"Lost's" Daniel Dae Kim is staying in Hawaii with a lead role on CBS' "Hawaii Five-0" remake. In CBS' updated take on the classic cop series, from CBS Studios, Kim will play Detective Chin Ho Kelly, a role played in the original series by Kam Fong. The part of Detective Steve McGarrett has not yet been cast, though "Moonlight" star Alex O'Loughlin continues to be in talks for it. The new "Hawaii Five-0" hails from hot feature writers and "Fringe" co-creators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and "CSI: NY" executive producer/co-showrunner Peter Lenkov.
i am on the fence about this..most tv retreads have sucked in a way that black holes envy..however Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci don't suck or at least they haven't sucked YET...and i like the idea of always having a show in production in Hawaii - keeps a bunch of folks working and shows off a nice locale. I'm a big fan of DDK and I seriously doubt he will be playing what was basically a side kick, but have nearly no use for Alex O'Loughlin, then again i'm not exactly sure of who WOULD be good enough to fill Jack's shoes.
any thoughts and wishes?
