Jorge, not Gorge

From upi.com: Jorge Garcia, aka burly Hurley on ABC's hit series "Lost," says viewers grumbling because his stranded character appears to well-fed will soon be sated.
In the March issue of Maxim, Garcia reveals he has lost 30 pounds.
"I can afford to not live on rum and burritos and take better care of myself," he told the magazine. "Besides, there were enough people who were waiting for my character to lose weight as a result of being stranded on a desert island."
Garcia said fans would offer advice as well as their preferred weight loss methods, the New York Post said.
One fan sent "a coupon for Slim Fast along with a bunch of religious pamphlets" and "dieters' tea -- but she didn't send me the box, just a couple of bags in an envelope."
