'Chuck' Star Takes Lead Role in Fox Comedy Deadline

The star of NBC’s “Chuck” has been cast as the male lead in a Fox comedy, lifting a contingency on the project, reports Deadline.com.

Zachary Levi, who plays the title character in "Chuck," joins the Fox pilot "Let It Go." Levi will play the husband in the project, which is an ensemble comedy about a married couple, his best friend and his wife's sister as they deal with society's rules, the story says.

The casting marks a return to half-hour comedy for Levi after his role on ABC's "Less than Perfect," from which he jumped to the comedic spy drama "Chuck," which is ending its fifth and final season on NBC, the piece adds.
