Rachel Bilson to appear on Chuck
Bilson will appear in a multi-episode arc on NBC's new action-comedy airing Mondays before Heroes. She is set to play a love interest for the lead character of Chuck, played by Zachary Levi. Her character will be Chuck's first romantic interest since his girlfriend broke up with him a few years ago while in college.
However, expect the unexpected with this character (as with all Chuck characters); the press release sent by NBC let's us know that "she may not turn out to be so perfect -- or even who she says she is." It wouldn't be surprising if she turns out to be some sort of secret agent sent to get information stored in Chuck's brain.
This project will reunite Rachel Bilson and Josh Schwartz, who both worked on The O.C. (Schwartz was an executive producer and writer on the FOX series). "Having worked with her for four years, I know how funny Rachel is and what a good match she'd make for the show, and for Zach Levi. For a first-year series, it's really hard to get big name guest stars, so we're all really excited and grateful that she could do this," revealed Schwartz.
Rachel Bilson will make her first appearance on Chuck at the end of October.
