Archer producers Adam Reed and Matt Thompson discussed the future of the animated spy show in an interview with the Daily Beast. They say that if a feature film version of the TV show was to ever happen that it would probably be a live-action film that would come after the show went off the air.
“It’s all up to whatever Adam [Reed] wants, to do, but he and I have definitely talked about it,” Thompson said. “We vacillate between if you do it, why are you doing the TV show? And should it be live-action, or should it be cartoon?”
Thompson also revealed their dream candidate to play Archer in the danger zone of Hollywood movies.
“It’s Jon Hamm. If Archer goes live-action, I do believe it will be Jon Hamm. Maybe you could do it with Jon Benjamin’s voice coming out of him? I don’t know. Adam is always like, ‘I don’t know if I want the movie to be live-action because I want it to be Jon Benjamin!’ But if it is live-action—and if it is not Jon Benjamin—it is our greatest hope that it would be Jon Hamm. I can say that with confidence.”
Hamm would be a perfect match to put on a tactleneck and be the suave, heavy-drinking master spy.
Hamm is already familiar with Archer, he previously appeared on the show, playing a deranged sea base captain in the finale of season four.
It makes so much sense that there’s even a Tumblr dedicated to Hamm as Sterling. “Sterling Archer Draper Pryce,” mashes up Hamm’s Don Draper from Mad Men with quotes from Archer.
