Dominic Monaghan Officially Joins FlashForward, Reveals Character Detais

by at . Comments

Dominic Monaghan was confirmed as a series regular on FlashForward earlier this month.

But, at Comic-Con last week, more details were revealed about the role the former Lost star would play on the new series.

Monaghan will portray Simon, "a game-changer character who f--ks up a lot of things," as described by producer/writer David Goyer.

As for why he signed on for FlashForward, the actor said:

"I want to play someone who's the opposite of [Lost's] Charlie. Simon is a man - this guy's not scared, he's capable, he's unflappable, he's smart, he's scary, he's everything that Charlie wasn't... it's important to me to continue to show an audience that I can play more."

Monaghan added that Simon is a "little hard to predict. He's a snappy dresser, capable and cocky."

FlashForward, one of the fall's most promising new shows, debuts on September 24.
