The death of Steve McGarrett, according to #AlexOLoughlin – #H50

Amongst all the speculations and angst about the show coming to an end and the fate of Steve McGarrett, I scouted some older posts and found this very humorous quote from Alex from way back in 2011

A post by Officer 808 of Hawaii Five-0 UNDERCOVER and his witty investigations into Hawaii Five-0.

If you enjoyed Alex’s Cosmo candid from yesterday, you’ll love this… Frank Rousseau of France’s TV8 got this quote from Alex O’Loughlin:

Alex gives a humorous imagining of Steve McGarrett’s end: 

“In the course of a parachute jump with the Navy SEALS, in full descent, I’d notice that I had mixed up my backpack with my parachute!  They’d scoop up my body with a spoon and number each piece, and place each one in little boxes with the label “Steve McGarrett Parts, 100% Guaranteed”, which would be sold to tourists as souvenirs.  The proceeds would benefit the Association of Hawaii Five-0 Fans”.

(Unfortunately, apart from The Undercover post, all the other old links are gone.)

This is the funny picture that was shared the day before

–  Alex on the set of a  Cosmo Magazine fashion shoot back in June 2011.

 

With Alex on the picture is Senior Fashion Editor of Cosmo Magazine at the time, Rebecca Hessel Cohen.

 

One magazine that featured the fashion shoot pictures wrote :

“The hottest of these details to complement your style is undoubtedly the handsome star of the Hawaii-Five-O series Alex O’Loughlin…. “

 

 I think the world is in need of some silly humour at the moment.

    juste une petite rectification car on confond très souvent mais TV8 est un magasine of Swizerland (et pas Français). Cette fin pour Mac Garett est amusante mais je préférerais qu’il reste en vie lol

    Alex does have a great sense of humor! And you know, what he said is not a bad idea, LOL!

    I smell business here! If the State of Hawaii starts selling little boxes containing Steve McGarrett’s “parts”, they can make a lot of money that could be used to put up a statue in honor of Alex. Jack Lord has one, so why not Alex? After all, he has contibuted a lot to the promotion of Hawaii. I for one would buy one to enhance my Hawaiian corner at home. I can see it exhibited next to my Kamekona T-shirt (yes, I have one of these terrible T-shirts and what’s more, when I’m feeling really non-conformist and rebellious, I wear it when I go out!).

    Wow, I can already see Alex’s full-size statue erected in Kalakaua Avenue, covered with leis and with a horde of fans queueing at all hours to take a selfie 😂😂😂 !

    Did you ever post this photo shoot here? These are such gorgeous photos, I’d love to see all the photos from that shoot and the magazine article, too. If you did post it, could you find it and re-post it?

  7. LOL! Question is, which part gets the highest bid?
    I’ve always loved Alex kind of humor, a little bit dirty, a little bit dark…
    This quote reminds me of what he said at Three Rivers’ times:
    Q: If you had to donate an organ, what would it be?
    A: Well it wouldn’t be my penis, heart or brain.
    I could give a foot and rock a cane…
    which would make me popular with Hugh Laurie’s female fans.
