Daniel Dae Kim makes directorial debut on episode of Hawaii Five-O

Production kicks off Tuesday on Kim’s episode, which will feature McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and Danny (Scott Caan) spending some time together while staking out the apartment of a beautiful criminal in order to catch her even more dangerous accomplice. As EW first exclusively revealed, this episode also features Cloris Leachman as a nosy neighbor.

I’ve been looking forward to the opportunity to direct for a long time and I’m glad it’s with Five-0,” Kim says. “Peter Lenkov and the production team have been nothing but supportive, and I’m excited to work with my cast mates in a fresh new way. After working on a show for 100 episodes it’s easy to ‘take your foot off the gas’ a bit, but this has reinvigorated me in a great way.”

Adds EP Lenkov: “We are so thrilled to have Daniel direct this really fun episode. He knows our show inside and out, understands what fans love about Hawaii Five-0 and his creativity will be a welcomed asset. I’m proud he feels comfortable enough to take this leap with his Five-0 ‘ohana.”
