Bryan Cranston can do anything he wants. His career-changing work on Breaking Bad has pushed the former Malcolm in the Middle star into Hollywood’s A-list. How does he choose to use this to his advantage? By lining up roles opposite Hollywood’s elite? Well, yeah. But also by guest starring on Archer.

Cranston will play an astronaut in this year’s two-part season finale. His character will fight to quell a mutiny aboard a space platform. I’m not really sure what a space platform is, though. Kind of like a diving board, but you jump into oblivion due to the lack of gravity? Maybe? I’m probably right. (Huffington Post)

Sterling Archer’s Hero, Burt Reynolds, To Appear In Season 3 http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sterling-archers-hero-burt-reynolds-to-appear-in-season-3/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sterling-archers-hero-burt-reynolds-to-appear-in-season-3/#comments Mon, 31 Oct 2011 19:43:09 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=234401 Burt Reynolds will play a guy trying to sleep with Archer's mom.

Burt Reynolds will be rearing his toupee’d head from semi-retirement to appear in an episode of Archer in the animated show’s upcoming third season. Burt Reynolds will play himself in the episode entitled “The Man from Jupiter.” (Burt Reynolds hails from Jupiter, Florida, you see.)

For those not familiar with the show, Sterling Archer, the show’s protagonist, is completely obsessed with Burt Reynolds, aping him in terms of ego and “cool”ness. On the show, Reynolds will be courting Archer’s mother, Mallory. The press release doesn’t divulge a whole lot more than that, but perhaps you could anticipate some conflict and humorous exchanges?

Archer’s third season will kick off in January on FX, allowing those unfamiliar plenty of time to bask in the rapid-fire snark of the first two season. I wouldn’t recommend going in cold, newbies. It’s just too much to handle.

The animated sitcom “Bob’s Burgers” has been a surprise success for FOX – not that it’s been a huge hit or anything, but given that it’s a funny comedy on FOX, the precedent is for it to achieve rock-bottom ratings and a devoted cult following that always brings up the show when it’s barely tangentially appropriate. And FOX is apparently happy enough with the show and its ratings to renew it for a second season, meaning fans of listening to H. Jon Benjamin‘s voice (and this should include everyone) will continue to have two ways of doing so for the immediate future.

This does come as a bit of a surprise, given that FOX has ordered two other animated shows, one of which is based on the movie Napoleon Dynamite which I’m sure will be a huge success as long as FOX perfects the technology of beaming TV shows backward in time. (Deadline)

Suit up, grab your weapons and check yourself for breast cancer. “Archer” officially got picked up for a third season. FX President John Landgraf recently announced a 16 episode order for the animated series starring H. Jon Benjamin, who between this and “Bob’s Burgers” is fast becoming the official voice of grown-up animation. I have no problem with this. In fact, give him a couple more shows.

One bit of strangeness: three of the half-hours will air after new “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” episodes. The pairing makes sense comedically, but wh break up the season like that? It’d be like breaking up Lana and Archer in the middle of a mission. Actually, breaking those two up would be a good idea, so that’s a bad analogy, but you know what I’m saying.

FX also announced the pickup of a new series called “Townies” by writers Scott Marder, Rob Rosell and David Hornsby (“It’s Always Sunny”). It’s about two 15-year-old BFFs who are raising themselves without parental supervision. So… party at those kids’ house. (Deadline)
