Dude. That's deep.

I believe the proper response, upon reading this story of Earl Hickey of NBC's My Name Is Earl and Hugo "Hurley" Reyes of ABC's Lost as the slacker Everyman is "Dude. There's like a thesis or something in that." That is all.

(Will we ever learn how Hurley got his nickname? Leave your theories as to its origin in the comments.)

We're going to find out in the season-ending Big Twist that he's actually former Duke point guard Bobby Hurley, gone to seed.

Dude, Hurley worked in a fast-food restaurant. The mind leaps to conclusions.

As over-analysis goes, that article's pretty good. If you asked Abrams, though, he might just say "I liked Jorge." As I recall, he read for the part and was signed the moment the reading was done.
