On Friday 27th September 2013 some good history was made. We got Alex, together with Peter Lenkov and Daniel Dae Kim, live tweeting with broadcast of the Season 4 premiere.
This was the opening tweet:
From there on Alex took over and entertained us for a while. Can’t thank him enough for taking the time to do it. Fans relish the opportunity for any personal contact with him. With so many of us from so far away, it is a wonderful occasion to be able to interact with him a just a little bit.
This is how the rest of the session went:
sabrinanthesand @ItisSabrina : Alex do u hope Wo Fat is McG’s half bro? Also TY bb for #ruokday support XO
Alex: It would definitely answer some questions
Alex: Boy it’s nice to have a haircut!
Alex: We used multiple special camera rigs for some of these shots
Peter M. Lenkov @Plenkov: Love when McG yells
Alex: Yeah, I guess I yell a lot
Alex: Dragging a man like that is actually harder than it looks
Alex: This scene between Kono and Adam we borrowed from the Titanic
Jennifer @PhoenixWytch: What’s your favorite scene in this episode?
Alex: I think that last one with Wo Fat is one of them!
Miss Sara King @Sara_TIU_TW: Was it hard to go back to work on #H50 after you had your son?
Alex: Yeah, I just want to stay with him all day. It’s hard to go to work everyday with a new baby.
Alex: Yes they are my breasts
Alex: Scott just looked at my tits!
Alex: Daniel’s biceps look ENORMOUS in this sequence
Alex: First time we get a good extra and we kill him after three words. It’s hard to get a good extra!

Sonia Singh @soniasingh2014: What are looking forward to most for Steve McGarrett this season?

*MaryEllen Gerette* @mellen2211: Alex, you’re using social media. Do you think you’ll still dislike it after tonight? Big (((hugs))) from #StLouis

Cassidy Douglas @Cassi_Hopee: Question for Alex: if you could write an episode of #H50, what would it be about?
Alex: I would dress Danno up as a woman and send him undercover in a prostitution ring.
Caroline Kimani @cawaki: question for Alex is your mother coming back to wreak more havoc???

K Scofield @KScofield2: Holy shit Mcg just took down Chi – he da man!!! crazy mcgarrett is back!
Alex: It was nothing personal. I just gotta help out my girl.
Alex: Scott’s very funny in this scene
Karen Yin @yin_karen: why does Steve love Danno so much?

Alex: My children are more mature than I am
Julianne Foley @julsfoley: Okay, after you’ve watched an episode, who thinks the most about a scene they wish they’d done differently?
Alex: I don’t think any of us really do. There’s too much work ahead of us to think about what we’ve completed
Alex: Between this Camaro and Danno’s next car we’re going to be rolling in dad’s Marquis
AmandaLinn @xAmandoLinn: I love your bromance between Danno and Steve!.. Is it the same off camera as well!?
Alex: Yeah. We don’t argue as much off camera.
Alex: How often do you see that on TV?
Jessy Monteith @jessyscott: Are we going to see a season 1 Mcgarrett this season? meaning the crazy Mcgarrett that makes Danny go nuts?
Alex:It depends how much coffee I drink
Alex: There’s a scene coming up on the football field where Nestor punctured his lung
Alex: When I jump on the helicopter that’s actually me hanging on
Alex: Who’s the bad b#$% now

Annette Holloway @AnnetteHolloway: Does #AlexOLoughlin do all his own stunts?
Alex: No. Not anymore– I have a kid.
Jessy Monteith @jessyscott: Any other dance tonight exept the “twerk” Alex?!! we can’t wait to see it !
Alex: No dancing. Only nudity
Gina @giinnnnaaa: HE LANDED THE CHOPPER
Alex: I’ve flown a few times
Alex: This is Academy Award-winning makeup artist Jeff Dawn’s work on Wo Fat. It’s fantastic
Alex: They use that plane to transport cattle to and from the Mainland. It smelled like urine. It was the worst.
Alexis Hilyard @sunflowerstarrs: #AlexOLoughlin are you thinking of making any movies soon?
Alex: As soon as I get time. I can’t wait to do another movie.
Alex: This is Toast–he’s one of my favorite characters. We should bring him back.
Sara @iamsara_c: have you or anyone else been seriously hurt on the set?
Alex: Yes. Many times over
Alex: To all the Five-0 fans out there: Without you there is no us. We love you!
I think this was such a nice fun event. Hope we will experience something like this again. Like I said in the beginning there are so many of us living so far away, and we will never get the opportunity to ever see Alex in real life. So interacting with him like this is a great bonus!
