  • It’s pretty much a given that every Asian actor in Hollywood will end up on Five-0 eventually. Still, I’m looking forward to this.

  • I’m very excited to see George Takei appearance. But as the story goes aren’t Chin & Kono (Grace Park) cousins so wouldn’t Takei’s character be her Uncle too?

    • Maybe he’s from the other side of Chin’s family?

  • Would it have been overboard if he were playing Max’s father instead?
