Judy Greer Jokes About Her Roles on 'Archer' and 'Two and a Half Men' (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 28th 2011 7:30PM
Judy Greer went on 'Good Day NY' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) to talk about her new film 'The Descendants,' but Greg Kelly told her that he liked her best as the voice of Cheryl Tunt on FX's animated series 'Archer.' As she was describing Cheryl's penchant for being strangled during sex, Greg interrupted her with a strange, guttural noise. "That was weird," she joked, as Kelly laughed awkwardly.

Rosanna Scotto stepped in and changed the subject to 'Two and a Half Men.' Greer talked about playing Bridget, Walden Schmidt's ex-wife, who he's still pining for. Kelly seemed to find an on-screen romance between Greer and Ashton Kutcher hard to believe. "Ashton Kutcher is?" he asked incredulously.

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."

'Archer' Has to Choose Between Saving Rip Riley and Saving Booze (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 16th 2011 8:20AM
'Archer'It was a life or death choice on 'Archer' (Thurs., 10:30PM on FX) as our hero had to choose between saving Rip Riley's life or saving some bottles of booze.

After a terrifying plane crash into the sea, Archer swims back into the wreckage and rescues three bottles of hooch as well as a life raft. Meanwhile, an unconscious Rip is floating helplessly as a large shark starts circling him.

As the shark begins its attack run, Archer takes Rip's gun and tries to shoot it. Only to realize that he can't fire the gun properly because he's got his hands full. He just can't manage the gun, Rip and the booze.

So what's he going to let go of? We think we saw him waver a bit, but he eventually makes the right choice, lets go of the bottles and shoots the shark.

by Kim Potts, posted Jun 14th 2011 10:30AM
'Jon Benjamin Has a Van' ... and what a van it is! The voice behind 'Archer' and 'Bob's Burgers,' H. Jon Benjamin (actually, he's dropped the 'H' here ... see below) is starring, voice and body, in the new Comedy Central fake news/sketch comedy series (premieres Tues., June 14, 10:30PM ET; moves to its regular timeslot on Wed., June 15, 10:30PM ET).

The show finds the frequently animated actor and comedian roving around in his super cool van in the pursuit of stories -- like the man who has pre-traumatic stress disorder, old people trying to use the Internet and a war between the gangsters of Little Italy and their miniature enemies in little Little Italy.

'Archer' Season 2, Episode 13 Recap (Season Finale)

by Maureen Ryan, posted Apr 22nd 2011 10:30AM
['Archer' - 'Double Trouble']

What a terrific ending to the second season of 'Archer.' It was as if the whole episode were designed just for me.

We had the whole gang together trading quips and barbs furiously, we had actual stakes for Archer (his real love for Katya threw everyone at ISIS off balance) and we even had an extra helping of Krieger and his anime girlfriend.

What more could anyone want?

Talking TV Podcast Talks 'Treme,' 'Archer,' 'Game of Thrones,' 'Doctor Who' and More

by Maureen Ryan, posted Apr 20th 2011 1:00PM
Ryan McGee and I planned to do a 45-minute podcast last night. Whoops!

We ended up with an 80-minute Talking TV podcast, and part of the reason the discussion lasted so long is because many of the same themes came up throughout the podcast. Plus there were just a lot of news items and new programs to get through.

This week on the podcast, we talked about 'Doctor Who,' 'Cougar Town,' 'Archer' (which has its season finale Thursday), the 'Game of Thrones' renewal and the various critical and fan responses to that drama, and also 'Treme,' which returns on HBO Sunday. Running times are below.

'Archer' Season 2, Episode 12 Recap

['Archer' - 'White Nights']

Show of hands here -- who's obsessed with finding out who Luke Skywalker's Sterling Archer's real father is?

Yeah, me neither. I suppose the trip to Russia had a few dividends -- hearing Archer's thoughts on shoe-and-suit combinations is never a waste of time -- but all things considered, I wish we'd spent more time back at ISIS, watching Krieger make animal-boy hybrids or checking in on Cheryl's dwindling stocks of sniffable glue.

'Archer' Season 2, Episode 11 Recap

['Archer' - 'Jeu Monegasque']

Sacre bleu! 'Archer' went all the way to Monaco and engaged in some classic spy shenanigans. Racing in the Monaco Grand Prix! Stealing (back) bearer bonds! A casino heist!

Did these action-packed events happen in the course of a spy mission or protection gig? No, the gang wasn't protecting some tycoon or gaining some valuable intelligence. They were there to obtain one of Malory's sex tapes. Obviously.

• Ray, along with Pam, is one of the few ISIS employees who has something approaching a moral center.

JustifiedFX isn't KOing all of its shows -- the cable network has picked up 'Justified' and 'Archer' for third seasons.

'Justified' will return for a 13-episode run

"'Justified' was a critically acclaimed hit series in its first season, but the show has far surpassed our expectations this season," John Landgraf, president and general manager of FX, said in a statement. "Creatively, the show is on a roll. The performances of Timothy Olyphant, Walton Goggins, Margo Martindale and the entire cast are extraordinary.

"Graham Yost and his team of writers are delivering some of the richest stories anywhere on TV and are doing a brilliant job of being true to Elmore Leonard's original character, Raylan Givens," he said. "We couldn't be more proud of the work everyone has done."

'Archer' Season 2, Episode 8 Recap

by Maureen Ryan, posted Mar 17th 2011 10:30PM
['Archer' - 'Stage Two']

A rather strange outing for our hero this week, as he grappled with an enemy more insidious than than an evil arms dealers and more dangerous than Krieger's hybrid goat-boy.

It was interesting to see the 'Archer' characters, especially Sterling, grapple with a real dilemma that they couldn't shoot or drink their way out of. Of course plenty of liquor was involved, but a vulnerable Archer came close to experiencing human emotions like regret, fear and love.

Talk about a Danger Zone!
