After appearing on NBC’s spy series "Chuck" for three years as a recurring character, Gen. Beckman has new marching orders, reports Entertainment Weekly.
The character, played by Bonita Friedericy, has been promoted to full time, according to the story.
As Gen. Beckman, Friedericy issues the orders to the CIA and NSA agents on the show, not unlike Charlie’s job on "Charlie’s Angels," only she appears on camera–usually sitting at a desk. Now, as a full-time cast member, she’s likely to be seen even more.
According to co-creator Chris Fedak, “We’ll see her legs in the first episode. She gets to walk around.”
