James Marsters joins ‘Hawaii Five-O’ Pilot

When I first heard Hawaii Five-O was getting the remake treatment I wasn’t that interested. I only vaguely remembered the original series and it was one step closer to rebooting Magnum P.I. (how sacrilegious would will that be?) in my opinion. However, I’ve begun to shift in the other direction regarding this series as more casting news comes out.

The most recent addition is James Marsters. Probably best known as Spike from Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Marsters also played Brianic on Smallville and Barnabas on Caprica.  As exciting as it may be to have him on the new Hawaii Five-O it doesn’t sound like he’ll have a continuing role, at least not yet. Marsters will be in the pilot and appear, “as the nemesis of lead character Jack McGarrett.”

At this point it seems producers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek, Transformers, Fringe) are trying to capture the geek community for the new show.  Marsters joins a cast that encapsulates geek programming; Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost), Jean Smart (24), and Alex O’Loughlin (Moonlight) are already on deck.  With Scott Caan on board as well suddenly Hawaii Five-O is a show I can start to get behind.

    You know, in the beginning, I wasn’t wild about the show being remade, but with the addition of James Marsters, I may actually have to watch it. I originally wasn’t going to just because it was on cbs and whatever I like on cbs is always canceled (MOONLIGHT). I haven’t watched cbs since they went totally insane, but I might have to give this one a try.

    Sounds like they have a very good cast of regulars – pity that James Marsters is again being given the Evil Bad Guy persona – this actor is capable of such much more. And instead of getting all his fans along for just a small amount of time – if he was given a good continuing role, all those fans would stay for the entire series – not just when his guest appearance happens.

    Also, as one of his big fans, I am really getting tired of being given JM carrots when the executive producers want to lure in added numbers –
