Daniel Dae Kim To Get Lost In ‘Hawaii Five-O’

kim hawai five o Daniel Dae Kim To Get Lost In Hawaii Five O

With the series finale of Lost soon approaching, many of the cast are looking for what’s next. While Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly have chosen to quit show business, Daniel Dae Kim had demonstrated that he has no interest in leaving the wonderful filming location of Hawaii, as he’s just been cast in one of the leading roles for CBS’ remake of Hawaii Five-O.

Playing the role of Chin Ho Kelly, Kim is the first Lost cast member to sign on for a new pilot. With only four episodes of Lost left to film and Hawaii Five-O being filmed on the same island, looks like Mr. Kim is sitting pretty.

While I’m none too fond of Hawaii Five-O and not really excited about another police show on television – even if it is set in Hawaii – this one might just make it. As we previously reported, Fringe and Star Trek geniuses Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are behind this remake, with CSI:NY exec Peter Lenkov producing.

When I think of all the shows they could remake for television, I first think “Don’t remake any!” and then some shows actually come to mind. Sadly, none of them are Hawaii Five-O. Didn’t we learn everything we need from the Miami Vice movie? [EDITOR'S NOTE: Kofi Outlaw likes the Miami Vice movie!]

With Lost ending, do you think Daniel Dae Kim will have another hit on his hands with Hawaii Five-O? Can this new police show make it amongst all the rest?

If the series gets picked up (which it probably will), you can set your DVR’s to catch Hawaii Five-O this fall on CBS.

  1. “BOOK HIM DANO” Hell ya can't wait! I'm not much for T.V. cop shows but growing up in the 70's this was a kick-ass show. Jack Lord was so cool, anyway love it- like it -wwant more of it

  2. you know what? i wonder how they would go about – if they will go for an all out, funny, witty, 70's show with kick ass action (car chases especially!) – i'm betting a lot of people would like it since they miss that kind of show. anyone who was brought up on the A-TEAM miss it, and hawaii 5-0, as well as magnum P.I. for instance – pure escapist tv serie. enough with the dark, realistic, somber police cop shows we have now days – give us the good ol' happy 70's :)
    and btw – 'burn notice' is doing some neat stuff in that direction…

  3. Alex O' Loughlin is not as suave, cool or charismatic as Jack Lord. A good actor, but not spectacular by any stretch. No doubt, they will show him bare chested and in short Hawaiian shirts so that should boost ratings. This will be Miami Vice style so don't expect to see escapist fare.

  4. Agreed dragonet, but it won't happen. The shows were cooler and escapism was the reason for watching TV, but this is going to be more Miami Vice.

  5. Daniel Dae Kim looks like a good choice for Chin Ho Kelly. However I don't see Alex O'Loughlin as McGarrett. O'Loughlin may be better as the second in command Dan Williams or as another member of the team – McLoughlin is a just a little young to play the leader of the team.

    You need someone who looks like they've had the experience the leader of an elite police force needs (especially one who makes the bad guys a little fearful of him). You need someone in his late 30s or 40s to make it work.

  6. Hawaiian women are so beautiful but yeah, but this time expect to see huge intimidating Somoan dudes and Asian gangs and stuff. I think the show could work though, like most places have changed, Hawaii,although a beautiful place, is definitely different now than it was in the 60's and 70's. I hope the show does well.
