Zachary Levi Embraces Villain Role
Joins the Cast of Psych: The Movie
This is a total dream come true for this Psych fan. I have loved and adored Zachary Levi for years. Seeing Levi cast in this role has me excited, because I can’t wait to see him act with this cast. This is totally in his wheelhouse. Psych was a show that always brought on amazing guest stars. Especially in the final season, getting both Billy Zane and Val Kilmer to round the season out. I always hoped to see Levi in the show. When Psych was originally on, scheduling conflicts prevented him from guest starring.
However, no such conflicts exist now. Zachary is going to be playing the Thin White Duke. This will be the main antagonist of the movie. This character has been described as a “Ruthless, mysterious, and dashing villain of the highest order.” In the two-hour movie, fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his best friend Burton “Gus” Guster (Dulé Hill) reunite with their friends over the holiday season after The Thin White Duke targets one of their own.
The Reveal Video
The news of the casting was dropped by Dule and James on twitter in a small video they filmed. In the video, Hill and Roday present Psych-Os with a pop quiz as Roday raises a pineapple and asks “What’s that?” Out of nowhere, a surprisingly blond Levi walks behind them and says, “I believe that’s a pineapple. Isn’t that right Chucksters?” “Whaaaaaat!” Hill and Roday say as Levi slinks off camera, which, to be fair, is the only response possible in reaction to Levi’s appearance.

Honestly, this is a dream pairing. Though different at the core, Psych and Chuck shared many similarities. Unlikely goofball heroes, geeks and pop culture nerds, and a love for all things pineapple. I cannot wait to see how this all comes together in December.
