Sarah will have a fight scene in a car.

Chuck Klosterman inspired the show's title. Plus, it was an everyman name.

Sarah will have a steamy relationship with another spy.
We'll learn that Jeff and Lester have a band called Jeffster.

Josh Schwartz
Chuck is reminiscent of Fletch.
• Since Chuck was preempted by Obama, Schwartz said, “It seems his first order of business is to destroy Chuck.”
Baldwin is a very detailed actor. The Reagan picture was his idea.
• "Chris Fedak is Casey. When he writes Casey's scenes--I've seen it--he writes with an angry face."
• A young fan asked if Casey got a robotic toe after it was blown off, and Schwartz replied, "He does now--as of today." Then the girl asks, "Does that mean he's like Darth Vader?"
• He admitted that all of the show's father figures are Star Trek actors.
• He wants to do an episode set at Comic Con, but it's difficult to maneuver.

Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah)
• The most fun she’s had on set was the shower scene with Nicole Richie.
• The worst was the rooftop scene with Michael Clark Duncan, because it was so hot and she was wearing a full-body black suit.
