According to casting sources, Lost's Sawyer, Josh Holloway, was originally considered for the lead role in Hawaii Five-0, which ultimately went to Australian charmer Alex O’Loughlin (Moonlight, Three Rivers). I’m told producers didn’t want two former Losties on the series, so after DDK was cast, Holloway was no longer in contention.
But he can still guest star, right?
You can hear what DDK has to say about his pal Holloway, plus his insight on his new gig, and further credence that Daniel Dae Kim is quite honestly the most grounded/likeable Hollywood actor you’ll ever meet (pinky swear) in this exclusive video clip from the Five-0 set.
Kristen suggests that Sawyer and Miles work with the Hawaii Five-0 team. Yes please! Or better yet, let them team up with Emerson and O’Quinn!
