Burt Reynolds ArcherBurt Reynolds is going to mess with 'Archer.'

The legendary actor will voice himself in 'The Man From Jupiter,' a January episode during Season 3 of the hit FX series. The episode title is a reference to Reynolds' home in Jupiter, Fla.

Look for Reynolds to date Agent Sterling Archer's mother and boss, Malory. Archer won't be very pleased.

"I think the only person on the planet who's a bigger fan of Burt Reynolds than me is Sterling Archer," Adam Reed, creator of 'Archer,' said 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."
