Hawaii Five-0

Mele Kalikimaka! (That's Hawaiian for Merry Christmas). In honor of the holiday, Hawaii Five-0 executive producer Peter Lenkov is giving fans a gift — the introduction of the villainous Wo Fat, Steve McGarrett's archenemy from the original 1968—1980 series.

Just in time for their holiday episode (expect to see Scott Caan's Danny as Santa), Lenkov is planning the return of James Marsters as Victor Hesse, who murdered McGarrett's father in the pilot and, we'll learn, has a connection to Wo Fat. Like he's done with all the characters, Lenkov will give Wo Fat (originally played by Khigh Dheigh) a fresh spin. "There's buzz about Tia Carrere being Wo Fat," Lenkov says. "But we do have a man in mind."
