First Look: Chuck's Incredible Guest Star!


Chuck takes on green, mean fighting machine Lou Ferrigno on the September 27 episode of NBC's Chuck when the former Incredible Hulk guest stars as a bodyguard named Gerard. An altercation takes place when Chuck and Sarah go to Milan, Italy, on a mission and encounter Gerard.

"My character gets sidetracked when he falls in love. He's guarding an evil spy played by Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova," Ferrigno tells TV Guide Magazine. "When Chuck tries to discourage me, I try to take him down, but then he puts me in a trance."

Turns out Ferrigno's had some experience protecting and serving the people... read more

Grey's Anatomy Exclusive: What's Next for Mer and Der?

Grey's Anatomy

Inside Meredith and Derek's bedroom on the Grey's Anatomy set, a very naughty Patrick Dempsey climbs on top of his costar and friend of six-plus years, Ellen Pompeo, and admonishes there is to be "no thrusting." Joking that he's been "doing steroids" over his summer break, the pumped-up star plants one on Pompeo's lips before making an accusation that catches his leading lady off guard: "Did you just have a jelly doughnut?"

The lighthearted high jinks are welcome on a set that has been plagued with discontent for far too long... read more

Bold and the Beautiful Shocker: Is Susan Flannery Leaving?

Susan Flannery

The Bold and the Beautiful is famous for its gutsy storylines, and this one's a jaw-dropper. In the cliffhanger of the September 24 episode, control-freak matriarch Stephanie Forrester — played by four-time Emmy winner Susan Flannery — will find out that she has stage 4 lung cancer. Stephanie will stubbornly refuse treatment and decide to keep the dire news from her family, choosing instead to spend her final months checking off items on her bucket list: She'll throw herself a birthday party complete with a Silly Slide, ride the rollicking roller coaster at the Santa Monica pier... that sort of thing. Only Stephanie's archenemy Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) will be privy to the diagnosis — and that's by accident. TV Guide Magazine talked with B&B exec producer-head writer Brad Bell about this startling twist. And of course we hit him with the billion-dollar question — is Susan Flannery exiting the show? ... read more
