H50 Summer Scanner – August 2, 2014

August 2nd, 2014 by

 

I had the great pleasure of attending San Diego Comic Con on behalf of Hawaii Five-0 Undercover this past weekend. SDCC, as it is commonly know, is a mecca for all things entertainment – from TV and movies, to comics and video games. At this year’s SDCC, CBS had a much smaller presence than past years. Hawaii Five-0 has not been featured there since it’s first season, however executive producing duo, Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman did attend to promote their new show, Scorpion.

Scorpion features super geniuses brought together to fight terrorists and other miscreants. The team will be headed up by Robert Patrick of True Blood, as well as the short lived Hawaii-filmed, The Last Resort. Since Scorpion will also air on CBS, Orci and Kurtzman were asked about a crossover with Hawaii Five-0.

“Oh wow, I hadn’t even thought of that! I think it’s a great idea,”  Kurtzman told Nerdist.  Orci emphatically jumped in, “Why not? Done!”

Scorpion premieres Sept. 22, 2-14. Check out the preview released at SDCC below.

 

Alex Kurtzman will also be directing a major motion picture for Universal. Kurtzman has paired up with Chris Morgan to create a “cinematic universe” centered around The Mummy reboot. Orci and Kurtzman worked on the script for the new film along with Jon Spaihts. Kurtzman is also set to direct the Spiderman spin-off Venom while Orci will be sitting in the directors chair for Star Trek 3. The Mummy is set to be released April 22, 2016. With all the future projects this duo has going on, you can bet they will be staples at SDCC for years to come.

Side note – Fans of Kono and Adam will be please to know that Ian Anthony Dale tweeted this week that he is back in Hawaii filming Hawaii Five-0. Dale will be appearing in episode 3 this season. No word (yet) on if he will be seen later in the season.

Meet Hawaii Five-0′s newest member

July 16th, 2014 by

The name of Hawaii Five-0’s newest cast member has been revealed in a TV Guide exclusive. Much in demand actress Amanda Setton has been cast to play trainee to medical examiner Max Bergman (Masi Oka.) The exotic beauty was most recently seen on the Robin Williams’ comedy The Crazy Ones, and prior to that, played pushy office assistant, Shauna Dicanio on Fox’s The Mindy Project.

Earlier this month TV Guide reported Season 5 would bring a new love interest to Five-0 boss Steve McGarrett, and since Max already has a girlfriend (played by Willis-Moore offspring Rumer Willis,) could it be that Setton’s character Dr. Mindy Shaw, will fill the slot left by Michelle Borth?   Many fans were upset at the announcement that Borth’s Catherine Rollins was being written off the show, so any new love interest will be met with much skepticism from many, particularly after we witnessed a heart-broken McGarrett in tears upon hearing Cath was staying in Afghanistan.

 We here at 50undercover wish Amanda the best of luck, both in her role and in her reception from the fans.  Unfortunately, female actors cast on the show (other than original member, Grace Park) haven’t always been met with wholesale acceptance from some on social media.  Let’s make this a positive experience and show Amanda the aloha spirit!

Many viewers thought that the fourth season of the CBS show was better than the previous two, so you’ll want to add this one to your collection.  In addition to behind the scenes features, the gag reel featuring a very funny Alex O’Loughlin, Grace Park, Scott Caan, and Daniel Dae Kim, is always one of the high points of the set, and new cast member Chi McBride should add a few laughs.

Monday brings Ian Anthony Dale on Murder in the First

June 9th, 2014 by

Ian Anthony Dale plays the reluctant head of the local Yakuza on Hawaii Five-0, but for the summer at least, he’s on the other side of the law. Dale’s dramatic portrayal of Adam Noshimuri won the heart not only of Grace Park as Kono Kalakaua on the island-based show, but those of many viewers as well.

Concentrating on one murder over the course of the 10-episode arc, the series from the legendary Steven Boccho, begins airing Monday June 9th on TNT 10/9c. Be sure to check it out and support Ian!

Grace Park receives honor from Asian Hall of Fame

June 1st, 2014 by

On May 31, 2014, actress Grace Park was inducted into the Asian Hall of Fame at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle, Washington.  Grace was in good company with fellow inductees including former Presidential Cabinet member Norm Mineta, Olympic gold medalist Nathan Adrian, and Manu Tuiasosopo of San Francisco 49ers fame.

The Asian Hall of Fame “honors distinguished individuals of Asian Pacific descent whose personal achievements have contributed to the American experience.”  In the field of entertainment with its noticeable scarcity of Asians, Ms. Park’s 14 year career is quite an achievement.

Born in Los Angeles, but raised in Vancouver, Canada, Ms. Park first became known to many Americans when she played two lead roles on Battlestar Galactica.  Her beauty and talent caught the eyes of the right people when it was time to cast the CBS reimagining of Hawaii Five-0, where she’s still going strong as team member Kono Kalakaua.

To read Grace’s  previous comments on her Korean heritage and receiving this honor, you can check out our previous blog. http://www.50undercover.com/2014/02/13/grace-park-to-be-inducted-into-the-asian-hall-of-fame/

Nathan Adrian tweeted "Straight cheesin' with Grace Park from Hawaii 5-0."

H50 Summer Scanner – May 21, 2014

May 21st, 2014 by

We’re introducing a new feature to help Hawaii Five-0 fans get through the summer months, and here’s our first edition of the H50 Summer Scanner.  Our aim is to give you recaps of Five-0 related happenings, and we hope you enjoy it.

Two Hawaii Five-0 favourites have moved on from the island (for the time being).

Will Yun Lee (Hawaii Five-0‘s bad guy with a heart, Sang Min) found success as bodyguard Harada in last summer’s action blockbuster The Wolverine (starring Hugh Jackman). He also appeared in the recently cancelled Intelligence starring Lost alum Josh Holloway. But never fear because you can catch him this summer in HBO’s True Blood. Lee will have a recurring role as an urban cowboy bent on revenge. You can bet that this role will see Lee kicking some undead butt when True Blood‘s final season  airs on June 22nd, 2014.

Kono’s true love Adam was only seen for a short time this season but actor Ian Anthony Dale is not taking a break. He plays series regular Lieutenant Jim Koto in TNT’s Murder in the First from NYPD Blue and Hill Street Blues creator Steven Bochco. The series will give viewers an inside look at the workings of the justice system. Taye Tiggs (of Private Practice) also stars. Murder in the First premiers June 9th, 2014 at 10/9C. Check out the trailer below.
