Summer Glau Cast in CHUCK

Summer Glau CHUCK

Raise your pocket protectors to the roof fellow nerds, because Summer Glau is set to appear in this season of CHUCK, according to EW.com.

Summer Glau, famous in nerd herds (oh yeah, I went there) as both the awesome kick ass psycho prodigy River Tam in Joss Whedon’s doomed but deadly Firefly and as the Terminator Cameron in the television series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, is set to play an undercover agent in the Buy More in the eighth episode of this (the fourth) season.

She will be playing Greta, a cover for a spy which will be played by a different actor every week. Other actors who filled in the role of Greta include Olivia Munn, Isaiah Mustafa and Stacey Kiebler.

“Greta can be a guy or a girl, which is brilliant,” Zachary Levi explained to EW.com’s Michael Ausiello. “The Buy More has now been taken over by the CIA and it’s a fully functioning operation by the government, so there are these constant agents that are in the store. First it was Olivia Munn, who looked hot in her little Nerd Hereder outfit, and [next was] Isaiah, who was a hoot to work with.”

What do you think of Summer’s casting? (I warn you: be very careful about how you answer this question). If you’re not a regular viewer, would this entice you to tune in to Chuck, or will you wait until her NBC show The Cape premieres in the midseason? Let me know in the comments below!
