courtneybvance.jpgWe’re a few weeks into the fall season and so far, so good for ABC’s new drama “Flash Forward.”

Have you been watching?

Though the show boasts a stellar ensemble cast, which includes Joseph Fiennes (“Shakespeare In Love”), John Cho (“Harold & Kumar,” “Star Trek”) and Sonya Walger (“Lost”), I did not have a hard time deciding who from group I wanted to go drinking with.

Courtney B. Vance — whom you may recognize from films like “The Hunt for Red October” and “The Preacher’s Wife” or TV shows like “Law & Order: CI” and “ER” in which he played Angela Bassett‘s husband (they’re actually married in real life) — went to my high school… and though he is, you know, a few years my senior, he was a legendary scholar-athlete whom admiring teachers never stopped talking about.

And he’s also just a really nice guy. So, yeah, we met up at Ruth’s Chris restaurant in Pasadena just recently to talk about “Flash Forward,” all the diva actors on the show as well as what the hell is wrong with John Cho.

Take a listen…

“Flash Forward” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC
