Sterling Archer Joins Movember Movement with Dashing 'Stache


That five o'clock shadow creeping across Sterling Archer's chiseled face is no new disguise or carefully considered grooming statement. The world's most cunning and dangerous spy is on a new mission and the stakes couldn't be higher. Sterling Archer, for the first time, is growing a moustache to promote men's health awareness during the annual Movember campaign to support the Movember Foundation. The title character in FX's hit comedy Archer says it's a natural move, as he is always trying to improve on his own health: "Like, this month I've cut out gummy bears from my scotch drinking."

Now everyone can support Archer's quest. Donations to the Movember Foundation can be made through Archer's personal Movember Ambassador page: http://mobro.co/sterlingarcher. If you want to memorialize Sterling's mission, the FX Shop is offering an exclusive Archer "Movember" T-Shirt. Not only will your wardrobe get a dash of awesome, but all profits will be donated to the Movember Foundation.

To date, the Movember Foundation has raised over $559 million and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries by raising awareness about prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. Some 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide in response to the Foundation's challenge to grow a 'stache during Movember (formerly known as November).

Archer returns to FX in January 2015 for its sixth season. FX has ordered 13 episodes for both the sixth and a seventh seasons of the Emmy and Annie Award nominated animated hit comedy series. Archer was created by Adam Reed and is executive produced by Reed and Matthew Thompson at Floyd County Productions.

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 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/ possibly clone of himself, Krieger.

The series is produced by FX Productions.
