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)
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)
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!
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!
#5 – Martial Arts Student (Ep. 209: Chuck Versus the Sensei)
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.
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).
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.
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.
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*
I was late to the Twitter party. I also don’t do much photography, so Flickr was always out of the question. I’ve been on Facebook for awhile now, but haven’t used it for its costume powers. You might say I’m a tad old school. Funny, since I proud myself on my unbearably geeky nature that seems to have no end.
I’ve come to the light, however, and have seen the future of costume fans across the globe. The web has grown up a lot and is always giving out more tools to keep people together. With more and more collective genius mixing into the pool with the social revolution, it’s without hesitation that any costume fan can immediately jump into the mix.
So here’s our mash up of web tools that will put your disguise on the map and open the floodgates of costume fan goodness to you.
