Faster than a locomotive, Superman star Brandon Routh is rushing over to NBC.

The actor has signed on for a multiple-episode arc on Chuck, sources have confirmed to Michael Ausiello.

Brandon Routh

Routh’s character, Shaw, is an intriguing new spy. He becomes the leader of Operation Bartwoski, taking on the role of mentor to Chuck and vying for the affections of Sarah. Routh debuts in the season’s fourth episode.

Sadly, as of now, that won't be until some time next spring, as Chuck isn't scheduled to premiere until March.

Chuck Quotes

Sarah: Wow, I didn't think people still named their kids Chuck. Or Morgan, for that matter.
Chuck: My parents were sadists, and carnival freaks found him in a dumpster.
Morgan: But they raised me as one of their own!

Chuck: Uh, you know, Sis, the thing is, Morgan and I don't really feel like we're fitting my birthday party...'cause we don't know anybody, 'cause they're all your friends, and they all happen to be doctors.
Morgan: Doctors who don't really get our jokes!
Chuck: Well, your jokes
