Garrett Hedlund in TRON: LEGACY | © 2010 Walt Disney Pictures With CHUCK being a very geek savvy show, and displaying the poster for 1982’s TRON in the room of Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) since Season 1, it was a bit strange not to have any mention of TRON: LEGACY in any of the Season 4 episodes. Granted, Warner Bros. owns CHUCK and Disney owns TRON, but couldn’t there have been a little bit of a crossover? While speaking recently with Levi himself, ASSIGNMENT X asked him about TRON: LEGACY and what Morgan (Joshua Gomez) and Chuck probably thought about […]Read On »
