|Packard, TI, Mackintosh|
Kyle Packard, Tim Isaacs, and Sean MacKintosh were members of Casey's Clinton-era special forces team, with their expertise being in special weapons, hand-to-hand combat, and electronics respectively, while John Casey was the team's tactician. The characters are presented as an homage to The A-Team, a comparison Chuck makes when Casey tells him and Sarah of them.
During a mission in Iran during 1999, they attempted to steal terrorist gold that they were ordered to destroy. Packard, T.I, and MacKintosh wanted it, but Casey thwarted his teammates and personally dragged them back to friendly territory for court-martial. They managed to escape, and tried to kill Casey several times before they finally gave up. At some point they went to work for Volkoff.When Chuck learned they may have had a connection to his mother, Frost, he orchestrated a complex plan to lure them into the open by faking Casey's death and funeral, in a scene that pays homage to the classic film Charade.
They take Chuck and Sarah hostage to bring Casey to the sealed vault holding the gold which only Casey's hand print will open. Chuck uses the wait time to ask them where Frost is being held prisoner, but the trio tells him that Frost is not a prisoner but Volkoff's right hand.
The three were ultimately defeated and recaptured by Morgan when he electrocuted them - and himself - to prevent them from recovering the gold and escaping.
Although the names evoke IT giants like Hewlett-Packard and the Apple Macintosh, if the A-Team parallel is carried through then Casey becomes Templeton Peck, a.k.a. Face.
Eric Roberts previously co-starred with Zachary Levi in the sitcom Less the Perfect (2002-2006) and Joel David More, a long time friend of Zachary Levi's, co-starred with him in the film Spiral (2007).
