It’s true, according to USA Weekend (via SuperheroHype), because Chuck was given a longer season order (extended from 13 episodes to 19 – hell yes), star Zachary Levi, who was signed to play Fandral, one of the Warriors Three, had to drop the role. I am a huge fan of the Warriors Three, and a huge fan of Levi (has anybody seen Spiral? He’s awesome in it!), so I’m sad to hear that there was a chance he was going to play in the Thor movie, which sounds better and better every day. Apparently, Levi was even working out for the role – guess we’ll be seeing a buff Chuck this season.
Still, more Chuck is never a bad thing. Here’s hoping director Branagh can pull in another actor of Levi’s caliber for his movie!
