Top 10 Disguises Worn by Adam Baldwin on Chuck

Adam Baldwin on Chuck

The second season of Chuck is just about over. In preparation of Monday night’s season finale, I want to celebrate with a special tribute to Adam Baldwin, my favorite actor on the show.

Adam Baldwin plays an hilariously ill-tempered NSA agent named John Casey. Casey’s job is to get Chuck in and out of trouble as the government uses Chuck for the secret intel in his brain. When Chuck goes on a mission, they frequently show John Casey in some silly disguise as he keeps an eye on Chuck.

I thought it would be fun to take a look at the best disguises worn by Adam Baldwin during the last two seasons of Chuck! He’s had to do so many funny things. If we see a good disguise during the finale, I’ll be sure to add it to this list. I should probably mention that I didn’t include the green Buy More shirt (shown above) in the list, since he wears that in almost every episode. So, without further ado…

The Top 10 Disguises Worn by Adam Baldwin on Chuck


#10 – Business Man (Ep. 215: Chuck Versus the Beefcake)

Business Man

Here’s Adam Baldwin dressed up as a businessman. Admittedly, not much of a costume, but I do love his disguise: A coffee latte! LOL, without that he would totally get noticed. It’s all about your environment.

#9 – Cable Guy (Ep. 213: Chuck Versus the Suburbs)

Cable Guy

When Chuck goes on a mission into the suburbs, Adam Baldwin lurks around as the local cable guy. A perfect cover! I love how he pops out the window and interrupts them. Chuck always seems so surprised when Casey shows up. Funny stuff!

Video Clip:


#8 – Hospital Orderly (Ep. 213: Chuck Versus the Broken Heart)

Hospital Orderly

Adam Baldwin would make a great hospital orderly. He mops the floor like a pro! So funny how Casey takes one for the team when the nurse says, “Room 806 didn’t make it to the toilet – ya mind?”

Heh, what’s a spy to do?

Video Clip:


#7 – Bartender (Ep. 103: Chuck Versus the Tango)


Adam Baldwin plays a bartender or waiter in several episodes. I chose this particular disguise because of the fun banter between Chuck and Casey. Once again, Chuck is surprised by Casey’s cover, but manages to maintain composure. “Uh, yeah. I’d like a martini, Barkeep – Shaken AND stirred.” And I love the look on Chuck’s face when Casey replies, “Would you like a cherry with that?” LOL!

Video Clip:


#6 – Plumber (Ep. 217: Chuck Versus the Predator)


Coming in at #6 we have Adam Baldwin as a plumber. He’s wearing a simple dirty jumpsuit, and the expression on his face is priceless.

And what’s in the bag he’s holding? Eww, we’re probably better off not knowing. I like how he calls his team a “bunch of nancies” when they complain about their filthy disguises.

Video Clip:


#5 – Martial Arts Student (Ep. 209: Chuck Versus the Sensei)

Martial Arts Student

Adam Balwin looks pretty awesome in this wig and groovy goatee. And while technically this isn’t a disguise for John Casey, but rather a flashback to his early years as a Chuck Norris look-alike, I still rank this outfit as a solid #5 for Adam Baldwin.

Video Clip:


#4 – Nerd (Ep. 219: Chuck Versus the Dream Job)


Ah, here we have the classic nerd disguise, and Adam Baldwin wears it well. With a plaid shirt and nerdy glasses (the straps are a nice touch), he fits right in with the computer expo crowd. I love how Chuck doesn’t notice them at first and has to do a double take (very well played by Zachary Levi).

Video Clip:


#3 – Bellhop (Ep. 207: Chuck Versus the Fat Lady)


LOL, this is one mean-looking bellhop. Poor Adam Baldwin! This disguise totally cracked me up.

I guess I should do research on fancy hotel traditions, but seriously – What’s with the outfit? And the hat?! It seems cruel to make bellhops dress this way.

Video Clip:


#2 – DJ (Ep. 204: Chuck Versus the Cougars)


Costume or no costume, this scene of Adam Baldwin as a DJ proves his character is the ultimate master of disguise. With just a microphone and his charisma, John Casey owns the place. I love the look on Chuck and Sarah’s faces as they watch him rock the house.

Since he’s not wearing much of a costume, I couldn’t give it number one. But it goes to show: The disguise doesn’t make you. YOU make the disguise.

Video Clip:


#1 – Maître d’ (Ep. 206: Chuck Versus the Ex)

Maître d

Coming in at a solid #1 we have Adam Baldwin as a maître d’. He looks so funny in this wig, and the soul patch under his lip is a nice finishing touch. I remember bursting out laughing when I first saw this disguise.

I love how Chuck hands Casey a dollar and pats him on the cheek, saying, “Thank you, Jonathon.” Heh, you just know John Casey is steaming inside. Adam Baldwin and Zachary Levi really play off each other quite well.

Video Clip:


Honorable Mentions (in no particular order)

Chauffeur (Ep. 104: Chuck Versus the Wookiee)

Doctor (Ep. 108: Chuck Versus the Truth)


Nerd Herd (Ep. 205: Chuck Versus Tom Sawyer)


Masseur (Ep. 208: Chuck Versus the Gravitron)


Waiter (Ep. 204: Chuck Versus the Cougars)


Casino Dealer (Ep. 111: Chuck Versus the Crown Vic)


Scientist (Ep. 209: Chuck Versus the Sensei)

Tune in for the exciting season finale of Chuck on Monday night! And keep your fingers crossed for a third season – NBC should be announcing their decision soon. This show really needs to stay on the air, for more Adam Baldwin disguises, if nothing else. *fingers crossed*

  6. manny says:

    No problem, nessa, that would be great. Let’s save Chuck!

  7. John Casey says:

    The word you are looking for is “Maître d'” not “maitrede”. Maître d’ is a French phrase shortened from Maître d’Hotel, meaning Master of the Hotel.

  8. manny says:

    Hey, thanks John Casey – I’ll fix it!

  9. Soom says:

    The Maître d’ was so good that when I first saw the episode, it took me a few minutes to recognize him.

  10. Ali says:

    I love them all. He’s a gift to the ent. world and everyone else.

  11. Chris says:

    Yes, yes! A video. And you can call it “The Many Faces of John Casey”.

  12. Kevin says:

    Is it just me or did the Matre D – outfit make hime look like Billy Ray Casey.

  13. Mark says:

    The best thing about all these disguises is how bad they are! He looks the same in all of them and they do nothing to hide his military bearing. Great stuff!

  14. Jessy says:

    Oh my god, I love Casey. He’s hilarious.

  15. shafzril says:

    im LOL when watching hes being bellhop.

  16. turgah says:

    there’s still the window cleaner and the nerd-chic version on Dream Job 😀

  17. This list absolutely slayed me and you nailed No. 1. I had to rewind my DVR after a few seconds after the Maitre D’ was revealed because I wasn’t entirely sure it was Casey. It also made me laugh the hardest, although DJ, Martial Arts student and Nerd were also up there on the laughometer as well. Thanks for this.

    Save “Chuck”!

  18. tvcouchpotato says:

    The Maître d’ disguise was my favorite. It didn’t even look like Casey. I laughed out loud the second I realize it was him! I loved his attitude while he was wearing the disguise, too. What would Chuck be like withouth Adam Baldwin ? I shudder to think. He’s great!

  19. Deanna says:

    These were all great, but the nerd was the best!

    Casey is Buff Nerd and Sarah is Hot Nerd. 😉

    Did ya see them GUNS on that nerd? LOL! Nerdwear or not, them muscles showed in that shirt.

    Casey has the best quotes too! “Operation Moron is over??” LOL!

    Special ops Casey was great in the finale.

    LOVE THIS POST!! Casey is my favorite character on the show and this post sums everything about him, as weird as it sounds.. 😛 DJ Casey and Nerd Casey are the best!

  22. Bonny says:

    Haha, this is awesome. Casey is my favorite.

  23. A says:

    Oh he can be my masseuse any day!

  24. Bruce Lee says:

    The Maitre D was the best. I didn’t even recognize him at first when I watched that episode way back when.

    John Casey is my favorite character from the show, as well. Adam Baldwin is the BEST!

  25. meghan says:

    OMG Casey is soooo hot.

  26. Lintje says:


  27. verkisto says:

    Great article. Don’t know how this article got under my radar. Does the underwear count as a disguise? Guess not. 😉
    And, yes, I’m one of those annoying “spelling” people. Casey = masseur; Sarah = masseuse.

  28. manny says:

    Hi Verkisto, thanks so much for the interesting spelling tip! I’ll make the correction.

  29. evey says:

    Bravo!!What a work!! Thanks a lot.

    I’m in love with Adam Baldwin since “Chuck”:)

  30. Emma says:

    I love this page, especially because it has the video clips AND the pictures. I love Adam Baldwin <3

  31. Dominic says:

    does John Casey wear a toupee during Chuck?

  32. Hope says:

    What would this show be without Adam Baldwin? he’s the best. I love how he’s not afraid to take chances and look funny for our benefit. Kudos to him I’ve got such a thing going on for him and it’s not even funny. =) love that guy.

  33. Looopy says:

    Do you have a cap of a Season 1 (I think) shot of Adam in a gold kimono trimming his beloved bonsai tree? Or have I hallucinated the whole thing?

  34. manny says:

    Looopy, I might – do you recall what episode that’s from?

  35. Lucy says:

    I love Adam Baldwin/John Casey!

    My favorite was the DJ. He cracks me up every time!
    Awesome list. I would have chosen the same order that you did.
