Yvonne Strahovski to Co-Star in ABC’s ‘Astronaut Wives Club’

ABC’s upcoming Astronaut Wives Club is staging a Chuck reunion.

Chuck alum Yvonne Strahovski has booked a series regular role on the drama from Fake Empire’s Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The 1960s-set drama tells the real story of the women who stood beside some of the biggest heroes in American history during the height of the space race. The drama marks the first pilot Savage has written since she co-created The CW’s long-running Gossip Girl with Schwartz. The project is based on Lily Koppel’s best-selling novel published last summer. Janice Williams brought the project to Groundswell. Odette Annable, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Dominique McElligott, Desmond Harrington and Bret Harrison star.

Strahovski, who is awaiting word on whether the 24 franchise will continue on, will play Rene Carpenter, who is married to Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter. A mother of four, she’s strong and upfront and enjoys the limelight but is and ready to use it for personal gain. She enjoys being center of attention and is the only one of the wives singled out for her own magazine cover.

Astronaut Wives, which was picked up straight to series with a 10-episode commitment, was originally intended to air in the summer. The drama was pushed back to midseason. Lone Scherfig will direct.

Afternoon tea in my Alice in Wonderland mug. The Cheshire Cat disappears when you put hot water in. Except for his smile, of course. :-)



The Avengers as a Western

Steve is the Sheriff. Clint is his deputy. Tony is the Blacksmith. Natasha runs the Saloon. Bruce is the physician with a split personality and Thor gets into a hell of a lot of tavern brawls.

Together, however, they manage to bring order to the once corrupt town of Triskelion.

Remember The Avengers as a 70s Cop Drama? A Western might be cooler.


AU. Chuck and Sarah are partners in the con game. It’s an existence wrought with danger and violence. Every day could be their last. Every mission could be the end of the line.

One hundred years later, the ConVerse is back! In the form of the latest arc, Con Game Double Agent…

But who’s the double agent? What’s gonna happen? I don’t know! (Yes, I do. Moo ha ha.)

Part 1 is up now! And part 2 is following in a few days! And then, you know, part 3 and then 4…There are 8 parts…is what I’m saying.

And because this is important to me, and I still get a lot of feelings when I look at it, I have to thank watchchristmastv for making this Chuck Versus the Con Game graphic for me. I cried when she first sent it to me. And I still get ridiculously happy whenever I look at it. It’s just so sexy. Thanks so much, boo! So glad to have you as a buddy!

Oh and, uh…one more thing…

Welcome back to the ConVerse.

No worse than my comic book problem… ;)

LOL. But these are just from one trip—I have a box of postcards I’ve been collecting since I was a kid.

I may have a postcard problem. :-) Bounty from my #uktrip.

Two chapters of Finding Home done!  They’re running a bit shorter in terms of word count than the chapters in the previous stories, but they’re also jampacked with action.  :-)

At this point, I’m thinking the story will be five or six chapters total, so it’s likely I could start posting in a couple of weeks.
