Alex O’Loughlin: The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson – 7 Sept 2009

Alex made his second appearance on the Late Late Show, in September 2009 – as a promotion for Three Rivers

Craig: Welcome back. Welcome back. Welcome back everybody, what’s up? My next guest is an actor. He’s in a new series called Three Rivers, which premieres Sunday October the 4th at Nine O’clock right here on CBS. That’s a coincidence. Take a look at this.

Craig: Do you know what I think is inappropriate, that there was someone playing the piano in that hospital room? Don’t you want to say, “Hey buddy, knock it off with the piano, this is very serious thing happening here”.

[Laughs all around]

Craig: Please welcome the very lovely Alex O’Loughlin, everybody.


[Loud Cheers]

Craig: Welcome Alex.

Alex: Thank you.

Craig: Alex, it is very nice to have you back on the show because I was concerned the last time you were here, because it was the a …. [throws away a paper he was tearing up]

Alex: What’s that?

Craig: That was the questions.

Alex: Oh.

Craig: I was concerned the last time you were here, because you were doing the vampire show. And then the vampire show got cancelled.

Alex: Yeah.

Craig: And I thought, well that’s it. It’s over for Alex, I thought.

[Audience Laughs]

Craig: But you’re back. Hooray.

Alex: Yup.

Craig: So hooray. Well done.

Alex: It almost was over.

Craig: No it wasn’t.

Alex: No, it was. I went to Mexico and a … I got very sick. I got very sick.

Craig: Tequila?

Alex: No. It was after the Tequila. I went into the forest and I got offered a piece of meat.

Craig: Is this a euphemism, or?

Alex: This is true. True story. I was in the forest and I was looking at the pyramids and having a great time. And I was hungry and there was a little stand. And this guy was selling meat.

Craig: Did he have bedazzled boots on?

Alex: I didn’t see his boots. But he had bedazzling eyes. He was a Mayan. You know the Mayan people are very magical. If you ever go down to Yucatan Peninsula, they’re wonderful people.

Craig: Right.

Alex: But I ate the meat. And I don’t remember anything beyond then. I think … botulism

Craig: You got botulism?

Alex: Very sick.

Craig: That’s very dangerous.


Alex: Yeah, very.

Craig: Are you alright?

Alex: I am now.

Craig: You probably … you probably want to see a doctor for something like that, won’t you?

Alex: Well I thought …. You know you think, Aussie. I’ve eaten kangaroo. I’ve eaten all sorts of stuff. I can do that.

Craig: Can you get Botulism from a Kangaroo?

Alex: I don’t think so.

Craig: Have you eaten a Kangaroo?

Alex: Yeah. Not in its entirety, but I’ve eaten.

Craig: Did you just run up to one and took a bite? They can be vicious.

Alex: Yeah, they get kicky.

Craig: I’ve seen …. I’ve hugged a Koala bear once.

Alex: I’ve not.

Craig: Have you not?

Alex: No, I’ve sort of …. I’ve touched one.

Craig: There’s a park in Hadley where you can hug the Koala bears.

Alex: No, I haven’t hugged one.

koala hug al dl

Craig: Yeah and it did a poop on my shoe.


Alex: You look great.


Craig: That’s …. I haven’t had botulism. You look great.

Alex: I look …

Craig: And you have had botulism.

Alex: I look thin. That was the botulism.

Craig: Yeah.

Alex: You know what, I thought HD. Craig’s in HD, that’s why he looks …. But no you look … you look …. different.

Craig: Thanks Alex.

Alex: How do you like my boots?

Craig: No. The ah …. I actually do quite like them.

Alex: Thank you. They’re Aussie… RM Williams, from Australia.

RM Williams Boots

Craig: RM Williams.

Alex: I’ll hook you up later.

Craig: I can’t wear boots like that.

Alex: You absolutely can wear boots like that.

Craig: I can’t. I’ll look like Austin Powers.


Alex: You can pull these off.

Craig: No, I couldn’t.

Alex: You’re very tall though.

Craig: I’m very very tall. Yah, I’m hugely tall. But how tall are you?

Alex: 6–1 and …

Craig: Six and a half ft.

Alex: You know on a good day, I’m 6-1

Craig: Do you change?

Alex: I do. It depends on like … you know some days …

Craig: I stoop a little bit.

Alex: And some days when I try to … that’s a stoop too.

Craig: Yeah, a reverse stoop. I do that.

Alex: I do that too.


Craig: I try to be taller and I end up falling over.

Alex: And you think you’re more …. You know. You’re extenuating you muscles and the whole… but you’re just … sick.

Craig: No you just look like someone who’s forced at gunpoint into a room.

Alex: Yeah.

Craig: Yeah, that happens to me a lot.

Alex: I wanted to talk to you about so much stuff. But I can’t remember ….

Craig: Well come on then.

Alex: Well, I can’t remember.

Craig: Well that’s a dispiritive issue

Alex: Juliette Lewis won’t skydive. I would.

Craig: Would you skydive?

Alex: They won’t let me though.

Craig: Who won’t let you?

Alex: In my contract.

Craig: Australians?

Alex: [Laughs]

Craig: No mate … no skydiving mate, sorry no.

Alex: No planes, in Australia.

Craig: No planes in Australia, really?

Alex: No. [laughs]


Craig: I went there. I can’t remember how I got there. I think it must have been by kangaroo or something.

Alex: Yeah. You should try …. It’s good meat, kangaroo, if it’s cooked right.

Craig: I’ve had kangaroo meat.

Alex: Oh you have.

Craig: Yeah, it tastes like venison.

Alex: It does taste like venison.

Craig: I know, I’ve had it.

Alex: Okay, it really does.

Craig: Yeah, I know

Alex: Have you had crocodile?

Craig: Yes, I have.

Alex: It’s kind of like lobster, you think?

Craig: No, the crocodile I had, was a bit chickeny.

Alex: [Nods]

Craig: Ah, you’re nodding knowingly. Like, “Ah yeah, you had chicken flavoured crocodile“.

Alex: That would be from way up north.

Craig: No, I never had it in Australia. I had it in Russia.

Alex: Yeah, I didn’t have it in Australia either, I had it somewhere else, I can’t remember where.

Craig: Really.

Alex: You know where I just went? I just got … Just this afternoon I got back from Lake Arrowhead. And I took my boat …

Lake Arrow Head

Craig: That’s where the water is … the a ….

Alex: And you know the tap water up there is actually the …

Craig: Lake Arrow Head water?

Alex: Yeah. That you get in the store here.

Craig: Living the dream there.

Alex: Yeah, they’re living the dream.

Craig: They can …

Alex: What’s in there?

Craig: This is a … this is a …. Lake Arrowhead water I guess. But not from the tap, from …

Lake Arrowhead water

Alex: You’re going to get free Lake Arrowhead water forever now.

Craig: No.

Alex: They’re going to just going to deliver …

Craig: Why? You’re presuming that people from Lake Arrowhead watch this show.

Alex: Happy Labour Day.

Craig: Happy Labour Day to you.

Alex: It’s good to be working, isn’t it?

Craig: Oh, it’s the best.

Alex: I feel [laughs] I feel very grateful.

Craig: Are you an American citizen yet?

Alex: No, but what’s that got to do with it?

Craig: Well, it’s an American holiday buddy.

Alex: You know, I think …..

Craig: I’m an American. I …. I should get the day …

Alex: Barely. Barely.

Craig: I at least should get the day off. You’re not even American.

Alex: Has it been a year?

Craig: Yeah.

Alex: Don’t … don’t clap.

Craig: Be attractive as you like. These people are patriots.


Alex: You know what, I will do it.

Craig: Will you really?

Alex: I just keep forgetting to do the process. Cause I get a visa every time I work and that last for 3 years. And then 3 years later. But I want the green card and the passport.

Craig: You want to become a citizen. It’s more than just documents, you know . You get Labour day of sometimes.

Alex: How long … has it been a year for you yet?

Craig: Over a year, now.

Alex: And you’re still working Labour Day?

Craig: Yeah. Well this is more …. This is more community service than work, really.

Alex: I heard it had something to do with the amount of tax you don’t pay or something. You personally.

Craig: Me personally?

Alex: I heard that .. that’s what they’re saying out there.

Craig: There are tax guys out there?

Alex: I don’t know .

Craig: Through there?

Alex: But that’s the thing you know. I mean, I pay a lot of tax, I thought, maybe I’d get today off.

Craig: Nah…. Nah. It’s got nothing to do with money.

Alex: My …..

Craig: Cheap mattresses. That’s what it’s about. Alex, we’re out of time. Listen, good luck with big Three Rivers thing.

My Thoughts

Five years down the line :

  • And Alex just turned 39,
  • His oldest son, Saxon, is 18 years old now.
  • Alex is married to Malia for just over a year now,
  • And they have another son, Lion, who turns 3 soon.
  • J.Lo is divorced from Marc now.
  • The muffins did not do much damage – he’s still got a bod to die for. :grin:
  • And that must have been a really a long and glorious date ….. sigh …

Yippee! The cake spells Alex today!

Happy Birthday Alex!


39 has never looked better on anyone! Tall, dark and lethally handsome, with curves in all the right places and a bit of silver dusting ;) Than you for all the joy you bring us every day. Today, we wish you, Alex, all the best, lots of love and health and happiness and hope you get to share your celebration with good friends and loved ones. And most of all, may your cake last for days and drinks keep coming!sunnies smiley


And just to remind us again, quoting his friends, why we have fallen (hopelessly) for this wonderful man cat_smiley01

“A lot of times you do a pilot … and you know if the pieces aren’t working. And I think they knew right away they had a star in Alex and they just rebuilt around him.”

”Moonlight” co-star Brian Whiteyess smileyf

“He’s not only attractive, but he’s very, very sweet,” she said.“He’s a very genuine, kind, really nice guy. I really like Alex. We kind of have this cool rapport.”

“Alex is [a] great human being with an incredible work ethic who always makes me feel like part of the #H50 family.”

Will Yun Lee, “Hawaii Five-0″ actor on Twitter, March 3, 2012

h50 promo at bday

And just to be really sure, we even checked the ´real´stars, is he really that wonderful?

At heart Alex O’Loughlin is modest and humble and rarely strives to be in the limelight or in a position of power. Alex is loving and well loved by others, and has a strong need for relationships that offer kindness, friendship and affection. His artistic and creative powers are also well developed and Alex does everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing manner. Aesthetics are very important to O’Loughlin, as are his personal appearance and attractiveness.  Alex  comes across as tolerant, broad-minded, and well educated or as a seasoned traveler. He radiates a certain distinction, even nobility. O’Loughlin is apt to have a significant, beneficial impact on the people he encounters, without even realizing it.


It must be true, everyone keeps reminding us, we picked the right guy to fall for…thankgod!

Alex, we wish you an amazing fun day, with lots of wonderful surprises and lovely treats to enjoy. 

Happy Birthday honey!

Life around #AlexOLoughlin – a week in review (16 – 22 August 2015)

A somewhat quiet and maybe even sad week around here ……

Please be aware that some pictures in the post, that came  from the set, may be regarded as spoilers.

Life on the Set:

Masi's tweet

Grover seems to know how to do it.

  •  Christopher Naoki Lee
thereelchrislee When this show rebooted and came on 5 years ago, I instantly thought “damn it’d be cool to get on a series like this.” Years later, here I am, humbled, and working on Hawaii Five-0 with such a talented group of cast and crew, including this main man, Alex O’Laughlin. And even with all my (fake) tats, he still looks way more bad ass than me. Looks like I got more work to do. #hawaiifiveo
Chris lee
Once again the people tagging and calling him “Alex O’Laughlin” – WHY?


Fan photos:

The Five-0 Redux  – My friend Karen Torres got an early birthday present a pic with ‪#‎H50‬‘s Alex O’Loughlin who attended the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii fundraiser at Lanikuhonua 8/15. She was kind enough to share it with me. Thanks Karen! Please credit Karen if you share. ‪#‎Five0Redux‬

Alex & Karen Torres

Was looking forwards to some more pictures from this event – but unfortunately only more pictures from last years event surfaced :sad:

 News for the week:

Hollywood on set


Something Pretty from other fans:

  •  From @Mymaximus

From Mymaximus on Twitter

Some fandom laughs for the week:laugh:

pronouncedhorha Hey @danieldaekim I’m at the vet. Think I just found our new band name.

Jorge's picture

Just as background info – Jorge and Daniel are part of a Music Band – but they do not have a name for it yet.

The words of a fangirl: Sad smiley 141

  I can’t imagine how desolate one’s life must be for you to feel you have to harass a TV producer over a fictional character.

Alex & Friends:

 Egan Inoue –  Taika’s first BJJ class and Alex’s first day as a purple belt.

Alex, Egan & Taika

  • Taika Waititi, also known as Taika Cohen, is a New Zealand film director, writer, painter, comedian, and actor. He was nominated for an Academy Award for his 2004 short film Two Cars, One Night (Thank you to @CarolineinNZ  for sharing the knowledge of who he is)

Some totally different news from an old colleague of Alex … (Thank you for sharing the link –  @alavenia )

  • In an interview with Hitfix this week, Shannyn Sossamon chats about her turn to genre and the new horror sequel ‘Sinister 2’
When asked about another season of “Moonlight?
“Sure, I love those people that I worked with, Sophia [Myles] and Alex [O’Loughlin]. I would do it just to hang out with them. That was a fun job.”  – Shannyn Sossamon, Hitfix, 20 August 2015
Mick & Coraline

 Some Trivia for the week:

  • It is truly sad to see the negativity and rudeness from a certain faction of the #H50 fandom once again spoiling the joys of being a fan for everybody else. For those of you who don’t know –  Peter posted an editing picture on Instagram from 603, of Steve and Cath in bed and he then later the next day deleted it  …… because of all the rude comments on  it :sad:

plenkov Never boring. #H50 603 editing

Peter's editing picture

When people comment and say that they find a simple editing picture like this from a fictional television show of 2 people in bed disgusting, and wanted to vomit because of it. And then they even throw in comments like, “This creates the need for STD’s and HIV tests” – Yikes! And those who defend these rude comments, with the use of foul language (like: ‘fuck on with your life’) towards the rest,  just show their real character even more. But I suppose that is life – those who are clearly detached from reality, sometimes makes life harshly unpleasant for larger society.


Of course anybody is entitled to their own view and have the freedom to state it anywhere ….. but there are ways and ways to do so! How and where you do it, maybe show your (lack of) class and character (as a bully). AND unfortunately for others who also share their opinion – everybody else who want to say they don’t like something – are then associated with your rudeness and lack of class. I know I unfairly, but automatically do that now with anybody who don’t like that storyline …..

My Pet Peeves: :drama:

  • Yes, you might have guessed it – people whose world are so small, that they think everybody should share their opinion or should be shouted and harassed into submission to do so …..

Most ‘interesting’ search for the week:

  • moles and holes alex oloughlin

I guess they came to the right place – because here we study everything about Alex

Thought (or Tweet) for the week:

  •  There’s none so blind, as those who will not see…..

Next Week:

  •   They should be finishing up with episode 6:05 during the course of this week and by the end of the week start filming 6:06.

Special News for the Week:

Michelle Borth celebrated her birthday last week on Wednesday the 19th of August,  Scott is celebrating his birthday today the 23 rd and of course tomorrow the 24th is Alex’s birthday – well in his birth country they will  already start  celebrating his birthday pretty soon. :smile:

It looks like Scott and maybe the rest of the cast got a ‘great’ gift from the writers – a mud bath after a nice run.

Happy Birthday Scott!!


Something pretty to end and start your new week with – original picture before Paula played with it, came from @Mymaximus in Twitter :smile:

s2 plaid dl

And a special thanks to those fun and funny people that we share a love for Alex and his work with – I might not comment on what you say online, but I see and enjoy your witty remarks – reminds me of the early days here …..
