CBS Studios International spotlights Hawaii Five-0′s Alex O’Loughlin and Daniel Dae Kim

November 3rd, 2013 by

Press from all over the world was hosted by CBS Studio International at a three day event in in Los Angles. This annual event highlighted the CBS television stars to the international press. Alex O’Loughlin and Daniel Dae Kim were on hand to answer questions about Hawaii Five-0.

Daniel has loved the Lost reunions that have been going on recently on Hawaii Five-0, referring to recent appearances by Terry O’Quinn, Jorge Garcia and Henry Ian Cusick who have all appeared in Season 4. Spoiler Alert #1 – He teased that there may be a love interest in Chin’s future later this season.

The show’s star, Alex O’Loughlin, took the opportunity to thank fans, saying “without the fans, we’d be nothing – I’d be a carpenter!” He also clarified statements he made in a recent Associated Press interview. “It’s not my job, it’s my life!” he said, referring to being misquoted and portrayed as ungrateful in the article. During the panel, he took a call and put it on speaker phone. On the other end, a telemarketer offered a “free cruise” for answering a survey, to which O’Louglin responded by asking the room full of reporters, “Do we want to do this?” He is quite the jokester!

Spoiler Alert #2 -  according to O’Loughlin, Mama McGarrett will come back into Steve’s life but disappear once again. This will have a profound psychological effect on him. It is also possible that McGarrett is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

For those lucky enough to see him in person, O’Loughlin offers up this tip about taking his photo, “Ask first, I’ll say yes”. Good to know.

Here are some photos of the panel from the CBS Studios International event.

Ride the Halloween party bus with Five-0! (Spoilers)

October 31st, 2013 by
Steve & Danny ride the party bus

If the misty and remote field of seemingly abandoned cars isn’t spooky enough, Steve and Danny only have to wait for the bass-thumping party shuttle bus to roll up and unload a gaggle of boozed-up Halloween partiers. Offered a ride to the party, our intrepid heroes are soon up to their ankles in empty liquor bottles and stray undies; odds are, they’re going to find a lot more waiting for them at the end of the trip!

Kupouli ‘la airs Friday, November 1st at 9:00pm ET/PT on CBS. Five-0 and zombies! How can you resist?

 

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 “Kupouli ‘la”

October 31st, 2013 by

If you think that you will still be hungry for the living dead after Halloween, then this weeks episode of Hawaii Five-0 has you covered.

Director Jon Terlesky is no stranger to scary Hollywood productions.  He appeared in the the B-movie horror flick Chopping Mall.  He has also acquired a pretty impressive resume as a director, having been the man calling the shots on recent hits Castle and Revenge. He even directed Terry O’Quinn in the short lived 666 Park Avenue.

Writer David Wolkove adds his touch to another spooky Halloween episode.  He also co-wrote the Halloween episode in Season 3 “Mohai”.

There are some notable actors returning to the Hawaii Five-0 cast. Rumer Willis reprises her roll as Max Bergman’s girlfriend, Sabrina. Interestingly, she is now listed as a recurring cast member.  Popular character actor DJ Qualls (Supernatural, Legit) visits the show, as does veteran actor Corbin Bersen.

Hawaii born and raised, Keo Woolford, returns as Sgt. James Chang. I remember when I first saw him in the Season 2 premiere.  His character was one that I would like to see more of – similar to Dennis Chun’s character, Duke. This will be Woolford’s third Hawaii Five-0 appearance.

October 30th, 2013 by

Finally had time to get the podcast uploaded!  Mike Buck of AM 690 KHNR and I discussed “Kupu’eu”, talked about Billy’s departure, and Alex’s future after Hawaii Five-0.   Give it a listen:  Officer 808 on the Mike Buck Show, October 28, 2013 for “Kupu’eu”.

Alex O’Loughlin awarded the Breakthrough Award from AIF

October 25th, 2013 by

The Hollywood spotlight shone on Aussies last night, as Alex O’Loughlin was awarded one of three Breaktrough Awards during the second annual Australians in Film Awards dinner. Other recipients this year were Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook) and Sullivan Stapleton (Strike Back and 300: Rise of an Empire). Australians in Film is an industry guild for Australian filmmakers and performers in the United States.

Now in his fourth year with Hawaii Five-0, which airs in multiple countries around the world, we can most certainly say that Alex has broken through and made it.

Congratulations on your award!

Alex ponders life after Hawaii Five-0

October 25th, 2013 by

Check out this short interview given to AP writer Ryan Pearson last night in Los Angeles at the Australians in Film dinner.

 


 

Alex O’Loughlin Ponders Future on ‘Hawaii Five-0′

Alex O’Loughlin says he’s signed up for two more seasons of “Hawaii Five-0″ but is looking forward to a career beyond the hit TV series.

The 38-year-old actor plays policeman Steve McGarrett on the CBS series, now in its fourth season. He said the intense workload and shooting schedule had kept him out of other potential projects.

“Like I read Doug Liman’s script, ‘Everest,’ which he’s about to start directing — it’s amazing and it’s invigorating. But it’s also heartbreaking at the same time because it feels so far away from me at the moment,” O’Loughlin said at the Australians in Film awards dinner Thursday night. “I’ve never played one character for this long. And it’s network TV, too, so it comes with its own set of challenges from the artist’s perspective. But I’m very lucky. My kids will get to go to good schools, we all eat organic food, and I live in Hawaii.”

The actor noted that the show — a reimagining of the 1970s series starring Jack Lord — had overcome a number of hurdles to remain consistently highly rated.

“I mean, we’ve had cast troubles. I got really hurt and had to go and sort myself out in the second season. We’ve had injuries, we’ve had all sorts of things. It just keeps going,” he said. “We can’t seem to kill it. So I guess it’s going to stick around for a while.”

As for how long he’ll stick around: “At the moment I can’t imagine working any longer than tomorrow. Because there’s just so much work. But we’ll see, we’ll see. I want to do other things sooner rather than later.”

Looks like viewers still concerned about Hawaii Five-0′s move to Friday nights can rest a little easier. Based on the latest press release, CBS is pleased with the performance of its new Friday night lineup.

 


CBS FRIDAY POSTING ACROSS-THE-BOARD GROWTH WITH SUCCESSFUL NEW “HAWAII FIVE-0″ AND “BLUE BLOODS” 9:00-11:00 PM CRIME BLOCK CBS Ratings Extra…

Both Series Notching Time Period Increases in Viewers and Key Demos

“Five-0″ Also Up in Viewers Over its Year-Ago Monday Performance

CBS’s Friday lineup is posting across-the-board growth paced by its new 9:00-11:00 PM crime block of HAWAII FIVE-0 and BLUE BLOODS, according to Nielsen most current ratings through the first three weeks of the season.

At 9:00 PM, the newly relocated HAWAII FIVE-0 has boosted the year-ago time period by +27% in viewers (10.54 from 8.28m), +64% in adults 18-49 (1.8 from 1.1) and +63% in adults 25-54 (2.6 from 1.6). HAWAII FIVE-0 is also up +14% in viewers versus its year ago Monday average (from 9.25m).

At 10:00 PM, BLUE BLOODS is posting year-to-year growth of +8% in both viewers (12.40m from 11.44m) and adults 25-54 (2.6 from 2.4) and +13% in adults 18-49 (1.8 from 1.6).

At 8:00 PM, UNDERCOVER BOSS is winning its time period in viewers (8.24m) and adults 25-54 (2.1).

Compared to Friday last year, CBS is up +9% in viewers (10.39m from 9.57m), +21% in adults 18-49 (1.7 from 1.4) and +25% in adults 25-54 (2.5 from 2.0).

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 – “Kupu’eu”

October 23rd, 2013 by

Looks like we are in for a ride on the emotional roller coaster in this week’s episode.  If you haven’t seen the previews yet, there may be spoilers below.

Here is what we know about this episode so far:

  • the title of the episode loosely translates to “Fallen Hero”.
  • Peter Lenkov tweeted a teaser picture from the editing room of McGarrett and other Navy personnel in their dress white uniforms looking somber and saluting.
  • Terry O’Quinn also returns as Joe White.

We see Catherine in a gunfight and she takes a bullet.  Does the title refer to her?  Or could it be that our fallen hero is Joe White? Although, if you notice, there is another character listed with the last name of Harrington. Could that be Billy’s father? Was he in the Navy? Would a death in his family bring him and Cath closer together?

Regardless of who the fallen hero may be, you can be sure that Alex O’Loughlin will shine in this episode. He is outstanding in portraying McGarrett’s heartbreak and emotional turmoil.

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 – “A ia la aku”

October 16th, 2013 by

Looks like the theme for this week’s episode is relationships.

Autumn Reeser returns as Danny’s love interest Gabby. Will Danny finally say the “L” word to her? Based on the preview clip, we know that Danny does not have much good to say about marriage.

After last week’s episode, it was quite obvious that McGarrett is starting to have doubts about Cath working with her old flame, Billy. With both Michelle Borth (Cath) and Justin Bruening (Billy) in this episode, I suspect McGarrett will be feeling further insecurity. I kind of like this vulnerable side of him.

Interesting note – the actor that plays the best man in this episode, Raleigh Craighead, was also the stunt man for Robbie Amell who played Billy Keats in Season 3 Episode 4 “Popilikia”.
