Chuck Me: Yvonne Strahovski Talks Season Three of "Chuck"

While I still don't have any news about when Season Three of Chuck will launch on NBC (January? March?), I do have a rare treat for Chuck-starved fans looking for something to tide them over until next year, when NBC will bring the action-comedy back to its schedule (now with six more episodes as well!)

I had the opportunity to visit the set of Chuck a few weeks back and those of you who follow me on Twitter have been anxiously awaiting any news from that visit.

So, I bring you the first of several video interviews with the cast of Chuck as I sit down with Yvonne Strahovski inside the Castle to discuss the felicitous Season Three Chuck renewal, love triangles, comedy and action, what's coming up for Sarah Walker, and much more.

Without further ado, I'll let Yvonne Strahovski fill you in on some non-spoilery Chuck goodness.



Season Three of Chuck will launch on NBC in 2010.

Woot! Very informative interview Jace. Thanks.

And though it goes under the D'uh Files for the umpteenth time - Yvonne is looking fine and very cute at the same time.

Can't wait for Season3.

Jace-

Fantastic interview, some excellent stuff throughout. I just hope the show doesn't lose it's comedic and fun aspect with all the apparent romantic drama. I find it extremely interesting that Sarah is now the one who apparently is going to have all of these "lady feelings" while Chuck just kind of drifts away deep into the spy world. Especially after Chuck was the one telling his father that "he loves her". Quite a role reversal!

Thank you for the great interview! I've been missing me some Chuck and this totally cheered me up. I can't wait for it to return...whenever that is!

Wow. Raw emotion and action stuff? I think Yvonne's on the wrong show. Haha. Here I was thinking she'd want to be in on the comedy because that's the strong point of Chuck. Great interview. Thanks.

Wow, great interview Jace!

Really thoughtful questions and a relaxed atmosphere produced a positive feel and was informative for a change. ;)

It must be hard to find questions that haven't been asked a million times before but will still elicit an interesting response.

You seemed a little tense though, although it's hard to blame you. ;)

Insightful questions. Thanks for the interview!

Best season 3 interview I've seen so far. Her talking about Sarah dreading chuck's goal of being a spy and trying to hold on tighter to him just makes me want to watch the new season even more! a lot of Yvonne's interviews are the same thing over and over but this one was a breath of fresh air.

Great questions, incredibly boring responses. She seemed dull and down. I know that's sacriledge to say, but it is truth.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
