Hawaii Five-0 to reunite Heroes stars

From Matt Webb Mitovich, TVline.com:

Losties aren’t the only fans being treated to a reunion by Hawaii Five-0, where Terry O’Quinn will share scenes with Daniel Dae Kim this coming season. No, the Heroes faithful will similarly see Masi Oka meet up with a familiar face, when Greg Grunberg guest-stars on the CBS action-drama, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Grunberg will play a ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agent based out of Honolulu, and whose team’s primary functions are the survey of items smuggled into the region and all Homeland Security threats.

“He has worked with Five-0 team member Lori Weston (played Lauren German) on Homeland Security issues before, so he is aware of the task force and their successful and unorthodox ways of handling cases,” executive producer Peter M. Lenkov tells us of Grunberg’s character. “His first exposure to working directly with Five-0 is when the team handles the murder investigation of an ICE Agent under command.”

Where there’s a murder, there’s a dead body. And where there’s a dead body, there’s often a coroner. Cue Oka, who is now a Five-0 series regular as Max.

“Of course, we plan to infuse the character with Greg’s unique personality and humor,” says Lenkov, “as well as put him in a scene with Masi for those die-hard Heroes fans.”

    And Ando from Heroes was already on the show, although James Kyson Lee and Masi Oka didn’t share a scene. Then there was Iron Chef Morimoto playing himself – thought we would have a “when worlds collide moment” if Wo Fat would’ve walked into this restaurant! And Alex has also had alums from his previous serieses (what is the plural for that??) pop up on H50. The head in the box episode guested the DA boyfriend from Moonlight and John McGarett is played by William Sadler who had a small recurring role on Three Rivers as Alex’s character’s uncle.

    Anyway, looks like there are lots to look forward to. Thanks for the updates Officer.
