Jorge Garcia has signed to be a regular on “Hawaii Five-O”.
The actor, who reprises – a role he played in two episodes of the CBS action-adventure series – his role as conspiracy theorist Jerry Ortega, will be a full-timer from Season 5.
“Hawaii Five-O” reunites Garcia with his former “Lost” co-star Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Detective Lt. Chin Ho Kelly on the show.
“Jorge very quickly made Jerry an unlikely and valuable part of the Five-O Ohana,” exec producer Peter Lenkov tells THR. “We have many opportunities planned to put Jerry’s unusual and infectious desire to put the bad guys to good use.”
Like “Lost”, “Hawaii Five-O” films in – I guess it goes without saying – Hawaii.
Other “Lost” faves to have appeared on the show include Terry O’Quinn and Henry Ian Cusick.
