Craig Roberts for Hawaii Five-0

Brit Actor Craig Robert Young Back in Character For Hawaii Five-O…

No folks, this is not a rehash of an old story, but an interesting twist to a new one…NCIS: Los Angeles fans will be thrilled to know that their favourite baddie Dracul Comescu is alive well and hiding out in Honolulu… Betcha didn’t know that!

     In the last season of NCIS: LA, Comescu, played by British actor Craig Robert Young, was the last surviving member of a corrupt Romanian crime family who escaped the clutches of agents G. Callen (Chris O’Donnell) and Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) after going on the run to Hawaii.

     Cue the Hawaii Five-O theme tune!

     Now, in a clever attempt to capture both audiences NCIS: LA – the number two highest-rated scripted show on U.S television has teamed up with hit series Hawaii Five-O, bringing back Dracul Comescu with a plot involving a virus outbreak which will potentially be weaponized. And beyond telling you that, my lips are super-glued!

     O’Donnell and Cool J (inset pic) will appear on “Five-O” for one episode, while in a separate episode, Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim-pictured) and Danny Williams (Scott Caan) will star on “NCIS.”

     The crossover occurs over two episodes in late April thru early May, during sweeps week when networks collect data on a shows’ popularity and determine its future.

     Show-runner Peter Lenkov revealed that the characters are already familiar with each other: “Chris and LL are going to come to Hawaii . . . There’s a bit of history there.”

     Craig Robert Young’s popular character is sure to get his comeuppance on “Five-O” and finally viewers will see this nail-biting saga come to and end once and for all… Or will they?

     Young’s spokesperson, Louisa Spring confirmed, “Yes, Craig is returning to the role and the script is amazing, but I can’t say anymore than that.”

Soon after its debut […]

    Samba, spring break and sunshine just too much in Miami Beach

    By John Hiscock The Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach has a starry history as the place where Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack liked to party, where the Black Tuna drug cartel ran their operations from a luxury suite in the 1970s and where scenes from Scarface, Goldfinger, The Bellboy and A Hole in the Head, among other movies, were filmed. But now? After a one billion dollar renovation, the addition of two new towers and four swimming pools, the […]

    Tipping points and canine pointers…

    Greetings Breeps!  Our ever-growing Facebook page has been humming this week with questions on subjects as diverse as pet insurance, tax time and etiquette of tipping in LA. I’ll tackle the last one first having some experience having been in the service area quite a number of times ‘in-between’ acting jobs. Why do we tip certain professions and not others? Why are we having to subsidize the tight proprietors who don’t pay their staff properly? Why do I tip my […]

    Meet a Member: Catherine Siggins, originally from Ireland, who moved to Los Angeles three years ago because ‘the thought of taking a beach walk on New Year’s Day seemed enticing to me.’ Was there a particular reason you chose LA? I’d lived in London for 11 years, which I had loved, but felt that moving to New York would have been swapping one urban obstacle course for another.
