Gabrielle Union was back on the promo trail last week, attending the Disney-ABC Television Group Summer Press Tour. As previously reported here, Gabby has landed a role in the upcoming ABC drama Flash Forward. The actress will play Zoe, a criminal defense attorney who will have a romantic arc on the show. Her character is one of millions who black out and see glimpses of their lives six months into the future.
“We’re thrilled that Gabrielle is joining our cast,” executive producer David S. Goyer said in a statement. “When we met with her, we immediately knew she was our Zoey. She’s witty, soulful and beautiful. I’ve been wanting to work with her for a long time.”
Gabrielle most recently filled in for Sarah Shahi on NBC’s Life and had a multi-episode role on Ugly Betty as Wilhelmina’s younger sister, Renee.
