Monte(gna) Carlo

17 Jun

Yeah it’s stupid. But when the title came to me I had to use it even though the spelling is wrong.

One of the highlights of my trip to Monte Carlo was meeting Joe Mantegna. We were both there for Disney International publicity. Really nice guy.

Here I am with Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz from GLEE after the awards ceremony.

    I love criminal minds.
    I really liked Mandy Patinkin, but Joe Mantegna is good too.
    Un abrazo Jorge!!!

    Seriously, I nearly fell off my chair. You see, Glee and LOST were what got me through the week! To see Jorge with Jenna and Kevin made my day! Thank you again for sharing a little sliver of your life with us!

    Jenna! I dressed her on B’way on SPRING AWAKENING. One of my favorite people — I’m so thrilled for her success on GLEE.

    I heard, that CBS wants to fire AJ Cook and reduce the episodes of Paget Brewster…I like them so much. I hope they won’t fire the whole team, including Joe Mantegna. Criminal Minds is an awsome tv show.

    Now I’m jealous – I ♥ GLEE (not like I did LOST, but, ya know)

    As I say about my teen boys…”You clean up very nicely!” 🙂

  12. yogahz June 17, 2010 at 8:42 am #

    Gorgeous! (Jenna) (Well, you too.)

  13. Karen June 17, 2010 at 9:02 am #

    I agree with Sandy. You do clean up very nicely.

  14. Bea June 17, 2010 at 9:09 am #

    Love the pic of you with Kevin & Jenna. You look gawjus!!!

  15. pamelalovescharlie June 17, 2010 at 9:24 am #

    Yikes…nobody smack me….but I had no idea who the other people in the pix were. At our house, there is always a tv on, but I only watch Lost, V and repeats of old comedy shows. Now Jorge….I’d know you and the other Losties anywhere 🙂

  16. ErikaJean June 17, 2010 at 10:13 am #

    Love Glee! So jealous!

  17. Sylvia June 17, 2010 at 10:21 am #

    I like your shiny tie! 🙂

  18. Teléfila June 17, 2010 at 10:31 am #

    Wow, Joe is a great actor.

  19. yellowdog granny June 17, 2010 at 11:04 am #

    oh wow..what a thrill that must have been..Joe is one of my favorite actors…but are you.

  20. Sariel June 17, 2010 at 11:22 am #

    WOW, Mr. Mantegna!!! I remembered “House of Games”.
    Best vibes, Jorge and Beth.

  21. Malea June 17, 2010 at 1:05 pm #

    Wow, this new format feels so formal. Monte Carlo sounds so great especially this time of year!!! Are you a Gleek like me and the rest of the world?

  22. jackson June 17, 2010 at 2:13 pm #

    Joe Mantegna is an icon! Do you get nervous when you meet people like that? You look pretty cool about the whole thing.

  23. Michael June 17, 2010 at 2:33 pm #

    It just occurred to me that LOST and GLEE are both all caps titles… i wonder if that’s the secret to making a great show! (btw, isn’t Jenna a LOSTie?)

  24. Kim June 17, 2010 at 9:12 pm #

    Jorge, I miss “Lost”. How about you pitch an idea to ABC for a spin-off series? We’ve still got Hurley and Ben on the island, not to mention the Ajira Six. Seriously, I hate TV (except the Travel Channel) without “Lost”.

    • Benjamin (Benmanben) June 19, 2010 at 2:12 pm #

      Haha. I miss LOST too, and I also watch the Travel Channel a lot. lol.

  25. Nick June 18, 2010 at 12:40 am #

    …I already missed LOST too,Jorge…!In fact I borrowed the DVD entire series from a friend and started re-watching right from season 1.It’s a hole new experience I must say!!!Hurley ROCKS right from episode 1.01,Dude you’re great!I hardly can wait till August 24th to buy the complete collection (and to see of course your “Epilogue” on the Island!)
    …And speaking for islands,we have plenty of them here in Greece,some of them actually “Lost” amidst Aegean Sea!If one of your travels includes this part of the world,buzz me!I would be happy to get Lost with you in any of them!!!

  26. Karen June 18, 2010 at 4:30 am #

    Are you a “Gleek”? I am.

  27. Jessica June 18, 2010 at 6:49 am #

    Hey Jorge –

    Sorry this comment is unrelated to your post, but I was wondering if you’ve seen this:

  28. Shannon June 18, 2010 at 7:11 am #

    Gosh that party looks fun!! All those cool people in one place!

  29. Irish Girl June 18, 2010 at 11:57 am #

    I like Criminal Minds, and Mantegna’s a fine addition to the show. Gotta say, his character is much more palatable than Patinkin’s was. Jason Gideon seemed a little twitchy to me. But then, anytime I see Patinkin, I always hear: “My name is Inigo Montoya…”

    Sliante, and have a great weekend!


    • Sariel June 18, 2010 at 12:12 pm #

      I heared the same. Iñigo Montoya rules.

      • Irish Girl June 18, 2010 at 5:36 pm #

        So true. Montoya rocks the Princess Bride.

  30. Heather June 18, 2010 at 3:30 pm #

    Awesome! So nice to see you having a good time!

  31. nirese June 18, 2010 at 6:54 pm #

    You may already know, but there is a small (but totally inspired) movement on FB called “Help me get Jorge Garcia on Glee.” 🙂

  32. moon June 18, 2010 at 8:45 pm #

    GLEE peeps in a photo with you? Happiness in a square.

  33. Frannie June 19, 2010 at 12:32 am #

    I am soooooooooooooooo glad you are back writing a blog! I spent many hours reading about your adventures during LOST. You had me laughing and crying!
    You provide joy and laughter to so many, keep it up Jorge
    you are too funny:)

  34. elina June 19, 2010 at 10:22 am #

    Tengo que agradecerte por haberme divertido tanto con tu personaje en LOST, empeze a ver la serie este año, un poco tarde, pero me enganche tanto que ya la termine de ver 😀 Ha sido un placer disfrutar de tu personaje en esta serie. Hurley es mi favorito, te deseo todo lo mejor para los tiempos venideros y que inicies lindos proyectos en esta nueva etapa.
    Un gran saludo desde argentina, espero que leas esto. un gran abraso, Exitos!

    Joe is getting a bit rough looking. He must be doing an action/adventure or western flick. By the way, if a fan wants to send you a request where does he mail it to?

  36. Adrian June 19, 2010 at 8:34 pm #

    I didn’t know where else to post this. I am so sorry for the loss of you beloved pet-friend, Nunu. Don’t know what I would do without my four-legged guy. If you need a prayer or a warm thought. Always here…

  37. Michele June 20, 2010 at 11:01 am #

    Lost and Criminal Minds are my two favorite shows!!!! Would make a great spin off. They could investigate the Island.
    Hope all is well

  38. Andrea Kollo June 25, 2010 at 1:21 pm #

    You look very dapper all duded up!! Must have been a great expierence for you and Beth.

    Can’t wait for the next installment.
