Richard T. JonesIt's been a busy few weeks for the 'Hawaii Five-0' casting team. Hot on the heels of the news that Terry O'Quinn and Tom Sizemore are joining the cast for Season 2, we hear that Richard T. Jones is the latest actor to start packing his beach towel and shorts.

According to TVGuide.com, the 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' star has has signed on for a recurring role as the new Governor of Hawaii.

Jones will play the previously unseen Lt. Governor, who steps in to replace Jean Smart in the governor's mansion. Her character, Governor Pat Jameson, was assassinated in the Season 1 Finale after being exposed as a traitor.

A source close to the show said that this new -- as yet unnamed -- governor will be more conservative than Jameson and keep a tighter leash on Steve McGarrett and his team.

He'll be "cleaning up a lot of the mess left by the previous administration."

Jones has several series-regular roles under his belt, most recently as FBI Special Agent Ellison on 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.' Before that he had breakout roles on 'Girlfriends' and 'Judging Amy.'

The rebooted 'Hawaii Five-0' was CBS's big hit of the Fall 2010 season, and CBS head Les Moonves is confident that the series will become a new cash cow for the network. Sources estimate that CBS earns $5 million per episode thanks to a recent syndication deal.

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

Damn, that means he's going to insist they make the character a jesus-licking, bible-blabbing christofascist religious freak. And for some insane reason, instead of finding someone else to play the role, they'll give in and let him bible thump on the show. "He's spiritual!" they'll say. Idiots.
