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.
