Burt Reynolds will make a cameo appearance on the third season of FX's animated series Archer.

The star of Smokey and the Bandit, The Cannonball Run and Deliverance will play himself in an episode titled "The Man From Jupiter," set to air in January. The title is a reference to Reynold's home of Jupiter, Florida.

According to Archer creator Adam Reed, "I think the only person on the planet who's a bigger fan of Burt Reynolds than me is Sterling Archer. 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."

It isn't the first time Reynolds has provided his voice for an animated series. He's previously recorded for King of the Hill and American Dad!
