NBC shows cast for present and future


Chevy Chase has been tapped for a three-episode arc on NBC's dramedy "Chuck."

Meanwhile, Upright Citizens Brigade player Aubrey Plaza has landed a co-starring role opposite UCB alumna Amy Poehler on NBC's upcoming comedy series.

Plaza also has been cast in the Universal comedy "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" opposite Michael Cera.

On the WBTV-produced "Chuck," Chase will play a Steve Jobs-type character accused by Chuck's father of stealing his ideas.

Chase is repped by Fortitude and Kritzer Levine Wilkins.

NBC's untitled Poehler project, from "The Office" masterminds Greg Daniels and Mike Schur, is set in the office of Amy (Poehler), deputy chairman of the Department of Parks and Recreation in Pawnee, Ind. Plaza will play April, an intern who shadows her.

In "Pilgrim," she will play Julie, a record store employee. She next appears in "Mystery Team," which premieres at Sundance. She is repped by CAA and 3 Arts. (partialdiff)
