Hawaii Five-0 Producers Finally Determine How Asian Daniel Dae Kim’s Love Interest Can Be

It was the question that had Hawaii Five-0 producers tied up in knots: When casting Daniel Dae Kim's upcoming love interest, would it be okay for him to date outside his race? Apparently, they were able to find a happy compromise, as the show just hired Reiko Aylesworth for the role (like Kim, she's best known for her work on 24 and Lost), and the actress is half Dutch, one-quarter Welsh, and one-quarter Japanese. Something for everyone to like, except for Sun, who will be pissed. [Movieline]
