Title & More Details – added 09.17.11

We already know that Rebecca Romijn is the big name guest star, playing a rogue CIA agent who likes torturing people just a little too much, but here’s a new tidbit: her character could have been played by either a man or a woman. Way to be equal opportunity, Chuck writers! Joining in the fun is Simms, an intense, slightly creepy CIA agent who may be what Team Bartowski needs to defeat Romijn. Or not.

Casting News – added 09.15.11

EW.com just broke the news that Rebecca Romijn has signed on to guest star in Chuck episode 5.06 (title TBA), and her role is part of a storyline some fans have been speculating about since Chuck and Sarah started their own espionage firm.

Per EW, Romijn guests as “Robin Cunnings, an elite Special Agent with the CIA who’s as cold and calculating as she is sexy, and is known for her barbaric (yet highly effective) interrogation techniques.”  Cunnings is part of a rogue CIA group targeting Chuck to take the fall for “the crime of the century.” Dun dun dunnnnnnn!
