We'd been fairly well sold on 'American Hororr Story' creator Ryan Muphy's sexy HBO drama pilot 'Open' by the addition of 'Fringe' star Anna Torv, but the latest bit of casting should really send genre fans over the edge. 'Archer' voice and 'The Talk' host Aisha Tyler has joined the pilot as well, but when can we expect a decision from HBO on the series?
Whether or not you've thought about the mad-cap "game show, but not quite" antics of 'Whose Line is It Anyway' in the last several years, The CW plans to revive the improv comedy series this summer. 'The Talk' and 'Archer' star Aisha Tyler will replace Drew Carey to lead the classic cast of Ryan Styles, Colin Mochrie, Wayne Brady and a weekly guest, but does the news have us all asking "who asked for this, anyway?"
Any 'Archer' fan well knows that a great deal of the show's success owes to its incredible voice cast, of which far more than mere voice goes into creating the characters of FX's super-spy comedy. In particular the show's cast greatly influences the character design as well (except H. Jon Benjamin, heh), but did you know that the series uses actual real-life models as templates for the characters? See the cast of 'Archer' IRL inside!
Yup! Ms. Lana Kane herself, or rather Aisha Tyler, actress and co-host of 'The View' will soon be bringing her golden pipes to an upcoming episode of 'Glee,' though whether or not she'll put them to use in song is anyone's guess. It remains to be seen if Tyler's role will prove a recurring appearance or even just a one-off, but who will the 'Archer' angel play?
