[ # ] Kenny Loggins flies into the Danger Zone known as Archer tonight!
March 3rd, 2014 under FX

Tonight at 10p on Archer, Kenny Loggins guest stars as himself on the FX animated comedy. This appearance is something that has been 5 seasons in the making and the singer can thank is son for making it happen. You see, he told us on a conference call last week that his oldest son, Crosby, “has 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?'” Then he added, “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.'” Well tonight it finally happens, so I guess they finally read Crosby’s letters.
So why was his son so insistent that his dad be on the show? Because Loggins’ song Danger Zone from Top Gun has been a long running joke on the show. So tonight you will hear him sing that song once again, but it is not going to sound like how you remember it. What that means, you will just have to tune in to hear it. But what I will tell you, out of all of his songs this is the last one he thought could be done the way they are doing it…
We know what his voice sounds like, but since this is an animated show you know, he won’t look like himself. Well he will, but it will be his ’80s self back when he sang the chart topping hit. So what was it like for him to see the animated version of himself? He said, “Well, I thought I looked a little bit like a terrorist.” You will have to watch the show to see if he really looks like one and why they made him look like that.
Now even though Loggins has had 3 of the biggest soundtrack hits of all time (I’m Alright, Footloose and Danger Zone), he hasn’t done much acting in his career. What he learned from doing Archer is he really liked doing voice over work and hopes to do more of it in the future. And yes, he wouldn’t mind doing a few more episodes of the FX show. So his son better start writing them a few more letters now.
Just an FYI to producers, he is busy this summer touring with his band Blue Sky Riders who are opening up for some singer named, Kenny Loggins. If you have never seen him in concert, I highly recommend it because he puts on a good show.
