'Chuck' scoop: Carrie-Anne Moss fighting, romancing Casey -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

Chuck-Carrie-Anne-Moss

Carrie-Anne Moss makes her big debut on NBC’s Chuck on Friday and EW has two first-look action photos, plus a few words from the former Ms. Trinity herself.

As fans know, the actress is joining the show as Gertrude Verbanski, a former spy who now runs Verbanski Corp., the chief rival of Chuck’s new spy company Carmichael Industries. She’s ruthless and deadly, yet she also has a weak spot for her old rival John Casey. “It’s a love interest with some dysfunction,” Moss tells EW. “They have a history together and she’s using using her connections and powers to get close to him. They’re a match made in heaven.”

With all its pop culture references, will there be any shout outs to The Matrix?

“They’re doing it in other places, little nods, but not with me,” Moss says. “I didn’t want to play Trinity 10 years later. It’s been fun to play this tough woman with underlying passion for Casey.”

As for action scenes, Moss praised Chuck co-star Yvonne Strahovski as a quick study, and says learning choreographed fight scenes on a rapid TV production schedule has been a learning experience. “For The Matrix, I really trained to do those fights and here we learn it in 10 minutes,” she says, “I have one fight with Casey that’s funny and more of a courting kind of thing.”

Moss’ stint on Chuck begins this Friday at 8 p.m., and for those who missed the season premiere, that’s re-airing on Saturday night.

    • Chris

      Are you referring to Emily Deschanel, because I don’t see it

  • Philippa Chapman

    I’m really looking forward to Casey getting some romance again. There’s been a dearth of loving for Casey ever since ‘Chuck vs the Undercover Lover’ and the attempt with Carina. It’s about time John got lucky!

    • Christine

      I agree. I love John Casey and any way he is getting more storylines is great!
      Plus, Trinity as Casey’s girlfriend? Lol. Yes.

  • elena

    Trinity is back!
    (okay, nerd moment over)
    Is NBC really giving this last season of Chuck only 13 episodes? boo. But I’m glad there’s a last season at all. Pretty much Alias and this show have been the only successful spy shows in recent memory, and they both were awesome in their genres.

    • DL

      Covert Affairs on USA starring Piper Perabo is pretty successful (so far). And when USA shows are successful, they tend to remain successful.

      • DL

        Whoops, forgot to express my elation at this pairing. Go John Casey, go!

  • Marianne

    That second pic is awesome! Can’t wait to see Carrie-Ann on Chuck and all her action with Casey!

  • Erik

    The Best Bodies, The Best Bikinis, A new one everyday mydailybikini.blogspot.com

  • Pan

    W0000 go Casey!!! :D so happy my big boy’s gettin some love!

  • Jeffrey C

    Chuck gets the best guest stars. I wonder why.

  • Aiden

    One of the many reasons I love the show. It’s like a dream show for nerd and pop culture lovin’ people. Chevy Chase, Scott Bakula, Linda Hamilty, Timothy Dalton, Mark Hamill, and now Carrie Anne Moss? Can’t get any cooler guest stars than that. I really feel like CHUCK’s going out with a bang this last season. So ready to tune it on Friday at 8!

  • kathy

    what happened to kathleen-she was his soulmate

    • Jeff

      Part of me wanted Kathleen/Casey, but she was too normal. Sarah fell in love with normal, but it’s too weird for Casey.

      • PJM

        I wanted them to bring back Ilsa from Season 1 rather than try to start a whole new section of backstory for Casey. Ah, well. It should still be fun seeing Trinity and Sarah Walker throwing down.

  • Jerri

    Looking forward to seeing CAM on Chuck. About time Casey got lucky!

    BTW, “They have a history together and she’s using using her connections…” , the word ‘using’ is repeated twice up there in the article

  • João Paulo – Brasil

    I’m glad see her again after Matrix and Disturbia

  • chocolateislove

    Chuck always amazes me with its nerd-tastic stunt casting.

  • jennrae

    They have to at least include one Models, Inc reference.

  • Chris

    Can’t wait. Chuck season 5 is shaping up so well. Better be Friday soon!

  • cssnl

    as we have carrie-Ann Moss we can also have Keanu reeve…
