I’ve worked with Alex (O’Loughlin) mainly, and you can tell he really cares about the show because he doesn’t miss a beat.
He notices every little detail.
And he’s always down to take the time to get the scene right– he will guide you through it if he needs to– he makes everything really cool and professional at the same time.
I had a pretty long scene with Alex and Scott (Caan) and they play off each other really well– it’s obvious that they like each other and get along– which is why everyone loves their bromance,”

Unfortunately this original article from 2010 seems to be lost. But we found some of it on AOLR. It gave us a good chuckle, so we thought to share it with you …..
Kevin Cuneo is a fan of the old Hawaii Five-0 and a reporter at the Erie-Times News. He totally gets why the new Hawaii Five-0 is a worthy successor of the original.
This is from his article:
As a die-hard fan of the original “Hawaii Five-O” TV show, I should be angry that:
- The new Steve McGarrett often takes his shirt off to go swimming. I would say that nobody cares about the new Steve’s muscular physique, except that we’re still searching for my wife’s contact lenses, which popped right onto the floor the first time she saw the half-naked new Steve emerged from the water.
“I love the aggressive, animalistic side of the show,” says O’Loughlin, who will star in CBS’ buzzworthy remake of Hawaii Five-0 next season. “I love the genre, the action and the masculinity of the character.”
The many passionate female fans were “awesome,” he says, “but I want my pals to think it’s cool.”
Cool, yeah, and very, very hot.

He understood Stan. He got it. And the minute we had him read with Jennifer, it just …. you could feel it in the room. It’s an unknown thing, you can’t really …. it’s an undefinable thing. You just can feel it in the room.
There was a chemistry there.
And everybody always talks about chemistry. But they have a real chemistry there. I think she really felt taken by him. And taken by the character of Stan that he was portraying.
And he’s terrific. He is just a find. I think he’s going to be a major movie star.

To those who celebrate, Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you made it home, despite the awful traffic. Hope your turkey defrosted in time, and cooked to perfection. Now all that´s left, is to join Steve, and fill those empty tummies :D
