Even the BBC picked up on this part of the story :

'Lost's' Daniel Dae Kim tapped for 'Hawaii 5-0' remake



CBS's new incarnation of 'Hawaii Five-0' to a huge step towards becoming a reality with one casting move. Daniel Dae Kim will be playing one of the 'Hawaii Five-0' team. The 'Lost' veteran, who is available for work because the ABC drama ends on May 23, will be a cop on 'Five-0.'

No, they're not making Steve McGarrett, the lead detective. Kim has been cast as Detective Chin Ho Kelly, the second or third guy, depending on the episode. In the original series, Kam Fong played the role, and James MacArthur as Dano was perceived more of the second guy on the team. But in today's more diverse era, Kim may have a more prominent role than Fong did.

As for McGarrett, there's still a lot of scuttlebutt that CBS will give the role to Alex O'Loughlin. It would make sense considering how determined the network is to find a series that will run beyond a season for the 'Moonlight' man. If it is O'Loughlin, the rest of the 'Five-0' crew might similar to the composition of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' with the exception of Linda Hunt. In other words, youthful, attractive and diverse.

Kim won't have to move for his new role. The new 'Hawaii Five-0' will be filmed in Hawaii, where 'Lost' has been shot for six seasons. At least he still wants to be on television. Based on comments by his 'Lost' colleagues, Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly, they're burned out and ready to disappear from the tube.

Actually don't you think a spoof of the show would be the best approach? We already think of Jack Lord as a caricature. His hair, vanity, and that black suit in the hot Hawaiian sun.

I never bought off on all of the urban crime that 5-0 was encountering in Hawaii. You'd think Honolulu was the sister city of Chicago. Also they were always jetting off to Hilo which gave the impression that it was "Boston" to Honolulu's "New York". When I finally visited Hilo, all I found was (Polynesian) "Small Town USA". This might have worked in the late 1960's and early 1970's but I think credibility is going to be stretched with today's modern audience (unless you're going to mock it).

I think Magnum P.I. would be the better remake. Hawaii's casual "local" color is its most interesting feature and makes for better background for an Aloha-shirt wearing P.I. driving around in a borrowed Ferrari.

I vote for Will Smith as the new Magnum P.I. Wait, he might be a little old for that. Let's just make him the new Steve McGarrett. He was a great James "Wild Wild" West. It'll be guaranteed box office !! "Book em' Danno".

My 'McGarrett moment' included him pulling up in this Merc next to the 160' schooner I lived on in the 70s and getting out looking like a 5-0 God before a shoot that morning across the Aloha Tower parking lot at Pier 7 and extending his hand to me (which I knew he was usually loathe to do!) as I worked, with a smile and wanting to talk boats for a minute. Nice guy for a surprise.
Got a few secs of the boat in the show too.

Heard once, he got in this car and flipped out smelling ciggy smoke, and had the entire interior torn out and replaced.

Marsters will always be "Spike" to me - even without the fake accent! Looks like it could be a fun show - I look forward to it (hopefully on one of the main TV stations since I just got rid of cable for the sake of $$$!) Thanks for the updates!

I hope that the new McGarrett comes face to face with Dog the Bounty Hunter and kicks his ass.

Now THAT would be worth a Pay-Per-View showing! McGarrett might have a bit of trouble if he had to deal with Uniboob though. LOL

Kinda....8 years = deadlinks + for Movie (not television series) that never came to fruition.

Interesting reply left on the Honolulu Advertiser's comment section for the above article.

Many of the scenes for the original were shot in and around the area of my parents' home near Diamond Head. One day (circa 1970) my mother was returning from Times Market with, among other things, ice cream. Tutu could not get to the house because the streets were blocked off for shooting. She was huhu - and told the security folks about her melting ice cream. About two hours later, Jack Lord himself appeared at her front door, bearing a large quantity of ice cream. Talk about 'aloha spirit'.

We hope the new set of characters has the same spirit and enthusiasm for the show.
