Dominic Monaghan to Join Cast of ABC Series ... Grey's?

by at . Comments

Dominic Monaghan is appearing in ABC's new promo campaign, but according to EW, it has nothing whatsoever to do with Charlie Pace being resurrected on Lost.

But that's what the network wants folks to think.

Why? Because they're trying to keep under wraps the real reason he was playing table soccer with Patrick Dempsey, Courteney Cox, and Ed O'Neill in that clip.

Monaghan is featured in that spot because rather than coming back to Lost, where he starred for three seasons, he's actually joining the cast of another hour-long ABC drama series as a full-time regular. And ABC wants it to be a surprise.

A big surprise.

  • Dominic Monaghan
  • Poor Bambi

Our question: Why on earth wouldn't ABC want people to know which of its shows' casts would be augmented by Dominic Monaghan, a popular actor from Lost, and also the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the summer blockbuster X-Men Origins: Wolverine?

  • Could it be because the show Monaghan is joining is none other than Grey's Anatomy, and making the announcement could spoil the show's summer cliffhanger?
  • Could Monaghan be taking over the role of George O'Malley from T.R. Knight, or playing a new character altogether that ABC nonetheless wants to keep secret?

We have no evidence to suggest this is actually happening other than what you just read above. It's just a rumor, and we are just throwing that out there. Thoughts?

One bad rumor put to rest. Thank God! I want TR to stay on Grey so bad. I don't think I can take not knowing anymore. He needs to stay.


You're welcome!! :) I guess so far, so good. Writers returned to work today. Maybe we'll get some news soon. Or so I hope.


Thank you so much for posting this for us, Anuflas. I can tell you this news made me sick this morning. I really hope TR's name is on the list for season 6. I love George so much, and I love his relationship with Izzie. Can you imagine Katie playing with another George? Brrrr!


Thanks anuflas! :)


Anuflas, I love you right now. I was so freaking out over this news. I don't want another George than TR. Now hopefully, we can learn TR is back and George will get his miracle. I also hope Izzie lives because I think George and Izzie's scenes are so touching.


It's confirmed. Dominic is joining Flash Forward. Guess we can all relax now. From Spoiler Chat with Kristin over at E!Online. Silvia in Kansas City, Kan.: What's with the new ABC promo that has Dominic Monaghan saying he "used to be dead"? Is that a huge clue that there will be a reset and Charlie Pace will be back on Lost? That was the big rumor on Friday; however, sources now tell our friends at IGN that Dominic Monaghan has a major role in ABC's new series Flash Forward. No word yet on his character, but we do know that he won't be introduced until episode two or so.


Hell no!.. no way! George is irreplaceable


Hell no!.. no way! George is irreplaceable




Anuflas, I'd rather Izzie die too. TR would just tear our hearts out with a recovery story. He would just knock it out of the park. I want to see that so bad. I agree with the poster above that George is probably the character with the most left to explore. I always thought they should explore more his doubts about his ability as a doctor, his insecurities. I really want his friendship with Izzie restored too, although I'd rather a romantic reunion. If he stays, we will have a recovery story and maybe a romance with the new girl. As for Jessica Capshaw, she is so sugary sweet she makes my teeth hurt just like Lexie. George is sweet but not in a sugary makes you hurl kind of way. We need that kind of sweetness. I vote they get rid of Lexie and Arizona, two characters most fans don't care about, and they put Callie with Mark and give George a big story. For me, George being on Grey, and being played by TR, are two conditions for me continuing to watch the show. I don't want this new guy anywhere near the show. I think the writers and Shonda should stop acting like idiots and consider that more than 80% of the fans want George to stay and that they will lose a huge number of viewers if they don't do whatever they can to make TR stay as George. He's not asking for more money. He's asking for a story, and they have every element in place with that finale to write him a great beautiful story. If they can't make it work, maybe they should get fired.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
