If you’ve been reading Collider for any length of time, you know we’re all huge fans of NBC’s Chuck. While getting any show on the air is hard, getting more than one season is even tougher. That’s why I’m beyond excited that Chuck is coming back for a 4th season this fall. And it’s not just because Zachary Levi and Joshua Gomez say “Collider” 10 times during the interview you’re about to watch. It’s because both Zachary Levi and Joshua Gomez are awesome together on screen and they’re both extremely grounded and two of the nicest people I’ve ever had the chance to interview. Also, they both waited around at last week’s Saturn Awards until Guillermo Del Toro was done doing interviews so they could get their picture taken with him. How many actors would have done that?
Anyway, during my backstage interview with Levi and Gomez, they talked about last season and the way things changed on the show. They also talked about the upcoming season, Comic-Con, will they change the Tron poster in Chuck’s bedroom to a Tron: Legacy poster, how disappointed they are that GDT isn’t doing The Hobbit, what did they see and love about this year’s E3 (they’re both gamers), and a lot more. If you’re a fan of Chuck, I promise you’ll love the interview. Hit the jump to take a look:
