Jorge Garcia is thrilled that Weezer decided to use his friendly face as the cover of their new album Hurley in homage to his character on Lost!
"How awesome is that! It totally put a smile on my face, to say the least," says Jorge. "It ranks right up there with getting my own action figure."
So how did this deal go down? Well Jorge met lead singer Rivers Cuomo backstage at The George Lopez Show and asked if he could take a picture with him. Jorge adds:
“And then two months later I get an email from my manager saying, ‘Listen, Weezer contacted us and they want you to be on the cover of their new CD…I thought that was really cool.”
It is cool…and different!
Hurley comes out on September 15 — will U be checking it out?
