Who Did Hawaii Five-O Elect as Governor?

at . Comments

Richard T. Jones has been tapped to fill the vacant role of Governor on Hawaii Five-O.

Following the killing of Jean Smart's character (below) on the CBS drama's first season finale, a key spot was left open on the series. TV Guide Magazine reports that it's been filled by the former Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles star.

Yeap, i do agree with Kailua comment. The elected governor should look or even be Hawaiian to present more realistic.


What a stupid choice! The former gov, Lingle, was a haole woman, so Jean Smart made some sense, despite her Southerness. The new gov is a haole dwarf. A big black man doesn't make sense--a big Hawaiian man, like Mufi does--but just because the US elected a sort-of-black-sort-of-black president doesn't mean the islands would follow suit. Why not a local--or at least local LOOKING guy? Sheesh!
