Archer, Rick & Morty Star Chris Parnell on the Voice That Gave Him a Career
Chris Parnell joins me to talk about his varied career. Parnell, a former cast member of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, is best known to audiences as Cyril Figgis on Archer and Jerry on Rick & Morty.
In this conversation, we talk about how Parnell’s background and upbringing influenced his career. Plus, we also discuss Parnell’s early mentors and those who encouraged him to pursue a career in acting.
Parnell also offers his thoughts on being a part of the cultural phenomenon that is Rick & Morty. The popular Adult Swim animated comedy has become a meme-generating favorite for millions. That, along with his other starring role on FX’s Archer, has cemented Parnell’s fame as a voice actor.
From live-action sitcoms to voicing adult animation, this is a truly enlightening conversation about Parnell’s incredibly diverse career.
