Hawaii Five-O Looking HOT!

Alex o'loughlin versus james martsers - Mick and SPike

For weeks now I have been getting more excited about Hawaii Five-O as some of my favorite stars and other well know Sci-Fi darlings have been cast in lead roles. When they cast Grace Park of Battlelstar Galactica and Daniel Dae Kim of LOST I was clapping because I know how well loved these actors are in the Sci-Fi genre and big name stars mean more fans watching, which is good for everyone. When they cast Scott Caan as Danno I was hollering yet again because I am a big fan. But the latest two additions are the best yet IMO…  William Sadler, who you may remember as Alex’s creepy Uncle on Three Rivers, but whom I will always remember as the Sheriff from Roswell (yes more Sci-Fi) will be playing Alex’s father.

AND the VERY BEST NEWS (for me at least) is the casting of another sci-fi great and someone who I am just as crazy about as Alex.. James Marsters.. aka Spike from Buffy!!!! He has also done some other awesome work in Smallville, Torchwood, and Caprica. I think the Sci-Fi crowd is going to have a hard time staying away from all this talent… yowsa!

Honestly if Alex wasn’t cast I am not sure if I would have watched cause I am not into cop shows but James Martsers would have ensured it and I have a feeling MANY fans will be drawn in by this news. He plays Steve McGarrett’s nemesis, the man who killed his father and no one plays bad like Spike… he is the “big bad” after all.

Already we are seeing a bunch of online TV review sites claiming that Hawaii Five-O is now being eagerly anticipated. Take Bob Starr for instance:

When I first heard Hawaii Five-O was getting the remake treatment I wasn’t that interested. I only vaguely remembered the original series and it was one step closer to rebooting Magnum P.I. (how sacrilegious would will that be?) in my opinion. However, I’ve begun to shift in the other direction regarding this series as more casting news comes out.

At this point it seems producers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Star TrekTransformersFringe) are trying to capture the geek community for the new show.  Marsters joins a cast that encapsulates geek programming; Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost), Jean Smart (24), and Alex O’Loughlin (Moonlight) are already on deck.  With Scott Caan on board as well suddenly Hawaii Five-O is a show I can start to get behind.

All I can say is that I lept out of my chair hooting and hollering when I found out James Marsters was cast… any day where I can see Alex AND James is a very, very good day.

Two of my favorite vampires together at last…

  3. Awesome job, as always Tiffany – just curious to see if they will also update the theme song for this generation. The original was a classic. Hope you find more pics of Alex in full dress uniform – can’t wait to see one in Navy whites with a gorgeous Hawaiian tan. OMG!!!!.

  6. YOWSA is right Tiffany! I too am a big fan of James Marsters. I think the casting for H5O has been sensational. Let’s hope this turns out to be a hit for our Alex. Thanks Tiffany.

  7. Thank you for all the update. I read your site a lot but don’t post much, but this deserves an “ATABOY” I truly love Alex and missed him so much after Moonlight.

  8. I love spike from Buffy. I am so excited for this cast. I love Lost, Buffy and of coarse Alex. This will be great.

  9. Okay so I was listening to Ballroom Blitz and I noticed that in the beginning, the guy says three names, Steve, Andy and Mick. Am I crazy or is that kinda weird seeing as Alex has played roles with these names? I think i’m just weird….

    Reply
    1. Weird is fun – who wants to be normal? That is strange seeing those names linked to Alex’s characters – they are even in the right order if you go from first-Mick then to Andy then Steve….interesting……..

  10. I myself being another old gal ( my daughter being older than Alex) I’m old not dead.
    Must say OMG he looks good in a uniform. Hope H5O has alot of beach scenes. The pix at top of page is from The Shield, love the scruff. Give me the scruff and Tattos, makes this old ticker start beating faster. Hope CBS gives this one a shot, with the cast as it is now can’t see it failing, I think summer would be better, unless they pick a day that FOOTBALL isn’t on.
    Can’t wait for my weekly fix of my ALEX.

  12. I am so thrilled about Hawaii Five-O..I really have a good feeling about it and I know it will be a success for Alex. Now they’ve added James Marsters and he was so wicked, in a good way, on Buffy..I know the fall is so far off, but knowing our Tiffany, she will keep us posted on all things Alex. My birthday is April 22, so you all know what I will be doing on the 23rd? Getting my Alex fix, with The Back-Up Plan.

  14. Much thanks Tiffany for the latest on our Alex. We can think of him as “Our” Alex….can’t we?

  15. according to next weeks’s tv. guide. CBS will announce in May if it is picked up for 2010/2011 season… I am being very positive that it will be. YES!!!!!!!!!!

  16. I love ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING Alex does, but so far, by the time we get it in the UK, it is over in the US…….Lets hope it is third time lucky for him. To hear he is working with James is AMAZING. I met him when he came to the UK and he is a lovely guy, very talented actor, great English accent in Buffy too, sometimes difficult to pull off!! Fingers crossed for H5-0 in 2010!!!

  17. Not getting my hopes up. The only one in the cast that impresses me is Alex and maybe William Sadler (better known as Death in Bill and Ted’s Bogus Adventure).

    Reply
  18. I really hope that this series will be successful. The fact that Alex would do well with the role I never for a moment doubt. I wish you great success of Alex and serials.

    1. Yasmine the pilot is filming now in Hawaii. We will find out in May some time if CBS will decide to put H5O on the Fall schedule. At that time they will start filming the rest of the episodes and it will come to our screens in Sept or Oct.

  22. I am not familiar with the two gentlemen mentioned above as I don’t watch a LOT of TV…just anything with Alex and 1/2 dozen others. There is too much junky reality tV and WAY too many CSI stuff. How many ways can you off someone and have i still be interesting???? Hope they start dropping off. I am really positive about Hawaii Five0 and Alex….I really and truly think this will be the BIG one for him. MEANWHILE, GET OUT THERE WITH ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND WATCH BACK UP PLAN APRIL 23RD!!! PASS IT ON….ITS A LONG TIME UNTIL THE FALL! A FOREVER ALEX FAN THANKS TIFFANY, YOU ARE THE GREATEST.

  26. Well… hope for Alex this will work out for him after two times cancelled series. He works hard on it and deserves it too. Here in the Netherlands we haven’t the channel CBS, but will follow Alex everywhere I can! If the series will be picked up then maybe about a year or so we can see Hawaii Five-O here too.Wish Alex all the luck he needs. Thanx Tiffanny for keeping us updated….
