Jorge Garcia Guest Stars

The former Lost star has appeared twice on the drama as Jerry Ortega, an ex-high school classmate of Daniel Dae Kim's Detective Lt. Chin Ho Kelly.

"Jorge very quickly made Jerry an unlikely and valuable part of the Five-O Ohana," executiv producer Peter Lenkov tells The Hollywood Reporter. "We have many opportunities planned to put Jerry's unusual and infectious desire to put the bad guys to good use."

Prior to jetting off to Hawaii, Garcia guest-starred Once Upon a Time, Fringe and Californication.

The series airs a new episode tonight and you can always watch Hawaii Five-0 online at TV Fanatic to keep current.

Hawaii Five-0 Quotes

McGarrett: What did you just do?
Jenna Kaye: You mean with my gum?
McGarret: Yeah, with your gum. This is a computer not your high school desk.

I sort of thought we had something nice going, but if I can't compete with sand storms and artifacts, I guess it was time to re-evaluate anyway, right?
