On Monday, CBS announced that ‘Private Practice’ alum Tim Daly will be catching a wave on the hit drama ‘Hawaii Five-0,’ as a guest-star in an upcoming Season 4 episode.
Daly joins ‘Five-0’ as a Texas Ranger in search of his missing daughter. So far, he’s only been slated for one episode, but there is potential for his character to recur. Hopefully, Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin), Danny (Scott Caan) and the rest of the gang can lend Daly’s character a helping hand.
As Daly fans know, this isn’t his first rodeo when it comes to TV. He’s appeared on ‘The Nine,’ ‘Eyes,’ ‘The Sopranos,’ ‘The Fugitive’ and of course the ‘90s comedy ‘Wings.’
Daly isn’t the only actor joining the CBS drama this season. Once again the series, which originated in 1968, is resurrecting a character from the original series. SWAT Captain Lou Grover, played by ‘Boston Public’s Chi McBride, transfers from Chicago to Hawaii and is not really a fan of Five-0’s tactics. It sounds like there will be tension between Grover and the Five-0 team.
In addition to McBride, a ‘Lost’ reunion is also happening, with Jorge Garcia and Henry Ian Cusick appearing alongside fellow ‘Lost’ alum Daniel Dae Kim (he plays Five-0 agent Chin Ho Kelly). Look for Garcia to play a brilliant conspiracy theorist, while Cusick will appear as Ernesto, a ruthless leader of a terrorist group called the ‘National Liberation Movement,' who will show up in the Season 4 premiere. Ernesto will not be on the good side of Five-0. There is potential for Cusick’s character to return for more episodes, especially if the series brings him back as a recurring villain.
Catch the ‘Hawaii Five-0’ Season 4 premiere in its new timeslot on Friday, Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. EST.
