When negotiating for the salary you deserve, sometimes you have to be prepared to walk away. Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park did just that when they announced they’d be leaving the CBS series “ Hawaii Five-0 ” earlier this week.
CBS announced on Friday that the Hawaii Five – 0 season 10 finale will now be a two-hour series finale, ending the popular TV crime drama after almost 250 episodes. Some say that the show hasn’t been the same since Daniel Dae Kim (who portrayed Chin Ho Kelly) and Grace Park (who played Kono Kalakaua) exited in 2017.
Hawaii Five -0 will end its run with its original stars Alex O ‘Loughlin as McGarrett and Scott Caan as Danno. I hear both of their current contracts are up at the end of this season. O ‘Loughlin suffered a serious back injury during the early seasons of the show, and has been dealing with effects from it ever since.
The 43-year-old revealed why in a 2015 interview. “I do five episodes less than Alex. I just do a couple episodes less so I can come home to see my family and stuff,” the Los Angeles resident, who shoots the show in Hawaii , explained to TV writer Rob Owen.
He shoots Danny , who is immediately rushed to the hospital by the entire Five – 0 team. With Danny’s life hanging in the balance, a despairing McGarrett, who’s been dealing with parental ghosts and an existential crisis all season, goes to the chapel but can’t find solace there.
Industry sources said O’Loughlin and Caan are making about $200,000 per episode apiece for the upcoming eighth season of the show, produced by CBS Television Studios.
Production has begun on another of CBS’ scripted procedurals for the 2020 -2021 season. Magnum P.I. kicked off its third season with a traditional Hawaiian blessing in honor of its host’s culture in Kapolei, Oahu on Wednesday. The safety protocols in place for the ceremony were consistent with the ones set for filming.
Is Scott Caan married? Caan isn’t married, but he does have a long-time partner, Kacy Byxbee . She gave birth to the couple’s first child, a daughter named Josie James, in 2014.
He had starring roles in the films Oyster Farmer (2004) and The Back-up Plan (2010), as well as on such television series as Moonlight (2008) and Three Rivers (2009).
