Check out ET’s Hawaii Five-0 report

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo gave ET an exclusive interview….followed by Alex O’Loughlin’s huge spoiler (ALERT)!

Hawaii Five-0 gets a dose of True Blood

Actress Mariana Klaveno who played vampire Bill Compton’s maker Lorena in HBO’s True Blood appears in “E Malama”.  Don’t expect Lorena and Mick St. John to be sucking the life out of Hawaii though.

Speaking of seat belts…

Local blogger Wendie Joy Burbridge breaks down the Five-o’s team perceived disregard for the seatblet law:

I’m not sure we all agree with our beltless quartet, but I’m sure we can suspend our disbelief for an hour every Monday to realize that when in pursuit of dangerous criminals, the last thing on our heroes’ minds is a $92 fine for not being safely belted in. We’d like them to think of their health and well-being in case they are in an accident, because we would not want anything to happen to our Five-0 team, but we are always going to be along for the ride. Belted in, or not.

Cary Tagawa’s streaming discussion

Lucky fans got to hear and see Cary Tagawa (Hiro Noshimuri, Hawaii Five-0) on his online discussion Thursday night.  After some technical issues, the discussion really got going for the second (Hawaii) discussion.

Tidbits from the discussion:

Edward James Olmos gave him the best advice to him when he was on “Miami Vice” – don’t move your head, and don’t blink when you act, a lot of energy is wasted with movements.

“While you’re acting, if you have to make something up, make it up.  Just make sure it’s good!”

I asked him what was the one role he thought he should have got.  He responded that he wished he got the role of the samurai in The Last Samurai.  There was a particular speech, he said, where the samurai described how dishonorable it was to kill another man on the battlefield by arrow or rifle, since you didn’t see the enemy’s face.  “That was a character I could definitely identify with.”

Non-Preview of “E Malama”

There is none!  CBS ran a generic promo after last week’s episode of “Mana’o”.  Check out the promo photos for “E Malama” [to protect] on the Facebook group.
