Canadian Actor and Acting teacher William B. Davis, best known as the X-Files infamous arch-villain "Cigarette Smoking Man", talks about his new memoirs, "Where There's Smoke: Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man" with Think Again! TV Host Justin Trottier.

Davis discusses his career, how he came out as an atheist in a 1950s rural Ontario high school, why science is a better sell than skepticism, his plans he has for transitioning towards advancing education in climate science and evolution, and, provocatively, how he enjoys arguing that Mulder was the true X-Files villain!

The two also chat about why, despite arguments to the contrary by his hero Richard Dawkins, the X-Files seems to have such lasting appeal - even to skeptics.
