James Marsters Joins the New 'Hawaii Five-O'

james marstersBad boy for hire James Marsters has landed his next villainous role. The former 'Buffy' bloodsucker and current 'Caprica' cult leader will play Steve McGarrett's nemesis in the new 'Hawaii Five-O.'

Marsters announced the big news on his official Facebook page. Sadly, he's only signed for a guest spot in the CBS pilot, produced by uber-geeks of the moment Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman ('Fringe,' 'Star Trek'). Of course, the guest gig could turn into a recurring role if the producers like what they see (fingers crossed!).

I've been on the fence about this project, but I might give it a shot now that Marsters is on board. I'd love to see the guy chew some scenery on another new show, especially after watching his great dark turn on 'Caprica.'

It seems like Orci and Kurtzman are trying to appeal to their fellow geeks with their recent 'Hawaii Five-O' casting picks. Genre/sci-fi vets Grace Park ('Battlestar Galactica'), Daniel Dae Kim ('Lost'), and Alex O'Loughlin ('Moonlight') have all been cast in key roles, along with Scott Caan and Jean Smart. It should be interesting to see these folks work together if the pilot goes to series (and yes, it will go to series).

If they don't keep the theme song there is really no point in a remake! Although, I do find myself interested...it was a very hard hitting show for it's time...especially early in the series!

Why no comments on James Marsters role on "Torchwood"? Watching him spar with John Barrowman is so much fun.

They may not have mentioned it, but that's definitely a pic of Captain John accompanying this article. Yum.

almost all the things we watch in the movies has been done before. Even the tired story in Avatar, read the American Indians. . . only they lost.

Original? That hasn't been seen since Star Wars, which is only a western put to space. It all seems new when you are you young and have not read or seen anything.

Not sure why, Alex. We've gotten lots of spammers today, so maybe your comment was deleted by mistake. Feel free to post your thoughts again. Thanks ... MM.

I just wish he would bleach his hair again. I'm not a fan of his current look, except for the picture in this article.

I just really liked the "Spike" hair.

The list of 'remakes' would stagger anyone- i hear a 'Gilligan's Island' movie in the works- along with 'Red Dawn', 'Clash of the Titans' already out, 'Nightmare on Elm St,' i guess noone can come up with anything original. C'mon hollywood!!
