First look at Timothy Dalton in NBC's 'Chuck' (photo)
'Chuck' boss Josh Schwartz wants to make one thing very clear about Timothy Daltonâs upcoming arc on the show: Heâs not playing James Bond. Far from it, in fact.
âItâs not the kind of character youâd [expect] him to play,â Schwartz teases of the actor, who premieres in the Nov. 1 episode, reports EW
. âThereâs nothing suave or debonair about him.â
Daltonâs alter ego shares a past with Chuckâs mom (Linda Hamilton), but Schwartz is reluctant to reveal the nature of their connection. âWe want it to be a surprise,â he says.
Dalton is on board for a handful of episodesâa run that could be extended should NBC greenlight additional episodes of Chuck beyond the initial order of 13. Is Schwartz optimistic his underdog spy comedy will carry on? âNBC is really happy with it creatively,â he says. âThis is Chuck. We never say die.â
