Lost’s Daniel Dae Kim to Stay in Hawaii – UPDATE

The Hollywood Reporter is…well…reporting that Daniel Dae Kim (Lost‘s Jin Kwon), has been cast in a starring role in the CBS update of Hawaii Five-O. Kim will play Detective Chin Ho Kelly, originally portrayed by Kam Fong. Kelly’s partner, Detective Steve McGarrett, has not yet been cast, although rumors abound that the versatile “Smokey” is up for the role. Says a certain B. Linus, “Smokey is great; he really can transform himself into anyone he wants.”

UPDATE: It has been confirmed that CBS darling Alex O’Loughlin (Three Rivers, Moonlight) will play Detective Steve McGarrett on the new remake of Hawaii Five-O. He will join the previously announced Daniel Dae Kim on the CBS series.
