'Chuck' vs. the Awesome statue
Yes, that is indeed a 10-foot-tall statue of Capt. Awesome, with Awesome himself ( Ryan McPartlin) and Costa Gravas leader Generalissimo Goya ( Armand Assante) in front of it.
Monday's (Oct. 11) episode finds Awesome and Ellie ( Sarah Lancaster) traveling to the fictional country of Costa Gravas at the invitation of Goya. The generalissimo wants to thank Awesome for saving his life last season, and the statue is part and parcel of that. Chuck ( Zachary Levi) and Sarah ( Yvonne Strahovski) also tag along, hoping they might be able to work out the awkwardness that arose at the end of this week's episode.
So what's it like to have a larger-than-life statue of yourself made? "It was very surreal," McPartlin tells Zap2it. "... Zac looked at me and said, 'I am so jealous of your 10-foot statue.' I think that was my favorite part of it, because I'm jealous of Zac in a number of other ways."
You can witness the statue's unveiling at 8 p.m. ET Monday on NBC.
