Trinity is coming to ‘Chuck.’ Well, not exactly, but ‘Matrix’ actress Carrie-Anne Moss will be joining the fifth and final season of NBC’s hit spy comedy in a recurring role, according to a report in TVLine.
Moss will play Gertrude Verbanski, a deadly owner of a private spy firm that’s in competition with Chuck and Sarah’s new operation. TVLine reports that Moss’s character will be a romantic foil and rival to John Casey, and that casting breakdowns describe her as “Miranda Priestly meets Lara Croft, with a rather wicked sense of humor.”
Moss joins a pantheon of sci-fi legends ‘Chuck’ has been able to recruit as guest stars. Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in ‘Star Wars,’ signed on for the Season 5 premiere earlier this week. Other luminaries have included as James Bond (Timothy Dalton), Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), Superman (Brandon Routh), Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) and Number Six (Tricia Helfer).
