Lost Reunion on MacGyver: Jorge Garcia Crosses Over as Hawaii Five-0's Jerry

MacGyver Jorge Garcia

Prepare to experience some Desmond/Hurley flashbacks (or flash-sideways?) when Lost alumni Jorge Garcia and Henry Ian Cusick reunite on CBS’ MacGyver.

Cusick — who joined MacGyver this season as new Phoenix Foundation owner Russ Taylor — teased the reunion via a selfie, to which MacGyver‘s own Twitter handle confirmed that Garcia will reprise his role as Hawaii Five-0 conspiracy theorist Jerry Ortega.

Garcia made his Five-0 debut in early Season 4, when Jerry was introduced as an old high school classmate of Chin Ho Kelly’s (played by… Lost alum Daniel Dae Kim!). When Five-0 was renewed for Season 6, Garcia was promoted to series regular status. He last appeared on Five-0 in the Season 10 opener, at the end of which Jerry — after being shot — chose to step away from the task force and live his life a bit differently.

“Playing Jerry was a blast, and I look forward to popping in again to play with my TV ohana,” Garcia shared back then in a statement to TVLine.  Showrunner Peter M. Lenkov in turn said, “There will always be a place for Jorge and Jerry on Hawaii Five-0” — or, as it turns out, one of Lenkov’s other CBS drama reboots.

MacGyver airs Fridays at 8/7c. Garcia’s air date has not yet been locked in.
