Seat42f Sits With The Creative Team Behind NBC's New Fall Show "Chuck"
Seat42f: "What did you think of NBC moving "Chuck" from its original Tuesday at 9:00pm time slot to its new home on Mondays at 8:00pm?"
McG: "I think it's flattering that the network sees it as a good fit to "marry" the two shows."
Josh Schwartz: "No, everything he sees is a trigger of some information that is already in his head. He can't see the future, he can't predict things and he can even get things wrong."
McG: "He can take the clues that he has and have a strong idea of 'because I saw this blueprint and because I have seen these three images' I can make an educated guess."
Chris Fedak: "There's such an encyclopedia of things in his head so the information can be really old and in some cases(assignments) will involve the older files stored in Chuck's head."
Seat42f: Tell me a little bit about the character John Casey played by Adam Baldwin?
McG: "Which he couldn't hate more. "
Josh Schwartz : "He was stationed in Afghanistan and now he works in the home appliance section of Buy More and it's not a good fit for him. In a fun way."
Seat42f: Are they going to use John Casey to find missions?
Josh Schwartz: "Yes, missions will come to him or he'll find missions."
Josh Schwartz: "I think for Chuck, a guy who hasn't had a girlfriend since college, this woman sort of descends from the heavens and is like 'by the way I will be playing your girlfriend in the new movie of your life' so Chuck is like this is UNBELIEVABLE. Of course she is assigned to protect him and the last guy she did love, Bryce Larkin, betrayed her and betrayed the country so she's been damaged in relationships as well so it's a complicated romance. But there's a lot of fun with her posing as his girlfriend and his friends saying 'WHAT" how did that happen to you. "
