Burt Reynolds to guest star on 'Archer'

burt-reynolds-getty.jpgLegendary actor Burt Reynolds is set to guest star on the animated program " Archer" when the series returns in early 2012.

Reynolds will play himself in the spy comedy. In the episode he will date Malory Archer ( Jessica Walter), but Sterling ( H. Jon Benjamin) is none to pleased about his mom's choice of boyfriends. But as fans of the show know, Malory has a bit of bad taste when it comes to men.

"Archer" creator Adam Reed says in a statement, "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."

In addition to his extensive work on the big screen, Reynolds has done work on TV animation as well. He recently guest-voiced on " American Dad!" and in 1997 lent his vocal chords to an episode of " King of the Hill."

The series is set to return to FX in mid-January.
