I think it's a film rather than a show. I thought it was Tom Hanks, or somebody similar in appearance.
What is the film where a young guy can tell what's about to happen a few seconds into the future? The scene I remember is something like the following:
The guy and a friend in a small room, like a dorm room. Maybe they're not talking, just reading. Or maybe they're talking about something and he interrupts.
"Are you gonna get that?" "Get what?" Then a red(?) phone between them(?) rings.
