Jorge Garcia swims to J.J. Abrams' 'Alcatraz'

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.

    Dude!!! So happy Jorge Garcia will be back on TV.

  • Simon

    Dude! This is awesome news…

  • MCS

    Cant wait. Hopefully it delivers the goods as well as Lost did.

  • Hurley

    I wonder how long it will be til someone makes a pathetic comment along the lines of “I wasted 6 years of my life on a show by Abrams, I won’t do it again.”

    • Stephanie

      Abrams wasn’t responsible for what Cuse & Lindelof did to Lost.

      • J

        And by “what Cuse & Lindelof did to Lost,” you mean “making it awesome and satisfying.”

    • S

      You’re right, didn’t take very long.

    • bruno

      abrams didn’…t ruin LOST, that was all cuse and lindeloff. i’m a little unsure of hurley again so soon…hmmm

  • G

    I wasted 6 years of my life on a show by Abrams, I won’t do it again.

    • G

      Lol, JK. Lost is actually one of my favorite shows, with The Wire possibly beating it by a nose.

      • James

        This is basically my exact opinion too. The wire was just so perfectly constructed. Although Lost meant more to me emotionally

    This is awesome news! I hope this show compensates for the horrible “Undercovers.” I still love Abrams but that was a low blow.

  • Lisa

    I’ll watch him if he’s as cuddly as he was on Lost.

    There was always something that made me want to hug him even if he was a big sweaty man.

  • V

    Back to JJ ABRAMS strengths.

  • Kim

    I like a good head scratcher. I’ll at least check it out. I sure do miss “Lost”. I currently only watch a couple of sitcoms. TV pretty much sucks.

    • Di

      Start at the beginning and catch up on Fringe. It’s worth it.

      • steve

        so true. I didnt start on fringe until about half way through the second season when i bought the first season and watched the second online. I am soo soo glad i did and part way though the third the series is getting better

      • Pintu

        Yeah, Abrams hit all the marks, perfect cast, refiend story, action. All I want is more action. Lucas should take a note from Abrams and retell the story. Not from the past but from a future threat from the darkside. Far future. all the cast is still alive. I’m not sayin use all of them but who knows what type of story can come from it. A new trilogy. Luke would take Yoda’s place and add a new cast around him including R2-D2 and C3P0. It could work with the right story line.

  • rob

    this makes me happy. I love Jorge Garcia- whats not to love about the guy?

  • RecceR

    Lost let me down… they never gave a proper holiday episode. haha jk (kind of)

    Can’t wait for this show, hope they do a good job with the rest of the cast.

  • amelia in portland

    Can’t wait to see it.
