Jorge Garcia, who played Hurley on the TV show Lost, says he is excited to be featured on the cover of the new [lastfm]Weezer[/lastfm] album, which is named after his signature character.
“How awesome is that! It totally put a smile on my face, to say the least,” Garcia told EW.com. “It ranks right up there with getting my own action figure. I’m a huge fan of the opening riff of ‘Hash Pipe.’ It’s like the theme song to Peter Gunn times 1000.”
The genesis for Garcia’s appearance on the cover dates back to May 12, when Garcia met Weezer frontman [lastfm]Rivers Cuomo[/lastfm] backstage at a taping of The George Lopez Show. The two took a photo together that night that wound up being used for the cover.
“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,’” Garcia said.
Hurley is set to hit stores September 15.
