Jorge Garcia, star of ABC’s hit drama Lost and recent vegetarian convert, will be starring as the lead role in another J.J. Abrams (Lost, Armageddon, Star Trek) produced series.
It appears that the man who played ‘Hurley’, the unlucky/lucky “Mr. Cluck’s Chicken Shack” employee/owner on Lost, will transition to portraying “hippy geek” FBI agent Dr. Diego Soto on Fox’s new drama Alcatraz.
The series has an interesting theme, just as many of Abrams's plot-lines tend to be.
According to Deadline:
The project, described to be "about secrets and the most infamous prison of all time," centers on a group of missing Alcatraz prisoners and guards who reappear in the present day. It chronicles the efforts of a team of FBI agents to track them down and unravel the mystery behind their disappearance thirty years prior.
Filming of the pilot is set to begin in January.
