Dude … Hurley’s on the New Weezer CD!


Jorge Garcia, best known for his role as Hurley on ABC’s “LOST,” will be featured on the cover of rock-outfit Weezer’s eight studio album entitled … “Hurley.”


Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo tells Spinner:

We struggled super hard trying to come up with an album title, trying to find some kind of phrase that summed up the whole aesthetic behind the album: ‘Heavy Mental,’ ‘Smaller Than Life’. I was coming up with all kinds of stuff, but ultimately, we just went with some random word that doesn’t really have anything to do with anything.

I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia — it just had this amazing vibe. We didn’t want to do a fourth self-titled record and we knew people would refer to it as ‘the Hurley record’ even if left it without that title, so we just called it ‘Hurley.’ No words are on the cover because all we wanted was his amazing face.

Cuomo goes on to point out that none of the songs on the “Hurley” disc contain references to “LOST” and admits to still being stuck on season two of the Emmy-nominated sci-fi series.


He says:

I only made it through season two, so I was really nervous hanging out with Hurley/Jorge recently, because I didn’t want to hear something about how it all resolves, or overhear anyone else talking about it. I really like the show though.

“Hurley” marks the band’s first release through indie label Epitaph Records (they were previously signed to Geffen Records/Interscope for 12 years). The CD arrives in stores on Sept. 14.

Garcia told TVGuide.com:

I’m excited to know that people in the music stores I used to work will soon be opening boxes full of my smiling face.

Garcia will also be seen as island protector in the eagerly anticipated 12-minute epilogue included in the “LOST” season six DVD/Blu-ray release, available Aug. 24.

“LOST” is nominated this year for 11 Emmys, including nods for Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for lead Matthew Fox (Jack Shepard), and Outstanding Supporting Actor for both Michael Emerson (Benjamin Linus)and Terry o’Quinn (John Locke).

Hurley is featured on Clatto’s list of the 12 Heroes in Horror/Sci-Fi That Won’t Make You Feel Like an Asshole.
