The former Lost star finds himself haunted by the unexplainable on Fox's Alcatraz, debuting this month. We asked the 38-year-old to spill on his new show, Spanglish and singing with Weezer.
On filming the show
: "We shot two days on Alcatraz. It was cool; we had access to places other people aren’t allowed to go."
On his love of history
: "I love traveling to places with history. Seeing the Great Pyramid is probably number one on my travel list. I really want to go see the seven wonders of the world."
On his blog, "Further Dispatches"
: "It's really just a way to stay connected to the fans. I’ve been doing it since 2007, and it's just random things I find interesting. There are a lot of pictures of my dogs."
On being bilingual
: "I just did my first movie in Spanish. It's called Maktub. It was really a challenge; I grew up with a really rough, Cuban-influenced Spanglish. So my best parts are clearly when I don’t open my mouth!"
On being a muse
: "I met Rivers Cuomo from Weezer on Lopez Tonight last year, and he asked if he could take a photo with me. Two months later I get an email asking if I’d be interested in being their cover model for their album, which they called Hurley [after Garcia’s Lost character]. I ended up singing with the band a few times. It’s pretty surreal."
