We caught up with Chuck star Zachary Levi today in New York after his appearance on NBC's Today Show, and he said his character will be more kick-ass but will remain the same nice guy he always was.

"Be it like martial arts or playing a musical instrument or speaking a foreign language or something like, weapons, you know, so he's not the nice spy that he used to be, but he is," Levi said.

Levi teases some of the new guest stars, including Smallville's Kristin Kreuk and Superman Returns' Brandon Routh. Huh, Lana Lang and Clark Kent join Chuck!

And he has a special message for you loyal fans out there!

Chuck's two-hour season-three premiere airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
