Faster than a locomotive, Superman star Brandon Routh is rushing over to NBC.
The actor has signed on for a multiple-episode arc on Chuck, sources have confirmed to Michael Ausiello.
Routh’s character, Shaw, is an intriguing new spy. He becomes the leader of Operation Bartwoski, taking on the role of mentor to Chuck and vying for the affections of Sarah. Routh debuts in the season’s fourth episode.
Sadly, as of now, that won't be until some time next spring, as Chuck isn't scheduled to premiere until March.
