It's Tom Sizemore Vs. the Hawaii Five-0 Team!

Film vet Tom Sizemore has been tapped to get in the Hawaii Five-0 team’s face this coming season.

Specifically, the vet of such films as Black Hawk Down and the award-winning Saving Private Ryan will appear in multiple episodes as a transplanted Detroit Homicide Detective who is now in charge of the Hawaii police department’s Internal Affairs division, EW.com reports. As such, he will be tasked with investigating the messy events of the season finale, including the discovered stolen police money and the governor’s murder (seemingly at McGarrett’s hand).

Exclusive: Hawaii Five-0 Promotes Masi Oka

Sizemore — whose recent TV credits include Starz’s Crash and TNT’s Southland — joins Lost alum Terry O’Quinn as new faces joining the CBS drama for its sophomore run. As TVLine reported last week, O’Quinn will play a Navy SEAL Lt. Commander who trained McGarrett.

    I remember Tom when he starred in Robbery Homicide Division on CBS but the gritty crime drama run short lived. Guess CBS gives him a second chance and probably kill the series or perhaps the ratings.

    • George says:

      He was awesome in Robbery Homicide Division. Hopefully Exits Strategy pilot he was in get picked up as midseason replacement. I recently finished watching all 13 episodes for the third time. I got tell you Broadcast no loger makes ambitious/authentic crime drama anymore. Seeing how the NBC law and order franchise is close to death. NBC under CEO Greenblat direction could become the new home of Ambitious/Authentic crime drama. currently there are only three optons:

    Wasn’t tom in the movie” the big chill” now that’s a great movie

    Why would you give a multi episode arc to a drug addict?

    • chilacher says:

      Previous drug addict or not he still has the right to be employed if they have faith that after all of his prior set backs that he is clean and will be reliable.

    • Lena120 says:

      The same reason you’d bite the bullet and hire Robert Downey Jr. to play Iron Man. It’s called recovery and good faith. If the person is talented enough there are still some producers you are willing to go out on a limb for you. No matter his background Tom is a great actor. He always has been and if this is part of his road to redemption I’m all for it. I have no problem supporting people who are trying to make a positive change.

    Odd choice.

  5. Bob says:

    Is this part of his rehab? How did they get insurance on him?

    • Amy says:

      Probably it’s much easier to insure somebody in a recurring role (which could be dropped without dramatically changing the show, at any time) than as a regular.

  6. Peter says:

    Man, they sure are adding a lot of white people to the cast for a show that takes place in a state where they are the minority.

    Congrats to Tom, though. He’s a great actor and deserves this chance.

  7. Jeff says:

    I hope he’s finally cleaned up because he’s a good actor and an excellent choice as an antagonist to keep the show cookin’.

  8. Suncatcher says:

    Why the heck do we need yet another cast member??? This is getting not only nuts, but it’s time for me to just change the channel.

    NCIS did the same dumb thing this season – especially with their clogged up finale arc that just would never end! Why do we need an entirely new team that adds so many subplots that you cannot tell what’s happening without a slide rule and a sundial!

    DUMB. Click.

  9. Pat Brown says:

    Not a fan, so not looking forward to seeing him in what was an excellent series. If he is in it long enough before he goes off the wagon again, he will probably ruin it.

  10. Linderella says:

    This guy has had more chances than Robert Downey, Jr. who eventually got the message when he did a year in jail. Sizemore doesn’t seem quite so smart (and in my view, not as talented). Aren’t there other, more stable, actors who could do fit this role? CBS must have this thing for volatile actors or just miss Charlie Sheen.

  11. forrest says:

    With the vacancy of the Governor, isn’t there room for additional cast memembers, not just another Governor? Obviously, this will expand the stories that can be told. The season finale was such an abrupt change in the foundation of the series, hopefully the chain of events that follows will not be wrapped up in one episode. These new characters insure an evolving storyline that will stretch beyond a single episode wrapup. I’m for it.

  12. Vegas Cowgirl says:

    I Love Tom Sizemore! He’s a very talented actor and my girlfriends and I can’t wait to watch him on “Hawaii Five-0”! I can’t believe someone would make such an ignorant comment as to “why would anyone hire a drug addict”. What a Loser! You go Tom! All of us positive, mature people love you!
