Chuck is one of those shows we really like here at The Flickcast. Along with some others like Dollhouse, Fringe and Sons of Anarchy, we’re glad to say we’ve been on the Chuck bandwagon since the beginning. Of course, with rumors of the show being canceled and other hindrances to a new season, we were glad to hear, and bring you the news, that Chuck would be back for a third season — albeit a shorter and more budget conscious one.
The season three premiere of Chuck is still months away, but recently over at Sci-Fi Wire, they spoke to the show’s star, Zachary Levi, about the third season of the show and about what he hopes will happen to his character. AMong the many thing discussed, Levi told Sci-Fi Wire he hopes his character will have a chance to be do more action next season.
“I just want to do more action, man,” Levi said in the interview. “I want Chuck to kick some more ass, shoot some more guns,” he continued. “I’ve been sitting on the sidelines for two years watching Adam and Yvonne have all of the fun. Literally all I ever wanted to do since I was a kid was be in war movies. … You run around in the backyard and go, ‘Bang, you’re dead!’ And throwing dirt clods as hand grenades. So to really get to participate in the action more, as opposed to just running away or falling off a building or whatever, would be really awesome.”
Some of the other bits of info about the show Levi dropped during the interview include his feelings when the show’s future was in doubt, what will happen to his character, and the show, given the budget cuts imposed for season three, how his character’s relationship with Yvonne Strahovski’s Sarah will develop, how much of a plan the show’s producers and writers have for the next season and when they start filming.
They start end of July or beginning of August, just in case you’re curious. Which, according to Levi in the article, gives him just enough time to hit the gym and bulk up for his new action scenes.
