The opening of the Emmy’s reminded us of missing one of our favorite actors, Jorge Garcia, who starred as Hugo (Hurley) Reyes in the television series “Lost.” Garcia sang and danced in the opening act of the 2010 Emmy’s in a Glee-inspired number. With Lost having its final season this past year, fans of Garcia are happy to see him pop up in unexpected places. Here are some of the other ways Garcia has been visible in the media since Lost ended its long run as a series.
Many fans of Garcia have kept up with his regular blogs on his site “Dispatches From the Island.” In June, the actor closed this site and opened another blog called, “Further Dispatches.” In the prior blog, Garcia focused mainly on his experiences acting in Lost and information about his Hurley character. This new blog has chronicled his experiences since the Lost series ended. For example, he has blogged about his move from Hawaii, his loss of his pet NuNu in a tragic accident, and personal observations.
Avid fans of Lost and Garcia might already have listened to the podcast Geronimo Jack’s Beard. This podcast is put on by Garcia and Sidekick22 and gave insight on production of each episode. After the end of the show, the podcast featured a roundup of the show. There is no word if Garcia will continue podcasting about other shows he might end up being in, or if this was a Lost one-off.
On the new album cover of the new Weezer CD, fans of Garcia will get a treat. Not only is the album titled “Hurley” but an image of Garcia’s smiling face is on the cover.
Lost DVD or BluRay
On the series finale and season finale disc, fans can see Garcia one more time in a 12 minute epilogue. Garcia is only in this feature for a couple of minutes, but it is a treat to see him reprise the Hurley role one more time.
Currently, the only project that stars Garcia on the horizon is the film, “When We Were Pirates.” This film is set to be released 2012. You can watch a youtube video of a behind the scenes look that features Garcia.
Apparently, Garcia will soon be posting a snail mail address where you can contact him on his blog. You can also check out his girlfriend’s blog or her brother’s blog, which also mentions Garcia at times.
