'Chuck' exclusive: Stacy Keibler cast as Greta 3.0

stacey-kieblerImage Credit: PRN/PR Photos; Jordin Althaus/NBCStacy Keibler is joining the Nerd Herd. The wrestler-model-What About Brian actress has signed on to guest star on this season’s third episode of Chuck, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Keibler will succeed Olivia Munn and Isaiah Mustafa as undercover agent Greta, a new recurring character that will be played by a different actor every week.

“Greta can be a guy or a girl, which is brilliant,” Zachary Levi explained to me over the weekend at NBC’s press tour soiree. “The Buy More has now been taken over by the CIA and it’s a fully functioning operation by the government, so there are these constant agents that are in the store. First it was Olivia Munn, who looked hot in her little Nerd Hereder outfit, and [next was] Isaiah, who was a hoot to work with.”

Keibler’s episode—which also features the return of Nicole Richie and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin—is slated to air in October.

Thoughts? Is Keibler Greta-worthy? And who should step into the role next? Sound off below!

    With this type of character, they can really have some fun with Stunt Casting …

    • LOL

      • Dee

        and this has what to do with chuck

      • thebigone

        Idiot!!!!

  • Randy

    Probably the most brilliant stunt casting idea in the history of television.

    • darclyte

      Agreed. I’d love to see them land some A-List celebrities and maybe some “classic” stars. People who played nerds on other series also would be fun, like Nicholas Brendon & Allyson Hannigan (too bad they’re both working for CBS though,) or America Ferrera. Maybe since SyFy is owned by NBC/Universal they could get Allison Scagliotti from Warehouse 13. I’m looking forward to a different Greta each week. I’d almost rather be surprised though instead of Ausiello “spoiling” each casting.

      • GimplyGump ☺

        N.B. is only a quasi-recurring Character (as Kevin Lynch) on /Criminal Minds/. There are rumors he may not even be that as they are thinking of making Gracia & the new spin off techie get together. Basically he’s not contractually bound to CBS. I’d love to see him on Chuck. :D

      • ralph

        why does every one like warehouse 13 its a real bad show stuped show

      • Catarina

        They should totally get Summer Glau.
        I also think Sarah Michelle Gellar would work as a “Greta”.

      • kevin

        So looks pike I’m not the only chuck fan who likes Buffy

    • Sarah El

      Totally agreed.

    • Thursday

      Okay so we have gone, Girl, Guy, Girl…So now we have a guy for episode 4? Don’t know if Jaleel White is still acting, but Urkel in the Buy More would be awesome! And how about Twin Greta’s? That would make for some great comedy? Two Female Twin’s both named Greta…The ideas are endless on this concept!

  • W0NK042

    Nice. I’m really looking forward to the Buy More being used as a full CIA front, great fun.

  • Brian

    I love what they’re doing with this whole special-super-duper-spy-of-the-week thing. This has the potential to be a riot if for no other reason than we get to wonder what on earth each of these actors & actresses will do once it’s their turn! Man do I love this show!

  • David W

    I don’t know enough about stacy keibler to know what I think about her being in an episode of chuck what I can say is I’d like to see Jaimie Alexander guess star in Chuck she played Jessi XX in kyle xy and is set to play Sif in te thor movie when it comes out.

  • Sarah

    I agree with everyone else that this stunt casting CIA operative-of-the-week is great!

    • darclyte

      I also can’t wait to see how the Buy More flunkies react to a different “Greta” each week.

  • Ryan

    MORGAN FREEMAN! That would be hilarious casting… the man is in everything!

    • Really?

      Lets cast someone who hasn’t slept with his own grand-daughter. Seriously. Look it up. Its still gross, despite that fact that they arent blood related.

  • Kay Lhota

    I am so excited to hear the “Chuck” news, and I have a feeling that this is going to be a clever running gag throughout the season! A new “Greta” comes in every week, and Big Mike doesn’t suspect that there is anything unusual going on?

  • chickenrex

    JUST KEEP STACY!!! MMMYeah!

  • Diane D

    I think it would be hilarious to have The Situation from Jersey Shore as one of the Greta’s.

    • Sarah El

      Not gonna lie, that idea is kind of endearing.

  • Doug

    CHUCK is pulling out all the stops this season. Great job getting Stacy Kiebler!!

  • Sally

    Well, if they really want to do some stunt casting. Have the woman who seems to be showing up everywhere. Commercials, Saturday Night Live. Yep – cast Betty White for a week. She would be a hoot.

    • GimplyGump ☺

      I like that idea. How about RuPaul?! [j/k]

      • Cali Fan

        Yea, he could dress as a man one day, then a woman the next. That would really confuse the Buymorians.

    • Dee

      this would really throw everyone for a loop – who would expect it.

  • DN

    I’m curious to see how this character is going to play. If this idea of multiple people assuming the same persona works, this will be a stroke of genius.

  • Frank

    I think “LittleChuckFan” should be given a guest shot as Greta. In fact, maybe she can be used in a storyline about Sarah’s little sister. Think of the possibilities! I’m serious…bring on Bailey!

    • PJM

      Totally agree with that one.

    • lisa

      i agree!! someone set this up!

    • coreymon77

      Yes! Get little Bailey on for a week as Greta! That would be awesome! NBC, listen! Somebody set this up! LittleChuckFan for Greta!

    • Woody

      I agree also. Bailey has done alot for the show and is loved by all the cast. That was made clear at this years comic-con and the Ken-Mar event..Bailey is as famous as the cast among us Chuck Fans…

    • chris

      YES! LittleChuckFan would Rule! Bailey bossing the Team around for a week! Make it happen!

    • Trish

      Bailey!! Bailey!! Bailey!!

    • coreymon77

      come on everyone! The entire cast loves Bailey too! Let’s tweet all of the cast/crew and see if they can make this happen! Let the official #Bailey4Greta campaign begin!

    • Elaine

      I ditto that recommendation – she has such a great heart for Chuck that this would be an awesome opportunity for her

  • WatchesEverything

    Well, there have to be limits… unless you can turn off your disbelief enough to accept Shaq followed by Linda Hunt…
