Later this year we’ll see Bryan Cranston in the sci-fi epic John Carter, but before that, the Breaking Bad star is heading into space along with the animated spy Archer for the two-part season finale. The new season doesn’t even begin until January 19th, but The Huffington Post reports the finale is already slated to have Cranston play Commander Drake an “earnest, conscientious astronaut” trying to stop mutiny aboard the International Space Station. In addition, series creator and executive producer Adam Reed also revealed that Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) and Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead) will also guest star in an upcoming episode where the Isis team heads to West Virginia to help Gillette’s marijuana farming brother (Rooker). McBrayer is perfectly suited for backwoods parts of West Virginia, but Cranston in space with some of the crew will be something special to behold. The third season of Archer begins on January 19th at 10/9c on FX.
Details on Emma Stone and others taking guest spots on 30 Rock after the jump.
EW has learned that Emma Stone has cemented herself for a guest spot on 30 Rock along with Andy Samberg and Nick Cannon. In fact, they’ll all show up in the same episode as Jenna (Jane Krakowsky) stars in a fictional movie called Martin Luther King Day from the producers of Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve. Basically it’s a movie that has everyone in the world in it with these three guest stars appearing in the trailer, and it isn’t too far of a cry from Garry Marshall’s star-powered romantic comedies. 30 Rock returns for its sixth season on January 12th at 8/7c on NBC.
