CHUCK Scares Up Robert Englund

CHUCK wants to give us nightmares. Entertainment Weekly reports that the original Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund, has signed on to guest star in a Halloween-themed episode this season.

Englund will play Dr. Stanley Wheelwright, an evil scientist who can make nightmares become all too real. He will appear in the sixth episode of the new season, airing October 25.

Chuck is lining up so many terrific guest stars that I can’t wait for the new season. As previously reported, Timothy Dalton, Linda Hamilton, Olivia Munn, Eric Roberts, Lou Ferrigno, Stacy Keibler, Dolph Lundgren, Harry Dean Stanton, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and Nicole Richie are all also set to appear.
