Sounds like Lost vet Terry O’Quinn has been enjoying his return to island living in his recurring role as a Navy SEAL working alongside Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) on Hawaii Five-0.
According to executive producer Peter Lenkov, Terry has agreed to extend his run as Lt. Commander Joe White. “His original deal was six episodes, and now we’ll do another three,” Lenkov reports. “And we’re hoping for even more.”
Terry still maintains hope of headlining his own series — possibly Hallelujah, a new soap currently being rewritten byDesperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry after ABC failed to find a spot for the original pilot on its fall schedule. “Terry’s a guy who really wants to get his own show, and he deserves that,” Lenkov says. “That’s his goal. But we’d love to make it work where he could do both.”
