A True Blood Star Will Vacation on Hawaii Five-0

Chris Bauer.

Hawaii Five-0 is starting to turn into something of a destination for actors from supernatural-tinged TV shows. Daniel Dae Kim has been with the rebooted series since the start, and this season has been joined by fellow Lost-ie Terry O'Quinn. Now Vulture hears a regular from HBO's True Blood is planning to spend some of his hiatus time in the Five-0. Specifically, we can report that Bon Temps sheriff Andy Bellefluer's alter ego, actor Chris Bauer, has signed on for an upcoming episode of the CBS Monday night crime drama. He'll play the manager of an off-shore oil rig who finds himself coming face-to-face with Danny and McGarrett when one of his men is murdered. (No word yet on whether the crime is V-related.) In addition to Bauer and O'Quinn, Five-0 has been loading up notable names for its guest gigs this season: Billy Baldwin begins an arc on tonight's episode, while Tom Sizemore, Jimmy Buffett, Robert Englund, and Peter Fonda are all set to visit the island in coming months.
