Scott Caan is Danno in Hawaii Five-O


Scott Caan (“Ocean’s Eleven” films) has landed the role of Danny “Danno” Williams on CBS’ “Hawaii Five-O.” The show comes from CBS Studios, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Peter Lenkov.

The updated version centers on an elite branch of the Hawaii State Police headed by Steve McGarrett, to be played by Alex O’Loughlin.

Williams, who was played by James MacArthur on the original series, is a New Jersey cop who has recently undergone an acrimonious divorce and has transferred to Hawaii to be near his 7-year-old daughter.

Forced to partner with McGarrett, Danno is initially leery of their association — but as he grows more familiar with his maverick new boss, he begins to appreciate the opportunity to work with McGarrett.
