Archer | SEASON PREMIERE April 5 | 10PM | FX Networks



Matt Thompson

Executive Producer

Matt Thompson hates two things: taking pictures and writing biographies. Usually, when pressed, he does something silly for each. Below, in handy bullet point form, is what we do know about this reclusive, angry man.

  • He is either 44 or 45 years old. He actually forgets which, with alarming frequency.
  • He is 6'1" which is a FULL two inches taller than his brother. He loves to remind his brother of this by standing on his tip toes in family pictures.
  • He is married to a very patient and beautiful woman named Merrell. He forgives her for growing up in Florida. Not all states can be as cool as Texas.
  • He has three small children and secretively loves one more than the others. He is waiting for the other two to "earn it."
  • 12 years ago, he made a $1 bet with Adam Reed that before his 70th birthday, he would have a beer at a hotel on the moon and say to the bartender, "Give me another space beer, Gleep Glop."
  • He has been making cartoons with Adam Reed for 15 years and has stuck it out only to see how their $1 bet turns out.
  • Before working on Archer with Adam, he made Sealab 2021 and Frisky Dingo with Adam.
  • He is very excited about the slate of cartoon projects that Floyd County Productions is developing with FX. Very.
  • He is very thankful for each and every one of the 100 hardworking, talented Floyd County employees. Except for Casey.
