    no job?? what?? no!!!!

  2. Gillian May 11, 2012 at 11:23 am #

    What a disappointment. I don’t know what Fox was thinking, that was the best show on TV while it ran.

  3. Nathan May 11, 2012 at 11:24 am #

    That sucks!

  4. Katie May 11, 2012 at 11:26 am #

    Well this is how i’m finding out! 😦

  5. elsiemanning May 11, 2012 at 11:26 am #

    I’m so bummed about Alcatraz, Jorge. It was really a terrific show. Had such a neat atmosphere to it. And that cast! πŸ™‚

    Something else good (and longer lasting) will come your way soon. You’re an excellent actor and you have hoardes of fans. We want to see you on our tv!

    Take care. We love you.

    • Dana May 11, 2012 at 4:42 pm #

      I totally agree. Alcatraz was too good to cancel! Maybe I’m biased just because Jorge is so amazing?

  6. Elizabeth A Mizdail May 11, 2012 at 11:30 am #

    I will miss Doc and your “patchy” 😦

  7. flight815down May 11, 2012 at 11:31 am #

    I am bummed about this. I HATE it. They didn’t give it enough of a chance. The show is awesome and I would have liked to go the distance with it. You hang in there. With your talent, you’ll be working in no time.

    • Sarah C May 11, 2012 at 11:40 am #

      So gutted when I heard, as the others have said it just didn’t get much of a chance, you were all brilliant and I’m sure you’ll be in something brilliant before you know it. Sending Hugs from Scotland xx

  8. Heidi May 11, 2012 at 11:37 am #

    Well that SUCKS!

    Maybe JJ will put out an Alcatraz comic book series to finish off the story. (Not that you would have an acting job in a comic book … but it would be nice for the series to have some closure … )

    I know we’ll be seeing you on our TV screens again soon! Until then, we will all stay tuned to Further Dispatches. πŸ™‚

  9. crankypants May 11, 2012 at 11:37 am #

    Ohhh so sorry to hear that.
    I thought of you the other day when I saw this article about a Canadian boxer who collected enough quarters from those pesky shopping carts to buy some shoes.

  10. jaqic May 11, 2012 at 11:40 am #

    I am so sorry to hear about this. It just make me crazy to see all of the mindless reality shows that come back season after season, and then a great show like this comes around, only to be cancelled without giving it a fair chance. Hopefully one of the other networks will see the value in Alcatraz and pick it back up. I am sure that you will find something wonderful to do until then!

  11. caterpillarcat May 11, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    I’m so sorry to hear. Alcatraz is a brilliant show… 😦
    Just a few days ago, I turned on the news and found out that the airline I work for was bankrupt and letting go of all its employees. It is a pretty harsh way to find out, I can attest… Fingers crossed we’ll both find new employment soon… πŸ™‚

  12. Redd H May 11, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

    Yuck, that sucks Jorge! I really loved the show and wanted all the answers!

    Boo I say.

  13. Susan May 11, 2012 at 12:28 pm #

    I’m so sorry they couldn’t have told you before they told the world. Is this a FOX thing or would this kind of behavior be the norm on any network?

  14. pcruzer May 11, 2012 at 12:35 pm #

    I didn’t know that Alcatraz was being canceled. I am so sorry to hear this. How about suggesting a LOST Reunion show?

  15. pcruzer May 11, 2012 at 12:36 pm #

    Oh!!!! I am so sorry to hear this! I’m sure you’ll find something else real soon. How about suggesting a LOST Reunion show?

  16. elevatedtaste May 11, 2012 at 12:44 pm #

    What a bummer. Here’s hoping for a “Firefly”/”Serenity” ending to the story!

  17. uh oh momma! May 11, 2012 at 12:48 pm #

    you won’t be gone from our t.v.s for long. you have tremendous talent and fans who love you. something wonderful is sure to be close at hand.

  18. Sandra May 11, 2012 at 12:52 pm #

    I heard about it yesterday too, so sorry for you. I liked you on the show, but never could get totally into the story. You’ll be in something better soon, I’m sure.

  19. leendadll May 11, 2012 at 1:00 pm #


  20. flight815down May 11, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    By the way, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing you soon on TV. You just go with the flow.

  21. Heather Pouschine May 11, 2012 at 1:20 pm #

    SUCKS! All my favorite new shows this season got cancelled.

  22. kathy May 11, 2012 at 1:29 pm #

    It seems like any show that actually takes some kind of intelligent thought process never gets a chance to sway people. There are soooo many dumb sitcoms, that for the life of me I can never understand, stay on. Sad to see your show gone 😦

  23. kake79 May 11, 2012 at 1:40 pm #

    Really, that’s how you found out? Wow, that sucks! I really feel for you because this is the same thing as getting laid off. But, you know you have a large and loyal fanbase and we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for your next project. Until then, I hope you can enjoy some quality time with Beth and the babies.

    • flight815down May 11, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

      Can someone tell me how to NOT receive all follow up posts? I come here and check myself.

      • uh oh momma! May 11, 2012 at 2:13 pm #

        flight815, are you talking about other people’s comments? there’s a box to check when you make a comment to turn off comments being emailed to you.

      • flight815down May 11, 2012 at 2:22 pm #

        Thank you, Momma!

  24. bullion May 11, 2012 at 2:32 pm #

    Yes, it really sucks. I also was very disappointed to hear that the show got cancelled. I really do hope to see you on the small big screen again soon. You had such a neat chemistry with Sarah. Did I already mention that it sucks?

  25. Kristen May 11, 2012 at 2:46 pm #

    Honestly, you were the best thing about that show. I continued to watch it longer than I would have normally just because you were in it. I can’t wait to see what you do next!

  26. super carrie May 11, 2012 at 2:53 pm #

    whoah! i wonder if your bosses also found out through the internet. it’d be dickish if they had known for weeks (or at least days) and didn’t tell you.
    here’s hoping you find another role soon. (and another roll. and that you fill it with something tasty. perhaps jackfruit BBQ. i’ve heard it’s just like pulled pork)

  27. Lurkertype May 11, 2012 at 3:05 pm #

    Jorge, I once had some friends who found out they didn’t have a job via “Entertainment Tonight”. Don’t know if that’s better, worse, or the same.

    I’ll miss seeing you every week (until you get another job, of course) but I have to say I won’t miss Patchy at all! I never liked him/it.

    Enjoy your LA summer with Beth and the pups!

  28. bclostfan May 11, 2012 at 3:21 pm #

    Please remember the hot sunny weather, in Vancouver, when you first arrived and forget about the rainy days. Sorry to see you go.

  29. Jake Brownson May 11, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll get snapped up by one of the other great shows on TV like 30 Rock, Community or Parks and Recreation……..

    • Jeff May 11, 2012 at 3:49 pm #

      …or to host AFV when Tom Bergeron decides to call it quits.

  30. CastawayCat May 11, 2012 at 4:00 pm #

    I swear e! online said they couldn’t confirm it. That sucks that the actors don’t get advance notice. I hope to see you on screen again soon, and I hope it isn’t on a new FOX show. Best wishes.

  31. elsiemanning May 11, 2012 at 4:04 pm #

    I just heard that Nestor’s show “Ringer” has been cancelled as well. Maybe you two can find a new show to do together. That would be awesome! πŸ˜‰

  32. Tammy Williams May 11, 2012 at 4:46 pm #

    Maybe Sci Fi will pick it up. This show has so much potential. I love it!

  33. Isa Chandra (@IsaChandra) May 11, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    The entire PPK is bummed out over this. You should start a cooking show instead!

    • Sandra May 14, 2012 at 9:25 am #

      I agree! I’m eating vegan now, in part because Jorge made it more accessible with recipes and info. Actually tried nutritional yeast again (hated it the first time) after his pictures of it on bread. Now I love it πŸ™‚

  34. Teri Peter Milnes May 11, 2012 at 5:01 pm #

    George is getting angry!! And so am I!! I REALLY loved watching the show!! 😦

  35. Gia May 11, 2012 at 5:12 pm #


  36. Jackie Denney May 11, 2012 at 5:15 pm #

    I can’t believe they tossed Alcatraz and kept The Touch..nothing against KS, but really that is the dumbest show on tv..Jake, Jake, Jake…what do the numbers mean Jake?…and he knows the kid is autistic and runs off at the drop of a dime, so what does he do when the phone rings? He turns his back on the kid and what does he do? runs off of course..please..dumbest show ever…I’m going to miss Alcatraz. To bad that SyFy can’t pick it up.

  37. karlou25 May 11, 2012 at 5:30 pm #

    I really liked Alcatraz, and they certainly did not give it enough of a chance. That seems to be more and more of a problem – shows are cancelled so quickly, there’s no chance for them to develop a following. And what a wonderful cast.

  38. Karla Scholl May 11, 2012 at 5:54 pm #

    I heard thru Beth on FB…Bad news!!! I really thought Alcatraz had it made, so many more stories to tell. Sorry Jorge, good luck on your next venture. Enjoy your time off and take care of yourself.

  39. Tammie May 11, 2012 at 5:58 pm #

    I had to stop and complain to FOX before I posted a comment. I cannot believe that they chose TOUCH to keep over Alcatraz. (No offense Keifer Sutherland. You can only work with the material you are given.) Alcatraz is so much more entertaining and even with the time travel storyline, it feels less contrived when you are watching it than Touch does! I want Alcatraz back!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I know I am preaching to the choir here Jorge, but I needed to say my piece.)

  40. Kathy May 11, 2012 at 7:02 pm #

    I saw Beth’s FB post too… sorry Jorge! but that’s gotta mean there’s something even bigger and better coming down the line for you! πŸ™‚ xx

  41. wacvet May 11, 2012 at 7:45 pm #

    It totally sucks that no one called to tell you personally BEFORE the news broke. What a bunch of jerks. You’re talented and popular. You’ll find a new job soon.

  42. Tina May 11, 2012 at 9:30 pm #

    This totally sucks! I think most of the TV classic shows that people love would never stand a chance in today’s world. No more building an audience and developing characters. If it doesn’t have fierce ratings and can withstand being moved into different time slots, it’s done. We’re continually being force fed these dumb-ass reality shows and inane, overtly sexual sitcoms. I agree with the previous comment about wishing SciFy would pick this up. Grrrr!

    Good luck to you, Jorge. I hope we see you in something again very soon.

  43. Kelly Stevens Judson May 11, 2012 at 9:35 pm #

    Bummer. 😦

  44. John Alexander May 12, 2012 at 12:36 am #

    Just got home from a long trip to read this. I’m really bummed.

  45. Elizabeth A Mizdail May 12, 2012 at 3:56 am #

    FYI I have started a petition:

  46. Karen May 12, 2012 at 3:56 am #

    When one door closed another one opens!!!!

  47. Emily Giermann May 12, 2012 at 5:14 am #

    So mad!! I loved Alcatraz and so did my boyfriend. Boo to Fox for cancelling some excellent shows.

  48. Ian May 12, 2012 at 8:58 am #

    Don’t be too bitter and scorned. Leave that for Beth. Why not try your hand at some feature films? I think you’d be a great addition to any cast for dramatic or comedic roles. Maybe they can get you to be in the next Avengers movie. πŸ™‚

  49. Judy May 12, 2012 at 11:17 am #


    I always fallow your blog and watch any thing you are in. This is the first time I have left a comment. I hope this helps…You inspire me.


  50. Anna May 12, 2012 at 3:17 pm #


  51. casey May 12, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    That stinks, but maybe you’ll pick up an amazing role, or have a reoccurring role on person of interest (which in my crazy mind takes place in the lost universe).

  52. aparker1 May 12, 2012 at 8:02 pm #

    FOX does it again. They are notorious for killing a shows that needed at least a second season to gain a strong following. I am disappointed that I won’t get to see the story unfold. I hope to see you on the big or small screen soon!

  53. PJ May 12, 2012 at 9:19 pm #

    This is a bummer. I would loveto see you back in comedy though. You wre so awesome on HIMYM in 2010- can the Blitz make a return? Good luck

  54. twoaz1 May 12, 2012 at 9:22 pm #

    Sickened and sad about such quality entertainment stolen from us yet again. WTG FOX F’idiots. BUT to learn you’ve lost your job via the internet?! That’s shoddy at the very least. Rude and or poorly planned. However, I look forward to your next project and hope it’s not on FOX. Sticking with you always.

  55. Bear May 13, 2012 at 1:24 am #

    I’m so sorry to hear about your show, Jorge! I can hope that the show gets picked up on cable…but, whatever happens, I (and your many other fans!) will always support you. Hang in there!

  56. claudia333 May 13, 2012 at 5:00 am #

    It is heartbreaking. There was so much more to the show.
    Whatever you are on next I will follow.l

  57. jackkate May 13, 2012 at 10:04 am #

    Unlike… thumbs down… NO… Bbooooooooo
    But you however will land somewhere great and with promise so worry not sweet boy ❀

  58. Joe Rapino May 13, 2012 at 3:00 pm #

    Hey, what a drag. Sorry to hear your show was canceled. I thought it was a great show and we were looking forward to the next season. Don’t let it get you down. I’m sure we will be seeing you soon in something even better really soon. Peace.

  59. Becky May 14, 2012 at 6:20 am #

    I’m so sad. I love the show and you in it.

  60. Du May 14, 2012 at 6:36 am #

    I’ll miss Alcatraz and Patchy.

  61. musemanticore May 14, 2012 at 7:39 am #

    Ugh! I hate when that happens!

    Fingers crossed for you getting more work real soon.

  62. theurban6 May 14, 2012 at 10:44 am #

    I found out about it here, and I think it is crap. That was an awesome show. Now I feel bad though because I always watched it a couple of nights after it aired on OnDemand (have classes on the night it comes on), they also cancelled The Finder which I liked a lot as well. Don’t know what Fox was thinking.

  63. Sam May 14, 2012 at 11:07 am #

    Darn it. I still have the last 2 episodes taped (yes, taped) to watch. We will miss you in Vancouver. Another reason to hate FOX. Ughhhhh

  64. Sarah Boehm Davies May 14, 2012 at 12:02 pm #

    Jorge, I’m so sorry that happened. It really seems like FOX is incapable of recognizing a great show when they have one. And I can’t believe they didn’t tell you personally. They are the absolute worst.

  65. laura w May 14, 2012 at 5:47 pm #

    I’m pissed that they axed The Finder as well. Two really great shows.

  66. Potato Queen May 15, 2012 at 4:50 am #

    Grrrr, I’m disgusted that Fox treated you (and I presume the other actors) so shabbily and let you learn of the cancellation this way. But I agree with everyone else: you are too talented and too beloved to be off our screens for long. Personally, I’d make a play for Hawaii 5-0 as a new seemingly innocent beach bum CI who nonetheless knows a lot about the dark doings of the island and who has a secret tragedy in his past.

  67. Tom May 15, 2012 at 5:40 pm #

    This sucks. It was a decent show with a good story. Jorge you were awesome in it. Loved your character and was excited to see where it was going with the medical chick. Really thought it would take off after a few episodes. Pretty bummed out. Networks are way too quick to dump shows these days.

  68. Cat McIntosh (@MoonCat74) May 15, 2012 at 10:09 pm #

    Jorge I truly only watched Alcatraz (initially) because you were on it. My dog (a dachshund/pekingese mix) is named Hugo after Hurley. But I was quickly drawn in, and I was quite shocked that it was canceled. I’m so sorry. I’ll miss it. It was definitely amongst my new favorite shows.

  69. Teresa Avalon May 16, 2012 at 5:08 am #

    I’m surprised. I’ll admit a preference to Fringe but you guys seemed to be getting a rhythm. Call in a favor and get Daniel Dae Kim to get you on Hawaii Five 0 – You’re meant to be in Hawaii, anyway, and you know it.

  70. Katherine May 31, 2012 at 1:10 am #

    It’s a shame, but it frees you up for other interesting projects. Love you Jorge!

  71. Diane May 31, 2012 at 3:17 pm #

    When I first read that it was on the ‘endangered’ list of possible cancellations, I sent an email demanding that they keep it on because it is one of the few shows I look forward to watching. I am so bummed now that nothing will be explained! So how did they all come back from the past?? Did I miss something in the finale? I’ll have to buy the series on DVD.
