Kristin Kreuk has been cast to be a potential love interest for Chuck when the show returns early next year. This would be the actress' first major TV gig since she leaves her role as Lana Lang on "Smallville".
Featured in multiple episodes, Kreuk's Hannah meets Chuck on a flight to Paris, EW reported. From there the relationship blossoms into something more, as an insider put it "Chuck and Hannah definitely have feelings for each other." Turns out Hannah falls out of her job in a publishing company and would end up working at the Buy More.
Hannah becoming a love interest to Chuck may mean a strain in Chuck's relationship with Sarah. Just last week it was announced that Brandon Routh has been recruited to be a new agent that helps Sarah, Chuck and Casey in a case involving evil organization The Ring. Words are, Routh's Daniel has an eye for Sarah.
While Daniel will show his face beginning the fourth episode, it is not known when Hannah will appear yet. The show, after nearly getting canceled, is put for season 3 premiere after Olympics 2010 in March.
