LOST‘ star Jorge Garcia has had no trouble finding work since his island days, first landing a regular role on FOX’s now-cancelled drama ‘Alcatraz,’ and most recently returning to his ‘LOST’ roots for a giant role on ABC’s ‘Once Upon A Time.’ Now, the actor will join fellow ‘LOST’ alum Michael Emerson on CBS, taking a new role on upcoming pilot ‘The Ordained,’ but who will he play? And might this one stick around a bit longer than ‘Alcatraz’?

Earlier this month we learned that two major ‘LOST’ alum had found themselves attached to The CW pilots, but it seems theirs aren’t the only post-island careers to receive a blessing. Via The Hollywood Reporter, we’ve learned that giant star Jorge Garcia has joined CBS’ upcoming drama ‘The Ordained,’ addiing to a cast led by departed ‘Boardwalk Empire‘ star Charlie Cox.

‘Ordained’ follows Kennedy-esque family son Tom (Cox) who leaves his position within the priesthood and becomes a lawyer to prevent his politician sister from being assassinated. Garcia will take the role of Carlos, the law firm’s staff investigator and Tom’s main ally and friend. He’s described as an easygoing hotdog-eating guy disparate from the rest of the suits at the office who uses unorthodox methods to get the job done and often does so with levity and humor.

Journalist and author Lisa Takeuchi Cullen will write the pilot script for CBS Television Studios, and will executive produce alongside Frank Marshall, Larry Shuman and A.B. Fischer.

What say you? Are you excited to see Jorge Garcia back on TV again? Will ‘The Ordained’ fare better than ‘Alcatraz’?
