Lawless leaps to ‘X-Files’ gig

Thesp will appear in at least first 2 episodes

Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess”) has signed on for a multi-episode gig on the upcoming season of “The X-Files.”

Thesp is set to appear on the show’s first two episodes. There’s a chance she could do more segs, though nothing’s been decided yet.

The show’s season preem is Nov. 4. Details regarding the Lawless character are being kept under wraps.

“We’re thrilled to have an opportunity to work with Lucy, whose work we’ve admired for a long time,” said “X-Files” executive producer Frank Spotnitz. “We think we’ve found an interesting and unexpected way to have her join the family.”

“Xena” wrapped up its successful syndie run this summer.

Deal was brokered by Lawless’ reps at Talent Entertainment Group.
