After blacking out face-first into my tofu pot pie, I’ve returned from lunch with a glimpse of future casting news for FlashForward. It’s all a bit hazy — I can neither confirm nor deny that alcohol was involved — but it looks like actress Paula Newsome of Women’s Murder Club fame will be joining the forward-leaning thriller for a few episodes in the not-so-distant future.

Newsome will play a doctor (maybe a certain unwillingly pregnant agent’s OB/GYN?) for an arc that will likely begin airing in early 2010. Sadly, 137 seconds wasn’t long enough for me to bring back any juicy spoilers, but I’m still trying to put all the pieces together. So stay tuned… (Additional reporting by Keith Staskiewicz)
