At Comic-Con yesterday, I had the honor of sitting down with Archer's creator, Adam Reed, and his cast of amazing voice actors. Up first, as seen below? Chris Parnell, who cracked me up with his story about wanting to dress as Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones for the event.
The voice of Cyril Figgis and perhaps the most hilarious character on 30 Rock, Dr. Spaceman, Parnell was one of the nicest, most laid back guys on the planet. He didn't have a lot to reveal about his character's role in season three, but he shared some fun facts about himself, such as his interest in remote control helicopters.Shortly after, Amber Nash, the voice of Pam, sat down to join us. The actress revealed a great deal about the voice acting process and Reed's involvement. Her hopes for season three? To go further into Pam's past, including some time in prison. Maybe that's where she got her sweet ink?
The unbelievably gorgeous and hilarious Aisha Tyler came next. She was right at home at Comic-Con, sharing her love of video games and her lack of actual man hands in real life.
After my crush departed the star himself, H. Jon Benjamin, sat down. The voice of Sterling was hilariously self-deprecating as he talked about his show and revealed who he thought to be the worst person on the series: his mother.
To conclude the press room, Adam Reed and Judy Greer (Cheryl/Carol) joined us for a combo interview. The two hysterically interviewed each other, discussing Greer's attempts to pitch her own show to networks.
Starting next week, when I have time to sit down at my iMac, I'll try and put up some video clips and more details from the cast and crew. Stay tuned!
