We recently chatted with Saturday Night Light alum Chris Parnell, who now lends his voice to Cyril Figgus in FX’s Archer.
His calm, cool and collected persona fits Cyril’s character perfectly and is quite the antithesis of the boisterish character of Sterling Archer (played by the endlessly funny H. Jon Benjamin).
We chatted about Archer and Parnell gives his thoughts on how the cast is able to gel so well, especially considering that they all record their lines separately. He also shares some thoughts on the imminent end of NBC’s 30 Rock, where he guests as Dr. Leo Spaceman.
Archer’s fourth season doesn’t premiere until January, but check out some interviews we have with Parnell’s costars Benjamin and Aisha Tyler as well as a rundown of the Archer panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
