The other five presenters announced Wednesday are: Bryan Cranston ('Breaking Bad'), Scott Caan ('Hawaii Five-0'), Claire Danes ('Homeland'), Kerry Washington ('Scandal') and Jason O'Mara ('Terra Nova').

Scott Caan Will Be Danno in New 'Hawaii Five-O'

scott_caan_into_the_blue_oceanThe 'Hawaii Five-O' pilot just got a bit more interesting. Tough guy actor Scott Caan has been cast as Danno, joining Alex O'Loughlin as Steve McGarrett. What makes it interesting is that in the original series, McGarrett was the older member of the squad, the leader based on experience if not seniority. Danny Williams was a younger guy, with McGarrett as sort of his mentor.

O'Loughlin and Caan are the same age. That would mean that they'll be more like partners. Like Sam and Callen on 'NCIS: Los Angeles,' which is reminiscent of 'Starsky and Hutch.'

Well, there's nothing wrong with that, but it's not exactly the original, is it? It's a new version of 'Hawaii Five-O' and, apparently, that's the point. Like the updated 'Star Trek' movie, which coincidentally, was written by the same guys, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who are doing the pilot.

So while this show will focus on an elite branch of the Hawaii State Police with McGarrett and Danno, it's not the same old CBS franchise.

Scott CaanActor Scott Caan has booked the coveted role of Danny "Danno" Williams on the CBS reboot of 'Hawaii Five-O,' according to the Hollywood Reporter.

In the updated version, Williams heads to Hawaii to be closer to his 7-year-old daughter following a nasty divorce from his wife. There, he partners with Steve McGarrett, played by star Alex O'Loughlin.

The role was originated by James McCarthur in 1968.

Due to his commitment to 'Entourage,' Caan will only appear as a guest star in the pilot, but will become a series regular should the show get picked up by CBS.
