The latest casting coup for Chuck comes in the form of English footballer-turned-actor Vinnie “The Axe” Jones. Best known for roles such as Juggernaut in X-Men: The Last Stand, Jones will appear as Karl Stromberg in episode 3.02 of Chuck, “Chuck vs. the Three Words“. Karl (originally called Kurt) is a dangerous arms dealer, devoid of emotion except when it comes to the love of his life – Carina (returning guest star Mini Anden).
Jones also has a series in the works, based on an upcoming comic book series by Howard Chaykin. The as yet untitled series centers on Jake Noble, an international spy who teams with his long-lost daughters he never knew existed. Welcome to the spy world, Vinnie!
