Brandon Routh: Chuck's Latest Star!

Superman Returns star Brandon Routh has joined the NBC cult show Chuck for a multi-episode arc.

I love this show even more now!

EW‘s Michael Ausiello reports the 29-year-old actor will play “Shaw, a mysterious new spy who takes control as the new leader of Operation Bartwoski, becoming a mentor to Chuck (Zachary Levi) and a rival in his affections for Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski).”

Exciting. Subway sandwiches all around!!!

Thanks for the Chuck news Jared! I’m excited to see BR on the show, but I don’t like how his character is going to come between Chuck and Sarah. Can’t wait for Chuck to come back on the air!!!

Like Chuck needs someone else coming between he and Sarah! Let Chuck have her already! It’s only August, we still have 7 months until the third season actually airs! :(

Which good looking guy doesn’t come between Chuck and Sarah? Bryce Larkin, that other one who got shot and now “Superman”. This kind of story line is becoming old. Sarah and Chuck have enough obstacles to overcome, they don’t need more. Anyway, still glad that the show is coming back.

When I first saw the cartoon picture, I thought it was Greg Brady from the Brady Bunch! tee heee

I Love Chuck! Thanks for posting about this show!!

Why does #7 want Chuck cancelled? Has he seen this amazing show???

Love Chuck so much and even though the show doesn’t come back until March (it sucks but I’d rather NBC promote the show like hell during the Olympics than have it come back earlier due to a canceled show without much promotion and when viewers fall TV habits are already set. Seriously the show has a great baseline audience but what it needs is NEW viewers to increase it’s ratings), it’s great casting news nonetheless!

Thanks Jared for posting about the show and I’m ecstatic to know your a fan as well! :)

he’s so handsome. but hey, is there no superman II? what happened?

What happened, hotforbrandon, is that those who count in Hollywood suddenly realized that turnips are better actors than Brandon Routh and have ignored him ever since. Why do you think Warner Brothers finally dumped him as Superman?

Seriously – to be the lead in a $200 million dollar flick and then do nothing but straight-to-DVD movies — not what you want if you plan on surviving on Hollywood.

Seriously…this is not cool…I never liked Brandon Routh for supermand, and I disliked him so much. Now this…it’s like a nightmare come true…hopefully he does a better jobe here.

it wasn’t him that wasn’t a good superman. if it’s anybody, it’s kate bosworth that truly s-u-C-ked as lois lane. come on, she was so not believable as superman’s love interest, all whiny and full of herself. i think it isn’t fair to brandon routh to say he doesn’t make a good superman just because those that dislike him wet themselves for tom welling.

look just because Tom Welling would’ve been a great Superman, It doesn’t mean that Brandon Didn’t look like Superman. There were times that he Did Look like Christopher Reeves, However his acting and his facial expressions are seriously lacking It also doesn’t man that we’re wet for Tom but it is the most logical choice. Tom does a better angry superman than Both Reeves, Cain, And Routh put together, plus his fan base would’ve definitely seen that movie. Just becasue Bryan Singer messed up the last Superman movie and the chance to do Xmen 3 and wolverine doesn’t mean much but the fact that he said he wanted to use all new faces for the movie yet he used cyclops as Lois Lane’s love interest is beyond stupid. I love Chuck and regardless who they bring to the show, it’s a great show. The fact that they feel confident enough to bring in a actor like him simply says that they want to catch the attention of those who do watch smallville and other shows like that. Chuck should have a good 3 more seasons left.

Brandon Routh was perfect as Superman and Clark! He received several popular fan awards like Best Superhero at the Scream Awards and Best Newcomer by Empire mag a couple of years ago, and those were voted by the Fans! People in general loved him in the role, Superman Returns made nearly $400 mil worldwide. Solid. It made more $ than Batman Begins. WB are idiots for not making another Superman movie with Brandon in the title role. Any way, LOVE Routh and Chuck! Can’t wait. ;)

He’s a good looking man and he’s the attitude (the port) for Superman!
I think he looks better on blue eyes!

Time to re-watch Chuck

I agree. Cancel Chuck already!
