Notice Anything Different?
Yes, this is the NEW Hawaii Five-O, to premiere on CBS this fall. The series began shooting yesterday (July 15). It stars Alex O'Loughlin as Steve McGarret. I like him as the vampire in Moonlight. Dan-o will be played by Scott Caan. I've never seen him in anything, but he's James Caan's son. My first assignment when I moved to Hawaii in '79 was to cover the filming of an episode of Hawaii Five-O. I met Jack Lord several times. He used to show up for all the change-of-command ceremonies at Hickam AFB. And you just couldn't tool around Oahu without occasionally spotting the production company. I hope this new show lives up to the old one.
