Months before the season begins, we have our first official spoiler from Ausiello:
Question: Please give me a scoop on the new season of Chuck! —Joy
Ausiello: And the title of the season 4 premiere is…”Chuck vs. the Anniversary”! What does it mean? Hit the comments with your theories!
Oh, that’s so nice of him!
The new spoiler is here! The new Spoiler is here!!
Closing in on Comicon we get the next tidbit on the S4 premier from Josh Schwartz himself on Twitter:
JoshSchwartz76: Yes it’s true. Dolph Lundgren to try and “break” Chuck Bartowski in Season 4 premiere.
I’m officially psyched.
“Dolph Lundgren plays Marko,” explains Chuck co-creator Chris Fedak. “Is he Russian? Yes. Is he a terrifying bad guy? Yes. Will he say, ‘I must break you’? You’ll have to wait for the return of Chuck.” I’m counting the days! Now, what about Stanton? “Harry will play Harry Dean, the man who comes between Chuck and his search for Mom. Who is he exactly? Well, we’ll say this: Only Harry Dean Stanton could play this part.” Okay, now I’m counting the minutes!
Actress–author–model–animal crusader–Daily Show correspondent Olivia Munn can now add superspy to her endless list of hyphenations when she guest-stars on Chuck this fall!
Munn, who has a regular role on NBC’s midseason comedy Perfect Couples, will play an impossibly cool, smart, and pretty CIA agent who intimidates and schools Chuck and Morgan in the season 4 premiere on Sept. 20.
And it gets better. Apparently, supermodels are “in” this year. They are looking for one to play a super-sexy spy in the second episode, which is apparently entitled Chuck vs. the Suitcase.
Could a supersexy spy who kicks butt possibly come between Chuck and Sarah? I don’t think so!
New Ausiello Spoiler for 22-Jul-2010; Heather Chandler is back!
According to a Chuck insider, Richie will resurface in October when a prison transfer goes awry and her character, Heather Chandler, ends up being stowed away at Castle (a.k.a. the underground CIA base). But here’s where things get really interesting: I’m told her arrival dovetails with some serious bumps in Chuck and Sarah’s deepening relationship. And you better believe that Ms. Heather will use that rift to her advantage.
And he has more, too.
The first promo for Season 4…
The Premier Returns!
Senor Alejandro Goya, the Premier of our favorite fictitious South American Country, Costa Gravas, returns to invite Awesome to his island nation. All this because he once saved the dictator’s life? Is that all it takes???
According to TV Guide, this is episode 4. Armand Assante rules!
Aladinsgenie4u points out in comments that the title of 4.04 is Chuck versus The Coup D’Etat. That comes from Spoiler TV.
And turn your mind back to 1983. Remember Joel’s (Tom Cruise) best friend Barry in Risky Business? TV Guide also says Bronson Pinchot has been cast in the second episode.
This is NOT a Spoiler
But it is big Season 4 news. From TV Writer’s Podcast (with links to their IMDB profiles), the new writers for the show are:
- Nicholas Wootton
- Kristin Newman
- Craig DiGregorio
- Henry Alonso Myers
Mel at ChuckTV.net has more of their bios too!
I’m not sure that this person wanted to remain anonymous, but many thanks to the reader who sent in this tip from Fancast.
If on ‘Chuck‘ the Buy More is now being run by the CIA, what does that mean for Big Mike and the Nerd Herders? Are they off the show? – Stu
Big Mike is still on hand – though oblivious to the true nature of his new bosses, Mark Christopher Lawrence tells me. Lester and Jeff, meanwhile, are “on the lam, getting a taste of freedom… and fear,” says Vik Sahay. “Who knows what that kind of new feral quality that will bring if and when we reunite with the gang?” So, Jeffster’s on some sort of “excellent adventure”? “I don’t know about excellent,” Vik laughs. “More like torturous, weird, awkward and off-putting.”
Always love to know what’s happening to Jefffster!
Late breaking: the name 4.03 is Chuck vs. The Cubic Z. Is that good news or bad???
I need to start dating these spoilers – they’re coming in so fast and furious. The worst thing is that this news is already “so 5 minutes ago.” Does anyone not realize that season 4 will feature a baby awesome? Well, maybe not “feature”, and maybe not even a baby just yet, but certainly, there will be an addition coming to the Woodcomb household and the Chuck family.
Question: I need some Chuck scoop! —Taylor
Ausiello: Captain Awesome won’t be reviving his short-lived career as an international superspy anytime soon. “Last season Awesome realized if there was one place in the world where he wasn’t awesome, it was on spy missions,” notes exec producer Chris Fedak. “He’d like to stay as far away from the spy world as he can.” That’s particularly true now that there’s a mini Awesome on the way. “He is going to be way more into all of the rituals of pregnancy than even Ellie is,” says fellow EP Josh Schwartz of the daddy-to-be. “Like all things in life, Awesome is going to throw himself into the pregnancy with his usual fervor.”
Chuck star Zachary Levi has revealed that Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) will be more involved with his character’s spy career in the upcoming fourth season. In the third season finale, Chuck confessed the details of his secret life to his sister.
He added: “Secrets are being kept but there’s still some transparency with it. So I’m not having to do the same thing I’ve had to do. It’s a little bit different.
Looks to my eyes that Chuck is still keeping secrets, but not in the way we might be thinking.
