MIGHTY CASEY:

'Chuck' co-star Baldwin relishes a serious role (Maureen Ryan, January 10, 2010, Chicago Tribune)

Veteran spy John Casey is a man of few words and many grunts.

And thanks to the deft performance of Winnetka native Adam Baldwin, Casey's grunts — which can signal everything from disgust to annoyance to occasional contentment — are one of the most entertaining things about the NBC action-comedy "Chuck," which returns with a delightful third season at 8 p.m. Sunday (the show begins airing in its regular time slot 7 p.m. Monday). [...]

As Season 3 begins, Chuck is trying to master his new array of skills, and Casey is still toiling at the Buy More. "Chuck" co-creator and executive producer Chris Fedak said the dynamic of Casey versus the Buy More loons was so fun that the writers couldn't resist writing more of those stories.

"John Casey's been out there for 20 years saving America, now he realizes just what he's been saving," Fedak said. "So it's tough for him."
