"Archer" (Thurs., 10p.m. EST on FX) fans have been longing for the Season 3 premiere ever since it was announced that Archer's favorite actor, Burt Reynolds, would be making a guest appearance as himself.
After meeting Reynolds in a bar, Archer's relationship with him got off to a rocky start when he fainted upon discovering that the actor was dating his mom, Malory.
But it turned out that Reynolds was an asset to Archer and his mom in more ways than one.
Pursued by a Cuban hit squad, a totally unflappable Reynolds put his impressive "Cannonball Run" driving skills to good use during a high-speed car chase, and he saved the team from disaster.
Could this be the start of something beautiful for Archer, Burt and Malory? Find out on "Archer," Thursday nights at 10 p.m. EST on FX.
