The Birth of a Superhero: Televisionary Talks to Zachary Levi of NBCs "Chuck"

While the holidays might be over now, there's at least something to look forward to with the return of several television series over the next few weeks. Not to mention the much anticipated arrival of Season Three of NBC's Chuck (my advance review of which can be read here).

I had the opportunity to visit the set of Chuck back in the fall, when the start of Season Three seemed uncertain (remember when we weren't going to get any Chuck until March?), and had the chance to sit down with the cast for a series of video interviews. (You can view my interview with Yvonne Strahovski here.)

Given that the holidays have just wrapped, I'm giving Chuck fans a little extra treat this year in the form of a condensed nine-minute video interview I did with Mr. Chuck Bartowski himself, Zachary Levi.

Watch as I sit down with Zachary Levi on the series' courtyard set to talk about what's coming up on Season Three of Chuck, the eleventh hour renewal, Chuck's relationship with Sarah, the new Intersect 2.0, the birth of a superhero, and more.



Season Three of Chuck launches January 10th at 9 pm ET/PT with a two-hour premiere before moving to its regular timeslot Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on January 11th.

Thanks Jace! The new Intersect will be a showcase vehicle for Zach on all fronts. The true measure of his acting range will be unleashed!

Less than 2 weeks to go now. WooT!

Happy New Years to you!

Another great nugget Jace, thanks!

I just love Zach's passion and warmth he has for this show and it's fans. The fact that we love a guy like Zach himself only helps to makes us love the character he plays more. What a stand up, class act he is and he deserves all the accolades, praise, and love in the world. Please make sure to let him know how much we support and root for him.

Can't wait to see how Season 3 unfolds!

Words can't express how excited I was when my favorite show got saved by us fans! It was disheartening to learn we wouldn't see any new episodes until March but when I heard it would be Jan. I couldn't believe it! For once I have something to look forward to in Jan. Can't wait to see the new Chuck! Love you and all the cast! See you Jan. 10th

Just spent New Year's Day re-watching the last few eps of Chuck... Love the interview and I adore that Levi quoted "The Little Mermaid."
Bring on Jan 11th! (Well Jan 12th for me in Australia)

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
