Throwing choice chum to the assembling Comic-Con crowd, NBC’s ‘Chuck‘ is keeping the guest-casting news coming. The latest names to make the spy guy’s list: Geek goddess Olivia Munn (‘Attack Of The Show’) and celebutante Nicole Richie (‘The Simple Life’).

Richie of course has mixed it up with Chuck – or, more specifically, his partner in spying – before, when she guested in a November 2008 episode as Heather Chandler, an old high-school nemesis of Sarah’s. Richie will reprise that same role for an episode this October, says EW.com, when extreme circumstances return Heather to the Castle – and at a rather unfortunate time in Chuck and Sarah’s nascent romance.

‘Chuck’ fans won’t have to wait as long to set their sights on Munn. She’ll guest-star in the September 20 season opener as a CIA agent who teaches Chuck and Morgan a thing or two. That’s the same episode in which ‘Rocky IV’ baddie Dolph Lundgren plays a Russian villain.
