The Hollywood Reporter reports that Joseph Fiennes is eyeing the lead in ABC's drama pilot Flash Forward.

Flash Forward looks at what happens when the world becomes incapacitated for 2 minutes and 17 seconds. Fiennes might play an FBI agent with personal problems who is greatly effected by this event. John Cho is also in talks to star in this show.

Cho could also be playing Dominic Witten. Witten is also an FBI agent who is close with Fiennes' character. He remembers nothing about his blackout.

There is talk that this show could be "a potential companion to Lost."

Flash Forward comes to us from David S. Goyer and Brannon Braga.
