Tips for working in rain scenes.

Well TIP actually. There is only one.

If you're shooting a rain scene, leave the underwear in the trailer.

You can either "go cowboy" to set or you'll be forced to "go cowboy" home. Because nothing sucks worse than the moment you realize your underwear is wet. And now they're moving the camera so you have about twenty minutes to sit in your wet shorts.

It's times like these when I am forced to turn to my fellow cast mates and remark, "Isn't this glamorous?" "Truly the greatest job in the world. It's so glamorous."

Ever since the first season watching all the actors having to get all sweaty, wet, and dirty, I've figured that you all deserve some kind of extra hazardous duty pay. Working like that is definitely the downside of your profession!

Carol Menescal Lilly said...

Hi Jorge!
Can u send a kiss to Evi from me, please? Tell her I've sent her 2 letters :)
I miss you guys and Lost!
Your blog rocks I'm always here!
I know i won't get any spoiler, but just tell us some news from the cast too!

psdrummin said...

i wear a 44 brief and it weighs about 30 pounds wet.

Miss Parenteau said...

hahaha, you rock :)

Fernando Espinoza said...

let me tell you that you look like one of the character of prison break, you could be have work in that great tv shows too, like Sucre's friend (manche) jejeje.
About this topic, I agree that you deserve get extra pay because of this situation that you and Emily (muack)and Evangeline(muack) are happening...xau

Hoku said...

As someone who works outdoors on Oahu I am quite familiar with dealing with the wet clothing issue. Here, it can be sunny and hot in one valley and pouring 6 inches of rain in the next! So I have learned to carry at least one change of clothes in my car. They must be using that rain making machine on set, or you must have found that singular valley, cuz we are dyin for rain on the leeward side. Send some to my house!!!

Hey fella, but you can always wear a bathing trunk or a speedo (ouch lol)!
In a rain scene is kind of weird to go swinging, specially if you need to run for your character's life! LOL

And I enjoying this blog a lot!! I've been having lots of fun since I first came here!!

Greetings from your brazilian 'cousin'

david alandí said...

vaya tela Jorge!!

Una pregunta...

Emilie, Evangeline, Elisabeth y Yunjin tambien van en plan "cowgirl" en las escenas de lluvia? ajajaj

lil_yuna_dreamer said...

Really you can not imagine how much i envy you! God! i wish someday to be on a show or a movie!! While that day comes i'll still be playing theatre.
P.S hate to live in an "unknonw" place like Tenerife... there's not oportunities to be on any show

jair d said...

who's in the coffin, hurley? WHO'S THERE?

Unknown said...

Hola Jorge, aqui una fan española, acabo de encontrar esta pagina y si conoces el castellano podrias escribir algo en nuestro idioma que por aqui a mucha gente que usamos los subtitulos.
Saludos desde España

Jan said...

Okay, I'm speechless.

(psdrummin cracked me up!)

2costa said...

is that a tighy whitey psdrummin or more of a boxer brief?

Honeybell said...

This is all I'll be thinking about while watching the new season. "Jorge's gone commando." :|


2costa-I think tightey whitey's would be much more uncomfortable, but bein' a girl & I'm just guessing . . .

Enrico said...

Well, I guess the "go cowboy" dilemma is something you're glad to have when you realize the job you're doing (and what a job!).. I just hope you understand how lucky you are and wish you a great time, you guys are doing an extremly good job :)

PS: are you ever going to say on the show "Hey ladies, it's Hurley time!"? ;)

Unknown said...

You learn something new every day. I never realized that cowboys didn't wear drawers. Huh.

Well, I'll never be able to view a scene where it's raining the same way ever again. Keep that backside powdered! I would imagine there's nothing worse than a rashy bottom.

Sue Wacvet said...

I love you, Jorge, but this is a picture I didn't want in my mind!

JJB said...

Haha, thank you for the tip, I'm sure we'll all keep that in mind. ;)

Peggy said...

just think of it this way...if you were REALLY lost on a deserted island, you would most likely "go cowboy" for comfort and to lessen laundering, so basically when you are "going cowboy" on the set...you're in true character. LOL

kookie said...

Okay, it's not glamorous, but face it...no one looks better dripping wet than the cast of your show. The fans demand it. :)

Mags said...

well, when the show started i wasn't that thrilled, but hey, i gave it a shot... and guess what, that best thing i ever did! it's really the greatest show on television, one of the best ever! and we can watch amazing and sweet actors as you! you're lucky! oh, and i've read a lot of spoilers, a lot of rumours, but believe, never saw any like this one! you just killed me. it'll rain! i can't believe it! XD
anyway, i understand that it must suck having to wear all those wet clothes... i love the rain, but the afterwards, when it stops and we are all wet it's really "glamorous", yep!
keep giving us this tips, we love it. hugs

Unknown said...

Don't know why, but I keep thinking about this. Not being a guy, I have no idea, but do you really want to be sans underpants when wearing wet denim? I would think not. That can't be comfortable either.

Courage dude, courage!

--thefox-- said...

LMAO!! OMG dude youre hilarious! I personally think you should all go 'cowboy' as you like to say, this would of course be much better depending on whos also in the scene *cough* Foxy *cough*

2costa said...

i think they wore those old time underwear in brokeback mountain the one that are like a jumpsuit with the square in the back with the two buttons on top, i may be wrong... your mostley right honeybell, boxer briefs are basically tighty's with underroos colors. Boxers are way more free and easy, but dont supply that manly support we sometimes need

2costa said...

Jorge i agree that unbreakable is the best M night.

Hi J. Garcia

I'm from Brazil and it´s my first time here on your blog, and I want to ask you something and maybe you could write about it here if you haven´t yet.

Here in Brazil the 2nd season aired this year, so we are very late, but I downloaded all the episodes from the internet as they come out in USA, but I have all the dvd boxes.

So I want to know what do you think about the episodes be online without any control? I can't see any big demage for you actors 'cuse this makes you and the show more popular.

thanks...and hurley is awesome!

and wet underwear really sucks!

Admin said...

omg.. blog hugo :D im poland tv lost :D :D nice

Admin said...

hehehehheheheh lol im no speak english ;(

Callebe Garcia said...

As Tobias said, Lost's seasons were available for download all over the internet, right after the show on ABC. And I need to confess, I have watched all the last season on the internet.

But we weren't as late as he said! A free channel called Globo reproduced the 2nd season this year. But the third season was on a paid cable channel called AXN (owned by Sony) with a month of delay.

Anyway, I watched the show on the internet, I watched again on AXN and I'm waiting the box to be relesead to buy and re watch it all over again!

And I know that downloading from the internet is piracy and it's not legal nor cool. But I'm one of the viewers that consume the stuff after, so it's more like a broadcast kind of thing for me, because I erase the file after watching.

See ya, dude!

Teh Crazycakes said...


How many days do you have to shoot the rain scenes for? I recommend some BodyGlide.

Glamourous...hmmm, have you tried doing the hair flip and shake, with the coy stance and sultry eyes? If I were you, I would do that to Naveen.

sawyerrules said...

Rain on Lost is not a good thing, I wish that its doesn't mean that I think its means...:(

¿Hurley under the rain?

PONCIL said...

I hope you don´t break your leg and they have to rip your trousers to put it in plaster ;)

christa said...

eh u da kine!!

maven said...

Hey, Jorge -- you're up against Naveen in the Character Cup at DarkUfo! Unfortunately, you're behind right now. Everyone here go vote for Hurley.

www.kate06.skyblog.com said...

I hope you first take was the good one ! Because I agree be wet and dirty is not pleasant =)

how many episodes have you shot yet?

Because I am so desperate without Lost =(
You do a so great job, I am addicted to Lost ^^

Bye and good luck for the others wet scenes you will have to shoot ;)

Yes...caco is right...Lost is on AXN too but I started watching it on globo channel than I changed to Axn.
Most people who download the episodes do not have cable. it was a friend of mine, who doesn`t have cable tv, that told me that it was possible to download it from the net...
As you caco, I don`t have the downloaded episodes anymore because I buy the dvd boxes.

AK7 said...

I know it won't make you happier but you CAN sit 20 min in your wet underwear because Oahu is hot. Really hot. And i just realize that weather in poland is bad, means 10 layers of warm clothes is rather good idea. Maybe you want to change places with me? :D

ironica said...

If I had to stay on an island, with Josh Holloway, for a lot of money, I would be glad to work with wet short. Regards from Italy.

justanothersky said...

Hi Jorge, thanks for creating a blog to share your thoughts with us. :)
And I am just wondering whether wearing swimwear underneath would be better for shooting those rain scenes?
I've never tried it before (Obviously), just thought since they are designed to be worn in the water, might do a better job than regular underwear.

Laura said...

Well, I will remember it if someday I become an actress and I have to do a rain scene XP

Greetings from Barcelona!

Unknown said...

so the rumour about you wearing 'kate's' underwear on set is untrue?

Ruth said...

LOLOLOLOLLOLOLOLOLOLOOOOLOOLOL Well, like de mille said. Pain lasts a minute, film is forever! lol I'm pretty sure rain scene are a lot easier to enjoy when you're watching not actually standing there. Going cowboy?! LOLOLOLOLOL oh boy, the mental images lol

Halie said...

So after reading this post and all the comments, I feel like I must be missing something. Why can't you just wear one pair of underwear, bring another and change into it after you're done for the day? It kind of makes it sound like you just own one pair! =)

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's imagery. Prior to the ed hardy clothing line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed hardy, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy clothing time to take on a partner that could help me manage the demand and opportunities for the ed hardy T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder, there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his new artwork.
