CHUCK Season 3 – An Update from Our Time on Set
September 22, 2009 by Kath Skerry
Last Wednesday, Dan and I spent the day over on the set of CHUCK. As always, the cast, crew and creative team behind CHUCK welcomed us kindly. I wanted to thank them very much for their generosity in having two “press” people hang out all day while they were working. And a special thanks to the stone cold fox, Jamie French, who took very good care of us that day…and always.
So are you ready for some super secret CHUCK scoop…well, let me tell you every detail of the scenes they were filming while they were there. Or, I could keep my mouth shut and escape the wrath of Fedak and Schwartz. Yeah, better plan.
Dan and I were sworn to secrecy about what we saw (as well as a few other tidbits the cast offered up throughout the day), but we can tell you that Superman was in the house! Yes, we were there during Brandon Routh’s first day of filming. While we can’t tell you who the ex-man of steel will be playing, it’s already out there that he’s on CHUCK for a 6 episode stint. As it was his first day of shooting we sadly didn’t get any interview time with him but he did introduce himself and was sweet as can be. I’m really excited to see what he brings to the show and how his role impacts some of our favorite characters. We watched him film a couple scenes and it looks like he’s going to be a busy boy this season.
We did get a short amount of time with Zachary, Yvonne and Adam last week. Some of the info can and will be shared soon. Some of it might have to be held until a we get a little closer to the episode airing. It’s a long wait until CHUCK returns in March 2010, but I can sleep better knowing it is coming back. And the cast couldn’t say enough about how instrumental YOU the fans were in bringing the show back. Yay YOU!
I know you want all the scoop now, but you’re going to have to hold tight. Dan and I will be releasing our interviews with the cast slowly over time via The TV Talk Podcast.
In the meantime check out some of our pics with the cast and from our day on the set of NBC’s CHUCK.
