Video: HAWAII FIVE-0 Star Daniel Dae Kim Says Aloha to Canada

Before actor Daniel Dae Kim took to the stage to dish on HAWAII FIVE-0 — one of Global TV’s most popular imports — he took to the Shaw media press room to face the nation (of TV Critics) to dish on his affinity for Hawaii, what fans can expect from season season four and what differentiates HAWAII FIVE-0 from the rest of CBS’ primetime lineup. See for yourself, after the jump. [Read more...]

Photo of the Day: Nice Work If You Can Get It!

With television talent both in front and behind the camera making a habit of tweeting photos ranging from spoilerific to hilarious, theTVaddict.com thought it might be fun to introduce a new feature to the site that we’ve not-so-cleverly decided to call “Photo of the Day.” Today’s subject, courtesy of HAWAII FIVE-0 star Daniel Dae Kim (@danieldaekim) comes a peak behind-the-scenes of the hit CBS series. Tweeted Kim, “How Grace Rolls.”

Ask the Addict: Spoilers for SHAMELESS, PRIVATE PRACTICE, GCB, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, HAWAII FIVE-0 & More!

Last Sunday’s penultimate SHAMELESS of the season was off the hook! Any idea if we’ll ever see Ian’s very-random hook-up again? — Nick
The TV Addict: Funny you should ask, because we just so happened to have finished watching Sunday’s fantastic second season finale and can assure you that Ian’s one night stand doesn’t just come back to haunt him, but does so in a way we didn’t — but probably should have — seen coming. Cooler still, unlike the SHAMELESS’ first season, which ended on somewhat of a cliffhanger, Sunday’s second season ends on more of a positive note for those already dreading the interminable nine month wait until Season three.

Any word on when poor Erica will finally kick the bucket on PRIVATE PRACTICE? — Jenn
The TV Addict: While we’re hesitant to pinpoint an exact end date for poor Erica and the nightmarish time spent on PRIVATE PRACTICE this season, we can let you in a little something interesting courtesy of a source close to production. In the upcoming fifth season finale, a character will, in a court of law no less, be accused of “pulling a Kevorkian!” Read into that what you will.

Are Barney and Quinn seriously going to move in with one another on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER? — Dylan
The TV Addict: Yes. And it’s gonna be Legen… wait for it…. Oh, who are we kidding! The only thing we’re sure of when it comes to what the future holds for HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER is that when the show finally does return from its traditional hiatus (March Madness, indeed), it will do so with an episode that has all the trappings of one destined to become a classic. After-all, nothing says Legen… wait for it… Dary like an episode that sees Ted, Marshall and Barney embark on another “trilogy time” in which they get together every three years to watch the “Star Wars” trilogy and envision what their lives will be like in another three years.

Ask the Addict: Spoilers for BONES, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, HAWAII FIVE-0, ONCE UPON A TIME & More!

So excited for tonight’s return of BONES. Even more excited for what’s rumored to be an Emmy-worthy episode for David Boreanaz. Anything you care to tease? — Nancy
The TV Addict: As much as I’d love to be able to tease the heartbreaking circumstances that come crashing down on Booth in tonight’s episode that afford David Boreanaz an opportunity to deliver one of his most emotionally impactful performances to date, we’re afraid that to do so would pretty much spoil the episode’s most shocking moment. Cue obligatory ambiguous tease that goes a little something like so: This time, it’s personal.

With all the buzz surrounding Booth, I’m curious if there is anything for us Brennan fans in tonight’s episode of BONES? — Jenn
The TV Addict: Oddly enough, tonight’s episode does an excellent job of highlighting a handful of positives as a result of Brennan’s decreased workload due to Emily Deschanel’s real-life pregnancy. One of which has to do with a hilarious anatomy lesson that Brennan gives Squintern Clark, while another is the return of the always welcome Tina Majorino as Booth’s sidekick Agent Shaw.

Any HAWAII FIVE-0 Scoop? — Jake
The TV Addict: Do you happen to be the parent of a teenager who bares a striking resemblance to a young Alex O’Loughlin? If so the Producers of HAWAII FIVE-0 want to hear from you! Okay, they don’t really want to hear from you, that said, sources have confirmed that they are searching for a young man to play a 16-year old version of McGarrett for a pivotal upcoming episode that will shed some very welcome light on McGarrett’s relationship with his super secretive father. [Read more...]

Ask the Addict: Spoilers for TRUE BLOOD, THE FINDER, SHAMELESS, HAWAII FIVE-0, WHITE COLLAR & More!

TRUE BLOOD’s return is sooooo close I can taste it! Any scoop to tied me over? — Rachel
The TV Addict: Well, since Michael Ausiello already beat us to the punch with regards to the same-sex shocker, and we sure as heck aren’t about to spoil the identity of Bon Temps newest Real Estate baron, we’ll simply leave fans with two tantalizing words to tide you over until the show’s June 26 return: Think LOST.

Any word on what fans can expect from the second season of HAWAII FIVE-0? — David
The TV Addict: Taking the literal approach to answering your question, “Romance” would probably be the one word we’d choose to sum up the start of HAWAII FIVE-0′s second season. Particularly because the show’s Producers (or perhaps Network Bigwigs) have seemingly decided that if you can’t beat ‘em — them of course referring to timeslot competitor CASTLE — you might as well join ‘em. Which is to say, fans should brace themselves for a little island lovefest as Producers begin their search for a thirty-something bombshell to play Alex O’Loughlin’s part-time love interest, full-time Homeland Security Officer Lori Wilson, a character that sources describe as a female McGarrett.

Ridiculously excited for FALLING SKIES. Especially curious as to what the aliens beef is with us poor humans. Any clues? — Jay
The TV Addict: Funny story actually. During our recent visit to the set of the upcoming ABC/Global TV series COMBAT HOSPITAL, we happened to lunch with someone intimately involved with FALLING SKIES which coincidentally enough shot many of their scenes on the very same lot. Much to our surprise, said source was perhaps a little too excited about what’s in store for FALLING SKIES fans, to the point where he actually went as far as to reveal how the season ends! And while we’re not about to spoil that gem, we will say that those pesky arachnid-style aliens who come down to earth to enslave humanity’s youth… well, they might just be the least of the planet’s problems.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES! CASTLE! HAWAII FIVE -0! Our TV Addict Week in Rewind

Emmy-Worthy Performance That Will Never Be Acknowledged: With this week’s episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, Ian Somerhalder proved yet again that while the Emmy voters may scoff, some of the best acting on television takes place on “genre’” programming.

Saddest Death: NBC’s corporate logo is dropping the beloved peacock in favor of… um, purple?

Biggest Letdown that we probably should have seen coming: After weeks of teasing HAWAII FIVE-0 fans that “this is the one wave you don’t want to ride,” Sunday’s post-Football crisis was averted when the TERRIFYING KILLER TSUNAMI THAT WAS MERE MOMENTS FROM DESTROYING ALL OF HAWAII turned out to be nothing more than a fake-out contrived by a criminal to create a diversion.

Idea We’d Most Like To Encourage: ABC is considering the return of it’s Friday night block of family-friendly comedies. We’ve had the STEP BY STEP theme in our head ever since hearing the news.

Good News, Bad News: WICKED, GLEE & HAWAII FIVE-0

Good News: ABC has given the green light to an eight-hour miniseries based on Wicked. Bad News: Not the musical version (of which Universal already holds the rights to) but rather the Gregory Maquire besteller on which the Broadway musical was based upon. Worse News: Becki Newton, who let’s face it, was born to play “Ga-linda,” is unfortunately unavailable as a result of her commitment to an NBC series that has yet to even be given an airdate. LOVE BITES indeed. [Source]
