Aisha Tyler is a jack of many trades: actress, author, game-show host, talk-show panelist, podcast proprietor.
But there is at least one thing the Archer leading lady won’t do for a buck.
“Windows,” she replied, in a heartbeat –– joking. Maybe.
Archer, which airs Monday at 10 p.m. on FX, finally had its season-five debut this week. The animated show spins around secret agents working for a grossly mismanaged independent intelligence service. Imagine peppering a James Bond movie with some of the loopiest characters from The Office.
The new season is something of a reboot of the show, now also dubbed Archer Vice, with the service in such a financial mess that the team is forced to turn to crime. Complicating things: Tyler’s character, the agency’s finest, Lana Kane, is now pregnant.
But Tyler is mum when asked to reveal the daddy.
“I might know who the father is, I can’t tell you,” she replied, adding, “She didn’t get pregnant by accident.”
Tyler, 43, hosts The CW network’s Whose Line is it Anyway?, a revival of the long-running improvisational game show, and is the proprietor of the podcast Girl on Guy, which offers in-depth conversations with artists and inspired Tyler’s recent book, Self-Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation.
And she has a day job, as one of the panelists on the CBS daily chat show, The Talk.
“I love to work,” Tyler said. “I grew up poor. It was a good time, but I’m not interested in going back.
“And I’m going to try to add more jobs to that list. I want to wake up, look back and think, ‘God! I did a lot of stuff.’”
FX will repeat the season- premiere episode, White Elephant, at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.
