Guest Stars – 08.02.10
Stacy Keibler tweeted this morning that sheâ€™ll be guest starring on Chuck this season, after giving us some clues yesterday. Ausiello has now confirmed that what most of us assumed, that sheâ€™ll play Greta in episode 4.03 (title TBA). Sheâ€™ll take on the role after Olivia Munn and Isaiah Mustafa, joining the ranks of Greta-of-the-week in the reimagined Buy More this season.
Keibler also revealed that sheâ€™ll be in the same episode that sees the return of â€˜Stone Coldâ€™ Steve Austin, and therefore Nicole Richie. The episode starts filming this week and will air in October.

Now this is big news: Nicole Richie and Steve Austin will be reprising their roles on Chuck this season, per Ausiello. Richie played Heather Chandler in fan favorite season 2 episode â€œChuck vs. the Cougarsâ€. She was Sarahâ€™s high school â€œmean girlâ€ who turned out to be involved in nefarious goings on at their reunion 10 years later. Sheâ€™ll appear in an episode slated for October (we believe itâ€™s episode 4.04) when a prison transfer goes wrong and Heather ends up at Castle for safe keeping. Per Ausiello, her arrival coincides with some serious bumps in Chuck and Sarahâ€™s relationship, which sheâ€™ll try to use to her advantage.
Steve Austin will reprise his role as Hugo Panzer from season 3â€²s â€œChuck vs. First Classâ€ later this season. No word on what Hugoâ€™s doing back in Chuckâ€™s world, but we have a feeling heâ€™ll be out for a little bit of revenge against the nerd who took him down in the airplane.
