As reported by TV Guide Magazine, Richard T. Jones (of TV’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) has landed the recurring role of the man who was Lt. Governor to Jean Smart’s ill-fated politico, Pat Jameson. With the Hawaii honcho killed during the Season 1 finale, he claims the plum gig — but will keep a tighter leash on McGarrett and the Five-0 team. “[He’ll be] cleaning up a lot of the mess left by the previous administration,” an insider tells the mag.

Jones is no stranger to wrangling strong personalities, having dogged Lena Headey’s Sarah Connor on Fox’s short-lived T:SCC, where he played an FBI agent. His other previous TV credits include Girlfriends, Judging Amy, and guest spots on Bones and Grey’s Anatomy.

The second season of Five-0 premieres Monday, Sept. 19. Other new additions include Lost‘s Terry O’Quinn (as McGarrett’s old Navy SEAL instructor) and Tom Sizemore (playing an IA investigator who gets up in Five-O’s grill).

    Awe-some! I love me some Bruce from Judging Amy. And he was great on Terminator. He will, no doubt about it, rock the 5-0, too. Sweet casting news.
