Adam Reed’s “Archer” is obviously heavily influenced by James Bond movies. Sterling Archer is a mixture of James Bond, Inspector Clouseau, and maybe a dash of Gob Bluth. I love Bond films (and I’m stoked about a blond Javier Bardem starring as the villain in Bond 23), but while James Bond has a certain suave charm, how much more entertaining would that character be if he delivered Sterling Archer’s lines? I mean, would it kill James Bond to have a sense of humor or hold his liquor a little less well?
This is the James Bond I’d love to see on the big screen: One written by Adam Reed. It’d look a little something like this.
