Rumor is that after the series catches up to the first flash
forward on April 29, 2010, there will then be subsequent flash forward into the future to keep the premise going.
Yeah, but maybe I shouldn't be giving that away. But it will
occur again. I think at the end of each season, all the characters will get another flash forward to deepen their storylines.

The actress who plays your wife, Sonya Walger, (Lost's Penelope), just got married in real life. What was her wedding gift?
Her gift was working very late on set the night before. That's
all we offered her.

Your character is a police detective, and the flash forward shows
glimpses of a crime board with photos, clippings and scribblings of clues. How much do you know about what's up there?
Everything is a clue to how it happened. I know the stories behind about twenty percent of what's up there. Everything on that board will lead us to who's behind this.

Which images have jumped out to you?
There's some beautiful images of a black swan, which is very
startling. There's a curious man with a widow's peek and very thick glasses and a very intense look. There's some beautiful paintings of serpents and weird-headed animals. It's going to get quite surreal.

What's your theory behind what caused the flash forward?
My theory changes by the minute. I don't know if it's sort of
a tectonic globalvshift, but I have come to the conclusion that there are people behind it.

Have you ever had a deja vu moment in your own life?
Constantly, but I read a paper in a science journal that completely debunked the idea of deja vu. Actually, it's a little glitch in your brain. It's already taken place but somehow you get a cross wire and it makes you feel like you've seen something way in the future.

Well maybe that's the secret behind the series.
(laughs) Maybe.


Dominic Monaghan is saying we have to wait until episode six or seven to see him.
Maybe not. He may appear in the show before people realize he's
in the show. We cast him before we shot the pilot.

What can you tell us about Dom's character?
Simon is a genius, He went to college when he was 14 years old.
He's a very conflicted character. He's very much the opposite of Charlie on Lost. People are going to see a different side of Dominic Monaghan, which is something he was pretty excited
about. Charlie was a boy, Dominic plays a man in this show.

Was that something he specifically wanted?
Yes. And it's what we wanted as well.

Does Simon have a last name and a wife and kids?
Those are plot points I can't reveal. There are many mysteries
surrounding his character.

Joseph Fiennes told us that after the series reaches the first flash
forward on April 29, there will be another flash forward.
Well, what I'll say is the cast doesn't know much about where
we're going and we've also deliberately leaked some misleads.

Everyone seems focused on the kangaroo seen hoping around the streets of downtown L.A. after the incident occurs. I assumed he'd just escaped down the hill from the L.A. zoo. Is there more to this creature?
That could be a possibility, but I will say the kangaroo will be
back. The kangaroo has a story.


Any new character's coming on board?
We will meet Dimitri's (John Cho) fiance, Zoey—the one
he talks about in the pilot. We're going to meet her in episode three. She's an attorney. [Editor's note: The character will be played by Gabrielle Union.]

Can a wedding happen in light of the incident?
They've been talking about their engagement since before
the blackout. We will deal with this issue head-on directly in episode three when me meet Zoey and see her flash forward.

An other new characters?
We know who is going to play Mark's (Joseph Fiennes)
mother. It's an actress we've already reached out to who is interested in doing it. If you look carefully in the Benford house you'll see pictures of her. She's already in the set dressing.

After weeks of rumors, Lost's Dominic Monaghan has come out of the closet as a new cast member on ABC's fall series, FlashForward. He breaks his silence to

Your character is named Simon. Does he have a last name?
Can't tell you. But I can say he's the joker in the pack. A little hard to predict. He's a snappy dresser, capable and cocky. And he's a man, not a boy.

At Comic-Con, they showed a quick clip of you in a scene in a police station. Can you describe what we saw?
Simon's in cahoots with Jack Davenport's character [Lloyd Simcoe]. Joseph Fiennes' character [Mark Benford] is beating up Jack's character and saying,'Who do you work with? Who's your partner?' and Jack's saying 'I'm not going to tell you that.' And then I walk in and say, 'You know what? I'm not scared of you guys. It's me.' So he's a cocky son-of-a-bitch.

When will that scene air?
I'm not sure. But I think I start on the series around episode six or seven.

What appealed to you about FlashForward?
I read the pilot and didn't think there was anything in particular that I could do in the script. I liked it. But my agent said, [the producers] really want to meet you. They asked what I wanted to do and I said, 'I want to play someone who's the opposite of Charlie,' because that's what I did after I finished "Lord of the Rings." Charlie was the opposite of Merry. It's important for me to continue to show the audience I can't be put in a box.

How many episodes will you be in?
I'm a season regular so I'm in the show for however many episodes they make this season.

You recently had breakfast with Lost producer Damon Lindelof. Were you discussing your return to the show?
Damon and I are friends, and he has some projects he's going to be doing in the future. Lost has got only one year left. That was just a time when we hung out.

Well, would you want to go back if you were invited?
Sure. You can't close doors in this business. It's just not how you do it. I would never say I wouldn't do it.

Do you know the secret behind how Lost ends?
I know some stuff, sure. Coming to the end of the season, Damon's been a little bit freer with some information. But I don't know everything.

Talk more about the possibility of returning to Lost.
I think they closed the door well on my character, and I would only go back based on the door opening in a way that complements my character. There's a few things that they would need to do. Damon and I talk a lot about the romance and legacy that Charlie's left behind. If he were to come back, this would be the final chapter. We would need to jump through a few more hoops before we get there.

“Lost” alum Dominic Monaghan is joining the cast of ABC’s new fall drama, “FlashForward,” the network confirmed Friday at Comic-Con.

There had been speculation that Monaghan would be added to the action drama ever since he was featured in the “ABC House” promo campaign this spring despite the fact that his character on “Lost” had drowned.

ABC has been so high on “FlashForward,” slated to premiere Sept. 24, that it began airing promos for it during “Lost” before the show was officially picked up to series in May.

Based on Robert J. Sawyer’s novel, the Joseph Fiennes-starring series chronicles the aftermath of a global event in which everyone blacks out for 2 minutes, 17 seconds and has mysterious visions of six months into the future.

Co-starring on the series are John Cho, Jack Davenport, Courtney B. Vance, Sonya Walger , Brian F. O’Byrne, Christine Woods, Zachary Knighton and Peyton List.

Aside from “Lost,” Monaghan is also known for his role as Hobbit Meriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. He recently appeared in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and guest starred on “Chuck.”

The series executive producers are David S. Goyer, Brannon Braga, Marc Guggenheim and Jessika Borsiczky Goyer (”Revelations”).
