Yet, amid all of NBC’s internal turmoil, there was a solid fan base for CHUCK that fought for it to the end – including letter writing campaigns and sponsorship saviors like …Read On »

For five seasons Zachary Levi has taken his Chuck Bartowski character on CHUCK from slacker nerd to suave spy. The series ends tonight on NBC and Levi says it wasn’t without a few tears. The actor spoke with ASSIGNMENT X in this sit down interview where he spoke about his five years on the show, and, of course, if he thinks there might be CHUCK feature films in the future. ZACHARY LEVI: Who knows if there will ever be a CHUCK movie. The show lends itself to be a film. Every episode was like a mini-movie. It would be kind …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: CHUCK star Yvonne Strahovski kicks ass to the end as the NBC series signs off

For five years, Australian actress Yvonne Strahovski has kicked ass as CIA spy Sarah Walker on NBC’s action-comedy CHUCK. In that time, Sarah has went from a cold, closed-off spy, to a loving wife (and still stellar spy) to the show’s titular character Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi). While the ups and downs of CHUCK being on the bubble for its five years on the air has certainly provided anxious butterflies for the cast and crew during the run, Strahovski says the journey has been worth it. With the series signing off with a two-hour season finale tonight, the actress spoke …Read On »

CHUCK, the romantic spy comedy that has lasted five seasons on NBC, draws to a close with a two-hour series finale this Friday night at 8 PM. Co-created by Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz, CHUCK has chronicled the evolution of Zachary Levi’s Chuck Bartowski from nerdy Buy More employee to confused spy to genuine hero and husband of more experienced fellow spy Sarah Walker, played by Yvonne Strahovski. Schwartz, who previously created THE O.C. for Fox and still has GOSSIP GIRL on the CW, is now in post-production on his feature film directing debut FUN SIZE and is in pre-production …Read On »

Stars: Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, Joshua Gomez, Adam Baldwin, Vik Sahay, Scott Krinsky, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Ryan McPartlin, Sarah Lancaster Writer: Nicholas Wooton Director: Buzz Feitshan IV Network: NBC, Friday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: January 20, 2012 “Chuck vs. the Bullet Train” is obviously paying an homage to all kinds of thriller train movies, with just about every train cliche except smashing through a station. And with all the back and forth, it looks like everything is coming together for one whopper of a finale next week on CHUCK, not to mention full circle. Bad guy Nicholas Quinn (Angus Macfadyen) thinks he’s got Chuck (Zachary Levi) …Read On »

TV Review: CHUCK – Season 5 – “Vs. Bo”

Stars: Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, Joshua Gomez, Adam Baldwin, Vik Sahay, Scott Krinsky, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Ryan McPartlin Writer: Kristin Newman Director: Jeremiah Chechik Network: NBC, Friday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: January 13, 2012 “Chuck Vs. Bo” starts out with Sarah (Yvonne Strahovksi) telling Chuck (Zachary Levi) that she’s had it with spying. What? The world of CHUCK without evil forces out for world domination? Not for long because Chuck makes the fatal error – he says, “one last mission.” This time it’s to recover something Morgan (Joshua Gomez) left behind while partying in Vail, Colorado, back when he was still in his buggy Intersect phase. …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: CHUCK star Scott Krinsky clears his head and looks back on the series

On NBC’s CHUCK, now on Friday nights at 8 PM as it winds up its fifth and final season, the title hero played by Zachary Levi is still juggling his Buy More workplace and his secret identity as a spy. The spy missions can be dangerous, even deadly, but they lack one menace found only at the Buy More – the team of Jeff Barnes and Lester Patel, played respectively by Scott Krinsky and Vik Sahay. Washington,D.C.native Krinsky’s background in standup comedy has served him well in his role as Jeff, who until earlier this season has been wandering around …Read On »

TV Review: CHUCK Season 5 “Vs. the Kept Man”

Stars: Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, Joshua Gomez, Adam Baldwin, Vik Sahay, Scott Krinsky, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Ryan McPartlin Network: NBC, Friday nights, 8 p.m. Original Telecast: January 7, 2011 I have to say that in spite of a rocky start, this season of CHUCK is building up nicely to its finale in a few weeks. With Casey (Adam Baldwin) and Gertrude Verbanski (Carrie-Anne Moss) dancing around matters of the heart – well, we all know Casey has one even if he doesn’t – this episode, “Chuck vs. the Kept Man,” makes it seem like most of the main cast members are going to get matched up …Read On »

No surprise here, but while at today’s NBC TCA winter press tour, NBC Entertainment President Robert Greenblatt was asked about the status of CHUCK and if it may get a last minute reprieve during its fifth and previously announced final season. Unfortunately for CHUCK fans, the ride is over. “Have you seen the ratings of CHUCK?” asks Greenblatt. “Unfortunately that rabid fan base that was going crazy on the net, didn’t come to the show. Maybe it didn’t come to the show because it was Friday, but you think they would find the show. It’s doing a 1 rating. I …Read On »
