Spoiler News: Casting call for a new character, and a love interest for…?

Read no further if you don’t want to know!

TV Guide reports that Hawaii Five-0 casting directors put out an open casting call for a new recurring role:

“A new casting notice says the CBS drama is looking to add a series regular to tentatively debut in the 17th episode of the season.  The character will be somewhere in his or her late 20s to early 30s, a wise-cracking, multilingual Asia expert recruited into the CIA right out of Harvard. The new addition also has a deep-rooted connection to McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin), having taken a bullet for him years ago. And it’s still there, lodged next to the spine.”

The 17th episode isn’t too far away, but who would fit the bill…?  I don’t think it will be a male, since the cast is heavily male dominated.  Moreover, Scott Caan already pulls wise cracking duty for the Five-0 team.  My guess is that it will be a strong female character to strengthen the female presence on the team…

The second bit of news also comes TV Guide.  Looks like we’ll meet Chin Ho Kelly’s love interest in the near future, his ex-fiancée, a “beautiful doctor who helps solve one of the team’s cases by identifying a dead body.” The report adds “naturally, the couple has lots of unfinished business, which might be why the good doctor still wears Chin’s engagement ring around her neck.”

I’ll stay tuned to this news…

    DDK just revealed about an hour ago on twitter he’s working with Reiko Aylesworth, of Lost, Damages, 24 and Stargate Universe. She’s the most likely the candidate to be Chin Ho’s love interest in upcoming episodes.

    How about Daniel Henney, AOL’s old co-star from Three Rivers? I know you’re guessing female, but I sure wouldn’t mind seeing more of Daniel… And he’s got a gorgeous bi-racial look that would fit in well with the Hawaiian groove.

    Just catching up on some of your older posts. Much of it is just laugh out loud funny and very entertaining. Enjoying it a lot. Your blog is making the Five-0 experience that much more fun, so thanks.
