Gabrielle Union Previews Role on FlashForward

by at . Comments

Gabrielle Union has nabbed a recurring role on ABC's FlashForward.

The beautiful actress will portray a criminal defense attorney engaged to John Cho's character, Demetri Noh. In an interview with Sci-Fi Wire, Union said the coupling of two different ethnicities is deliberate.

"The cultural differences with our families, not only blending families in the middle of a recession but blending families that come from different cultures and races and backgrounds, will definitely be explored," Union said

In the FlashForward series premiere, which airs on September 24, one flash forward saves a character from suicide; while others see themselves somehow pregnant and/or sleeping with a strange man.

As for Union's character? The actress won't reveal what her future supposedly holds, but:

"It's life-affirming, that's for sure," she said.
