O’Loughlin will play Det. Steve McGarrett, the role originally played by Jack Lord.
Let’s hope that the third time is charm for O’Loughlin, whose other two shows have been canceled after the first seasons (even though Moonlight was a big fan favorite and would probably do well now in the Twilight-Vampire Diaries-True Blood world of today!).
The Hawaii Five-0 pilot is under the direction of Fringe writer-producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and CSI: NY executive producer Peter Lenkov, according to EW.
