Lost favorite Terry O’Quinn will be heading to familiar territory when he joins Hawaii Five-0 later this year: not only will he be returning to Lost’s filming locale, he’ll be reuniting with fellow cast-mate, Daniel Dae Kim.

O’Quinn will be playing a Navy Lt. Commander and Vietnam veteran who trained Lt. McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) in Colorado. O’Quinn’s character may have information on the murderer of McGarrett’s father, who served with him on his tour of duty. The father, not the murderer.

It’s not known how many episodes will feature O’Quinn, though the role is currently set as “recurring”. The veteran actor was cast in Mark Cherry’s latest pilot, Hallelujah, but the project wasn’t picked up for a series. O’Quinn’s only role since the 2010 closure of Lost was the Lifetime movie Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story in January.

Terry O’Quinn played the mysterious and morally dubious John Locke for all six seasons of Lost. The character’s secretive plotting and unpredictable behavior made him a quick favorite of fans. His performance in the second season earned him an Emmy award for Best Supporting Actor. Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Detective Chin Ho Kelly on Hawaii Five-0, was also a Lost star for its entire run.

Hawaii Five-O has been a surprise hit in its freshman season on CBS. With an average of 12 million viewers an episode, the remake of the cop show classic is one of the most-watched dramas on television, and according to Screen Rant’s Kevin Yeoman, it’s pretty okay (which is more than can be said for some higher-rated shows). The second season was ordered last month and should premiere in the fall.

O’Quinn is one of the additional actors alluded to by executive producer Peter Lenkov, who is a former Lost crew member himself.  With Season 1′s cliffhanger ending and the scant info available upon O’Quinn’s casting, observant readers will be able to deduce that a certain police officer won’t stay shackled for long.


Hawaii Five-0 will return to CBS this fall.

  1. And let’s not forget O’Quinn’s wonderful job on Millennium.

    Awesome news that we’ll get to see him on what’s turned out to be a wonderful show.

  2. That’s perfect casting, love O’Quinn.

  3. I’m rather surprised that more of the Lost folks haven’t shown up on the series. Hugo,Fox,and even Holloway could fit well.

  4. The ORIGINAL Stepfather, very cool. Always good to watch him work.

  5. This show sucks so much. They are trying to save it with guest stars , but it won’t help. The cast of the show is terrible. Here in Australia loses the time slot each Sunday, even a Castle repeat is able to beat Hawaii 50. Channel 10 messed up buying it.
    Terry was great in lost. But Lost was fantastic , here was a HUGE hit. But Hawaii is doing terrible here and I read in the States the finale only got 9 million viewers. Ouch.

    • Dont think you’re watching same show as me. Here in England we think the show is brilliant, I used to watch the old version, and this is much better. True to the time we now live in, but I agree that some shows which
      the UK buys in are terrible quite a few of them fron aussie land. Won’t hear a bad word bout 5 0.
