At today’s Chuck panel at Comic Con, we got a little video clip revealing that Mama Bartowski will be played by the legendary Linda Hamilton. Schwartz explained that they wanted to cast someone who “feels like she comes out of the same universe as the show”, someone Chuck and Morgan would be excited about seeing if they were real. (“Not that they aren’t,” he quickly amended when Zac and Josh started to object).
We’ll get a glimpse of Linda Hamilton’s Mama B in the season premiere, but don’t expect Chuck to track her down too easily. Chris Fedak says the focus of this season is searching for Mama Bartowski.
