Book 'em, Danno!

Generally speaking, I am against TV shows and movies being remade. Most of time, these remakes suck ass, and not in a good way. (Occasionally, a remake will be better than it's original, but those are few and far between.) That aside, I am against them on general principals alone: Hey, Hollywood, come up with some new ideas.

All of which is to say, Daniel Dae Kim has signed on to CBS' Hawaii Five-0 remake, due this fall. Good for Daniel!

On a slightly less-exciting note

The part of Detective Steve McGarrett has not yet been cast, though Moonlight star Alex O'Loughlin continues to be in talks for it
because, yeah, what the world really needs is another show with a white dood in the lead. I'd have rather seen Kim in the lead, but maybe our post-racial world just ain't ready for that yet.
