Last week, Zachary Levi, the star and Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak, executive producers of NBC’s Chuck – premiering with back-to-back episodes on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2010 at 9/8 and moving to its regular timeslot Monday, Jan. 11th at 8/7C – took part in a conference call Q&A session. Here are the highlights from that session:
On Chuck’s new abilities:
Zachary Levi: Well first of all thank you. Thank you for liking the show. We appreciate that very much. And as far as Chuck being able to fight this season I like it very much as an actor and as a man. For two and a half years I’ve – well for two years I kind of sat on the sidelines and watched Adam Baldwin and Yvonne Strahovski, Casey and Sarah respectively, kick bad guys’ butts and was very jealous of that. Not that Chuck should have been able to do it at that point, you know, he was much better at running away or screaming… like a little girl. But now that he has this new intersect (unintelligible) and the abilities that come with that he is able to kind of lend a hand in the kick butt-ery if you will.
