Today in Waikiki, the 9th annual Surf4Hugs event was attended by Hawaii Five-0 stars Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan. Both actors are avid surfers and they threw their star power behind the event designed to allow some fun in the sun for children with life threatening illness.

An update of the August schedule for your viewing pleasure:
Sunday, August 5: “Ma’ema’e” (Clean) A volleyball coach is murdered and McGarrett and Fryer go toe-to-toe as the head of Internal Affairs places Kono in a precarious position.
Monday, August 6: “Ka Hakaka Maika’i” (The Good Fight) When McGarrett injures an innocent charity fight participant, being the gentleman he is, there’s no choice but to jump into the ring and face off against Chuck Lidell himself. Now, I’m not a fight fan, but I’m more than willing to enjoy the resulting half-clothed Steve. Am I right, ladies?
Monday, August 13: “Kūpale” (Defender) This episode provides a bit of Hawaiian history, the return of Al Harrington, and an appearance by Apolo Ohno as a low level loser. Scantily clad men run around brandishing spears, but sadly, none of the near-naked individuals are members of our Five-0 team.

Monday, August 20: ”Lekio” (Radio) Although some may remember this episode as the one in which Dennis Miller is blown into little bits of shark chum, it’s real worth is in James Caan’s performance as Tony Archer. I’m pretty sure that most Hawaii Five-0 fans fell in love with the grizzled ex-detective when he managed to insinuate himself smack dab into the middle of the Steve-Danno bromance. I don’t know about you, but I sure hope that Peter Lenkov brings the senior Caan back for Season 3.

Alex O’Loughlin discusses living in the islands and character development on Hawaii Five-0. Did he say “Up in my grill”?

Since the 2012 Summer TCAs are the time that networks trot out their upcoming new Fall shows, there was no Hawaii Five-0 panel presented on Sunday. Luckily for fans, three of the series’ stars showed up for the after-party and hung around long enough to pose for photographers. With almost two months before Season 3 premieres, it’s nice that fans have these images of Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, and Masi Oka, to enjoy in the meantime.
A big thanks to Mizzoh at AOLRocks for the images. Her complete gallery can be seen here.

Fans of the actors who make up the bromantic duo of Steve McGarrett and Danny Williams on Hawaii Five-0, enjoyed a few fun behind-the-scenes moments with the two on Sunday, July 29th. The pair were in Beverly Hills for the 2012 Summer TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, and thanks to social media, we didn’t have long to wait for some updates. Alex O’Loughlin (McGarrett,) and Scott Caan (Danno) exhibited why their onscreen chemistry is so strong: the pair genuinely like each other in real life.
O’Loughlin’s longtime followers know that he’s quite the cut-up and he didn’t let them down this time. Fans had an opportunity to send questions to CBS in advance of the event, and @graciemonkey was lucky enough to have her tweet to executive producer Peter Lenkov chosen: “The McDanno bromance is so cute, are you surprised by how much chemistry Alex & Scott have on & off screen? ” The inquiry was intercepted by Alex who joked, “I know this question was for Peter but I am going to answer it. Our chemistry is as strong as it is because we are deeply attracted to one another in real life.” The silliness continued when the two hit the CBS photo booth.

It’s been an exciting week for Hawaii Five-0 fans, with word of Ed Asner in Hawaii, Carlos Bernard (“24″) joining the show for an unspecified number of episodes, and a return visit by Mary McGarrett. To top it off, CBS has announced that Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan will join Peter Lenkov for the TCA Annual Summer Stars Party on Sunday, July 29th. Since the Television Critics Association events concentrate on introducing new shows to the industry players, Hawaii Five-0 isn’t scheduled to present a panel, but the fact that Alex and Scott are attending the party gives hope for interviews and pictures.
Updated re-broadcast schedule:
Saturday, July 28 (special time) : “Mea Makamae” (Treasure) Bare-chested Steve diving for sunken treasure and an appearance by Patty Duke. See our review here.
Monday, July 30: “I Helu Pū” (The Reckoning) In this episode we get the cast dressed to the nines in formal-wear, Danny and Steven trying to outbid each other at an auction, and the end of the line for Lori Weston.
Monday, August 6: ”Ma’ema’e” (Clean) A volleyball coach is murdered and McGarrett and Fryer go toe-to-toe as the head of Internal Affairs places Kono in a precarious position.
Monday, August 13: “Kūpale” (Defender) This episode provides a bit of Hawaiian history, along with Apolo Ohno as a low level loser. Scantily clad men run around brandishing spears, but sadly, none of the near-naked individuals are members of our Five-0 team.

Confirming our suspicions of a few weeks ago, William Keck reports that Taryn Manning will be returning to Hawaii Five-0 to reprise her role of Mary McGarrett. At the end of last season, Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) had just discovered that the mother he’d believed to be dead for many years, was very much alive, setting up the story line for some intense family drama in Season 3.
From TV Guide
Steve McGarrett’s happy family reunion is expanding. With his presumed dead mother Doris returning in Hawaii Five-0‘s season premiere (with Chicago Hope vet Christine Lahti in the role), sister Mary Ann won’t be far behind.
In an episode slated to air later this fall, actress Taryn Manningwill return to the islands as Steve’s kid sis to see for her own eyes that mama McG is in fact among the living. I’m hearing that both Steve and Mary Ann will have lots of questions for their mother, who faked her own death 20 years earlier.
Manning was originally announced as a series regular when the series premiered in 2010, but for story reasons the character was sent back to the mainland. She did, however, reprise the role in one Season 2 episode.
Might there be more McGarrett children out there? That remains to be seen. Lahti tells me she’s not quite sure what Doris was up to during her missing years. And online speculators continue to guess that Steve’s nemesis Wo-Fat may turn out to be Steve’s half-brother. Wouldn’t that be a twist?

I need some Hawaii Five-0 spoilers! — Will
ADAM: Like sharks? What about pirates? Well, today’s your lucky day! I hear both will figure largely in an episode about dangerous boat-jackings and a Danno-McGarrett deep-sea fishing trip that goes awry.
One last teaser directly from the show’s executive producer:
