Burt Reynolds on Archer

Yes, you heard it right. Burt Reynolds has signed on to play himself in an upcoming episode of the very funny FX network show, Archer.

According to EW, our favorite international man of mystery, Sterling Archer (voiced by the incomparable H. Jon Benjamin), will get to meet Burt Reynolds in the upcoming third season. Like, actually Burt Reynolds because the man has signed on to provide the voice for himself… yes, Burt Reynolds is voicing Burt Reynolds, who happens to be one of Sterling’s all-time idols. However, things aren’t quite so ideal when his idol and his mom, Mallory (Jessica Walters), start seeing each other romantically.

On the casting, creator Adam Reed said, “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.” Archer returns January 2012 to FX.
