(new) Hawaii Five-0 on CBS

the new Hawaii Five-0 on CBS


The Hawaii Five-0 team is having an Academy Award winner over for Thanksgiving dinner.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Louis Gossett Jr. is set to guest-star in a Season 9 episode that is set around the November holiday, playing the father of Chi McBride’s Lou Grover.

A new member of the Writers Guild, McBride in fact wrote the Thanksgiving-themed episode, as first reported by TVLine.

“That’s a big deal for us,” showrunner Peter M. Lenkov affirmed. “Chi called me up and said, ‘I have this thing…,’ and I said, ‘Write it!’ We met a couple of times and he turned in a great script.”

Gossett Jr.’s recent TV credits include Hap and Leonard, Extant and episodes of The Good Fight and Madam Secretary. In addition to the Oscar he won for An Officer and a Gentleman, his mantle also boasts a pair of Golden Globes (including one for the TV-movie The Josephine Baker Story) and a Primetime Emmy Award (for the 1977 Roots miniseries).

He also will have a role in Damon Lindelof’s recently greenlit Watchmen series for HBO, where he is speculated to be playing Old Man.

Hawaii Five-0‘s season-opening redo of the original series’ pilot will reveal a new — and now vexing — bit of McGarrett’s romantic past.

TVLine has learned that Mistresses alum Rochelle Aytes has been cast on the CBS procedural in the recurring role of Greer, a sharp, smart and calculating CIA operative who was once romantically involved with McGarrett. Now, though, Greer is described as “dangerous and not to be trusted.”

Aytes will make her debut in the Season 9 premiere (airing Friday, Sept. 28), which as a means of commemorating the franchise’s 50th anniversary will offer its own take on the original Five-O‘s two-part pilot, which was titled “Cocoon.”

“A character named Greer was introduced in that first episode, and she had a relationship with McGarrett ‘back in the day,’ when he was in uniform,” showrunner Peter M. Lenkov told TVLine as part of our in-depth Fall Preview Q&A. As portrayed by Aytes on today’s Five-0, “She’s going to be a Big Bad in the first couple of episodes.”

In addition to her run on ABC’s Mistresses, Aytes’ TV credits include Designated Survivor, Criminal Minds, The Forgotten and Drive.
