The Archer showrunner has called working with Burt Reynolds "surreal".

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.
