Thanks to playing a computer geek-turned-unwitting government agent on the surprise hit series, "Chuck" (NBC, 2007- ), actor Zachary Levi emerged from relative obscurity to become a rapidly rising star. His portrayal of über-nerd Chuck Bartowski won over both audiences and critics with his over-anxious charm and techno-geek knowledge - some of which mirrored Levi's offscreen persona. Before hitting the big time with "Chuck," Levi landed a role in the made-for-television romantic comedy "See Jane Date" (ABC Family, 2003) and was a regular on the sitcom "Less Than Perfect" (ABC, 2002-06). After a significant supporting role in the comedy sequel, "Big Momma's House 2" (2006), Levi landed his role on "Chuck" and was propelled to stardom, earning accolades from various national critics and adoration from fans who followed the show in an almost cult-like fashion. Because of this sudden popularity, Levi began landing roles more frequently on screens both large and small, becoming in the process an unlikely leading man.
