Timothy Dalton cast on NBC's Chuck
If you’re a fan of Bond, I’m not sure how you can get away with not liking Chuck. For those that have never heard of it, Chuck is an American spy dramedy (I apologize for the use of the word “dramedy”) that airs on NBC. It’s essentially about a computer nerd who gets a program of sorts stuck in his head that makes him valuable to the CIA. It’s absolutely ridiculous to explain, but it’s also actually a pretty good show. Chuck’s father is played by Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise) and in the upcoming fourth season his mother will be played by Linda Hamilton (Terminator). Also cast for season four is Timothy Dalton who will play an occurring character over a number of episodes. His character is said to be a mysterious stranger who has a history with Chuck’s mom.
As noted by Deadline this is the first appearance of Dalton on US television since a cameo appearance in 1979 on Charlie’s Angels. This summer Dalton voiced the character Mr. Pricklepants in Pixar’s Toy Story 3 and later this year will be appearing alongside Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in The Tourist.
Chuck’s fourth season premieres on Monday, September 20 on NBC.
