(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

Season 8 of CBSHawaii Five-0 will be without two of its veteran cast members. Daniel Dae Kim, who played Chin Ho Kelly, and Grace Park (Kono Kalakaua) will not be returning for the eighth season.

CBS says fans will be updated on their characters in the season premiere on Friday, September 29.

“I will never forget meeting Daniel while still writing the pilot and being certain there was no other actor who I’d want to play Chin Ho Kelly,” said Peter Lenkov, executive producer. “Needless to say, Daniel has been an instrumental part of the success of Hawaii Five-0 over the past seven seasons and it has personally been a privilege to know him. Grace’s presence gave Hawaii Five-o a beauty and serenity to each episode. She was the consummate collaborator, helping build her character from Day 1. They will always be ohana to us, we will miss them and we wish them both all the best.

“We are so appreciative of Daniel and Grace’s enormous talents, professional excellence and the aloha spirit they brought to each and every one of our 168 episodes,” CBS said in a statement. “They’ve helped us build an exciting new Hawaii Five-0, and we wish them all the best and much success in their next chapters. Mahalo and a hui hou…”

There had been questions as to whether Kim would return after his new medical drama, The Good Doctor, co-created with David Shore, was picked up to series. Kim is serving as executive producer on the show.

    Okay, so usually I devote Thursday to highlight a hike that I’ve done here in Hawaii. Well, this isn’t a hike so much but it was an adventure and I can’t wait any longer to share it with y’all!

    Hollywood has been busy for months building sets in preparation for filming the newest Jurassic World 2 movie! It’s been all the talk around the island!

    My son is a HUGE Jurassic Park fan. I had been seeing posts from people on Facebook that they’ve been able to see some of the sets while touring Kualoa Ranch. I even saw this post on Instagram of Chris Pratt (Owen on the Jurassic series) being spotted during one of the tours at the ranch…

    I figured, it was time to go see for ourselves!

    Kualoa Ranch is like the Hollywood Studies of Hawaii. More than 50 movies and TV shows have been filmed at Kualoa over the years, includingParadise, Hawaiian Style, Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, 50 First Dates, You, Me and Dupree, Hawaii Five-0, Mighty Joe Young, Pearl Harbor, Windtalkers, Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island and Lost.

    We decided on the Movie Sights Tour since our goal was to see some “dinosaurs.” Immediately when we arrived, we saw signs there may be some dinosaurs on the grounds…

    possible “dinosaur poop”??? haha
    We saw this sign for the set and knew we were on the right trail…

    Once we checked in for our tour, we had some time to look around before the tour began. Let’s just say, I was a little excited to see who some of the Legendary Stars & Guests were! In particular: Duane Johnson aka “The Rock” and Alex O’laughlin “Steve McGarret” from Hawaii Five-O.

    The tour took us to an old World War 2 bunker that was built in 1943. It was used in the military previously but now is used for filming various tv shows and movies.

    I was pretty excited to see a set from Hawaii Five-O

    There were also props from other movies:

    As awesome as the bunker was, this was just the beginning of the tour!

    Do these mountains look familiar to you?

    As we drove through here, I could just imagine a bunch of dinosaurs or maybe some gyrosphere’s rolling around!

    Here are a few of our favorite Jurassic World pictures from the tour (including a dinosaur cage from the current set and the famous “Jurassic Park” log from the original Jurassic Park movie)…

    As we traveled down the road Lucy drives on every day on the movie “50 First Dates,” we also saw some left over props from Kong Skull Island which was filmed here last year as well as props from the movie Journey 2.

    Journey 2 movie props
    All in all, it was an amazing day!

    It was full of fun things to see and perfect weather! I know of a few other locations they are filming on the island. So, I’ll be on the look out for sure! Maybe I’ll run into some dinosaurs while I’m out hiking even!?!!?

    Are you excited for this new movie to come out? Have you seen the previous Jurassic Park movies? What do you think it will be about…besides dinosaurs!!?!? lol

    Trekking Through

    With Aloha,

    Oh, Victor Buono, how do I love you? Let me count the ways.

    Funny, campy, witty, clever, a man whose presence was more than his size, this lover of Shakespeare dedicated himself to his craft in a way that let him fully embody a character, even take it over the top (and in some cases way over the top), yet never take himself too seriously nor lose credibility with the audience in the process.

    Obviously, if Batman was the only rerun I’d ever seen Victor Buono in, that would be enough. His King Tut is my favorite Batman villain and with good reason. He embraces the camp of the show, revels in it. He bellows, he insults, he bosses, he throws tantrums. He goes from joyful to angry and back again. He thinks torture is good clean fun. He is royalty. Every line is quotable and so much of it is in King Tut’s delivery. My personal favorite is “My queen is disloyal, my handmaiden is a traitor, and everybody’s being mean to me!” It’s delivered as only Victor Buono can.

    Though he never made it onto The Green Hornet, Mr. Buono did guest start in two other short-lived series starring Van Williams, Burbon Street Beat and Surfside 6.

    And Batman wasn’t the only show in which he was a recurring character. He also did six episodes of the short-lived (I’m sensing a theme) series Man from Atlantis and six episodes on the longer-lived series Vega$.

    He also did a couple of episodes as Count Manzeppi on my beloved The Wild Wild West (including an episode with Richard Pryor in one of his first TV acting appearances), however, Victor Buono also appeared in the pilot episode of the series in the bizarre role of a Mexican in disguise as a Chinese man. I will repeat that because it bears repeating. White Victor Buono played a Mexican in disguise as a Chinese man.

    The ’60s were wild.

    Speaking of the ’60s, those were busy guest star times for Mr. Buono. He appeared on Westerns Sugarfoot, The Rebel, and Daniel Boone; had some watery fun on Seahunt and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea; went undercover on The Man from UNCLE, The Girl from UNCLE, and I Spy; found himself on various sides of the law in Hawaiian Eye, The Untouchables, 77 Sunset Strip, and Perry Mason; and he found time to thrill on Thriller and visit The Flying Nun.

    Lucky for me, Mr. Buono graced Hawaii Five-O with his presence, playing a European master criminal after a rare Liberty head nickel. I believe this is also the episode that features the husband and wife in charming matching outfits. Only that could challenge the presence of Victor Buono and Jack Lord together onscreen.

    Though he never made it on The Love Boat, Mr. Buono did manage to board Super Train and land on Fantasy Island. He also browsed The Night Gallery; again tangled with the law on The Mod Squad, Mannix, and Ellery Queen; and generated more than a few laughs on Here’s Lucy, The Odd Couple, and Alice.

    One of his more memorable sitcom turns was on Taxi, playing Reverend Jim Ignatowski’s father, Mr. Caldwell, despite being only 8 months older than Christopher Lloyd. It was a naturally funny, but also sweet role, one that Taxi acknowledged in a later episode. After Victor Buono died of a heart attack in 1982, Reverend Jim’s father did, too.

    Though Victor Buono died tragically early (only 43), we are left with a wealth of guest spots on some great reruns to enjoy. An immortal gift if there ever was one.

    Dina Merrill, an “actress and heiress to two fortunes,” has died at 93, according to an obituary posted by The New York Times.

    Merrill was the daughter of Wall Street stockbroker E.F. Hutton and “cereal heiress” Marjorie Merriweather Post died Monday, according to The Times.

    Her acting credits included the first episode of The FBI, where she played Jean Davis, a woman being stalked by a psychopath played by Jeffrey Hunter; The Controllers, a two-part Mission: Impossible story, where she played a woman operative in the show’s fourth season; an academic manipulated by Wo Fat in the 1976 Hawaii Five-O episode Nine Dragons; and Calamity Jan, the girlfriend of cowboy villain Shame (Cliff Robertson, her then-husband) during the final season of Batman.
    An excerpt from the obituary:

    As a child, born into the American aristocracy of money and high society, Ms. Merrill wished she could take the bus “like the other kids,” she said, instead of being driven to school by the family chauffeur. After she became a successful actress, she told Quest magazine, “It’s fascinating to lead someone else’s life for a while.”

    Merrill also appeared on game shows, such as To Tell The Truth. Here is an example.
