Trinity is coming to 'Chuck.' Well, not exactly, but 'Matrix' actress Carrie-Anne Moss will be joining the fifth and final season of NBC's hit spy comedy in a recurring role, according to a report in TVLine.

Moss will play Gertrude Verbanski, a deadly owner of a private spy firm that's in competition with Chuck and Sarah's new operation. TVLine reports that Moss's character will be a romantic foil and rival to John Casey, and that casting breakdowns describe her as "Miranda Priestly meets Lara Croft, with a rather wicked sense of humor."

Moss joins a pantheon of sci-fi legends 'Chuck' has been able to recruit as guest stars. Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in 'Star Wars,' signed on for the Season 5 premiere earlier this week. Other luminaries have included as James Bond (Timothy Dalton), Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), Superman (Brandon Routh), Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) and Number Six (Tricia Helfer).

Casting News: Christopher Titus, Carrie Ann Moss, Billy Baldwin, more

Christopher TitusIt's that time of the year. People are being cast in pilots left and right and some interesting stuff has been announced. At ABC, Christopher Titus (Titus) has landed one of the lead roles in an untitled project from Warner Bros. The show focuses on CEOs and also stars Dylan McDermott (The Practice) and Michael Vartan (Alias). McDermott and Vartan as CEOs is an easy sell. But Christopher Titus, Senior VP Harvard graduate? That's different, and something I look forward to checking out.

Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) is set to star in ABC's Suspect. The show is a procedural that will solve crimes by tracking suspects through a lineup. She's joined by Eric Palladino (ER) and Kathleen Munroe (Beautiful People). The ABC track record for procedurals is less than impressive, but the addition of Guy Ritchie (Snatch) as director is intriguing enough to give this one a look.
