Hamilton will have a recurring role, and the mystery surrounding her character will be one the driving forces behind the next season. Her character will first be introduced in the season premiere on Sept. 20.
According to the show’s executive producer Josh Schwartz, the casting decision was based in part on fan suggestions.
“She’s been such an icon as an action-female badass mom,” Schwartz said. “The fans put it out there, and she heard about it, and was like, ‘I heard I’m Chuck’s mom.'”
In addition to Hamilton, Chuck will also see guest appearances by Olivia Munn, Isaiah Mustafa (from the Old Spice commercials), and Dolph Lundgren, as previously reported. Nicole Richie will also return as Sarah’s nemesis, Heather Chandler.
My Two Cents: Good to see them pay attention to what the fans wanted, and I think overall it’s a good casting decision.
Chuck fans, do you think it was a good choice to cast Linda Hamilton as Chuck’s mom?
