It’s fitting that one of TV’s biggest action shows, “Hawaii Five-0,” should receive an Emmy Award nomination today for stunt coordinator Jeff Cadiente.
The nomination was for the first season’s May 9 episode “Ua Hiki Mai Kapalena Pau,” which saw Danno Williams exposed to a deadly neurological poison.
Cadiente is a true veteran of the business and a member of a closeknit fraternity called Stunts Unlimited. His resume stretches back to the mid-1980s and if you haven’t seen his face, you have probably seen his stunts. He’s been in 93 productions.
He was the stunt coordinator on 79 episodes of the popular Fox series “24” and earned an Emmy nomination in 2006 for his work on the show. In 2010 he was part of a group of stunt performers who won a Screen Actors Guild award for work on “24.”
His movie credits include “Con Air,” “Austin Powers in Goldmember” and “XXX.”
Cadiente’s competition for the Emmy is Paul Jennings for work on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” PeeWee Piemonte for work on TNT’s “Southland,” and Allen Popleton for work on Starz “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena.”
