New film role for Alex O'Loughlin

The apocalypse beckons Films dealing with the apocalypse continue to attract filmmakers. After David Michod's The Rover comes Zak Hilditch's These Final Hours, a lively drama about a man confronting what really matters in the few hours before the world ends, which opens next week. And George Miller has been finishing Mad Max: Fury Road, which is out in May. Nathan Phillips, who stars in These Final Hours, plans to direct his own post-apocalyptic film, Hadean, set in Australia in 2050. “It’s kind of like The Fifth Element meets Star Wars,” he said. Hadean is an adaptation of Phillips' short film Post Apocalyptic Man. “I’ve got so many fabulous friends who are going to be in it like Thomas Wright, Angus Sampson, Alex O'Loughlin and Travis Fimmel," he says. "A lot of good Melbourne boys who’d love to come home.” Read more: Thanks to Five-0 Undercover for the heads up!

Hawaii Five-0 Scoop: Who is Returning?

by Jim Halterman at December 11, 2013 2:07 pm. Updated at December 11, 2013 2:31 pm. Looks like Nick Jonas is booking a return trip to Hawaii Five-0. TV Fanatic has learned exclusively that the singer/actor - who appeared in Hawaii Five 0 Season 4 Episode 8 - is coming back in the new year. Jonas appeared last month as Ian Wright, a computer hacker who escaped the clutches of our 5-0 team. (TV Fanatic was in Hawaii for the shooting of that episode and was the only online outlet on set to talk to Jonas.) "He's coming back in the finale," Executive Producer Peter Lenkov revealed to me this morning. "He was great and he is such a good kid. You imagine a kid who has that much success...he's just a really, really good kid." Details of the story involving Jonas's return are being kept under wraps, but the series has been doing a bang-up job with guest stars this season, including Lost alum Henry Ian Cusick and a Thanksgiving visit from Carol Burnett. Lenkov also talked about what's coming for the series in 2014, such as Grace Park's return, Melanie Griffith's guest arc as mother to Scott Caan's Danny and more. Check back Friday for that story and remember you can watch Hawaii Five-0 online right here on TV Fanatic.

"Five-O" airing episode about Japanese interments in World War II

"Five-O" airing episode about Japanese interments in World War II By RICH HELDENFELS Published: December 3, 2013 A note from series co-star Daniel Dae Kim arrived today. The textt: Dear Television Reporter: Networks often talk about "very special episodes," but episode 410 of HAWAII FIVE-0 is deserving of that description. Rarely do police dramas delve into subjects like the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, but this small and shameful chapter in our history is one that reminds us all of a valuable lesson: that we can never measure an American's patriotism solely by their appearance or ancestry. I've never been prouder of HAWAII FIVE-0, and I applaud our producers for tackling a topic that goes beyond a crime of the week. It is my sincere hope that you find this episode, highlighted by some remarkable performances, as special as we do. The episode, titled Ho'onani Makuakane (Honor Thy Father), airs Friday, December 13 at 9:00pm-10:00pm ET/PT on CBS. It was filmed on location at the historic battleship Missouri Memorial and outside the USS Arizona Memorial.

"Mixed martial arts champion Egan Inoue has teamed up with “Hawaii Five-0” star Alex O’Loughlin to teach two days of self-defense seminars for women next weekend at his new Egan’s Fit Body Boot Camp training center in Honolulu. The self-defense seminars will be taught by Inoue and his fitness student O’Loughlin, who plays Steve McGarrett on the CBS television drama. The seminars on Nov. 16-17 mark the grand opening of Inoue’s new 3,000-square-foot Moiliili gym at 2700 S. King St., building A. The price to participate in one of the 90-minute self-defense seminars is $300 per person, and 100 percent of proceeds will directly benefit the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. O’Loughlin has been involved with the expansion of the gym since the get-go, Marcia Inoue recently told PBN. “The neat thing about it is that Alex O`Loughlin from ‘Hawaii 5-0,’ one of my husband’s private lesson students, loves design and architecture, so he spearheaded and designed the whole gym with our input,” she said. Egan’s Fit Body Boot Camp’s new facility replaces Inoue’s former Manoa gym, which outgrew the former 700-sqaure-foot space. Read more about Inoue’s growing business here".
