They say ….. nobody cares about the new Steve’s muscular physique

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 want my pals to think it´s cool – #AlexOloughlin quote

“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.

They say …… you feel taken by #AlexOLoughlin

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.

‘Moonlight’ Star #AlexOLoughlin Wonders If ‘Twilight’ Could Have Helped Save His Vampire Series

Some fun from the past ….. an old article about ‘Moonlight’ when Alex was actually doing promotion for ‘The Back-Up Plan’ in 2010.

Just when you thought you didn’t have enough vampire-related pop culture floating around this summer — what with “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” opening on June 30, the third season of “True Blood” and ABC’s new The Gates” — the CW made an announcement that excited some and shocked other when they decided to air reruns of CBS’s short-lived “Moonlight” after summer reruns of “The Vampire Diaries.”

The announcement came only a few weeks after we sat down to talk with “Moonlight’s” leading man, Alex O’Loughlin, to chat about his romcom “The Back-Up Plan.”

What with vampires being all the craze nowadays, we figured we would talk to him about his own pre-“Twilight” fanged drama, not knowing how timely the conversation would soon become.

“It’s a really cool genre,”

Alex told us about being a part of a vampire show.

“I loved the Anne Rice books when I was younger.

I sort of had an idea of the character before I even read the script, I had my own vampire in my head and when I read the ’Moonlight’ pilot, my character in that genre, I was like, dude, I know you. I knew how I was going to do it.”

Despite a fan base that really supported the show, “Moonlight” was canceled by CBS after its fourth episode back in 2007 and only lasted one season. The show was much more traditional than “Twilight,” meaning its vampires were susceptible to sun and silver and slept in coffins. While other shows like “True Blood” and “The Vampire Diaries” have been able to make that classic formula work, its arguably because “The Twilight Saga” revitalized the genre.


“The vampire sort of flavor comes in and out of the entertainment world every so many years. We sort of felt like we were the beginning of this new phase,”

said Alex when we asked him if, had “Moonlight” debuted after Twilight” got big, the show would have lasted longer.

“I don’t know what those answers are, but I loved ’Moonlight.’ I put a lot into it and I got a love of amazing fans who still write to me and still rewatch [the show] — we only did a year, you know but they were very invested in the characters and the story.

I just don’t know, it’s speculative. But I thought it was a good show!”


With our culture so infused with vamps, its hard for their not to be some overlap in style and substance, and Alex joked that sometimes he feels that actors or writers have borrowed from him and “Moonlight.”

“I have vampires in my head all the time,” he said with a laugh.

“I’m like, ’Hey, I did that before you! That’s my move!

Of all the vampire shows and films out now, Alex shared that “True Blood” is his favorite.

“It’s more than a vampire show,” he said.

“I like what Alan Ball has done for the show and all of the characters and stuff. The setting is great.”

And, though Alex’s next project is working on the very unsupernatural remake of “Hawaii Five-O,” we’re crossing our fingers he could potentially make a fanged cameo on one of our favorite vampire shows some day soon.
