EXCLUSIVE! NO!!! Jorge Garcia Tells Us There's No Way Hurley Is Going To Return For JJ Abrams' 'Lost' Spin-Off!

Word on the street is that Locke and Ben Linus are going to get their own show, but Jorge says he won’t be a part of it!

How’s this for a huge HollyBummer? Jorge Garcia says there are no plans for character, Hurley, to appear in JJ Abrams’ new Lost spin-off!

“I doubt [I'll be playing Hurley ever again],” the 37-year-old actor told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at Axe Music’s “One Night Only” Weezer concert in West Hollywood Sept. 21 adding more hopefully, “But never say never!” When we expressed our sadness at such an upsetting development he said, “I’m sorry! I don’t know. If something happened and they wanted to resurrect me as Hurley, I mean, I would consider it.”

Well, that’s better! Jorge — who’s Lost character is actually the inspiration behind Weezer’s new album –  is very clear on one thing, though — he does love Lost’s executive producer, JJ Abrams, whom is creating the spin-off Leaving Our Shifting Timelines for 2012. “I hope [I get to work with him again,” he told us. “He is a brilliant mind and he can work a lot of things at one time, so I am ready for whenever he needs me.”

While he’s planning his next big move, Jorge is going to kill time by appearing on an episode of Matthew Perry‘s new sitcom, Mr. Sunshine. He may even appear on Lost alum Daniel Dae Kim‘s new program, Hawaii 5-0. “I’m kind of trying to work through [what to do with my career] now,” he said. “I mean, a lot of times, actors that are coming up and are in the hustle, you kind of dream of something that’s not even remotely what Lost was, so now it’s like, I need to figure out what my ‘now what’ moment is. Like, OK, I’ve done this, now what do I want? I’m still trying to figure that out.”

yeah, what Jeremy said…the site you link to, that is supposedly an article about a LOST spin-off, was posted 3/31…it was definitely an April Fools joke that they mistakenly posted a day early. Jeremy got it right, it’s a “buddy comedy” starring Terry O’Quinn and Michael Emerson.
