‘Hawaii Five-0’ hits 100!
ET’s Brooke Anderson was on set last month for the filming of Hawaii Five-0’s 100th episode and today the cast repaid the favor, stopping by to talk about their much-anticipated milestone.
“There’s a big ‘something’ that we’ve been talking about for four and a half years that finally gets resolved,” revealed series star Alex O’Loughlin.
It’s an emotionally charged episode, and O’Loughlin told ET that his character has to deal with much of the turmoil without the help of his Five-0 teammates.
“I was kind of separate from the rest of the crew for the episode,” O’Loughlin dished.
“When everybody sees it, you’ll see that my character is out doing something else. I’m not around.”
Since the show’s premiere in 2010, the cast has also undergone some major real-life changes. O’Loughlin married girlfriend Malia Jones earlier this year, and co-star Scott Caan welcomed his first child, daughter Josie James, in July 2014.
“I try not to give him any unsolicited [parenting] advice,” said O’Loughlin, who is a father of three.
“Sometimes he comes through with a question or two.”
The stars also looked back at some photos from the show’s early days.
“I look the same,” Caan teased O’Loughlin. “You’ve aged terribly.“

– 7 November 2014 –
Star Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan just blew in from Oahu and sat down with our Brooke Anderson. One hundred in and those stunts aren’t getting any easier.
Brooke: Now, I’ve been visiting the set for years.
Brooke: And I know that you love to do your own stunts. But you’ve hurt yourself.
Brooke: Do you still insist on jumping out of thing and running into things?
Alex: No, no, not at all. I actually would like to work in a library. When I hear gunfire, I like twitch. I think I have a little bit of PTSD.
Scott: Yeah for sure
Brooke: Some hearing loss?
Alex: You’ve got to wear your plugs.
Brooke: Oh, you got to wear your plugs.
Alex: I’m actually just looking at how young we looked these. [to Scott] Well you kind of look the same.
Scott: I look the same. You aged.
Brooke: That was the beginning.
Alex: I’ve aged terribly. That’s five years ago
Brooke: You have not aged at all!
Alex: You have to say that, we’re on TV. It’s okay.
Scott: I mean you aged from there to there.
Alex: Yeah, it’s like you can see the progression of Alex from here to here to here.
Brooke: You guys are awesome. Always good to see you. And congratulations again. One hundred episodes.
Alex: Thank you
.….And now, where is the rest of it? Surely there was more. 😕
