Dominic Monaghan Joins The Cast of Flash Forward

http://flashforwardseason1.blogspot.com/June 8, 2009 - Last Friday, there was quite a lot of Internet chatter over a new ABC promo, featuring stars from several of the network's 2009-2010 season shows, including Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy), Courteney Cox (Cougar Town), Ed O'Neill (Modern Family) and… Dominic Monaghan?

Monaghan's presence caused a lot of confusion and speculation, because he's been gone from Lost for quite awhile. Add in him responding with, "I was" in the promo, when asked if he was dead, and many wondered if we were to take from this that Charlie was returning to Lost.

As it turned out, EW.com's Michael Ausiello discovered that rather than returning to Lost, the promo instead was referring to Monaghan's role on a new ABC series. Of course ABC has a rather notable ten new scripted series for next season, meaning there were a lot of possibilities as to what show Monaghan would be part of.

IGN has now learned what show Monaghan may be on and that it's one we already were quite intrigued by - Flash Forward.

Like others (including in our comments), we had thought Flash Forward seemed like a very strong candidate for Monaghan's secret show. Created by Brannon Braga and David Goyer, the high concept series is being positioned by ABC as something of a spiritual follow up to Lost and it's one of two geek-friendly series -- the other being the remake of V -- that would most mesh with the Lost fanbase Monaghan brings with him. Sources in the know regarding Monaghan's situation now tell IGN that indeed seems to be the case, and Monaghan will likely have a major role on Flash Forward.

We contacted ABC about Monaghan for an official response, and a spokesperson told us, "There is a lot of speculation out there right now, but we're not confirming any casting at this point."

Based on the novel by Robert J. Sawyer, Flash Forward's cast includes Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love), John Cho (Harold & Kumar / Star Trek), Sonya Walger (Penny on Lost) and Jack Davenport (the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy). The story follows what happens when a global event causes everyone on Earth to black out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds. The populace awakens to discover the many tragedies that occurred as a result of the phenomenon, while also infused with visions of their own future.

Flash Forward will air Thursdays at 8:00pm ET/PT on ABC this fall.

  1. Yay for the return of the rock star. Hugo needs a great friend, Clair a father, Kate and Jack should be happy, Sawyer should not return to his old ways, Locke should be related to Jack and Ben, pennys father should be the man trying to use the island for bad, Michael should get redeemed with a return in time with his son as young, no murders, no guilt flying home with only happy memories, walt should remember nothing, the island should be controlled by this group, a paradise with awesome powers and can freely return when they want, found by no one else, Sayid should marry nadi and Desmond and Penny should be the heros. You could also have Juliet hook up with Sawyer, he needs a good woman or with Kate and have Jack back with his wife.

    Go Lost. We got hooked a few weeks back. Watched seasons 1-4 in a few weeks, some in complete DVD packages but it started online. Really bummed 1-11,season 5 are not online. Bernard and Rose should have a bit bigger role with Rose leaving as a miracle worker.

    The island should remain, perhaps for a return in the future.
    Also believe the ff and of6 returned in season 4 plus writers strike, killed the ratings

    Love, peace and happiness all,
    Sheri and Frankii
