Off the coast of Oahu, Alex O'Loughlin, the trim, toned and tattooed star of CBS' Hawaii Five-0 reboot, is chopping through the waves like the former Navy SEAL he's been hired to play. His perfectly sculpted six pack glistens as he emerges on the shore wearing nothing but taut navy trunks. "I think we just shot what is going to be the most downloaded scene of Hawaii Five-0," executive producer Peter Lenkov calls out to his crew. "It sort of makes everything I do from here on moot."
You don't need a coconut to hit you on the head to figure out this is not your father's Hawaii Five-0. It's younger, naughtier and definitely more action-packed. Even the core characters - including O'Loughlin's Steve McGarrett - have been reimagined.
Lenkov, who'd overseen CSI: Miami and 24, partnered with Alias and Fringe producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, hoping they could do for the origins of McGarrett, Danny "Danno" Williams, Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua what they did for Kirk and Spock in their 2009 Star Trek prequel.
