Jorge Garcia as Dr. Diego SotoJorge Garcia prefers wearing "more clothes" in 'Alcatraz' than he was able to in Lost.

The 38-year-old actor is currently portraying comic book store owner and writer Dr. Diego Soto in the Fox prison drama, and he is enjoying playing a character who is "smarter" than his Lost alter-ego Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes.

"It was nice to do something different after 'Lost' for so long. It's kind of nice having a character who wears more clothes and is smarter. It's been a lot of fun finding new things to do with my character, that it great for an actor," he said.

Jorge Garcia and J.J. Abrams

Jorge Garcia was confident Alcatraz would be successful because of J.J. Abrams.

The 38-year-old actor - who worked alongside the Lost co-creator during his time playing Hugo "Hurley" Reyes on the show - knew he was in "safe hands" when he agreed to portray Dr. Diego "Doc" Soto in the new Fox TV series because he has so much confidence in the helmer.

"I love what J.J. does with his work and he's also just a really great guy. So when he called and said, 'I'm doing this new show, just give me a call if you're not doing anything because we definitely want to work with you again,' then that makes you feel great. Knowing that the show is a J.J. show I definitely feel that I'm in good hands."
