Monday’s news: Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa’s tweetup in Honolulu; Nick and Vanessa on Five-0; Kukui High sends a care package

Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa extends his vacation

Originally here to do a workshop this past weekend, Cary has decided to stay in Honolulu just a little bit longer to get in touch with his huge fan base.  He plans to do a tweetup (@CHTagawa) at the Venue, in downtown Honolulu on Wednesday night from 6-9PM.  Every fan is looking forward to the event!

People magazine broke the news first…real life engaged couple Nick (of 98 Degrees fame) and Vanessa will play newlyweds on a cruise ship hijacked by pirates in an upcoming Five-0 episode.

Fancast also reports that a fifth member will join the Five-0 team,  executive producer Paul Zbyszewski said.

“It is not that I think we needed a new member,” he says.  “But I think it would be nice to bring out some things in our other characters.  And sometimes you need a different perspective from a different character to do that.”

Five-0 casting put out a call for a “wise cracking”  buddy from McG’s past a few months ago…the part still has not been cast.

He gives us a little hint on Dane Cook as well:

“That is an episode I am writing right now.  Danny and his brother have a very good relationship.  We are going to get to explore that a little bit and reveal a little bit more about Danny’s family history.  It will be fun to have someone of Dane Cook’s spirit and energy on the show.  We are really looking forward to having him go back and forth and interact with Scott (Caan).  The storyline is not all just going to be played for comedy.  There is a lot of good emotion and drama in that episode that will take place between their characters.”

    Hmmm, why axing Mary Ann’s character on the ground that there was not enough room to developp her, only to bring in more people afterwards ?

      That’s something a few other people have noted as well. I don’t think she was permanently axed, it’s just a storyline/avenue that the writers didn’t want to go down. But yes, they’re bringing in Danno’s brother, an old partner of McG, and Chin Ho’s ex-fiancee. I guess the writers thought they needed to spread the backstories around more evenly? Taryn hinted that Mary Ann will be back in the future at sometime.
