Terminator's Linda Hamilton is joining Chuck, to play his long-missing mother of Chuck in a recurring guest role.
Terminator‘s Linda Hamilton is joining Chuck, to play Mary Bartowski, the long-missing mother of Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) in a recurring guest role.
Executive producer Josh Schwartz at a Comic-Con panel said the casting was inspired by fan suggestions online.
“She’s been such an icon as an action-female badass mom,” Schwartz says. “The fans put it out there, and she heard about it, and was like, ‘I heard I’m Chuck’s mom.’
“It’s going to be a huge part of the (4th) season, the search for mom, it’s going to drive so much of season four,” Schwartz said. “Chuck and Morgan are going to be a pretty bad but good spy team.”
Hamilton will be briefly introduced in the next season opener. And Isaiah Mustafa (aka “The Old Spice Guy”) will also guest star.
The third season begins on FOX8 this Thursday at 7:30pm.
