Archer‘s Krieger is Based on a Real Doctor in Austin

Vulture has a great slideshow up of the real-life models for the characters on Archer. Buried within that slideshow is the horrifying revelation that Jessica Walters was not the actual character model for Mallory the person Dr. Krieger is based on is a real doctor in Austin by the name of Ben Brieger.

What are the implications of this? Vulture puts it best:

If you are in Austin, Texas, and heaven forbid you are in a car wreck, you may be taken to the emergency room only to look up and see someone who looks just like Dr. Krieger taking care of you.

That’ll do, piggly. That’ll do.
