“Lost’s” Daniel Dae Kim is staying in Hawaii with a lead role on CBS’ “Hawaii Five-O” remake.
In CBS’ updated take on the classic cop series, from CBS Studios, Kim will play Detective Chin Ho Kelly, a role played in the original series by Kam Fong.
The part of Detective Steve McGarrett has not yet been cast, though “Moonlight” star Alex O’Loughlin continues to be in talks for it.
The new “Hawaii Five-O” hails from hot feature writers and “Fringe” co-creators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and “CSI: NY” executive producer/co-showrunner Peter Lenkov.
Kim, who played Jin Kwon on “Lost” for its six-season run, is the first actor from the show’s core cast to book a new series project this pilot season as the ABC mystery drama heads to its May finale.
Getting key “Lost” players to do pilots this season is proving tricky as ABC’s drama doesn’t wrap its final season until April. In Kim’s case, it helped that both “Lost” and “Hawaii Five-O” are filming in Hawaii.
He is repped by APA and Lighthouse.
