FX Gets Animated with 'Archer'

Some big names in comedy are getting the cartoon treatment in FX's new animated series Archer. The series premieres this Thursday Jan. 14 at 10pm.

Archer focuses on the arrogant jackass of a spy Sterling Archer (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin) who somehow manages to come off us lovable and laughable at the same time. He and his other colleagues at ISIS (The International Secret Intelligence Service) spend their days trying to "confuse, undermine, betray and royally screw each other." Not only is the character of Archer funny, it's the supporting cast of characters that get a ton of laughs.

Benjamin is joined by the voice talents of some heavy comedy hitters like Jessica Walter (Arrested Development), Aisha Tyler (The Soup), Chris Parnell (30 Rock, SNL) and Judy Greer (best friend in every movie ever made) and each one brings their own brand of laughs of their animated counterpart. Check out a clip from the series premiere...

Archer airs Thursday nights at 10pm on FX
