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."

Latest 'Dancing With the Stars' Cast Rumors: Queen Latifah, Snooki, Tiffani Amber Thiessen

Queen Latifah, Snooki, Tiffani Thiessen, Dancing With the StarsDerek Hough announced Friday that he was returning to 'Dancing With the Stars' after taking the spring season off, and now TMZ is reporting that he'll be joined by several famous women.

According to TMZ, Queen Latifah, Tiffani Amber Thiessen and 'Jersey Shore' star Snooki will all compete for the mirrorball trophy on Season 13 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' Although these are only rumors, TMZ has been right before. Besides, Us Weekly reported on the Snooki rumor a few weeks ago.

Elsewhere in the 'DWTS' rumor mill are Christina Milian, Rob Kardashian (both named in the Us Weekly report) and Lindsay Lohan's mom, Dina. Though we're pretty sure the Kardashian one is true, we're a little skeptical of the latter -- especially since producers have apparently decreed that they only want bigger name stars this fall.

Queen Latifah Caught With Val, Or Close Enough for the Paparazzi, on 'Single Ladies' (VIDEO)

Queen Latifah, 'Single Ladies'Just when Val was hoping she could put this whole gay rumor with her old college roommate Sharon Love behind her on 'Single Ladies' (Mon., 9PM ET on VH1), the paparazzi showed up and ruin everything.

Of course, when Sharon -- guest star Queen Latifah -- started brushing wool off of Val's rear end, what did they expect to happen?

Sharon was actually hoping to push the gay angle as a career booster. She had her eye on the black, big-boned woman-sized hole in the daytime television landscape and declared that "gay is the new black."

But Val is trying to make things work with Jerry, which isn't made easier by that picture of her and Sharon on the cover of a tabloid magazine with the headline 'Sharon & Val Caught in the Act During a Sexy Shopping Spree!' We love how the details are completely made up.

Queen Latifah Guests on 'Single Ladies,' Drops a Bombshell Secret About Val (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 5th 2011 5:42AM
Queen Latifah, 'Single Ladies'College is a lot like Las Vegas for many people. What happened there, they'd really rather stay there. But, if secrets are going to come out, you'd probably rather it didn't happen via a news telecast. Unfortunately for Val on 'Single Ladies' (Mon., 9PM ET on VH1), that's exactly where her dirty laundry aired.

Apparently, Sharon Love -- played by series executive producer Queen Latifah -- and her on-air cohort didn't realize they were still on the air after she teased a story about women sleeping with one another, but not defining themselves as lesbians.

And, of course, the cameras kept rolling as she told him that she had in fact slept with a woman in her past, her college roommate Val. Cue Val walking into the room to meet the stunned expressions of Keisha and April.

Friends New and Old Trying to Bury the Past on 'Single Ladies' (VIDEO)

'Single Ladies'VH1 gets scripted with the premiere of 'Single Ladies' (Mon., 8PM ET on VH1) from Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit Entertainment. The comedy features Stacey Dash, LisaRaye McCoy and Charity Shea as three friends, each on the lookout for true love.

April (Shea) believes she's found it, but worries that her more wild past might come back to haunt her; particularly a fling with the mayor. Luckily, when the story breaks about the mayor having a mistress, it turns out to be someone else. But if you think that will get April to straighten out her ways, you're probably sorely mistaken.

When Val (Dash) opens her own boutique, the friends meet Christina (Kassandra Clement), who turns out to be even wilder than any of them. "I get engaged a lot," she told them at one point after a breakup. "I actually left the last one at the altar."

Queen Latifah talks about Oprah Winfrey on 'The View'Queen Latifah was part of the tapings for 'Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular,' a two-part series finale. The first part aired yesterday, the second airs today, final show tomorrow. On today's edition of 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Latifah said of the show was beautiful, emotional and fun, and that she was actually a bit nervous to take part in it.

Latifah appeared with Halle Berry and Katie Holmes to pay tribute to Oprah Winfrey. "I don't usually get nervous at things like that," she said, "but to walk out there with Halle and Katie and deliver our initial, you know, sort of speech, I was like, 'OK, you've got to get down those stairs, don't trip! Do a good job, really show up for her."

Latifah said there was also a bit of melancholy to the proceedings, as Winfrey said goodbye to the show and her fans. She's not sure Winfrey was completely settled it for herself, but said it looked like she had a blast.

Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon Race Each Other on Trikes (VIDEO)

Queen Latifah, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'We demand a rematch and a new race track! Queen Latifah faced off against Jimmy Fallon in a trike race on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM on NBC), and while it was a lot of fun, the track itself left a lot to be desired.

Sure, it was fun seeing them circle the studio, but with narrow hallways and doorways to navigate, they were essentially limited to single-file racing. Imagine if a NASCAR race track were the width of a single car. No one would be able to pass, so whichever car got off to a quick start was going to win.

That's what happened here as Fallon took an early lead and there simply wasn't room for Latifah to get around him at virtually any point. Okay, we admit that we've probably thought about this way too hard considering it was just something fun for the show to do. But wouldn't some real competitive drama have made it even more fun and exciting?

Queen Latifah Gives Jay Leno Friendship -- and Spelling -- Advice (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Jan 5th 2011 4:55AM
Queen Latifah Advises Leno on 'Tonight'Jay Leno needed some advice for a (hypothetical, we assume) particular relationship issue. His guest on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Queen Latifah, proved to be an unconventional counselor.

He asked what she'd do if a best friend's wife was seen with another guy. Would she tell him? "I would probably tell her to tell him," Latifah said diplomatically.

Leno responded, "Suppose she goes ... 'You mind your own business! You stay out of our life!'" Latifah then joked, "That's when I threaten, 'Look, you better tell him, [or] I'm gonna cut cho a--.'" The host pretended to write down her exact words ("... cut yo a--"), and she corrected him. "No, cut cho -- c-h-o..."

Queen Latifah Has a 'No-Die' Clause in Her Movie Contracts (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Apr 12th 2010 5:09PM
Queen Latifah is a rarity in today's Hollywood: She has a no-die clause put in every one of her contracts. What does that mean? It means she can't be killed off in a movie. According to Latifah, who appeared on Monday's 'The Martha Stewart Show' (weekdays, syndicated), she got killed off so many times in the beginning of her career -- and did it so well -- that she was afraid that she would be typecast. And if she kept dying in her films -- well, that meant no sequels.
