Lisa LoCicero Guests on Chuck – added 03.08.11
General Hospital fans will see a familiar face when they tune into Chuck in a few weeks. Lisa LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri on the daytime series, but will guest star as Daphne Peralta, wedding planner extraordinaire, in episode 4.21, “Chuck vs. the Wedding Planner.” Filming on the episode began yesterday, and Lisa seems to be enjoying herself already: “First day on set of Chuck. I’m a little in love with this Character.” [twitter]
Daphne is described as “a fashionable, fit, smart, sexy woman in her 30s or 40s who sports a New Jersey accent.” Looks like they cast the right woman! In a response to our query about her role, Lisa Tweeted, “just finished Jersey dialect fun with Yvonne Strahovski.. Could she be any lovelier?”
This episode is currently set to air on Monday, April 25 on NBC.
Gary Cole Returns to Chuck! – added 02.28.11
TV Squad just broke the news Chuck fans have been hoping to hear: Gary Cole is confirmed to return as Sarah’s father, Jack Burton! He’l return in episode 4.21, “Chuck vs. the Wedding Planner”, per Chris Fedak:
“We have a con at the heart of the [Jack] episode,” Fedak said in an interview. “There are actually multiple cons. We definitely put Chuck and Sarah out there – they could potentially get into a lot of trouble, given that they are government employees and that Jack has spent his life flouting the law. Getting mixed up with Jack again will prove to be a challenge for the duo, personally and professionally.
Fedak was also asked about whether we’ll see Mama Walker (or Burton or whatever her name is) on the show, but he didn’t “want to make any promises” about that happening this season. Read more from Fedak about tonight’s episode, Vivian’s storyline, and a Chuck/Sarah wedding at TV Squad.
