Dominic Monaghan (Lost) is joining the cast of ABC's new sci-fi drama, FlashForward, which premieres on Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, the network announced.
The network doesn't say what role Monaghan will play. He isn't in the two-hour pilot episode but will apparently appear in later episodes.
Based on the SF novel by Robert J. Sawyer, the show asks: What would you do if you were given a glimpse of the future? Would you accept what you saw and live life to its fullest, or would you do everything in your power to change your destiny? In FlashForward, when the world's population is given a glimpse of its future, it forces everyone to come to grips with whether their destinies can be fulfilled or avoided.
FlashForward stars Joseph Fiennes as Mark Benford, John Cho as Demetri Noh, Jack Davenport as Lloyd Simcoe, Courtney B. Vance as Stan Wedeck, Sonya Walger as Olivia Benford, Brían F. O'Byrne as Aaron Stark, Christine Woods as Janis Hawk, Zachary Knighton as Bryce Varley and Peyton List as Nicole. The series' executive producers are David S. Goyer, Brannon Braga, Marc Guggenheim and Jessika Borsiczky Goyer.
