    Lo cierto es que las ultimas noticias que había leído sobre el tema no eran muy esperanzadoras, parecía que la Fox no lo tenía nada claro, pero veo que al final podremos disfrutar de Alcatraz.

    Me alegro por ti y por nosotros que podremos disfrutar de la serie, esperemos que durante muchas temporadas.

    Se que soy pesado, pero insisto en que espero nos tengas informado de tus vivencias en Vancouver y de lo que puedas contarnos sobre el rodaje.

    ¿ Qué tal desde ” dispatches from the other island ” ?

    So you’re starring in a show about an island that’s almost impossible to escape from? Sounds like this other show I used to watch.

    Congrats on everything, Jorge. I can’t wait to check out the new show.

  25. Uncle Walts Niece May 11, 2011 at 6:49 am #

    I am so glad it got picked up! I can’t wait to see the show. Maybe I should get a new notebook for all my theories…. 🙂

  31. Donna Siano May 11, 2011 at 8:47 am #

    Well your also my favorite Actor. I look forward to seeing the show. Thanks so much for the update and all the fun pictures.

  32. Jeff May 11, 2011 at 9:14 am #

    Will there be a bird-man in the show and will his birds shriek “HURLEEEEEEE”?

  33. Nitou May 11, 2011 at 9:27 am #

    Wow ! So happy 🙂 Congratulations and can’t wait to see it !

  34. Demetrios May 11, 2011 at 10:07 am #

    Bittersweet for me. I really loved the Chicago Code, one of the best Cop Dramas on TV. I do like the idea of having another show on Fox other than Fringe that will have a Sci Fi twist to it!

  35. Catherine May 11, 2011 at 10:13 am #

    Congrats Jorge! Guess this means you and Beth will be moving to Hollywood North. Vancouver is a great city, places feel like a small town… Would you have ever guessed you’d be such a vagabond as an actor?

  36. DJ May 11, 2011 at 10:15 am #

    Hey Jorge,

    I hope your day finds you well. I am a reader of a website called reddit. Have you ever heard of it?

    Anyway, it’s read by hundreds of thousands of people everyday. One of aspect of the website is for people to something called an IAMA- essentially allowing us commoners to get to know you famous folks. There is an area of this website dedicated to Lost, and folks were hoping to get an IAMA from someone who was on the show, and I said I would try to get you, if you are interested. You can set ground rules (such as regarding no questions regarding plotlines and the chemical make-up of Jacob’s ashes). If you would like to show up, please do let me know!

    By the way, here is a link to some past IAMA’s:

  37. Melody May 11, 2011 at 10:33 am #

    Wonderful news! Congratulations! It will be nice to see you on tv every week again.

    I’m very very happy about your new show..can’t wait..but right now I’m so pissed at Fox I’m not sure I will watch..I fell in love with Chicago Code and they never gave it a chance..and it was great what if I get attached to your show and they jerk it off after a year..? screw em.

  40. Title Loans May 11, 2011 at 12:25 pm #

    Congratulations! Bones is definitely one of my favorite shows, so I will be excited to see it. Do you know when an approximate air date will be? (I hope it doesn’t run in with NCIS :()

  41. Erika May 11, 2011 at 1:15 pm #

    Congrats Jorge!!!! 🙂 I am so ridiculously excited to see this!

  42. lizziebix May 11, 2011 at 2:28 pm #

  43. kake79 May 11, 2011 at 2:56 pm #

    Great news! Alcatraz is definitely my most anticipated new series for the fall. And good luck with the move. Hawaii to Vancouver is a pretty big change. I hope you enjoy getting to live in these different places.

  44. kathy May 11, 2011 at 5:40 pm #

    Congrats Jorge! So happy for you and we’ll be watching! It’ll be great to have you back on the tube every week!

  47. Ian May 11, 2011 at 6:04 pm #

  50. Jeff May 11, 2011 at 7:27 pm #
