Book’em, Danno! Norman Reedus Reveals Bad-Guy Role in New ‘Hawaii Five-O’

Norman Reedus will soon be making Alex O’Loughlin‘s life miserable. Real miserable—at least on the little screen.

Interviewed on Milling About, the actor best known for playing Murphy MacManus in the The Boondock Saints franchise tells host Robin Milling exclusively that he’s in CBS’ remake of its classic cop series, Hawaii Five-O.

"It's from the writers of ‘Lost' and we filmed it in Hawaii in that valley where they shot "Jurassic Park' so there was giant dinosaur footprints everywhere," Norman (above) tells us of 'Hawaii Five-O.'

“I’m a bad guy, and I die in the pilot. Or do I?,” says Norman, who has also appeared in such feature flicks as American Gangster and The Notorious Bettie Page.

“I’m an Irishman in Hawaii. The deal in the original show was that [Steve] McGarrett became McGarrett because this one bad guy killed his father and he went back to Hawaii where he was born to track down this one guy and then as the series went on, he solved crime.

“But still, in the back of his mind, he’s looking for this one dude. [In the new series] it’s a brother team of Irishman who murder his father, so he’s looking for us,” continues the model-turned-actor, who has a son, Mingus, with ex-gal pal Helena Christensen.

“I probably pop up like mid-season again—like, did he die or did he not die? You don’t see me die; you see me dying so in the world of television it’s like, ‘Did he really die?'”

The new Hawaii Five-O incarnation co-stars Scott Caan as Danno and Lost‘s Daniel Dae Kim as Chin Ho Kelly.

    Thanks for posting the interview. Really funny quotes in there. And interesting to learn about the genealogy aspect of Norman’s filming in Hawaii.
