‘Hawaii Five-O’s’ Scott Caan watches movies but not television

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Just judging from the trailers, the energy and cast chemistry, it seems fairly certain that the new version of “Hawaii Five-O” is going to be a big hit.

Scott Caan plays Det. Danny Williams opposite Alex O’Loughlin who is Set. Steve McGarrett. Lost alum Daniel Dae Kim is Det. Chin Ho Kelly and Grace Park plays Kona Kalakua.

When a group of us chatted with Scott at the TV Critics Association Summer Press Tour, I asked him if he got any tips from his father, James Caan, who had made the transition from films to television in NBC’s “Las Vegas.”

“I’ve never seen an episode of ‘Las Vegas,’” Scott admitted. “I just never have. I watch movies. When I was a kid I did [watch TV]. I know that there’s great television out ther., I keep myself pretty busy so I don’t have a ton of time watch TV. There’s a lot of things I want to do and accomplish. There’s not enough hours in the day to watch TV.”

Well, let’s hope viewers won’t be too busy to watch his show. I don’t think they will.

Scott, whose movies credits include “Ocean’s Eleven” and its two sequels as well as “Into the Blue” and “Friends With Money,” wasn’t easily convinced to do the series even though he had dabbled in television with a recurring role on “Entourage.”
