Terry O’Quinn Headed Back to Island Life on HAWAII FIVE-0

     June 21, 2011


It looks like Lost veteran Terry O’Quinn is going back to the island. Well, it may not be the island, but the actor will be spending time on Hawaii Five-0 in a pivotal recurring role on the series remake. What makes this even more exciting for Lost fans is the new gig will reunite O’Quinn with Daniel Dae Kim who played Jin on the sci-fi castaway series. As for O’Quinn’s role on the show, TV Line says he will play Navy Seal Lt. Commander who trained McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) in Coronado, and served with his father in Vietnam. He’s described as strong, stubborn and a man you want in your corner when things go south. Apparently he also will bring about some answers to long-standing mysteries concerning the murder of McGarrett’s mother and father. I’m glad to have Terry O’Quinn back on TV, but I wish Odd Jobs with him and Michael Emerson would’ve gotten picked up instead of being pushed back to the 2012 development season.
