Hawaii Five-0 Scoop: Silicon Valley's Martin Starr to Return as Hacker

One of Hawaii Five-0‘s very first guest stars is due for an encore.

Martin Starr, who first appeared in the CBS reboot’s second episode ever, will be reprising his role as Adam “Toast” Charles, an elite hacker who occasionally helps out the Five-0 team. The character most recently surfaced in Season 4.

“Martin is great, and we’ve been following him on Silicon Valley,” where he plays software designer Bertram Gilfoyle, says H50 showrunner Peter M. Lenkov. “Toast is back for big case that requires his hacking skills.”

Starr’s recent TV credits also include episodes of Drunk History, Life in Pieces and NTSF:SD:SUV.

    I didn’t remember he was in the second episode of the show! I think he’s great–definitely a fun, quirky character whenever he’s on. Glad he’ll be back!

      It was the first episode after the pilot so I guess it was a long time coming to have him back.

        Toast was introduced right after the pilot, but Martin has played him on 5-0 several times since then.

      • Maria Quinn says:

        As the article said, he *has* been on since the first season.

        He was also in an S4 episode about the murder of a teenage computer hacker who (if I remember right) accessed some information on a foreign mercenary type group he shouldn’t have. The teen was kidnaped & murdered on the day he got out of juvenile detention for hacking into the White House’s website; he was taken from the family car on the way home & his younger, Autistic brother, whose Autism resulted in his typing on a tablet computer nonstop, was the key to solving the whole case.

        Starr’s H50 character, Adam “Toast” Charles, was used to try to nail the head of a group of hackers who asked the teen to join his group but was turned down, making him an original suspect in the teen’s murder.
