all i know is that Chris Parnell would still be great a Cyril.

and the blonde from workaholics would be Pam.

damn this is hard.
sterling is hard to cast. paul rudd? carell? shite i probably need to think outside the box.carell could play cyril too.

will ferrel or john c reily for Dr. Krieger is the only one that i thought was a slam dunk.



and i know she does the voice and it may be cheating but only jessica walter can play mallory. maybe christine baranski or some shite but no, walter has to play her.

it'd also be hard to find someone other than aisha tyler for lana.

Aiisha Tyler said she would fight to the death anyone that tried to take the role of Lana away from her

They all said whid they pick. Benjamin said The Guy from Mad Men would be great but you cant do archer without his voice imo

I know.

I honestly think Christian Bale could pull off Archer pretty well. His character in American Psycho is similar in some ways to Archer already.

Just pretty up H John Benjamin for Archer. You have to have the voice.

Aisha Tyler is hot enough to play Lana.

Blonde from Workaholics for Pam

Cyril can be played by Parnell

The woman who plays Sterling's mom can be the same person too.

That's all I have. Pretty much the same cast.

Jon Hamm

I'd also say it would be pretty hard for someone to play Cheryl. No one can play the slutty, stupid, and heavily imbalanced secretary better than Judy Greer.

Jon Hamm would be a great Archer. He's actually hysterical, though you wouldn't know it from Mad Men. He hosted or guest starred on SNL and blew it up.

Aisha Tyler SHOULD play Lana. She IS Lana. And I don't mean she plays Lana on the show, I think she embodies the character or could, at the very least, pull it off quite well.

Chris Parnell should play Cyril. He plays the bumbling oaf oddball well.

I don't really like the idea of John C. Reilly or Will Ferrell playing Krieger. Both are too over the top. I would actually prefer to see Rudd or somebody with a little more subtlety play Krieger.

Barry should be played by Chris Pine or Ryan Reynolds, who are basically interchangeable.

Pam would be perfectly played by Melissa McCarthy.

Carol/Cheryl should be played by Kristen Wiig, Judy Greer, or someone similar.

Malory should be Jessica Walter.

Ray should be Sam Rockwell or something.

The problem is still the voice. You just cant do it without the voice. But Hamm would e the best choice if you did it anyway

I feel like Krieger would have to be played by an unknown guy that can pull it off. All these big actors everyone is saying have their own concrete comedic style that are nothing like Kieger. Reily and Farrel would butcher that role and i like those guys

I agree with the earlier post, Jillian from Workaholics would be 100xs more perfect for the role.

Agree with the rest

Hrrrrmmmmm... Now that's interesting. He may be too good looking... and too young looking. He looks 12, despite being in his 30s. But his brand of humor would suit the show well.

I don't know Workaholics well enough to suggest otherwise.

Yeah looks wise Archer reminds me of a younger Pierce Brosnan. Not sure who fits that bill but the voice is most crucial. Have to dub in his voice lol
