Reynolds will voice himself on the third season of FX's animated series as a love interest for Malory (Jessica Walter).
Archer's Adam Reed admitted to Zap2it that he was a massive fan of the veteran actor.
"It was a surreal experience being in the room with Burt Reynolds, my childhood hero. Just hearing him read the stuff that I wrote, it was pretty great," he said.
Reed also explained that Reynolds tweaked the script a little to "make it more self-deprecating".
He continued: "[In one example], Archer says, 'Operation C.I.A.' is why I became a spy'. And [Reynolds is] like, 'Really? I thought that movie sucked'."
Other guest stars in the new episodes include Bryan Cranston and Jack McBrayer.
Archer returns to FX on Thursday, January 19.
