Chuck’s final season continues to get more intriguing. Last week producers revealed Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, will guest star as a villain at the start of the fifth season. Now EW has learned another actor from major sci-fi franchise is getting on board: Matrix star Carrie-Anne Moss.

The former Ms. Trinity will have a multi-episode arc as Gertrude Verbanski, “a former spy who now runs Verbanski Corp, the chief rival of Chuck’s new spy company. She’s ruthless and deadly, yet she also has a weak spot for one John Casey – her old rival.”

Producers of the NBC cult fav teased to Casey (Adam Baldwin) getting a love interest for the final batch of 13 episodes at Comic-Con last week, and earlier today news broke that Craig Kilborn would guest as a villain on the show. After The Matrix trilogy, Moss appeared in Disturbia and has done voice over on several videogame titles.
