Buster's Turn! Tony Hale Cast on Chuck, Samantha Who?

Buster's Turn! Tony Hale Cast on Chuck, Samantha Who?

Remember that week when Arrested Development alumni were getting cast in things all over the place? Well, possibly the wackiest member of the Bluth gang — Tony Hale, who played mama's boy Buster — was nowhere to be found. But no more! The Hollywood Reporter made my morning with its story that Hale has landed recurring roles on two series, NBC's Chuck and ABC's Samantha Who?

On Samantha, Hale will play Andy Adams, a new doctor for amnesiac Samantha (Christina Applegate). OK, fine. But what I'm really ready for is his turn on Chuck: He's playing Emmett, a new assistant manager at Buy More who surely will have numerous chances to torture Chuck, Morgan, and the gang. According to the Reporter, Emmett makes his entrance as an efficiency expert sent in from corporate to whip the Buy More into shape but ends up staying on when he realizes just how poorly the store is run.

Neither of those roles sounds quite as absurd as the hook-handed Buster, but I'm thrilled to get to see Hale back on TV after his all-too-short run as the best thing about Andy Barker, PI. Does his casting make you more curious about either show?

I LOVE Chuck and Tony will be an added bonus. Samantha Who was starting to lose me, but maybe I'll stay on for Tony.

To be honest all this casting news makes me think the AD movie isn't going to happen. :(

I'm glad to hear he was cast in these shows. But I would be much happier hearing some news on the Arrested Development movie!

I enjoy Samantha Who, but never watched it regularly past the first couple episodes. With Tony Hale signed on next season, maybe I'll start up again. I couldn't get past the Chuck pilot, but if Tony's on the show I might give it another shot.

That is awesome news. I stopped watching Chuck towards the end of the season, mostly because the writers strike had me confused. I'll definitely be watching next season. I never got into Samantha Who? though. "Sister's my new mother, Mother! And is it just me or is she getting hotter?" Arrested Development might be the most quotable show ever.
