Brothers reunite!

Hawaii Five-0 regular, Andy Lawrence, recently brought his real life bro on the set of his TV show, and Joey hinted that he may be making a special appearance. Today, the veteran actor shared this message alongside their family selfie, “Something’s cooking on the #island stay tuned selfie @andrewlawrence.”

I’ve been a fan of the Lawrence Brothers since their Disney days (Matthew Lawrence too). I know they’ll kill it on the show! Their acting talent is out of this world.

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, The Fosters and Hawaii Five-0!

1 |Orphan Black fans, are you missing Felix something fierce? Isn’t it weird that he’s been off-screen for so many episodes during the show’s final run?

2 | Does Once Upon a Time‘s “new Cinderella” sort of scream, “We realized we had no good fairy tale characters left to make Henry’s baby mama”?

3 | With the brutal assaults on Miriam, Grandma Horne and Becky, was this week’s Twin Peaks especially Violence Against Women-y, to the point of being repulsive?

4 | Did Game of Thrones Ed SheeranEd Sheeran’s Game of Thrones cameo yank you right out of the magic of Westeros? And didn’t Sam’s big discovery that Dragonstone sits on a mountain of dragonglass feel like a too-easy solution to the looming White Walker problem?

5 |Doctor Who fans, did the mixed reaction to Jodie Whittaker’s casting as the first female Doctor turn you off from ever reading another Internet comments section again?

6 |Was the most disturbing thing in The Strain‘s season premiere how horribly chipper the PSA spokesperson was?

7 | Is American Ninja Warrior‘s new Rail Runner obstacle, while fun and challenging, a bit imperfectly designed? On top of all else, should one really have to worry about the handlebars going crooked?

8 | When did Casual‘s Valerie become so self-absorbed? And at what point is she going to lay down the law with teenage daughter Laura? Last but not least, don’t you wish the Powers That Be would have shown us more of Leia and Leon’s relationship before the big proposal?

8 | Can the World of Dance directors please stop going for close-ups during the massive and intricate Swing Latino-type group numbersHawaii Five-0 Adam that are best appreciated in full view?

9 |Fosters fans, what’s your theory about how Stef and the new neighbor know each other?

10 |How can the Five-0 team recruit Adam, a convicted felon/former Yakuza boss? (With a magical pardon from the governor?)

11 |What, was Ed Sheeran not available?

12 | Have Salvation‘s Liam and Jillian eclipsed Coca-Cola’s beach stand kids as this summer’s sweetest summer romance?

13 | Were you surprised that The Carmichael Show followed up on the Morris storyline? And now that it has in a substantial way, do you think there’s a chance we’ll meet Joe’s other son before — sniff!the series finale?

14 |Kingdom‘s Christina is going to wind up “adopting” cam girl Kayla, isn’t she?

15 | Are Blood Drive‘s in-faux-mercials more entertaining than the Christoper/Aki half of the storyline? And who besides us was cheering when the show came down hard against the Oxford comma?

16 | Mr. Frakes, where can we buy one? (Seriously.)

17 | Who on Hollywood Game Night thought we needed these “Meet the Stars” interstitials?

18 | Actually, a Timeless/This Is Us crossovercould make sense, right? Like, Kate travels back in time to stop Miguel from murdering her dad with a pick axe?

19 | Is Zoo‘s new Big Bad, Abigail Westbrook, frankly boring you? And is the twist that she is “Jackson’s sister!” not nearly as fascinating as the show would have us believe?

20 |As many have put it, does Serinda Swan’s Marvel’s Inhumans character more read as “Morticia” than “Medusa”?

21 |Late Show viewers, were you let down by Stephen Colbert’s Russia Week? Weren’t you expecting the episodes to consist mostly of footage shot in Russia, rather than one, mayyyybe two segments per night?

Hawaii Five-0 in one fell swoop has effectively reconstituted its recently-depleted team of crimefighters.

Less than three weeks after the news broke that original cast members Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park (who played Chin Ho and Kono) were exiting ahead of Season 8, the CBS procedural has promoted longtime recurring player Ian Anthony Dale (aka Kono’s husband Adam) to series regular, while also adding to its ranks Meaghan Rath (Being Human) and relative newcomer Beulah Koale.

A trusted confidant and resource for the team, Adam Noshimuri will be recruited by McGarrett to officially work for Five-0, while Rath has been cast as Tani Rey, a hotel lifeguard who was kicked out of the Police Academy, despite being a first-rate candidate. (Word of the actress’ casting leaked last week as lookie-loos snapped photos of her filming scenes with Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan at a hotel pool.)

Koale will play Junior Reigns, a former Navy SEAL who has just returned from serving his country and asks McGarrett for a job.

Currently starring on CBS’ summer series Salvation, Dale’s previous TV credits include Murder in the First, The Event and Day Break, while Rath’s resume includes DirecTV’s Rogue and Kingdom, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life, Banshee and Secrets and Lies. Koale has had roles on the New Zealand series Common Ground and The Cul de Sac.

Hawaii Five-0 kicks off Season 8 on Friday, Sept. 29 at 8/7c.

Ian Anthony Dale has been promoted to series regular and Meaghan Rath and Beulah Koale are set as regulars opposite Alex O’Loughlin in Hawaii Five-0, which begins its eighth season September 29 on CBS. The trio was cast following the departures of series vets Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park, who were not able to agree on new deals to return for another season.

Dale has recurred as Adam Noshimuri since Season 2, becoming a trusted confidant and resource for the team, who will now be recruited by McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) to work for Five-0.

Rath will play Tani Rey, who McGarrett recruits after finding her working as a lifeguard at a hotel pool after she was kicked out of the Police Academy, despite being a first-rate candidate.

Koale will portray Junior Reigns, a former Navy SEAL who just returned from serving his country and asks McGarrett, a fellow SEAL, for a job, hoping to repurpose his skills as a member of Five-0. The actor is repped by APA and Jackoway Tyerman.

Dale stars in Salvation, which premieres this summer on CBS.

Rath is known for her starring roles in Being Human and Cooper Barrett’s Guide To Surviving Life and recurring roles in Secrets And Lies and New Girl.

Koale will next be seen in a starring role opposite Miles Teller in the upcoming feature Thank You For Your Service, which hits theaters October 27.

Hawaii Five-0, produced by CBS Television Studios, stars O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Chi McBride, Jorge Garcia, Taylor Wily, Kimee Balmilero and Dennis Chun. Peter Lenkov, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Eric Guggenheim are the executive producers.

New star of Hawaii Five-O reboot plays nice guy in Lopez comedy.

in Times Colonist

20 April 2010

LOS ANGELES — Even the acerbic Aussie Alex O’Loughlin knows when to speak softly and carry on with very little shtick.

The moment arrives when he’s asked about the American TV institution called Hawaii Five-O. O’Loughlin has signed to play the role of Hawaii state police Det. Steve McGarrett, defined by Jack Lord in the classic 1960s cops ’n’ robbers series that ran from 1968 to 1980.

But he’s hesitant to divulge much about the modern makeover, or offer his critical impressions of the original show, which featured a stylized brand of acting and lots of location filming in Hawaii. “I’m not really sure how much I should say,” admits a diplomatic O’Loughlin during a recent chat promoting the Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy, The Back-up Plan, opening Friday.

Some things Hawaii Five-O won’t change, notes the actor. The memorable theme song will be the same, and his McGarrettwill utter the classic “Book ’em Danno” at the end of the pilot.

And, while O’Loughlin’s McGarrett will continue to track down bad guys each episode, he’ll do it with more intensity, and a great deal more hand-to-hand combat, as a former special-ops Navy SEAL commander.

“That’s a lot of fun to do,” the 33year-old says of his action scenes in the series, which wrapped shooting its pilot last month.

For something completely different, there’s The Back-up Plan. In the Alan Poul-directed romantic comedy, O’Loughlin plays a nice guy instead of a villain, a tough guy or an investigator with an attitude. Instead, he’s Stan, a nice guy who meets Zoe (Jennifer Lopez) when they both try to grab the same Manhattan cab at the same time. One thing leads to another as they slowly fall for each other — but there are complications.

Zoe is a forceful independent business woman who has already decided to conceive through artificial insemination because she was getting frustrated waiting for the right guy to come along. So Stan has a lot to consider when Zoe eventually confesses to him that she’s pregnant with twins. Cue the laughs as The Back-up Plan explores, and exploits, the dilemma, mostly for chuckles.

That’s where Lopez comes in, O’Loughlin says. He was surprised and pleasantly pleased by her comic abilities. “Jennifer’s the true queen of romantic comedies,” says O’Loughlin. “And I actually learned a lot from her.”

Lopez, who had script and actor approval, reports that they connected almost immediately, which helped both of them. O’Loughlin’s a rookie in the romantic comedy genre, and Lopez was returning to work after being away for a few years to care for her fraternal twins.

O’Loughlin took a few years to get into the swing of things after starring in several Australian TV series. He joined the cast of the well-received U.S. cable series, The Shield, portraying Detective Kevin Hiatt, but really broke through as the private detective and vampire Mick St. John in Moonlight.

Lopez says O’Loughlin has an onscreen presence that is rare, and should serve him well in his future roles.

“Some actors are good on TV and get lost in a movie,” Lopez reports.“Alex can do both. And especially on the big screen, you want somebody who can hold your attention, and Alex proved he is one of those people who can do just that.”
