Garcia was part of his high school wrestling team and was given the nickname Baby-Faced Killer due to his skills. Subsequently, Jorge attended and graduated from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) with a degree in Communication Studies during 1995. After college, he decided to study acting and attended the Beverly Hills Playhouse.

With his studies completed, Garcia would appear in a few commercials while working at Borders Books and Music. Eventually, he started getting roles in both film and on television. After his appearance on “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, a character was made just for him for the series “Lost”. Prior to being cast for the series, he had appeared in various series such as “Columbo”, “Becker” and “Spin City”. He was the first actor to be cast in “Lost” which ran from 2004 to 2010. While he starred in the series, he also appeared in other shows such as “Celebrity Poker Showdown” and “Russian Roulette”. His popularity and net worth significantly increased while in “Lost”, and he did various things concurrent with it, such as a blog and a weekly podcast. He also won an SAG Award and two ALMA Awards for his work there. His character also became the feature of the Weezer album entitled “Hurley”.

After the end of “Lost”, Jorge became a part of “When We Were Pirates”, of which he was the associate producer. Other opportunities also opened to him such as the series “Alcatraz”, and “How I Met Your Mother” in which he guest-starred. During 2011, he appeared in “Mr. Sunshine”, but the show was eventually cancelled due to a drop in viewer numbers. He started appearing in the fourth season of “Hawaii Five-0” as a recurring guest, and then later became a regular cast member. One of his recent works is called “The Healer”, in which he will star alongside Jonathan Pryce and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. He was also in the Netflix movie “Ridiculous 6”.

For his personal life, it is known that Jorge and Bethany Leigh Shady had a relationship, as evident in the podcast “Geronimo Jack’s Beard”, however, he remains single. He has a very large record collection which he shows to friends. Aside from these, he also mentioned that he missed his sister’s wedding because of the shooting schedule of “Lost” in Hawaii.

#Quote
1I have been sent three or four scripts for television series, but there wasn't anything I really wanted to do. I want to tell a good story, whether it's a TV show, a movie, whatever. That's really my No. 1 criteria.
2There's certainly pressure to find your audience early. You need to paint the picture, but it's tough trying to find the balance between a show that people can tune in on any given week while still grabbing the people who are there every week.
3J.J. Abrams is definitely a guy that when he calls, you want to answer. He's incredibly focused. When he was shooting the pilot on 'Lost,' we'd do a take and he'd go back to his tent and be working on the first episodes of 'Lost' as well as the cliffhanger for the eighth season of 'Alias.' He's an incredible multitasker.
4People don't really want to know what happens. They ask you for just a second, but then they don't want to know.
5I just enjoy the ride while I have it.
6You can get fired from any job at any time.
7I'm perfectly happy doing nothing. I'll hang around the house and take the dog to the park.
8That's always a cool thing to be the voice of what the eyes are seeing. It gives you the role of the Greek chorus and that's always fun to do.
9I have gotten used to working in the dark and I dig it.
10I definitely try to mix humor into anything I do, even if it is into a drama.
11Life is very nice in Hawaii. I rent a place that has its own cottage so when my friends and family come to visit, they have somewhere nice to stay.
12I used to work at this store called Music Plus in San Clemente, California, when I was growing up, and then they became Blockbuster Music, and, like, you had to get a haircut to work there, and at the time I had some pretty long hair. So after that policy was imposed, I knew that was going to be my last summer working there.
13Mixing humor and harsh reality is a very human behavior, it's the way people stay sane in their daily lives.
14Bad people are intriguing!

9Is of Cuban and Chilean descent.
