In the two season history of Hawaii Five-0, there have been a tremendous amount of guest stars so far that have certainly made the individual cases on the island enjoyable. Ed Asner, Diddy, an NCIS: Los Angeles crossover, Terry O'Quinn, James Caan, Autumn Reeser, Dennis Miller and more have all graced the hit crime drama and the third season doesn't look to let up. Asner will return to reprise his original Five-0 role once more, while 24 vet Carlos Bernard will be taking up a major role for the upcoming slate of new episodes. Now, one more who's certainly no stranger to a fair share of action will be gracing the shores as he factors in big time to one of the main characters' pasts.
Ving Rhames has been tapped to play a mysterious man named Billy from Danno's past on the successful remake of the procedural series set in Hawaii. Rhames will play Billy in flashbacks set in New Jersey before Danno arrived on the island and joined the Five-0 team. During the scenes, the series promise that fans of the show will actually get to see "what Danno's made of".
According to the official CBS Twitter feed the battle between the two characters will be "bloody", but they did not confirm whether or not the bloodshed will end up making its way into present day or will stay strictly in the flashbacks. There is also no word as to which episode he will be showing up in this season.
It will be interesting to see what CBS means about seeing what Danny is made of. It's never been a secret that he has a dark past. We've seen it before when it's come back to haunt him. As for the "bloody part", that's no surprise. Fans should expect a very fantastic fight sequence between the two actors.
Ving Rhames is best known for his roles in Pulp Fiction and for appearing in every single film of the Mission Impossible franchise. His last big screen venture was reprising his role in the so-bad-it's-good sequel Piranha 3DD seeking to take some vengeance back on the titular creatures. His appearance on Five-0 will be his first since the cancellation of the short-lived Starz series Gravity in 2010.
Hawaii Five-0 returns September 24th on CBS.
