Tom Sizemore Joins 'Hawaii Five-0'

Tom SizemoreLast week it was announced that 'Lost' star Terry O'Quinn has booked a recurring role on 'Hawaii Five-0,' and now we hear that Tom Sizemore is joining the cast for a multi-episode storyline.

According to 'Entertainment Weekly,' Sizemore will appear in several episodes of the cop drama's upcoming second season. 'The 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Black Hawk Down' star will play the head of Hawaii Police's Internal Affairs unit.

After the twists and turns of the debut season, Sizemore's character will be actively investigating the Five-0 unit. A hardboiled former Detroit Homicide Detective, he reportedly won't cut Steve and the gang any slack.

'Hawaii Five-0' was CBS's breakout hit of the Fall 2010 season, and was one of a small group of new network shows to be given a second season.

CBS head Les Moonves is confident that the series will become a new cash cow for the network, telling investors last month that it's poised to become a billion-dollar franchise. Sources estimate that CBS earns $5 million per episode thanks to a recent syndication deal.

Sizemore's movie career has taken a backseat in recent years as he battled substance abuse problems and spent time in jail on drugs offences. In 2010 he and then-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss appeared on a volatile Season 3 of 'Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew,' since when he says he's managed to remain sober.

'Hawaii Five-0' Season 2 is due to premiere in September on CBS.

I have no doubt that one day we will one day see Tom enjoying his very own "Robert-Downey-Jr-As-IronMan-Comeback- Success" moment in the sun. Maybe once Charlie Sheen gets his head out of his ass he will be wise to follow in their footsteps.

He was awesome in Robbery Homicide Division TV series 8 years ago. Which i finished a couple of weeks ago. This must mean that Exit/strategy is no longer viable for a fox mid season replacement. Which once again proves that broadcast television doesn't make authentic/ambitious crime drama like they used to. The legacy of Crimestory, Hillstreet Blues, Nypd blue, EZ streets, Robbery Homicide Division, Boomtown, and The district. Why is the top three highest quality crime drama are on cable.
