Linda Hamilton, who played the original Sarah Connor in the Terminator franchise, will be taking on the role of “Mama Bartowski” on NBC’s spy series Chuck.
“She’s been such an icon as an action-female badass mom,” creator Josh Schwartz said at Comic-Con on Saturday morning (July 24). “The fans put it out there, and she heard about it, and was like, ‘I heard I’m Chuck’s mom.’”
The 53-year-old actress will first appear in the season four premiere, which also stars The Daily Show correspondent Olivia Munn. Tune in to watch Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) on Friday, Sept. 20!
Also guest-starring this season will be The Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa.
