'Lost' Actress Joins ABC's 'Flash Forward'
Sonya Walger, Christine Woods added to pilot cast
Sonya Walger, who has a key recurring part on "Lost" as Penny Widmore, will take the female lead in "Flash Forward." Christine Woods has also joined the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Elsewhere, Jessica Collins ("The Nine") has joined a pilot for a political thriller at AMC.
"Flash Forward," based on Robert J. Sawyer's sci-fi novel, begins with a science experiment gone awry causing everyone in the world to pass out for a couple of minutes -- during which time they experience a vision of the future. Walger will play the wife of an FBI agent ( Joseph Fiennes) who's bothered that her vision includes another man.
In addition to "Lost," Walger has starred in HBO's "Tell Me You Love Me" and has had recurring parts on "CSI: NY" and "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles."
Woods ("House," "Welcome to the Captain"), meanwhile, will play another FBI agent whose work leads to a break in discovering what caused the mass blackouts.
AMC's latest pilot centers on a think-tank analyst who uncovers the nefarious machinations of a secret society. Collins will play the analyst's assistant. The cast also includes Miranda Richardson, Lauren Hodges and Christopher Evan Welch.
