be on sex. I thought fornication kind of did that. So I tried for a long time but couldn’t come up with a better title.
TONY: What about Pecs and the City?
David Duchovny: There is a bunch of sex in it, yeah, but the sex part is really a marketing notion. Because you can’t say, “Hey, watch this show because it’s intelligent and it’s funny in a way that you haven’t seen in a while.” Early on it was apparent to me that they were going to hang it on tits and ass even though that’s never what the show was to me. But whatever. Come for the tits, stay for the dialogue.
