Spotlight on: Flash Forward
Whereas Lost is a seasons-long mystery, the producers of Flash Forward say they intend to solve this puzzle in real time. "We're airing the episode that takes place on April 29 on April 29," Cho says. Conveniently enough, that date falls right in the middle of network sweeps. What will happen when the big question is answered? Cho's got nothing for us. "I don't know what the subsequent episodes will be about. I'm not being coy with you; I really don't know," he says. "What I do know is that the producers have a very specific map for the first three seasons at least, so they've thought about it."
Working alongside Cho are S hakespeare in Love leading man Joseph Fiennes, Law and Order: Criminal Intent 's Courtney B. Vance and recurring Lost guest star Sonya Walger. Even the most critically acclaimed new shows aren't a sure thing, so if John Cho himself were to flash forward six months, what does he think he'd see? "The show's a hit and I'm still gainfully employed."
