Ed Asner to Guest Star on 'Hawaii Five-0' in the Spring

Multiple Emmy Award winner Ed Asner ("Mary Tyler Moore," "Lou Grant") will guest star on HAWAII FIVE-0 in the Spring. Asner will reprise his role of August March, a character he played in an episode of the original "Hawaii Five-0" in 1975, called "Wooden Model of a Rat."

In a first for the series, footage from the 1975 episode featuring Asner and his character's backstory will be used, showing him as an up-and-coming world class smuggler. Now a reformed man after serving 30 years in prison for murder, March lives on O'ahu and is approached by the Five-0 to assist on a smuggling case.

"It is thrilling to, for the first time, merge the original 'Hawaii Five-0' and our new show by having the classic, versatile and award-winning actor Ed Asner reprise his role of August March, a character Mr. Asner first played 36 years ago. There is no better way to form a bridge between our reboot and the original series," said Executive Producer Peter Lenkov. HAWAII FIVE-0, now in its second season, stars Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park and Masi Oka and airs Mondays (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
