Haglund is also a stand-up comedian, specializing in improvisational comedy (formerly with Vancouver TheatreSports League.) In addition to The X-Files, he played the voice of Sid in Tom Sawyer, Haglund also portrayed Langly in the spin-off The Lone Gunmen, which aired thirteen episodes in 2001.

Early life and education[edit]

Haglund was born in Oakbank, Canada, and is the son of a structural engineer.[2]

Career[edit]

Haglund appears briefly in a documentary-style production called "From Here to Andromeda", released in 2007. The production has UFOs and extraterrestrials as a central theme.[3] On October 30, 2009, he hosted Ghost Adventures Live on the Travel Channel.[4] In a throwback to X-Files, Dean appeared in episode 95 of Bones as restaurant owner Blaine Miller in Roswell NM where Booth and Bones are sent to investigate a possible extraterrestrial sighting.[5] He was on the advisory board of Sci-Fest, the first annual Los Angeles Science Fiction One-Act Play Festival, held in May 2014.[6]

In June 2015, Haglund emigrated to Sydney, Australia with his girlfriend and their two dogs, and now lives in Newtown.[7] Haglund's relocation to Australia nearly resulted in the removal of a planned cameo by the Lone Gunmen in the episode "Babylon" of the revived tenth season of The X-Files; however, he was informed by Bruce Harwood that the producers were looking for him, and contacted them to film the appearance.[8] He currently hosts the Chillpak Hollywood Hour podcast,[9] where he discusses all things Hollywood with independent filmmaker Phil Leirness. As well as periodically hosting episodes of the X-Files on the YOUTOO television channel.
