FlashForward Grabs Gabrielle Union for Recurring Role

gabrielle-union-bv-newswire-400a022206In our interview last week with David Goyer and Dominic Monaghan, Goyer mentioned that they’d planned to introduce several more regular characters in the show after the first episode or two. Dominic Monaghan was the first such announcement, and now ABC has released the second via press release today. Gabrielle Union (Bring it On, Bad Boys II) will star in a recurring role on FlashForward this fall as Zoey. Her character will be a criminal defense attorney and will have a romantic arc on the show.

“We’re thrilled that Gabrielle is joining our cast,” said executive producer David S. Goyer. “When we met with her, we immediately knew she was our Zoey. She’s witty, soulful and beautiful. I’ve been wanting to work with her for a long time.”

Gabrielle Union is certainly not new to television. She began her acting career on the series Moesha and also had recurring roles on Sister, Sister and 7th Heaven and joined the cast of Steven Bochco’s City of Angels for one season. She’s guest starred on such shows as ER, Dave’s World, The Steve Harvey Show and Friends (as both Ross and Joey’s love interest).

FlashForward stars Joseph Fiennes as Mark Benford, John Cho as Demetri Noh, Jack Davenport as Lloyd Simcoe, Zachary Knighton as Bryce Varley, Peyton List as Nicole, Dominic Monaghan as Simon, Bran F. O’Byrne as Aaron Stark, Courtney B. Vance as Stan Wedeck, Sonya Walger as Olivia Benford and Christine Woods as Janis Hawk. It premieres on ABC on Thursday, September 24.
