I think that’s what I love about it [‘Archer’] the most. It really takes and extends the character beyond anything that I’ve ever been.

TVRage.com's Junior Writer Elena Mertus recently joined a conference call where singer Kenny Loggins, known for his songs from 'Footloose' and 'Top Gun,' chatted about his animated experience on 'Archer.'
Here's an excerpt from the conference call:
"TVRage recently spoke with Loggins in a conference call where he answered questions about his recent television appearance. On Monday night’s episode, viewers will encounter a character that is much more outrageous than his actual self. He said, “I think that’s what I love about it [‘Archer’] the most. It really takes and extends the character beyond anything that I’ve ever been. And, I’m a total badass in this episode, and it’s fun." He continued to talk about reading the script for the first time, “Well, I laughed out loud. I thought this is great, it’s a great way to push the character. I was hoping that they’d take it out of the norm, and they sure did.”
Loggins offered insight behind the process of becoming part of the show, “Well, as you know, ‘Archer’ has been referring to "Danger Zone" for a quite a while. So I have five kids, my oldest is 33, and he thinks it was inevitable that they would call and say ‘would you like to be a character on the show?’ So I think they just finally went, well, we’ve gone so far with this joke we have to take it all the way.”
As it turns out, Loggins’ son was extremely passionate about his dad making an appearance on ‘Archer.’ Loggins elaborated, “my son, Crosby, has been--now he’s 33--and he’s been writing letters to the 'Archer' team at FX now for a couple years saying, ‘When are you going to put my dad on the show?’ I’m sure they’ve been blowing it off, but he kept telling me, ‘Dad, you should get somebody on this. You should be on that show.’”
You can watch ‘Archer Vice: Baby Shower’ on Monday, March 3 at 10/9c on FX.
