Starting Wet

Those two words, spoke to me by the AD last night are why I'm feeling slight dread about going to work today. 

I can handle waking up at 4:30 to make the 6am call. 
And usually only two scenes to shoot in one day is a breeze. 
But "starting wet" messes the whole thing up. 

Why did I even shower today? (Well I guess I showered because that is my routine. So was putting on deodorant when I know "starting wet" is going to wash it off anyway.)

What I did not do however, is put on underwear. On a day that I "start wet" I pack it in bag to put on at the end of my day. A small comfort that I will be looking forward to I assure you.

Remember to vote folks.

I voted. 5 minutes. 8:23 am. Voter number 122. Small town, USA.

and, yes, my underwear were intact upon voting. Hope yours were, as well. :)

hromaki said...

that's so interesting! for some reason, i guess i thought being an actor would be awesome every day and that you would never feel the dread the rest of us poor working folk do on a sometimes frequent basis. well, good luck and hope it goes well!

ew. "starting wet" just sounds cold and clammy and uncomfortable. i got thrown into a swimming pool with my clothes on at a party last summer, and i spent the rest of the party peeling my clothes away from my body and just being miserable... and i was wishing like hell i hadn't worn underwear.

think dry thoughts, jorge. my thoughts are with you. we're all counting on you...

hromaki said...

oh, and p.s. already voted, too.

groovymom said...

ick - what a way to start the day! (I'm thiking water park sticky - FUN!) Good thinkg you took along your "dry bag"...

Thanks for the "vote" shout out! I hope we get some good news today!

All the best!

Hi Jorge,
I would have skipped the shower. But hey, that's how I roll. lol! You gotta always have clean undies, my friend. At least at the end of the day, no matter how wet it starts out, you have your clean, dry undies ;D
I hope you packed your deodorant too! You gotta replace what washes off.

Have a great day!!
Big Hugs,

PS: Voting is my priority today :)

Key Jorge..

kinda lousy when you have to get up that early and you have to start out being wet, but guess in the long run it'll be all worth it in the end. reading some of the small tidbit spoilers that that come on darkufo and spoilerfix sounds like season 5 is going to be very intersting and cant wait till the season starts, still can't believe we have to wait for 2.5 months for it, but glad to have season 4 coming out dvd in about a months time, so im sure alot of us will be buying it that day it comes out and watching it like crazy till the new season starts. So do you ever watch the past seasons on dvd? GOOD LUCK in the voting polls and hope the right "man" gets in, i'd know who i'd be voting for if i was an american (im canadian).

Jodi said...

Underwear & deodorant would be packed for me as well.

I just thought of something...you'll probably have sand attached to your feet all day! Ugh! I hate that feeling. I don't blame you for dreading it.

Jodi said...

Whoops! I forgot to say - I voted already too :)

Petra said...

Here's hoping that the wet is also warm. Of course, in Hawaii, it is bound to be warmer than here! LOL.

Thanks for the teeny tiny look into your LOST world, Jorge. It will make the wait for Season 5 a little easier!

: ) P

cpennylane said...

Here's a bright side -- at least you aren't filming in Alaska?

Heather (a.k.a. Bella) said...

So now, whenever I see scenes of Hurley in water, I'll know you're going commando.


Happy Election Day! (At least, I hope it ends up being happy...)

maven said...


Be a part of a historical election!

Thanks for that insight into the wonderful world of acting, Jorge! Keep warm!

Laura Caçoeiro said...

In those days where you have to wake early, go to work knowing that it is raining outside and you feel most sad, think about the fans of Lost who revere the series and who love your character. Because you have to got your strength in your fans.

I never loved a series like Lost and never be so asiosa that a new season to start. Think of us, fans desperate to find news of the island.

I seen the trailer for the new season. Very promising. My sweet Hurley with a gun in hand? The Kate escape from who? Nerves ...

Once I and my boyfriend went to Lisbon to go to a football tournament of the PS3. But we did not know the exact address and had to be looking. It started raining hard and we pumped full. We spent the rest of the day in wet clothes!

I also hope that Americans will vote. And well.

Ps: Put a picture of Beth masked in Hallowen!

Ralph- said...

if you are shooting in the "rain" and your pants are all soaking wet, and you aren't wearing underpants. wont we all see what is going on? you know, down south.

Hoku said...

Saw the film trucks headed to the north shore about 4:30 am today, wonder if it is for your "wet" shoot, or something with those left behind... hard to tell with shooting going on sometimes simultaneously. I feel for you. I work outside and nothing is worse than getting wet and having to wear those clothes for the rest of the night. (yes I work all night) Just got home and will definitely vote!

redelf said...

Starting wet. Not the way to start the day.

I was up at 5:30 am and down at the polls at 5.55 am ready to vote!!

Lorena Castro said...

You should think it worths because people who watches Lost enjoy sooooo much....

Thank you!!!!

Kevin said...

Haha! Thanx for the glimpse into your routine as an actor. Good to know.

By chance could you tell us what episode/scene (however vague you wanna be of course) so when it airs we can enjoy it all the more with that "behind the scenes" knowledge?

You rock! :D

Tiffany Noélli said...

Acordar cedo é chato as vezes, e ficar molhado por um bom tempo também, rs... Mas o bom da sua vida, que com certeza você tem uma profissão que gosta! filmar, atuar deve ser bem divertido. Aposto que várias pessoas gostariam de estar em seu lugar, e trabalhar na área que ama. Beijinhos Jorge, linda semana! =)

Bethany James Leigh Shady said...

by the end of the day you will see what wonderful comando joys i have been enjoying for years now.

Avinash said...

Americans, please don't vote unless you're voting Obama.

Ty said...

I voted...small town in Wisconsin...1043 at 9:30am.
Exciting day!


ConnieC said...

I voted. I stood in line an hour, almost to the minute. It was before lunch. My husband met me for lunch, then went to vote. He walked right up, cast his ballot, and was out in less than 5 minutes. That's how my luck goes.

And isn't commando uncomfortable in that situation? Not being a man, I have no experience with that. But it sounds like it would make the "starting wet" part worse.

Hope you got through it ok.

Jeez...I'm fairly new as a visitor here. Already feel like I know a little too much about the two of you, Jorge and Beth. ;-)
Happy to be here and enjoying reading the psotings and comments. I may even one day soon post my Lost theory. It's ALL about Hurley.

Although I am a SoCal resident, I am Canadian and a Permanent Resident. I cannot vote.

Sue Wacvet said...

So now we know that whenever you're "wet" you're also "going commando." Great. That will add a whole new aspect to the show. ;-)

Sue Wacvet said...

I voted last Friday!

Please Type Legibly said...

Hang in there, Jorge! (Uh, no pun intended)

Cloudia said...

Oh, Dude - how yucky!
Is that why you looked kinda sad at the store yesterday in Kahala?
Glad most folks left you alone to your thoughts. Do love your work, and what your character reps, though.
Saw you on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' was Larry David cool to work with?

Dolphin Boy said...

"Start wet"? sounds like AD Schro saying!!

I voted secret ballot!

Tasha Who? said...

Is it possible to take comfort in the fact that not all occupations work well with the whole "starting wet" ideal?

Well, I tried.

And I voted. And with close to 4 hours left to sleep before I have to get up to go to work, I'm still quite exhilarated after tonight's events!

Anonymous said...

Ah, you are so lucky to be where you are (even if you "start wet"). I get so excited when you write about working on set, because that is where I want to be eventually. So break a leg on set and I will be looking forward to your future posts!


Movie Star Wife said...

That reminds me of when my "Movie Star" was an extra and stand-in during filming of Public Enemies (out next July). (That is how I got my name, by the way.)

He did some overnight shoots where they started at 5:00 pm and he would get home at 8:00am. Then he had to go to his "real job". It was a bit crazy.

But he didn't go commando. Tee Hee.

Honeybell said...

I cannot verbalize how close I felt to you last season knowing the state of your underwear during wet scenes. Just to reciprocate, you should know I am currently wearing underwear. They have skulls on them.

You know, I type this stuff, and really hope you know I'm joking . . .

James Hernandez said...


Has anyone told you 'your all wet'. Oh wait the director did! Hee Hee :-)

Capcom said...

Heheh, I remember your first post about wet underwear. X-D

Wise man.

mabochda said...

alrightie then, now when we see you wet on the show we'll know you weren't wearing any undies and that's what we'll be thinking about LOL

Rodolfo Rojas said...

Hola Jorge,

Hey man, I love the show!!!! more addicting than crack (not that I've ever done it).. I love your character and the whole shabang!!! I'm a 4th year medical student and I live in Los Angeles, CA. I read that you are 1/2 Chileno!! I was born in Chile (cool). I came to the States back in '86 during Pinochet's regime (not as bad as people said it was). Well bro I wish you the best and I hope your getting some Empanadas somewhere in Hawai'i. Your blog is really awesome for Lost fans, since we get a glimpse of the show from a true insider... take care and God bless!!! Viva CHILE.

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.
