GOLDEN GLOBE WINNER SCOTT BAKULA ('QUANTUM LEAP') GUEST-STARS AS CHUCK'S ESTRANGED DAD IN MULTI-EPISODE ARC ON NBC'S ACTION-COMEDY SERIES 'CHUCK' THIS SPRING

UNIVERSAL CITY, CALIF. - January 26, 2009 -- Golden Globe Award-winning actor Scott Bakula ("Quantum Leap") will guest star as Chuck and Ellie's (Zachary Levi and Sarah Lancaster) estranged dad on NBC's action-comedy series "Chuck" (Mondays, 8-9 p.m. ET) in a multi-episode arc scheduled for broadcast later this spring.

In the storyline, Chuck made a promise to his sister, Ellie that he was going to find their dad in time for her wedding. But when he does find him, Chuck discovers that his dad is not necessarily a guy who wants to be found. He's living in a trailer, he's disheveled, he's paranoid and he's claiming constantly that Ted Roark (guest star Chevy Chase) -- who he used to work with -- stole all his ideas from him. In addition, Ted Roark has now become a super-successful software billionaire while Chuck's dad has become an eccentric, living in the shadows.

Consistently recognized for his stellar work across a variety of media, versatile Hollywood everyman Bakula continues to remain popular among his acting peers and fans alike. On tap are a feature film, a new television series, and a couple of guest spots. He stars opposite Matt Damon in the Warner Bros film "The Informant," based on the true story of the highest-ranking corporate whistleblower in U.S. history. Helmed by Steven Soderbergh, the film will hit theaters September 2009.

Bakula will return to the small screen for the cable original series "Men of a Certain Age" in January 2010. Starring alongside him are Ray Romano and Andre Braugher. The dramedy will focus on three college buddies who are each experiencing their own form of mid-life crises.

Over the past couple of years, Bakula has been busy on the small screen and returning to his roots on the stage. Last year he starred in "Dancing in the Dark" at the famed Old Globe Theater in San Diego, and before that he finished a critically acclaimed run in Jane Anderson's "Quality of Life" at the Geffen Playhouse. His other recent theater credits include "No Strings" at UCLA's Freud Playhouse and the Tony Award-winning musical "Shenandoah" at the Ford's Theater in DC.

Bakula's recent television credits include the Emmy-winning "Boston Legal," "The New Adventures of Old Christine," Tracey Ullman's "State of the Union," and in the cable movie adaptation of Nora Robert's best selling book "Blue Smoke."

Prior to that, Bakula served a four-year charge as Captain Jonathan Archer in "Star Trek: Enterprise," the fifth installment in the "Star Trek" television franchise. For his work on "Enterprise," Bakula garnered a People's Choice Nomination for "Favorite Male Performer in a New Television Series" as Captain Archer, the physical and intensely curious leader who wasn't afraid to follow his gut.

Perhaps best known for his five-year stint on the innovative series "Quantum Leap," Bakula's performance brought him a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama Series, four Emmy Award nominations, three more Golden Globe Award nominations, and he was honored an unprecedented five times by the Viewers for Quality Television. Today, "Quantum Leap" remains one of the most popular series in syndication around the world.

Bakula has also won praise for his work in a variety of feature film roles, including New Line Cinema's "Life as a House," the independent film "Ghost of a Chance," 1999's Oscar-winning Best Picture "American Beauty," the supernatural thriller "Lord of Illusions," "Major League: Back to the Minors," New Line Cinema's "Mi Familia/My Family," Hollywood Pictures' "Color of Night," "A Passion to Kill," and Paramount's football comedy "Necessary Roughness." He made his feature film debut in 1990 starring opposite Kirstie Alley in Castle Rock's comedy "Sibling Rivalry" for director Carl Reiner.

"Chuck" is co-created and written by Josh Schwartz ("The O.C., "Gossip Girl") and Chris Fedak, and is executive-produced by Schwartz, McG ("Charlie's Angels," "We Are Marshall"), Fedak and Scott Rosenbaum. "Chuck" is produced by College Hill Pictures, Wonderland Sound and Vision, in association with Warner Bros. Television.
