We recently sat down with the spy extraordinaire himself, H. Jon Benjamin to discuss Season 6 of Archer, the possibility of a live action version of the animated series and how they plan to wrap things up in the finale airing Thursday at 10pm on FX.
Archer’s Lana Kane has had to work through some horrendous missions while pregnant and now, in season six of Archer (Thursdays, FOX, 10/9C), she’s a working mom in a workplace where no one is anywhere near what you might describe as a good babysitter. Even better, this week, she gets to introduce the father of her child, Sterling Archer, to her parents
Last week, a group of bloggers/journalists got to chat with Aisha Tyler about Lana trying to handle life and work as a working mother – and tease the upcoming meeting between Archer and her parents. While we were sitting in our homes/offices, Tyler spoke with us from her car. It was interesting…
Judy Greer is practically the definition of a working actor – she’s got 98 credits to her name, beginning with a small role on an Early Edition episode in 1997. Since then, she’s been pretty much a fixture in films big and small, and on television (usually in series that were brilliant but cancelled).
Since 2009, she’s voiced everyone’s favorite huffing firebug billionaire receptionist/country-singer-wannabe, Carol/Cheryl/Cherlene on TV’s best animated series, Archer (FX, Thursday, 10/9C). Recently, I had the pleasure of taking part in a conference call Q&A with Greer about what has turned into her longest-running gig. She was, as always, charming and enthusiastic.
Archer (Thursdays, 10/9C) returns to FX this evening. Earlier I had the opportunity to sit in on a conference call Q&A session with Executive Producer Matt Thompson. Not unlike a lot of folks we talk with, Thompson doesn’t like to give too much away about what’s coming up in his show – but he does have fun talking about behind the scenes stuff (it’s almost awe-inspiring how many guest stars come to the show as a result of the sharing of alcohol at industry parties, for instance).
To be fair, Thompson is really good at teasing upcoming events of Archer (he could write tags for Marvel’s SHIELD, no problem). So we get to learn that some favorite characters (Bionic Barry, and sexy/deadly Katya) are returning and that we are finally going to meet Pam’s sister. We also learn about the importance of continuity – and the strange forms it takes.
It’s one of the more entertaining Q&As I’ve done. See what I mean following the jump.
Well kids it has been a wild and crazy ride! The first two days of New York Comic Con have been a whorl wind of excitement and running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off! lol But seriously folks I’ve had a chance to chat with the stars of some of your favorite shows and you wont be disappointed!
