'Chuck' Set Visit: Yvonne Strahovski and Carrie-Anne Moss Share Nudist Colony Intel (EXCLUSIVE CLIP)

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 8th 2011 10:40AM
Chuck castToday is a bittersweet day for loyal 'Chuck' fans, as the show wrapped its final night of filming just a few hours ago. But even though the cameras have stopped rolling, the Buy More lives on -- at least for nine more episodes, the first of which airs tomorrow night (Fri., Dec. 9, 8PM ET on NBC).

AOL TV was on set for the filming of 'Chuck versus the Hack Off,' which was also the final episode of the series that Zachary Levi directed. It guest-stars 'Community' favorite Danny Pudi, 'Lost' alum Eric Lange and ass-kicking 'Matrix' heroine Carrie-Anne Moss, and judging by what we saw during our visit, it promises to be one of the show's most hilarious episodes yet.

We caught up with Moss and Yvonne Strahovski to get the scoop on why Chuck, Sarah and Gertrude find themselves infiltrating a cult; Levi's directing style; and what Strahovski was feeling as the show neared its end. We also have an exclusive -- and revealing -- preview of tomorrow night's episode, so read on for more.

'Chuck' Season 5 First Look: New Cast Photos

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 7th 2011 10:20AM
Chuck Season 5 One minor annoyance related to coverage of 'Chuck': The cast photos on NBC's press site for the show were put there three seasons ago.

It's not a huge issue, obviously, but so much has happened on the spy dramedy since season 2. Morgan not only knows Chuck's spy secrets, he has the Intersect! Chuck and Sarah are not only in love, but married, for goodness' sake! Huge changes have occurred in the lives of our Buy More pals, yet the photos remained the same. That old shot of Chuck wearing a Buy More badge and a pocket protector just didn't look right when you'd go to grab an image for one of the show's game-changing season finales.

But that's all changed now. NBC just posted a swell new group of 'Chuck' portraits, and doesn't everybody look suave?

Comic-Con Q&A: 'Chuck' Panel Highlights & Cast Interviews on Final Season (VIDEO)

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jul 23rd 2011 7:40PM
Near the start of the 'Chuck' panel at Comic-Con, we learned that Mark Hamill will be guesting on the show, and the hourlong session ended in tears -- but they were the good kind.

Star Zachary Levi got choked up on stage as he recalled the show's first Comic-Con panel and as he talked about all that fans had done to keep the show alive for five seasons.

"This show would not have been here without you guys," he said, before his emotions overcame him and he stopped talking. Fans took up the slack by cheering and clapping.

The panel began with a video of Jeffster playing 'Eye of the Tiger' as Gomez did a 'Rocky'-style workout. Morgan is the new Intersect, after all, and as Ryan McPartlin said in the video, the former Buy More nerd has to be "ripped" for the new season.

'Chuck' Finale Set Visit: Will Chuck and Sarah Make It Down the Aisle?

by Laura Prudom, posted May 10th 2011 12:45PM
Yvonne Strahovski and Zachary LeviThough next week's 'Chuck' finale is titled 'Chuck vs. the Cliffhanger,' after last night's shocking episode, you'd be forgiven for wondering how much more cliffhang-y things could possibly get in Burbank.

Our blushing bride and dashing groom were left facing an uncertain future at the episode's conclusion, and at this point, making it to the church on time is the least of our spy team's worries.

Last month, AOL TV was among a number of outlets invited to the 'Chuck' set to interview the cast as they filmed the finale. Though the series still hasn't been officially renewed for another season, the actors were optimistic about their chances; 'Chuck' is the Little Show That Could, after all, sustained by fan love, product placement and more than a few 'Star Wars' references. (Edit: 'Chuck' has been renewed for a fifth and final season!)

Join us after the jump to discover what we learned about next week's climactic finale and what the stars had to say about their loyal fans. (Spoilers ahead.)

'Chuck' Versus the Bachelor Party: Spies, Strippers & a Soiled Stretched Hummer

by Laura Prudom, posted May 2nd 2011 12:00PM
Yvonne StrahovskiWhat happens in Vecas stays in Vecas.

No, that isn't a typo; on tonight's 'Chuck' (8PM ET on NBC), titled 'Chuck Vs. Agent X,' Captain Awesome (Ryan McPartlin) throws our titular groom-to-be one hell of a bachelor party, and instead of going the clichéd weekend in Vegas route, Chuck (Zachary Levi) and his cohorts end up celebrating in the peaceful solitude of Las Vecas, a campground that, according to McPartlin, ends up being a little more reminiscent of 'Deliverance' than 'The Hangover'.

But while the guys are embroiled in spy shenanigans, blushing bride Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) has an equally action-packed encounter with "The Snakes of Toluca Lake" -- we have a feeling she'd rather be out in the woods. For more on Chuck and Sarah's unique bachelor/ette parties, join us after the jump. (Mild spoilers ahead!)

Celebrate Australia Day With 11 Actors You Forgot Were Australian

Portia De Rossi, Ryan Kwanten, Toni Collette

Today is Australia Day, which means millions of Aussies around the world are celebrating the discovery of their homeland in 1788. At TV Squad, we're celebrating by watching clips of 'Summer Heights High' and thinking about our favorite Australian TV actors.

Believe it or not, many of our biggest small screen stars aren't actually Americans -- they just play ones on TV. Take, for example, Portia De Rossi, hilarious actress and successful memoir author (not to mention wife of Ellen DeGeneres). Betcha forgot she comes from the land Down Under. Same with Ryan Kwanten, shirtless 'True Blood' star and all-around charming guy. Emmy- and Golden Globe–winning 'United States of Tara' star Toni Collette? Yep, a true-blue Sydneysider.

Lopez Gives Zachary Levi a Customized Golf Cart (VIDEO)

Zachary Levi Gets New Golf Cart on 'Lopez Tonight'Last time Zachary Levi appeared on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), he and the host compared the customized golf carts they drive around the studio lot. Levi had cart envy, noting that George Lopez's pimped-out wheels were "legendary" around there.

Lopez offered to get Levi an upgrade -- and he kept his promise. During Levi's second visit to the show, 'Chuck' costar Yvonne Strahovski (who helped with the surprise) rolled out the new wheels, driving an all-black golf cart onto the stage.

"I paid for this myself, so please drive it," Lopez said. "It is all blacked out. It is murdered, as they call it." He hooked him up with a car cart stereo as well -- with some appropriate tunes, of course.

'Chuck' - 'Chuck Versus the Role Models' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted May 4th 2010 10:21AM

Chuck(S03E15) The first major thought that occurred to me after watching tonight's episode was that if Fred Willard and Swoosie Kurtz got a spin-off series about their characters, the Turners, I would watch it. The conversation between them was hilarious. For all we know, this could very well have been a back door pilot for them. They're the 'Gary Seven' of 'Chuck.'

Obviously, agents are tempted to cross the line time to time (that's what happened with Shaw not too long ago). It's interesting how age leads to more self-justification in the matter. Doesn't the CIA or NSA have a decent pension plan?

Morgan and a Tiger on 'Chuck' (VIDEO)

Morgan and a Tiger on 'Chuck'How badly would you like to be a spy? Would you be willing to face down a deadly tiger, if doing that meant you could become a super-cool secret agent? A vicious tiger comes into play on 'Chuck' (Mon., 8PM ET on NBC).

Chuck (Zachary Levi) refuses to let Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) kill the animal. "I am not letting you shoot a tiger. They are endangered and majestic!" he says to her. So it falls to spy-in-training Morgan (Joshua Gomez) to take care of the beast.

'Chuck' - 'Chuck Versus the Honeymooners' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 26th 2010 9:30PM
(S03E14) Let's review the steps that brought us to this moment: 'Chuck' originally only had a 13 episode order for this season so the last episode wrapped things up pretty well and left the story on a happy note. Then, NBC ordered additional episodes (see details in our Chris Fedak interview), so in effect we're seeing "Season 3.2". Also, there's a good chance that 'Chuck' will be renewed next year.

'Chuck' Co-Creator Chris Fedak on "Season 3.2"

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 21st 2010 3:04PM
Zach Levy as 'Chuck'If the last episode of 'Chuck' felt like a season finale... well, it's because it was. The episode was initially supposed to have a thirteen episode season, but NBC decided to order another six episodes. According to Chris Fedak, who co-created the show with Josh Schwartz, the good news came at an opportune time: as they were writing episode thirteen.

In our wide-ranging talk, Fedak and I talked about how the pickup affected the writing process, how the new dynamic between the characters on the show is playing out, if he fears the energy will fizzle, why Tony Hale wasn't around this year, and if he's confident the show will get a season four.

(Warning: Fedak talked fast, so this is a long interview, with a very minor spoiler near the end. But there's a ton of good info for 'Chuck' fanatics, so read and enjoy!)
