Alex O'Loughlin Gives Hawaii Five-O Updates (James Marsters mentions)

Alex O'Loughlin Gives Hawaii Five-O Updates (FYI: James Marsters' character is Victor Hesse, who's mentioned in Alex's Q&A):

by David Humphreys on Apr 22, 2010


AOL_dot_COM: We know that Alex can't talk about the Hawaii 5.0 pilot, but can he tell us something about McGarrett's nemesis?

That's an interesting question.  Victor Hesse...what can I tell you about him?  McGarrett has a huge debt- a life-long debt to settle with this man.  And that's probably all I can say at this point.


Hawaii Five-O: New Alex O’Loughlin Pilot Is Finished

At the recent premiere of his romantic comedy, The Back-Up Plan, Alex O’Loughlin revealed that he’s finished filming the new Hawaii Five-O pilot and it’s been delivered to CBS.

Based on the classic Jack Lord series, CBS has been trying to get a new Hawaii Five-O off the ground for awhile. This latest attempt has gotten further than the others and will star O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, and Daniel Dae Kim. As guest stars in the pilot, Jean Smart plays the Governor of Hawaii and James Marsters plays a villain.

O’Loughlin says that fans of the original series will recognize some key elements of the original series, including the familiar catchphrase, “Book ‘em Danno.”

He said, “I’ve already said it, I’ve done it, it’s in the can… We’re keeping the theme tune and I’m going to grow the quiff out and keep it sitting there like a banana.”

A veteran of short-lived CBS series Three Rivers and Moonlight, O’Loughlin says the finished project’s been delivered to the network executives and they await their decision. He has a good feeling about the project.

If the new Hawaii Five-O does become a series, O’Loughlin says he’ll have to work on his beach skills. “I’m a terrible surfer but I will learn to surf when we get over there,” he said.

What do you think? Are you excited to see the new Hawaii Five-O? If it doesn’t become a series, should CBS still release the pilot?
