Takei’s Strange Five-0 Find

1 min read

In preparing for his role on the new Hawaii Five-0, George Takei found something a bit creepy.

Takei will appearing in Five-0 thirty-seven years after appearing as a cop in the original Hawaii Five-O (1975’s Death’s Name is Sam episode). In the new episode, airing December 17th, Takei will play Chin Ho Kelly’s (Daniel Dae Kim) Uncle Choi.

“[Choi’s] doing something illegal, not unlike the character I played in the ’70s,” said Takei.

Learning how to speak with an authentic Hawaiian accent was part of the job for Takei, but what the actor found in a rented run-down shack used in Choi’s home was not. Takei found “an NRA magazine, a photo of a blond Aryan youth and a portrait of Mr. Adolf Hitler! It was weird!”

Hawaii Five-0 airs Monday nights on CBS at 10 PM.
