Jorge Garcia prefers wearing "more clothes" in 'Alcatraz' than he was able to in Lost.
The 38-year-old actor is currently portraying comic book store owner and writer Dr. Diego Soto in the Fox prison drama, and he is enjoying playing a character who is "smarter" than his Lost alter-ego Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes.
"It was nice to do something different after 'Lost' for so long. It's kind of nice having a character who wears more clothes and is smarter. It's been a lot of fun finding new things to do with my character, that it great for an actor," he said.
Jorge is pleased to be able to explore a different alter-ego after starring in Lost for six years, but he "really misses" filming the ABC drama series in Hawaii and hopes to move back there at some point:
McGarrett is MIA!
Hawaii 5-0 star Alex O'Loughlin has taken time off from the CBS show in order to seek "supervised treatment for prescription pain medication due to a recent shoulder injury," his rep said.
Considering all the stunts Alex seems to do for the show, it's not surprising that he suffered such an injury. Here's to hoping he recovers soon!
So what does O'Loughlin's current treatment mean for the rest of the cast and crew?
While there isn't any word on how many episodes Alex will miss (if at all) in his absence, CBS says that the show is actually ahead of schedule and that it will complete a full second season, as ordered from the network.

Jonny Lee Miller has been cast in a new Sherlock Holmes project.
The actor is to play the fictional British detective - created by author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the 19th century - in CBS pilot Elementary, and if it proves to be successful a full series will be commissioned.
The show - named after the character's famous catchphrase - will see Holmes leave his traditional 221b Baker Street home in London to solve mysteries in New York. By coincidence, his friend Benedict Cumberbatch - whom he starred with in Danny Boyle's theatre production of Frankenstein - plays the detective in BAFTA Award-winning BBC series Sherlock, which is set in modern times.
Robert Doherty - who has worked on Medium and Star Trek: Voyager - is lined up to write show, which will air in late 2012 if it gets the green light.
In recent years, Sherlock Holmes has seen a huge resurgence in popularity. As well as the TV series starring Cumberbatch, Guy Ritchie has also brought the character back to life on the big screen with Robert Downey Jr. portraying Holmes and Jude Law playing his trusty sidekick Dr. John Watson in their traditional historical setting.
AMC hit drama Mad Men was the big winner at the inaugural Critics' Choice Television Awards yesterday.
The TV series picked up Best Drama, while its stars John Hamm and Christina Hendricks won the Best Actor in a Drama and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama prizes respectively. Christina shared her accolade, however, with Margo Martindale of Justified.
With three new shows premiering this fall on the CW -- including Sarah Michelle Gellar's return to the small screen in Ringer -- the network is already getting fans on the edge of their couches by releasing the lineup. Check out when favorites Gossip Girl and Supernatural will return to your TV -- after the jump!

Hey, TV Envy fans. Normally, I post over at our sister site, Comix 411, but today I have some TV news to pass along.
If you're anywhere near Great Britain and going to be around what the folks there call a telly on Monday evening, you might want to check out a TV series called Leonardo that's airing on CBBC at 5:15pm (17:15).
The first episode is called "Anything Goes," UK's Telegraph has already given the show a thumbs up, saying it "has its roots in traditional adventure drama. And thoroughly engaging it is too."
You don’t have to like latex to appreciate Adrianna Palicki’s amazing figure in the newly-revamped Wonder Woman costume. Palicki will take on the dual role of superhero/Diana Prince in NBC’s new reboot, and she’ll be doing it with a fierce gold whip.
Not bad. Palicki definitely has the Amazonian look down pat, though some purists are having strong reactions to the notable costume changes (Wonder Woman in pants?! Inconceivable!). But Lynda Carter, TV’s first Wonder Woman, is voicing no complaints.

Casting for ABC's upcoming Charlie's Angels reboot is reportedly close to being finished.
Last week, Annie Ilonzeh (middle picture) was the first woman chosen for the action series. Now, it's being widely reported that Minka Kelly (far left) and Rachael Taylor (far right) will soon be kicking butt alongside her.
Although Ilonzeh has appeared on Entourage as one of Turtle's assistants, she is best known to soap opera viewers as Maya Ward on General Hospital. Annie will shift from ABC daytime to primetime as Kate -- a smart and athletic ex-cop with martial arts skills.

"Funnily enough, no. You’re taped up and anatomically incorrect – there’s no accidental sex happening on set, but all the same, it’s really exposing. Especially for the women. I think females are hardwired to protect that side of yourself, so that has never gotten easier. But nudity becomes easier. You just don’t notice it after a while, but sex – no. And not one actor has come in and found it a breeze."
