Exclusive: Brewster Spies Pivotal 'Chuck' Arc

Chucknews_l

This is certainly a step up from Nicole Richie. NBC’s fraktacular Chuck has recruited the fraktabulous Jordana Brewster to play a love interest for Zachary Levi for a minimum of three episodes, executive producer Josh Schwartz confirms to me exclusively.

Her character is the infamous Jill, the “mythic college girlfriend who broke Chuck’s heart, slept with his best friend Bryce Larkin, and is basically responsible for setting his life crashing off course and landing him at the Nerd Herd,” Schwartz explains. “He always has imagined seeing her again, and being able to impress her with all he’s accomplished. Unfortunately, when he does meet her, he’s doing a computer install and she’s a brilliant, successful, beautiful doctor working to create antibodies to horrible diseases.

“The part is funny, romantic, there’s action and cool twists and emotional drama,” Schwartz continues. “It’s the juiciest arc we’ve done yet and one that ties very deeply into the mythology of the show and the character of Chuck.”

Schwartz says he has long wanted to work with Brewster, who seemed primed for small-screen superstardom last year when she was tapped to succeed Angelina Jolie in the much-buzzed-about (but ultimately doomed) Mr. & Mrs. Smith pilot. Here’s hoping Chuck does for her career what that show was supposed to.

What do you think? Do you spy the makings of a dynamic duo in Levi and Brewster? I have a hunch you do.

    Oooh, I’m liking this! I knew Jill was coming back in episode 2.06, but didn’t realize it was a multiple episode arc. It looks like Jill is going to give Sarah something to think about…

  • Mel

    P.S. Hey Mike, it’s “Levi”, like the jeans, not “Levy”, like the dam. :)

  • Laura

    AHH JILL! Yes! I’m totally psyched to hear we’re finally going to see Jill. And YAY FOR CHUCK! Poor guy, seeing her again is going to be ROUGH.

    I love Jordana Brewster, and I was just wondering last week why she wasn’t in more stuff.

  • Shane Saunders

    Cool scoop news!

  • Steph F.

    I want Rachel Bilson back as adorkable sandwich girl Lou!
    I can’t wait for Chuck to come back =)

  • Pete

    I really like Sarah and her Wienerlicious outfit. However, my favorite guest gal was Rachel Bilson who seemed like a really nice fit. Any chance of her coming back?

  • lovejordana

    I’m beyond obsessed with Jordana, ever since DEBS. So happy that she’s been slated to appear on this show. Wish you all the best Jordana :)

  • Mel

    Mike, that picture of Jordana is not flattering at all.

  • Steve

    When I was a child I loved Brewster and her foster father Henry. It was crazy that time she got locked in the refrigerator!

  • Irish Queen

    I’m in agreement with a couple of other posters. Rachel Bilson was excellent in her role of deli owner girl. I’d like another deli owner/Chuck/Sarah sandwich. Bring Rachel back.

  • Chuck fan

    Be careful of obstruction for the sake of obstruction. Attempting to derail the romance of Chuck and Sarah to prolong it can be potentially transparent and annoying.

  • Liddy

    I think it might be too soon to re-introduce Jill into the picture. Maybe S3 or S4?
