'Archer' going to space with Bryan Cranston

Archer

(FX)

The gravely tones of Walter White are coming to FX’s Archer.

Emmy winner Bryan Cranston will guest-star on the animated hit’s two-part season finale, part of which is set on the International Space Station. First reported by HuffPo and confirmed by FX, the actor will play Commander Drake, an “earnest, conscientious astronaut fighting to quell a mutiny on the space platform.”

So, yes, Sterling Archer will get his Moonraker on. Also guest-starring on the show’s third season: Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) and Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead). They join the previously announced Burt Reynolds – Arch’s hero – who guest-stars in the Jan. 19 midseason premiere playing himself. (I’ve seen the first four installments; they’re strong, especially episode 2, where Cyril is promoted to a field agent.)
