Brandon Routh May Steal Sarah From 'Chuck'

Reasoning that 'it's really important to the 'Chuck' show that he has comic chops', Brandon is cast as Chuck's mentor.

Although struggling with budget issue, "Chuck" manages to bring in the superman. Brandon Routh, the actor who portrayed the man of steel in "Superman Returns", is getting a guest starring role as a character named Daniel Shaw aka the new spy joining Chuck, Sarah and Casey. He will be featured in a multi-episode arc beginning the fourth episode.

Creator Chris Fedak has more to say about the character although he remains coy on how exactly Shaw will contribute to the whole story. "This year the evil organization Chuck and our gang are battling is called The Ring," he says, "and Shaw is an expert on The Ring."

When asked whether or not Shaw's presence will create a crack in Chuck and Sarah's relationship, Fedak wants to keep it "a little murky" because they got some "really cool surprises" which are hard to spoil. However, EW wrote that Shaw indeed will be a rival for Chuck in terms of getting Sarah's affection.

"Chuck" is premiering in March. Routh will report to duty starting around next week because they are still filming the second episode.

Brandon was an awesome Superman. Who better to help Chuck with his new found powers than Supes? Bring on season 3! :)

Puh-lease... Brandon Routh can't act his way out of a paper bag and is officially the biggest loser in town since Warners dumped his ass as Superman...
