Chi McBride to guest on 'Hawaii 5-0'
Hawaii Five-0 historians will appreciate this.
The upcoming fourth season of CBS’s Five-0 will see the addition of SWAT Captain Lou Grover, a character that first appeared in an episode of the original series. And the cherry on top of the good news? He’ll be played by Chi McBride.
McBride will first appear in the season premiere, which airs Sept. 27 and starts shooting today in Hawaii.
“It’s always fun to dig back into Five-0 mythology and resurrect a character — and in this case, Chi McBride plays SWAT Captain Lou Grover,” says executive producer Peter Lenkov. “Recently transferred to Hawaii from Chicago, Grover isn’t easily sold on Five-0’s tactics, referring to the task force as: ‘McGarrett and his merry band of do-whatever-the-hell-they-want.’ What Five-0 does conflicts with Grover’s own style of law enforcement. And that creates good conflict, so prepare for some combustive tension between the two this season.”
McBride, who recently starred on CBS’s Golden Boy, is currently only scheduled to appear in the first episode of the new season but the possibility for more is likely.
