P. Diddy goes Hawaiian
Well this news is a few days old, but reporting it just the same. I gotta tell you, Hawaii Five-0 fans aren’t exactly jumping up and down and making sure their DVRs are set. A lot of fans are looking at his entry into Five-0 cautiously- some with trepidation and doubt. My interpretation of a lot of the chatter on the internet is that he brings with him a lot of celebrity baggage to the show that may eclipse whatever the episode is about. Perhaps CBS is trying to expand their demographics. He received a lot of praise for his role in “A Raisin In The Sun”, so he’s got acting chops. Some people love him, some people don’t, so we’ll see how this plays out.
From William Keck, TVguide.com:
Wow! After delivering the goods in December alongside Robert De Niro on Saturday Night Live, Sean P. Diddy Combs will next play a cop in a spring episode of CBS’s Hawaii Five-0.
According to show sources, Diddy plays a New York police detective named Reggie Williams who heads to Honolulu to hunt down the men responsible for a brutal crime against his family. But this vigilante’s one-man war for justice sets him on a collision course with Team Five-0. Uh oh.
It sounds like Diddy is taking his first action role very seriously. He plans to train with a real Navy SEAL (like Alex O’Loughlin’s McGarrett character) and take part in weapons training. As if this wasn’t cool enough, viewers will also get to hear several of Diddy’s hit songs playing throughout the episode. Book ’em, Diddy!
Reminder of tonight’s episode!
Tonight is an extra Hawaii Five-o episode, but is a repeat of “Ohana”- Russian arms dealers, a kidnapped intelligence analyst, and a glorious catfight with Kono and a Russian spy.
