CHARACTER DESCRIPTION

Rakish and reckless, suave and sarcastic, Sterling Archer is the world's greatest secret agent turned world's greatest unlicensed private detective. There are a lot of similarities between spy work and detective work, and Archer is handling the transition with ease. What he's not handling well is having to deal with Cyril as his new boss. Additionally, being in Los Angeles surrounded by beautiful starlets (both wanna-be and established) is tough on his recently rekindled romance with Lana.
