Brandon Routh (aka Superman) will be guest starring on Chuck. You’ll see him in the fourth episode of season three, which is titled “Chuck Versus Operation Awesome” (Good luck, man!). This ep airs on January 18th, 2010 and also guest stars Angie Harmon. I thought that “Superman Returns” was boring even though it had Parker Posey, and the last thing I saw Routh in was a pretty terrible movie with Sophia Bush called “Table for Three”. So, he has a lot to prove. As in, try not to suck so much Routh. Although usually it’s the material that’s bad. And in the case of Chuck, there’s no problem with the material. Luck is on Routh’s side. Now, please – let me watch the last fifteen minutes of The Bachelor. I can’t believe this show is still on. These rose ceremonies make me laugh.
Episode Synopsis: TO SAVE AWESOME FROM THE RING, CHUCK MUST TEACH HIM HOW TO BE A REAL SPY—ANGIE HARMON (“LAW & ORDER“) AND BRANDON ROUTH (“SUPERMAN RETURNS”) GUEST STAR—When Awesome (Ryan McPartlin) is mistaken for a super spy by the evil Sydney Price (guest starAngie Harmon ), Chuck (Zachary Levi) must become his handler and show him the spy ropes.
