In celebration of the return of Chuck on NBC tonight for its final season, let me share a link to Mike Friesen’s blog. Mike shared an excerpt from an interview in GQ with Zachary Levi, the actor who plays Chuck, about what it is like being a Christian in Hollywood. Levi says, among other things, “A lot of people, especially Christians, want to put you in this box of being a Christian actor, and I don’t believe in it. You do yourself and everyone else a big disservice when you start thinking about it as “Christian art.” That’s why most Christian art is bad. They don’t put a premium on the “art.” They’re banking on it being Christian art, which I think is abusing faith.” The interview is actually from last year, but still of interest.
