McGarrett Takes On UFC's 'The Iceman,' Chuck Liddell on 'Hawaii Five-0' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 25th 2011 5:15AM
Chuck Liddell, 'Hawaii Five-0'While there was a very minor cross-over event with 'NCIS: Los Angeles,' the bigger shock to the system on 'Hawaii Five-0' (Mon, 10PM ET on CBS) was the appearance of retired UFC champ Chuck Liddell. Even worse, he was there to lay the beatdown on McGarrett, after McGarrett injured his intended opponent in a charity event.

You have to give McGarrett credit for heart, and he didn't stay down when he could have. He gave it his all, but this is the 'Iceman,' and McGarrett's all doesn't even come close to leaving a lasting impression on the Hall-of-Famer. But at least Alex O'Loughlin can now say that he stepped into the ring with Chuck Liddell and lived to tell the tale.

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.

Five Cop Shows That Should Never Be Remade

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 2nd 2010 6:24PM
Sgt. Esterhaus on 'Hill Street Blues'It's pilot time again and this season the networks have decided to turn back the clock, specifically on old cop and crime shows, to save their sinking ratings.

For instance, NBC is bringing back the mystery series 'The Rockford Files' with Dermot Mulroney in the role that James Garner turned into a classic TV crime fighter. CBS has also ordered a remake of the procedural cop classic 'Hawaii Five-O' with Scott Caan and Jean Smart.

Normally, my gut reacts to a TV remake the same way a person who just washed his car reacts to a line of dark clouds (a lot of cursing and shaking of fists at God or some other celestial being). However, if done right, anything has the chance to be good... unless it's one of the following cop serials, which should never be touched by a TV producer ever again.

Spring TV: Which Pilots Will Crash and Burn?

by Stephanie Earp, posted Mar 23rd 2010 5:32PM

There are two groups of people who get really excited about pilot season: L.A. actors hoping for a break and television writers. Being a member of the latter category, I admit to a tingly feeling creeping over me as word of the shows in development at all the big networks are starting to leak out. While most people are attributing feelings of renewal to the change in the weather, I'm happily anticipating what J.J. Abrams has in store for us this fall.

'Battlestar's' Park Lands on 'Hawaii Five-0' Remake

by Brad Trechak, posted Mar 1st 2010 10:02AM
Tricia Helfer and Grace ParkGrace Park seems to have a thing for television remakes. She shot to fame as Boomer on 'Battlestar Galactica' and now she's going to have a role on the new 'Hawaii Five-0' on CBS. Granted, in between the two roles she also appeared on 'The Cleaner' on A&E with Benjamin Bratt.

She's not the only ex-'Battlestar' babe to keep working. Tricia Helfer now has a steady gig on 'Dark Blue'. Katee Sackhoff just got cast on an unnamed ABC pilot (and had a memorable appearance on 'The Big Bang Theory'). Given both of their statuses on 'Battlestar' as ageless Cylons, it's even conceivable that down the road Park or Helfer will show up on the prequel series.

For those 'Lost' fans, 'Hawaii Five-0' also stars Daniel Dae Kim.

With the addition of Grace Park, are you planning on watching the remake of 'Hawaii Five-0'? Were you planning on watching it anyway?

'Lost's' Daniel Dae Kim tapped for 'Hawaii 5-0' remake

daniel_dae_kim_lost_abcCBS's new incarnation of 'Hawaii Five-0' to a huge step towards becoming a reality with one casting move. Daniel Dae Kim will be playing one of the 'Hawaii Five-0' team. The 'Lost' veteran, who is available for work because the ABC drama ends on May 23, will be a cop on 'Five-0.'

No, they're not making Steve McGarrett, the lead detective. Kim has been cast as Detective Chin Ho Kelly, the second or third guy, depending on the episode. In the original series, Kam Fong played the role, and James MacArthur as Dano was perceived more of the second guy on the team. But in today's more diverse era, Kim may have a more prominent role than Fong did.

Are you done with the TV remakes? The networks aren't

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 6th 2010 7:00PM
Do you ever wonder why TV networks spend so much time and money updating old TV shows for the modern times, even though they are almost always doomed to fail? No, it's not due to some clinical mental illness.

It's simple: they attract attention, according to an article by The New York Times' Bill Carter.

The nostalgia angle alone makes it a self-marketing giant. It's no wonder that CBS has a Hawaii Five-O rehash, NBC has a new Rockford Files and ABC is bringing Charlie's Angels back from the dead. The only problem? They usually suck.

So is there a chance any of the aforementioned might work?
