2 More Join ‘Flash Forward’ Cast
Sonya Walger (Lost) will play the female lead in ABC’s Flash Forward, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Christine Woods (House) has also joined the cast in what is probably the hottest pilot currently in production.
Walger will play Ralph Fiennes’ wife, Olivia, “who is disturbed by her vision of being in love with another man.” Woods, meantime, will play Janis, a “computer-savvy FBI agent who helps to uncover a pivotal clue in the mystery.”
Robert J. Sawyer’s science fiction novel is being adapted by David S. Goyer (Blade), who will direct the pilot, Brannon Braga (Enterprise) and ABC Studios. The trade says the novel “chronicles the chaos that ensues after everyone in the world blacks out for two minutes and 17 seconds and has a mysterious vision of the future that changes lives forever.”
ABC has high hopes for the pilot which may become a companion series for Lost for the 2009-2010 television season according to the trade.
