Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s entertainment reporter gave a detailed rundown in Sunday’s Star-Advertiser.  Alex O’Loughlin was quoted:

O’Loughlin offered an array of tips as he waxed poetic about his days as a young actor, which included background work on the Tom Cruise movie “Mission: Impossible II.”

Everything you do is an experience you can draw upon for a role, he said. Never mind that the project you’re in isn’t good; shine as bright as you can. And find the truth.

“We are either in the truth or we’re not,” O’Loughlin said. “The truth is difficult to get to. This conversation we are having is the truth. We get to this place and the cameras are rolling, we’re great.”

The Australian actor underscored the sincerity of the show’s effort to encourage local actors with a slight departure from the panel’s mantra of preparation. He wanted the local actors to know why he wants to inspire them: He feels welcome in Hawaii.


One more post of the Hilton shooting from @AlohaBruce, featuring Hapa

Just one more…

Catch the video on Bruce’s facebook page.  You’ll notice the emcee introduce musicians on stage- that’s the local duo “Hapa”, who’s debut album was extremely popular in the 90′s.  They’re still a popular group and have released quit a few albums.  They begin playing “Olinda Road” from their debut album (but they stop after a few chords, presumably because the camera moves to the Five-0 team).

Catch the whole song here:

The ladies of O’Laughing Press transcribe the GQ Style article

Making their optometrists proud

The ladies of O’Laughing Press will certainly make their optometrists proud…they transcribed the entire Alex O’Loughlin GQ Style interview!   The interview by Brendan Shanahan is probably one of the best I’ve read on any of the Five-0 cast.  It’s candid, raw, honest and fair.  I’ve been so used to seeing him as Steve McGarrett, that listening to the real Alex O’Loughlin come out makes for a fascinating read.  He showed a lot of vulnerability and a lot of emotion, which is a far departure from the typical E! or Entertainment Tonight interviews that we’ve seen before.

This paragraph stood out:

“Most people on this island are watching the show. So everywhere I go, people know who I am. But the thing about it is that … it’s Hawaii. And Hawaiian people are rad. They’re a lot like Aussies, very grounded and laidback and really, really sweet. There’s a lot of ‘Aloha’ here, a lot of generosity of spirit. People aren’t trying to pick a piece of you away when they come up to get a photograph, they’re just really happy to see you. Sometimes I prefer to stay at the house, but for the most part, it’s part of the gig and it’s probably the best place on earth to get used to it.”

I’ve heard him compliment the people of Hawaii many times, and it just makes me happy to hear that he holds us locals in such a sincere regard… Aloha Alex!

So fans, put away your microscopes and enjoy the article in its entirety on the O’Laughing Press blog!

Life On The Set of Hawaii Five-0 with Gabriella Sheindlin

Life On The Set of Hawaii Five-0 with Gabriella Sheindlin

At the suggestion of a friend, bikini model and fitness competitor Gabriella Sheindlin called Hawaii Five-0 casting for any available part.  The casting director immediately offered her a walk on role for the Hilton Hawaiian Village scene that was filmed last week.  Gabriella spent a few minutes chatting with me about her experience on set.

Tell me a little about yourself…
I started in bikini competition and won overall in the Paradise Cup.  I recently started modeling again,  did a shoot with a photographer and started a file on Model Mayhem.  Rob the photographer pretty much launched everything that’s going on now!

How’d you get involved with Five-0?
A friend of mine told me about casting for the show.  I walked in, filled out some papers, and right there they told me they needed a waitress.

Wait…you just walked right in and gave you the part?!?!  How lucky is that?  So you got to chat with the cast for a bit in between scenes?
We [the extras] were there before hand, and when Alex O’Loughlin walked in, he winked at me said “Hi.”  Another actress asked if I was starstruck…at the time I told her no, but I was a little nervous.  I guess it’s good that I didn’t watch the show cause I didn’t know how big the stars were.  I watched the show after, and realized they were all…legitimate! [laughing]

Allright so I watched the behind the scenes clips…I see you waiting on tables, but what exactly are you background actors talking about?  Are you actually saying anything?
Hah!  One of the actors was telling me “This is terrible! What are you doing?!?”  I was just supposed to ask if things were ok.  Once, I grabbed a plate from a table and served it to another table…but I don’t think anyone’s gonna notice that!

Is that all you got to do that night?  Wait on tables?
They asked me to stick around for the next scene, for the beach bar and luau.  You might see me dancing there.  Basically it went well, and I think they want me back.  It was my first time on camera, and somehow I was placed in the forefront of the scene.  As the night went on, I felt more confident.

There was a pretty huge crowd building up that night, was that a distraction?
There was a lady that kept on yelling at Alex during the filming…oh and later during the luau scene a drunk lady ran through!

What is in the future in acting for you?
I’ve been in contact with the people from Cougar Town, and they’re supposed to let me know if they need me.

Well good luck Gabriella!

You’ll see Gabriella in the foreground of @AlohaBruce’s BTS video clips. Gabriella appears at about the 15 second mark in the first clip and the 3:00 mark in the second.

A local resident of Liliha saw Five-o filming and submitted this Undercover Special Agent report:

I live in the neighborhood and saw some of the filming.  Alex and Diddy were suited up in bullet proof vests and about to enter a house.  It looked like they were rehearsing the scene before filming started.  Alex was saying “I can come from this direction, and you can come from this direction.”  It was so exciting!!! [giggling]

If you want more Diddy, check out KGMB’s report (thanks to @Slash_Goggles):

Side note:  Yes, I know Snoopy Dogg Dog coined the whole “izzle” slang, so no need to correct me. :P
