While he might have escaped The Island in Lost, Jorge Garcia is set to return to a different island in J.J. Abrams’ new series Alcatraz. Garcia’s rep confirms with EW that the Lost star will topline the Fox pilot centered on the historic San Francisco slammer. Garcia is on board to play an Alcatraz expert in the pilot, which will follow a group of prisoners and guards who appear in the present day. And, once again, prepare for another head-scratcher — Abrams’ series, written by Lost executive producer Elizabeth Sarnoff, will (quite predictably) be a mystery.
