Alex O’Loughlin – Déjà vu (Part 2)

The great news that Hawaii Five-o is confirmed for yet another season reached us this past week. So there will be yet another season of more guest actors appearing on the show. We also have some interesting regular casting news, hot off the press for those of you who haven’t heard the news yet! (Not so sure how I feel about it though?)

After this weeks episode, I saw somebody on twitter asking Peter Lenkov the question of how many actors who appeared in Moonlight, have now also guest starred in Hawaii Five-0. Peter must be far to busy to be bothered with this type of trivia. He there is also other actors like Grace, Michelle, Scott, Daniel and Max who starred in others shows with actors that also have been seen on Hawaii Five-0. We are dedicated to Alex and his career and thought it might be fun to take it even one step further and show you actors from both his previous TV series, Moonlight and Three Rivers. Which of the two do you think will win the contest?

1 ) Of course the most well known of the Three Rivers cast, who also appears in Hawaii Five-o, is Steve’s Dad, John McGarrett played by William Sadler. He also played Dr Andy’s Uncle – Michal Zelasko in two episodes of Three Rivers


2 ) The gorgeous Daniel Henney who played Dr David Lee opposite Alex in all the episodes of Three Rivers, came into Hawaii Five-0 as Michael Noshimuri in Episode 3:10. We suspect he will have a reoccurring role, as there is some unfinished business between him and Kono.


3 ) Jordan Belfi, as Beth’s lover Josh Lindsey in 7 episodes of Moonlight, also played Spencer Owens in Episode 1:14 of Hawaii Five-0. Both characters dying from gunshot wounds.


4 ) Meredith Munroe who featured as Coraline’s long time friend Cynthia Davis in Moonlight 12 (Mortal Cure), can also be seen in Episode 2:05 of Hawaii Five-0 as Trisha Joyner, who needs to be saved by Kono while working undercover.


5 ) Who of the Moonlight fans can forget the very lively actress Tierney Taylor, in Episode 14 (Click) played by Peyton List? In Hawaii Five-0 she became a grieving widow, Erica Harris, in Episode 1:11.


6 ) The man who caused the biggest chaos in Hawaii Five-0 with his pretend Tsunami in Episode 1:15 as Commander Sam Hale was actor Brian Goodman. In Three Rivers Episode 11 (Every Breath you take) he was a chief fireman, Capt Lance Carlyle who needed a lung transplant from one of the team members working under him.


7) In Moonlight 13 (Fated to Pretend) we met the corrupt politician Kent Morrow who let his daughter lie for him. He was played by Christopher Cousins who also appeared in Hawaii Five-0 Episode 2:13 as Rick Summers.


8 ) Spencer Garrett featured as a concerned father Robert Drinkwater, in Three Rivers Episode 1 (Place of life). We saw him as the terrible man Ted Lancing causing all the trouble, but who got severely dealt with by Kono and her gun, in Hawaii Five-0 Episode 2:22.


9 ) In Three Rivers Episode 13 (Status 1A) we have a policeman Detective Ted Sandefur played by D B Sweeney very keen of nailing Dr Andy and his uncle for money that has gone missing. He also appeared in Hawaii Five-o Episode 1:19 as a businessman Richard Davis who had an affair with his assistant.


10 ) In Moonlight 6 (B.C) we have the very shady doorman, Alan at the nightclub  played by Patrick Fisher. In Hawaii Five-0 Episode 3:14 we saw him again, but this time as a schoolteacher Ryan Webb, suspected of killing a prostitute.


11 ) Mac Brandt plays Craig Brant in last weeks episode 3:19 of Hawaii Five-0. He lost his brother, his boat got blown up and he was also a suspected of taking revenge on the Kapu, at some stage. We also saw him in Three Rivers Episode 3 (Good Intentions) as Mick the guy who gave Dr Andy a hard time on the rugby field.


12) And of course one of the most hated characters in Moonlight was Kempher in Episode 4 (Fever). –I am sure nobody actually know his name in Moonlight 😀 . He was the man hunting Mick and Leni in the desert. James C Victor also appeared in a very sad evil role this week in Hawaii Five-0 Episode 3:19, as Jay Lappert.


We surely might have missed some and please help us out if we have. So far my count is Moonlight 6 vs Three Rivers 6. We would however put Three Rivers team a little bit in front of the race, because both William Sadler and Daniel Henney are playing important roles in both Hawaii Five-0 and Three Rivers.

We have however heard some interesting news, that just might turn the scales back to the side of Moonlight. Sophia Myles, it seems, has after some tough negotiations signed on to also star in Hawaii Five-0 as a regular. I for one am not overly excited about the news. I have never thought it a great idea to bring either her or Jason Dohring onto Hawaii Five-0. It just seems a bit weird to me. (side note,  Paula however would LOVE IT!)

It will be interesting to see what type of character they are planning for her. Will she be a threat for McRoll, as a new love interest for Steve? What type of role can there be for a new female character? Let’s hope the writers don’t mess this one up!

Update: People asked the link to Part 1. It is a story about Alex’s career in general and here it is

Update: Please read Part 3 of the story here…….. just to get more clarity about Sophia Myles and H5-0… 🙂

  1. Sophia Myles possible love interest for Danny.


  2. Awesome post. I was wondering what the total was, especially for Moonlight characters, but I lost track.

    As for Sophia coming to Five-0, I hadn’t heard that yet so thanks for the news. I would love to see that–depending on the role she has. But I would love to have seen Jason on the show regularly, too. Can’t wait to here more about Sophia. 🙂

    I loved that Erica Harris character in 1:11 ! She made McG show us his soft/touching side 😦 I’m sure all of you remember that scene at the beach when McG told her that her husband has died, makes me shudder, so tenderly acted !
    Thanks for the great work with all the brilliant information, it gave me some aha-moments 😆 !!
    I kinda like Michael Noshimuri character, he doubtlessly will give Kono some trouble (I’m looking forward to that, so Steve can help her out again, I love that, I mean when he cares about Kono 😉 )


    • FOYeur

      He was very kind to Tierney as well. Erica is one of the few character that did not end up in the blue room on H50. 😀
      AND I also love it when Steve cares about Kono….maybe to much. 🙂


  4. OK, is it just me, or in even numbered seasons producers need blonde girls to feel some voids? And, actually, what voids? I am on your side on this one, Foyeur, because I don’t think it’s a good idea to put Sophia into H50. We all very well remember how many screen time “you-know-who” took from Chin and Kono – and fans got used to McRoll by now, so why mess it up? And, like you said, it would be just plain weird to see two of them together again in totally different roles.
    But, all in all – great post again!


    • FOYeur

      Thanks Andrea. It was interesting to see all the old faces again.
      I think the producers learned their lesson with you know who. 😀 (well hopefully)


  5. Lydia

    Fantastic work ! This must have taken ages to sort thru and compile and I love it. Have shared on Hawaii Five0 australia page too with credit to you of course. Great stuff!


    • FOYeur

      Thanks Lydia. It was not really hard work. I actually knew it all, just had to get the correct episodes to quote and then Paula did all the hard work of providing the pictures.
      Thanks for the share!
      You will see, I included the link to the first DeJavu here.


  6. Leni

    I am hoping the spoiler alert is an April fools joke. That would be the dumbest casting move . I like Sophia but she does not belong on H50


  7. Am I reading this right, Sophia Myles coming to 5-0 ???? I find this news shocking, trying to digest.


  8. Sam

    Uh, I love this post. Thank you for pointing all this out.

    And I loved the spoiler about Sophia, especially on this day. 😉


  9. gracenotpark

    Oh good Lord! Not a fan of the Sophia news! Too many holding on too tight to Moonlight who will want to see Sophia WITH McG. And no. Just no. 😕


  10. Karen

    Sophia was alright but I don’t think she belongs in H50. Hope it’s an April Fool joke.


  11. Not sure how I feel about Sophia 😦 A guest star, ok, but not a regular. Maybe the show should figure out how to write for their current female regulars first, before adding more. 🙂 Danny does need a love interest tho. Whatever happens,be sure I will still be watching for our Alex.


  12. Haha! Love this, F and P! 😉


  13. If this Sophia thing is just an April fools joke, I fell for it big time. I forgot what day it was.


  14. marnov2205

    Wow, FOYeur, what an amazing bulk of research!! Respect!!


  15. marnov2205

    P.S.: It makes it look there are like 12 people altogether in the business. Who got to be recycled again and again 🙂


  16. kiwi

    I hope Sophia coming on Show is just a joke(please) and otherwise I think she would be great for Danny.


  17. buttercup

    I’ve just rewatched the episode where L**i is dumped by the Gov and then I come here and all this stuff about Sophia, omg, you’re so awesomly funny here, I can’t believe it! I JUST LOVE IT HERE 😆 !!!


  18. Beth St John

    It true! I find this, say I believe!
    ‘Moonlight’ actress will reappear on CBS
    By | April 1, 2013
    Beth Turner won’t be returning to CBS, but the actress who played her will. “Moonlight” star Sophia Myles has signed a one year contract with CBS, to appear on Hawaii Five-O. Moonlight fans are sure to follow the interaction between the star of H50, Alex O´Loughlin, and Miss Myles. Their love story in Moonlight was cut short, with the show being pulled off air, after only one season. The Moonlight fans might still demand long haired Mick back, but maybe some will be thrilled to turn on H50 season 4 to see these two lovebirds in a hot action packed cop drama.
    Je táime Mick! Love this blog! Superb 🙂


  19. Hooray!!! I loved Sophia, so it’s good to hear we will be seeing her again, in any kind of role. Thanks for that sweet news!


  20. Sandy

    I hope the info about Sophia Myles being on Hawaii 50 is not an April Fool’s joke. I am so excited if the info is true. She and Alex had such great chemistry on Moonlight!!!!


    • Yey! You are my kind of people 🙂 I can´t believe how many got scared of this scenario of Sophia and Alex acting together. Looking at their interaction behind the scenes in ML, I think they would love to work together again…


  21. You ladies are great April Fool’s prankstresses!


  22. Lexy M.

    I tweeted a while back that CBS must be a good employer. They keep these actors in jobs which is great.

    Alex has said that fans should not expect the long hair or Mick to come back. Peter could go a whole new direction with Sophia. I don’t think Terry O’Quinn’s return is permanent and Christine is moving on. Season 4 will need some new blood.


  23. cvc-eve

    While I do love the AF joke, what I really love is what your comparisons show. Not only do many of his previous co workers think so highly of AOL that they are willing to work with him again, but I see true loyalty from him to his co workers. That’s an integrity and character trait that further enhances all his BAMFness !


  24. SueB

    I thought it was an April’s Fool Joke! Huh? 😉 I won’t believe it until I see it!


  25. SueB

    Where is part 1? Can’t remember if I saw it?


    • FOYeur

      Hi Sue B
      The links for Part 1 & Part 3 are at the bottom of the story. Just click on the underlined word ‘here’ and it will take you there!
