FXX to Air 'Archer's Greatest Loves' Mini-Marathon

In anticipation of Archer returning for its seventh season next year, Sterling Archer is reflecting on some of his greatest loves from the past with a special mini-marathon airing Saturday, September 26 from 10 p.m. - 1 a.m. ET/PT on FXX.

Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that revolves around an international spy agency and the lives of its employees. Although their work of espionage, reconnaissance missions, wiretapping and undercover surveillance is daunting and dangerous, every covert operation and global crisis is actually just another excuse for the staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain.

The Emmy and Annie Award nominated animated comedy series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as the highly skilled and incredibly vain master spy "Sterling Archer;" Aisha Tyler as Archer's fellow agent and ex-girlfriend, "Lana Kane;" Jessica Walter as Archer's domineering mother and spy agency director, "Malory Archer;" Chris Parnell as the easily intimidated comptroller-turned secret agent "Cyril Figgis;" Judy Greer as Malory's loquacious, dingbat secretary, "Cheryl;" Amber Nash as the discordant director of human resources, "Pam Poovey;" Adam Reed as the gay voice of reason, "Ray Gillette;" and Lucky Yates as the spy agency's possibly mad scientist, "Krieger."

Archer was created by Adam Reed and is executive produced by Reed, Matt Thompson and Casey Willis at Floyd County Productions. The series is produced by FX Productions.

The Archer's Greatest Loves mini-marathon will feature the following episodes:

Emmy Winner Vincent Irizarry Joins 'Days of our Lives'

Vincent Irizarry
All My Children star Vincent Irizarry won a Daytime Emmy Award six years ago today, which makes it a great time to confirm that the former Guiding Light and Santa Barbara actor is joining the cast of Days of our Lives.

I teased Irizarry's casting in a recent blind item, which some of your figured out (you're good!). The "break out in song" clue threw some off, but whenever I see Vincent I can't help but sing "Almost Paradise," the love them of his GL character, Lujuck Luvanoczeck, with Beth Raines (Judi Evans, who now stars on Days as Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis).

Irizarry went on to play Dr. Scott Clark on Santa Barbara and later returned to Guiding Light as Nick McHenry Spaulding, before taking on the role of Dr. David Hayward on AMC. He also played David Chow on The Young and the Restless.

Stay tuned for information on Irizarry's new Days character. He joins a growing list of Emmy winners recently added to the show's cast, including A Martinez and Jordi Vilasuso.
