Jin is back and alive! Indeed, that seemed to be the Comic-Con
fan reaction when actor Daniel Dae Kim came out to promote Hawaii Five-0
. During the panel, he addressed the Lost
finale and his new role as Chin Ho in the remake of the iconic cop series. He was joined by director Len Wiseman
and costar Grace Park
, whose appearance got Battlestar Galactica
fans buzzing. I've already given you a peek
at what to expect from the upcoming Fall series, but here's what they had to add:
- Director Wiseman showed several exclusive clips which were full of high-adrenaline action. Car chases, vans barreling through buildings, explosions — the footage felt more like a movie than a TV show, which is thanks to Wiseman's big-screen sensibility. In fact, this is the first time he's ever ventured into television.
- Park is actually playing Kona in Hawaii Five-0 — a role that was originally played by a man. It's not the first time she's taken on a guy's part (her character in Battlestar was also male first). Park responded that she feels like it's just a sign of the times, and more roles are open to women now other than just "a wife, mother, or prostitute."
- The film's producers assured the audience that the show would satisfy every kind of TV watcher. They promise a new case every week, but there will also be a big mystery revealed over the course of the series for those viewers who stay loyal.
