CASTING NEWS: Burt Reynolds To Play Himself On ARCHER

Iconic actor Burt Reynolds has signed on as a guest star in the third season of FX’s critically acclaimed hit animated soap opera ARCHER. Reynolds will play himself in an episode titled “The Man From Jupiter,” a reference to Reynolds’ home of Jupiter, Florida. In the episode, which will air in January, Reynolds dates Agent Sterling Archer’s mother and boss, Malory – much to Sterling’s dismay.

"I think the only person on the planet who's a bigger fan of Burt Reynolds than me is Sterling Archer," said ARCHER creator Adam Reed. "Archer constantly tries to imitate Burt and always raves about Burt's movies and all-around awesomeness. So to have Burt recording voice-overs for the show was just amazing."

How will Archer take to the one person he worships most (Reynolds) doing the one thing that makes him sick to even think about (dating his mom)? It's going to be fun finding out!
