Chuck's latest casting coup is a dream come true: The NBC spyomedy has tapped the original Freddy Krueger - a.k.a. Robert Englund - to guest-star in next month's Halloween episode, sources confirm to me exclusively.
Englund will play Dr. Stanley Wheelwright, an evil scientist who can make your waking life a nightmare. He'll appear in this season's sixth episode, titled 'Chuck Versus Aisle of Terror.'Â
To recap, Chuck's other notable season 4 hires include Linda Hamilton, Timothy Dalton, Eric Roberts, Lou Ferrigno, Olivia Munn, Nicole Richie, Old Spice Guy, and Dolph Lundgren.
Chuck's new season kicks off on Monday, Sept. 20.
