Beyond just all the physical aspects of being the Intersect for the final season, for a while Morgan was finally the focal point of the show. Naturally, this forced to play the character differently than he has in the past. "I think there’s a chance obviously in television when you do enough seasons it can get a little--as an actor--you can kind of become unchallenged you just have to learn the character you know it so like the back of your hand, it just becomes, you know, you just kind of go on cruise control."
"This was fun because it forced me to just switch everything up and so I was excited. I was nervous at first, obviously for so many different reasons just getting the Intersect I thought was just a crazy turn. And something I wasn’t expecting."
"And then as I started to get the scripts and I saw this character becoming what he’s becoming and how it was affecting him, it’s nerve-wracking. Our fans are really loyal and they love Chuck, and I’m like, 'Oh, crap, I’m going to get things thrown at me for being a jerk.'"
"But that being said, you know, it’s your job..[and the audience is] not supposed to like Morgan, I think at this point. So, I kind of threw myself into that, and I said it’s - it was so much fun because it was a 180 from the Morgan of three or four seasons ago."
The interesting thing about Chuck is that it’s a show that has always been a 'bubble' show and on the verge of cancellation every season, but somehow managed to get a last minute miracle save every year. Now that this is it, the real final season of Chuck, the cast must be feeling a bit sad. On this thought, Gomez chimed in, telling us, “You know it’s obviously a question that gets asked a lot and it’s a great question because the end is nigh... every season, kind of every time we were approaching wrapping up it was sort of like we didn’t know if we were saying goodbye for good, or if just for a few months, and it was always this very tumultuous time.
