If stunt casting is a way to get more people to watch a show, then let's hope it works tonight for NBC's hilarious Chuck. Nicole Richie makes her long-awaited guest appearance as a high school acquaintance of Sarah's, and all signs point to it being awesome. Here's a short list of reasons why it should be great:
- Richie's character is named Heather Chandler — ha!
- Heather turns up suddenly in Burbank and reveals a ton of information that could blow Sarah's cover, including her name and hometown.
- Through her, we get flashbacks to an awkward, mousy, braces-wearing version of Sarah.
- Heather was a total mean girl in high school, but she ended up marrying a nerdy classmate, played by Ben Savage.
- There's going to be a fight scene between Nicole and Sarah in the gym showers at their high school reunion.
Excited? Chuck's only gotten better since the new season began, and this episode looks to be no exception. To watch an extended preview with several of Richie's scenes, just read more.
