Those crafty casting showrunners from Chuck are at again.
From the Ausiello Files:
Question: I芒鈧劉m dying for some Chuck scoop! Give us a little tidbit, anything to tide me over until March!
Ausiello: Casting scoop! Emmy winner Armand Assante has been tapped to play a Castro-esque dictator who Casey has unsuccessfully tried to assassinate multiple times.
It is not clear at this time which episode Assante is guest starring on.
Updated 09.24.09: Assante is confirmed as playing Premier Allejandro Goya, the dictator of the fictitious country of Parador in Chuck episode 3.03, “Chuck vs. the Angel of Death”. Now that we know he’s an old foe of Casey’s, we speculate that he’ll be the catalyst for us to find out more about Casey’s pre-Team Bartowski espionage activities as previously teased. (Mel)
