IGN: Brandon Routh Best TV Villain

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 by Iris with
IGN has named Brandon Routh's Daniel Shaw from NBC's CHUCK Best TV Villain of 2010!
From the moment Daniel Shaw (Brandon Routh) was introduced on Chuck, audiences were poised to hate him. Who was this handsome, skilled spy, who was daring to woo Sarah away from Chuck? Early episodes with Shaw were a bit shaky, as we were asked to believe in a relationship between Shaw and Sarah that didn't quite feel earned. But it turned out Chuck creators Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak had a great swerve in store -- and that rather than watching the rise of a strong hero, we were seeing the creation of an uber-villain. Shaw nearly killing Sarah and Chuck's save via gunshot was a hugely satisfying moment, even as it set the stage for Shaw to return stronger than ever, now powered by his own Intersect. Finally, Chuck had the kind of dark mirror image villain that is so fun to see in geek-friendly stories of this type.
