Tony Hale “Busting” Out on CHUCK and SAMANTHA WHO?
June 3, 2008 by Kath Skerry
In perhaps the best news I’ll read all day, The Hollywood Reporter tells us that Tony Hale will be joining the cast of CHUCK in a recurring role next season. Hale, best knows for his genius role as Byron “Buster” Bluth of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT will be playing Emmett, the new assistant manager of the Buy More Store where Chuck (Zachary Levi) works. An efficiency expert, he is sent in by Buy More corporate and decides to stay on when he realizes how poorly run the store is.
This won’t be the first time Tony Hale and CHUCK star Zachary Levi have worked together. Last year they did a short film called “Ctrl-Z” as part of a Delta Airlines competition.
Hale will also have a new gig on SAMANTHA WHO? playing Andy Adams, Samantha’s (Christine Applegate) new doctor.
Schwartz…let’s take care of this ‘Samantha’ issue right away by signing on Hale as a series regular. The guy is brilliant.
