NCIS: LA‘s Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah) will soon be kicking ass a little west of Los Angeles when she heads to Hawaii Five-0 in an upcoming episode of the show’s second season. But what takes her all the way to the sandy shores of Hawaii? In real life, it didn’t take much, NCIS: LA executive producer Shane Brennan tells EW.
“Interestingly, Daniela has never been to Hawaii, so it took no convincing,” he jokes. He declined to give too many details of the case that finds Kensi working with the team on Five-0. But he did share this: READ FULL STORY
From the looks of this first trailer for the show’s second season, O’Quinn is a man of action as he takes on bad guys with Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin). The Lost veteran plays a Navy Seal Lt. Commander who trained McGarrett on the show, which has also enlisted guest stars like Patty Duke, Lauren German, and Tom Sizemore.
Check out this exclusive first look at O’Quinn taking aim at Hawaii Five-0, which returns Sept. 19. “You’re not exactly the Aloha type… “
A familiar face from Dawson’s Creek is setting sail for Hawaii Five-0.
Meredith Monroe, who played Andie McPhee for two seasons on The WB soap, will guest star next season on the CBS hit. She’ll play an unhappy wife who leaves her wealthy husband with “the assistance” of the a local volleyball coach. She then learns the money she took from her husband actually belongs to a dangerous criminal who then kidnaps her. Five-0 team to the rescue?
It’s a match made in procedural heaven.
A CBS spokesperson confirmed the news NCIS:LA cast member Daniela Ruah excitedly tweeted today: Her character, Kensi Blye, will head to Hawaii Five-0 for an episode in the fall. “Aloha hoaloha! Read my lips closely… Kensi will make her way to Hawaii Five-0 this season! Stay tuned…,” Ruah wrote.
No further details about the episode were released, but I have a burning question: Is her partner Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) going with her? (Hey, a girl can dream.)

A big wave of stars continue to land on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0. The show has just signed Oscar-winning TV legend Patty Duke to guest star in a season 2 episode.
Duke will play an Alzheimer’s-afflicted mother of a murder victim. When the Five-0 team go to deliver the notification, they learn her condition has her believing that her adult son is actually still a child. For a while, the team shields her from the news, but ultimately she must confront her devastating loss.
According to IMDb, Duke’s first TV series appearance was back in 1957 (Kraft Theatre) which later lead to her namesake sitcom Patty Duke Show (1963-66), followed by shows like It Takes Two (1982), Hail to the Chief (1985) and Karen’s Song (1987). She won an Oscar at 16 for her starring role in The Miracle Worker and guest-starred on the original Hawaii in 1973. Duke joins a slew of new names on Hawaii bulking up the hit show’s second season, with stars ranging from Lauren German to Tom Sizemore to John Locke himself, Terry O’Quinn. The show returns Monday, Sept. 19.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Hostel: Part II actress Lauren German has been added to CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 team. (TVLine first reported the story.)
German has a recurring role next season as a “smart, beautiful, ex-Homeland Security Officer hand picked by the governor to join the Five-0 task force, not to just help them fight crime, but keep them in check.”
Hawaii Five-0 has landed another well-known actor for its second season: Tom Sizemore is joining the CBS action-drama as a the head of Internal Affairs for a multi-episode arc.
The tough-guy performer best known for Saving Private Ryan, Red and Black Hawk Down will play a former Detroit Homicide Detective turned head of Hawaii police’s IA unit. After the events of last season, he is actively investigating the Five-0 unit and he’s not cutting them any slack (despite our heroes having the support of the new Governor).
The casting comes on the heels of Lost star Terry O’Quinn signing onto the series last week in a recurring role as a Navy Seal Lt. Commander who trained Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin).
Hawaii launched strong last fall and represented one of the few freshman shows to earn a second season. The cast additions could help bolster interest in the series this fall as it continues airing in its competitive Monday night period.
Talented Lost veteran Terry O’Quinn has found his next TV gig, and he doesn’t even need to leave the Aloha State to do it.
O’Quinn has joined CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 in a recurring role, sources confirm (we were hoping O’Quinn would get hired to replace Laurence Fishburne on CSI, but alas… ). The actor will play a Navy Seal Lt. Commander who trained Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin). The move reunites O’Quinn with his former Lost co-star Daniel Dae Kim. O’Quinn starred in ABC’s pilot Hallelujah from Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry that was aiming for a fall slot, but the show didn’t get picked up.

Last week, we tackled some of your burning questions. This week, it’s round 2. The countdown to the June 26 premiere of True Blood is on! Here’s some stuff to tide you over.
Hi. I am a HUGE fan of True Blood. I know this season is primarily about Sookie/Eric, but this Bill fan wants to know if the former couple will have any decent scenes together as well? Will Bill be pursuing Sookie or is he too busy with his new power position? — CK
I know you’ve seen the first eight minutes, but the next eight will definitely answer your question about whether Bill cares or not. That said, Bill’s storyline is sometimes very twisted, but mostly just full of twists. READ FULL STORY
Look who’s becoming an islander! Heroes alum Masi Oka told EW that he’ll become a series regular on Hawaii Five-O when the drama returns for a second season on CBS this fall. “They were kind enough to offer me more regular work,” Oka told EW while walking the red carpet of the Super 8 premiere on Wednesday. “I don’t know yet if it I will be needed for every episode because they are writing the next season now but Dr. Max Bergman will be more involved. I guess they will need more help from the coroner. I think he got a good response from viewers so they are looking to featuring him more
“I’m happy because I like the show, the guys are great to work with and it’s Hawaii. Who doesn’t want to work in paradise?” Oka continued. “I hope they delve into his personal life more. Max Bergman is a nut and I’d liked to know more about who he is and what he does with his time but that is not up to me. But I think there is a lot left to develop with him. I think it is going to be a fun job. It was not hard for me to accept the offer. We start in July. I am just excited. I love the cast. I love the crew. I liked the original show but I think they have done a great job updating it.”
The news was first reported on TVLine.
