    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?

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

    Mr. Takei has my respect for his 442 movie relationship.

    Really, no one has went there yet? Fine. I’ll do it.

    Ohhhhhh My!

    Strangely, in that picture he would look more like Mark Dacascos’ father. (Although I know that was long ago cast).. just saying..
