If playing a tech geek-turned-super spy out to protect national security on the hit show Chuck
isn't enough, Zachary Levi has signed up for another mission: Katharine McPhee
's unlikely costar and duet partner in her latest music video for "Terrified."
The song, penned by American Idol
judge Kara DioGuardi
, was originally recorded by singer-songwriter Jason Reeves for McPhee's second album, Unbroken
. But when the former Idol runner up
premiered her new video, it featured the 29-year-old Chuck
star cozying up to McPhee in a recording studio.
Turns out Levi actually has a background in musical theater. The budding singer grew up performing in community plays and musicals near his childhood Ventura, Calif., home before he became Chuck the spy.
