Hawaii Five-O set to hit our screens in 1 week

There has been so much hype about this TV action/drama show; critics are raving about it and certainly the promos for the show look enticing with such a handsome cast. Hawaii Five-O is not an original concept; it’s a remake of the 1968-1980’s series where the series follows an elite state police unit out to fight crime in exotic Hawaii. With these ingredients: handsome cast, Hawaii, beaches, action it’s bound to make entertaining TV. With all these remakes and reboots of TV series like Hawaii Five-O and Nikita… I wonder if they plan to re-do Baywatch? Hmmm…

Back to Hawaii Five-O, the impressive cast includes Aussie Alex O’Loughlin - Is it me or is it now a must for every US TV show to cast an Aussie in a leading role? (which is pretty cool). Examples: Simon Baker – The Mentalist, Toni Collette – United States of Tara, Rachel Griffiths – Brothers and sisters, Rose Byrne – Damages, Tammin Sursok – Pretty Little Liars.

Alex plays Lietenant Commander Steven who is in charge of the unit. Scott Caan (Ocean 11 movies) plays his partner Detective sergeant Danny Williams. Rounding off the team are Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) playing Police Officer Chin Ho Kelly and Grace Park playing Kono Kalakaua a newly police graduate. Did you know that Hawaii Five-O wanted to cast Maggie Q? But Nikita secured her first. Seems like Daniel Dae Kim can’t get off the island Hawaii! Lost was filmed there, now Hawaii Five-O. With this series going great guns, Daniel might be stuck on Hawaii for a number of years.

You can catch this exciting new series premiering on Channel 10 on January 30th 8:30.
