Hawaii Five-O has added another actor to its growing cast. Terrence Howard, who recently starred in the film Red Tails, will appear on an upcoming episode.
Hawaii Five-O is hitting the ground running. The upcoming third season will be chock-full of notable guests, including an Academy Award nominee. Terrence Howard will appear in an episode in which he spends some quality time with Scott Caan‘s Danny Williams.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Howard won’t travel to the island, but he’ll get plenty of screen time. His character will appear in a series of flashbacks linked to Danny’s New Jersey past. Prior to Danny’s move, he did a stint on the Newark, N.J., police force. It’s a fact he rarely lets anyone forget — specifically McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin).
The clash of his East Coast sensibility and McGarrett’s laid-back demeanor is one of the show’s staples.
From what we hear, Howard’s character and Danny aren’t best buds, which makes us wonder: Why are they exploring their relationship now? Something must be up. We love any opportunity to learn more about the characters, so bring it on!
Aside from Howard, Christine Lahti has snagged a recurring role as McGarrett’s not-so-dead mother. Ed Asner will return as master thief August March, and Kardashian sibling Kendall Jenner will make her acting debut this season.
Lahti will appear on the premiere episode Sept. 24., while Howard and Jenner will air sometime in October.
