Jorge García (born April 28, 1973) is a U.S. actor and comedian. He first came to public attention with his performance as Hector Lopez on the television show Becker and later for his portrayal of Hugo "Hurley" Reyes in the television series Lost. García also performs as a stand-up comedian.

García was born in Omaha, Nebraska. His mother, Dora Mesa, is a Cuban-born professor, and his father, Humberto Garcia, is a Chilean-born doctor. He grew up in Southern California and went to San Clemente High School. As a senior, he was selected by the faculty as "Triton of the Year", the highest award given to a graduating senior.

García was the first actor to be cast on Lost. He had originally auditioned for the role of Sawyer; however, the producers saw him on Curb Your Enthusiasm the night before casting began, and created the character of Hugo Reyes specifically for him.
