From Matt Webb Mitovich, tvline.com:
German, TVLine has learned exclusively, is boarding the sophomore thrill ride in the series regular role of a smart and beautiful former Homeland Security officer who has been hand-picked by the new Governor (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicless Richard T. Jones) to join the Five-0 task force.
Forced into McGarrett’s elite ensemble, German’s character will not just help them fight crime, but also keep them in check on behalf of the Gov. And, as hinted above, she is poised to also serve as a potential love interest for Alex O’Loughlin’s McGarrett.
German is the latest add-on for Five-0‘s sophomore run (premiering Sept. 19), joining Jones, Lost‘s Terry O’Quinn (as McGarrett’s Navy SEAL trainer), and film vet Tom Sizemore (playing a pesky Internal Affairs agent).
What?!?!!? Where’s Lieutenant Catherine Rollins?!?! Did she and McGarrett break up? Did her carrier deploy to the Persian Gulf (“When the cat’s away…”). Did she meet an untimely demise? What are the writers up to…?
