Daniel Dae Kim To Star In Hawaii Five-O Remake

Lost star Daniel Dae Kim is going to star in CBS’ upcoming Hawaii Five-O remake. He will play Detective Chin Ho Kelly, in the role originated by Kam Fong.

I gave up on Lost after the first season, but I am excited to hear that Kim, a terrific actor and one of the few Asian American males on network television, has found life after Lost. He is the first member of the cast to sign on to a new show. Sure, it’ll take some time getting used to him as someone other than Jin. But I’m sure he will have no problem settling into his new role.

Hawaii Five-O is a cop series that ran from 1968-1980. I’ve never seen so much as a clip. And I abhor TV remakes. But this time, I will make an exception.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
