Casting Call: Live Action <em>Archer</em> Movie

Helen Mirren - Malory Archer -

Mallory Archer – Hellen Mirren

If I cared about what you do on the weekend I’d stick a shotgun in my mouth and pull the trigger with my toes.

Malory Archer is the H.B.I.C. (yeah, I said it!) or maybe the Chief Executive Officer of ISIS. Malory reigns over her employees with kantian ethics and a booze-filled logic. Malory is the emasculating mother to Sterling Archer, who not only gave him the middle name “Malory” but also the codename “Duchess” after her late afghan hound by the same name.

The person who invokes the most similar personality and brings the right look would be Helen Mirren. Take her British classiness and her “Red” espionage skills and you have an acutely accurate live-action Malory Archer. She’ll just have to work on her American socialite accent.

Sidenote: This may have been Ryan’s pick… I was going with either Diane Lane or Dame Judi Dench.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.

I disagree, Sterling would be perfectly faced by Henry Cavill, but you’d still have to dub any actors voice with H. Jon Benjamin.


Given Henry Cavill’s recent performance in “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” I can see that he has the potential to be one “super” (I couldn’t help myself) Archer. Given that “Archer” is loosely modeled on/Inspired by the original “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” TV series and classic 007 films, I’d say you have a lot to support your case. I just like Dylan McDermott because he has the look, a gravelly voice (although I would also appreciate a H. Jon Benjamin over-dub), and a prick-ish on-screen persona that seems to fit in with the Archer character. What’d you think about some of… Read more »

Lauren Ash would also be a good Pam.


Cheryl did not change her name to appease her co-workers! She changed it to amuse herself with whatever whim she had a the moment. The side effect was confused co-workers.
