[15.20 - French Time] James Marsters will guest as Steve McGarrett's nemesis in the pilot for the 2010 Hawaii Five-O.

The new Five-O stars Alex O'Loughlin (Moonlight, Three Rivers) in the role played by Jack Lord in the original series, aired from 1968 to 1980 on CBS. McGarrett was the boss of a Hawaii State Police elite squad and was only accountable to the Governor.

The classic show is updated for CBS by golden writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (the Transformers franchise, M:I III, Star Trek) and CSI: NY executive producer Peter Lenkov.

In January your humble servant wrote that a character like the recurring archvillain Wo Fat (played by Khigh Dheigh) seems unconceivable today in our politically correct world. And Marsters is very good but can he make a convincing big chinese agent?

A 24 type terrorist mastermind, maybe?
