CBS TV series ‘Hawaii-Five-0’ casting actors and extras in Los Angeles and Hawaii


The new CBS crime drama ‘Hawaii-Five-0’ is currently in production and casting for principal actors, day players, extras, and stand-ins is underway. The original series aired from September 20, 1968 to April 4, 1980. This new version of Hawaii Five-0 is set in present-day Hawaii and is spelled ‘Hawaii Five-0’ with the last character a zero instead of a capital letter such as the original series was spelled. The name of this television series comes from the fact that Hawaii was the 50th state to join the United States. The show will join the network’s 2010–2011 fall lineup.

The series regulars and most of the guest stars are cast out of Los Angeles, and the rest of the casting is done in Hawaii. Shooting began July 15, 2010 and shoots in Oahu, Hawaii. The series is under AFTRA contract.

A contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the Islands’ sun-drenched beaches. Detective Steve McGarrett, a decorated Naval officer turned cop, returns to Oahu to investigate his father’s murder and stays after Hawaii’s governor persuades him to head up the new team: his rules, her backing, no red tape and full blanket immunity to hunt down the biggest “game” in town. Joining McGarrett is Detective Danny “Danno” Williams, a newly relocated ex-New Jersey cop who prefers skyscrapers to the coastline but is committed to keeping the Islands safe for his 8-year-old daughter; and Chin Ho Kelly, an ex-Honolulu Police Detective wrongly accused of corruption and relegated to a federal security patrol, who is also a former protégé of McGarrett’s father. Chin’s cousin, Kono, is a beautiful and fearless native, fresh out of the academy and eager to establish herself among the department’s elite. McGarrett vows to bring closure to his father’s case while the state’s brash new FIVE-0 unit, who may spar and jest among themselves, is determined to eliminate the seedy elements from the 50th state.
