Hurley's headed for another island!

ABC / Today
Jorge Garcia's headed to another island show, this time "Alcatraz."

Jorge Garcia, who played Hurley on "Lost," is headed for another island. But this time, don't expect any smoke monsters -- though there could be some sort of time traveling mystery involved.

According to Deadline.com, Garcia has signed on to star in Fox's "Alcatraz," which will be executive produced by "Lost" co-creator J.J. Abrams. The drama is about a group of guards and prisoners at the infamous island prison who disappear, then reappear in the present 30 years later.

The actor will play Dr. Diego Soto, a geeky expert on the subject of Alcatraz. Deadline reports that Garcia was the first to sign on to the project.
