Comic-Con 2011: Mark Hamill Joins 'Chuck,' Plus Morgan's Intersect Training (Video)
The Chuck panel at San Diego Comic-Con Friday made a big announcement. Star Wars legend Mark Hamill has been cast as the first villain of Season 5. He’ll appear in the season premiere on Friday, Oct. 21 at 8 p.m.
Hamill has been doing a lot of voice work lately with the Batman: Arkham City video game and the animated series, Regular Show on Cartoon Network. He also has a few projects in the works, including Sushi Girl, Airborne, and Thelomeris.
As Chuck is going into its final season, “everything will change,” says exec producer Chris Fedak. The first major change is of course Morgan (Joshua Gomez) is now the intersect. Check back here for a full report on the panel later.
For now, watch the hilarious training video made expressly for Comic-Con below.
