Yes, this little tidbit is now being covered by lots of gossip and entertainment sites. TVGuide is claiming that he will miss at least one episode while he gets treatment for a prescription medication problem after a prior shoulder injury during 5-0 filming.
His fans suspected something was amiss and guess we know what it was. We wish him well and hope he takes time to put his health and wellness first and foremost. We certainly want to see Alex on our screens but not the gaunt sickly version we have seen of late. Getter better soon!
From the Star Advertiser:
“Alex is taking a short break to receive supervised treatment for prescription pain medication due to a recent shoulder injury,” said a statement from Rachael Wesolowski, one of O’Loughlin’s representatives.
“We respect and support Alex’s decision,” CBS Studios, which produces the series, said in a statement. “Everyone at CBS Television Studios and ‘Hawaii Five-0′ wishes him well and we look forward to his return.”
