The folks over at Archer finally made this happen! Burt Reynolds will be a guest star in the third season of FX’s critically acclaimed animated series. In the past when FanBolt has spoken to series creator Adam Reed, he’s always told us that Burt Reynolds would be his ultimate guest star pick! So now that he’s signed on, who will will Reynolds play?
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.”
