"I think the only person on the planet who's a bigger fan of Burt Reynolds than me is Sterling Archer," Archer creator Adam Reed 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."
Reynolds guest-starred on Burn Notice last year and will next appear in the CMT TV movie Reel Love, which premieres next month. Season 3 of Archer premieres in January.
