‘Chuck’ cameos to include stars of ‘Green Mile,’ ‘Night Court’


What do Michael Clarke Duncan (left) and John Larroquette (right) have in common besides random cameos in movies fronted by stars of “Saturday Night Live”?

jl2.jpgmcd.jpgWell, as you probably already know by now from reading the title of this post, the two will be making appearances on “Chuck” this fall.

As a fan of “30 Rock,” I’ll be the first person to say that stunt-casting rules when it comes to well-written shows, especially comedies.

TV Guide quotes Chuck himself, Zachary Levi, who says Duncan “plays a great bad guy” and Larroquette portrays “a spy debonair who teaches me how to seduce women.” Although Duncan, who earned an Oscar nod for his performance in “The Green Mile,” can be engaging, the prospect of Larroquette’s role sounds particularly funny — right in line with his Emmy-winning performances as the lecherous Dan Fielding on “Night Court.”

As for “Chuck” Season 2.0, Levi tells TV Guide this intriguing bit:

It’s twice the action, twice the drama and twice the romance. It’s Chuck squared. … Chuck dies, twice. It’s crazy.

Whoa! Whatever that last part means! Could Chuck, too, be getting the Bryce Larkin treatment?

Oh, and in case you were wondering about the “SNL” movie cameos, Duncan was in Will Ferrell’s “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” and Larroquette was in Bill Murray’s “Stripes.”
