CBS is apparently determined to keep Alex O’Loughlin working for them as word has it he’s being considered to headline the upcoming remake of Hawaii Five-O.  O’Loughlin previously worked for the Eye on both the vampire drama Moonlight and transplant drama, Three Rivers, both of which were expeditiously canceled within the last couple of years. Fringe honchos Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci and CSI: NY’s Peter Lenkov are shepherding this remake.  The original ran on CBS from 1968 to 1980 and featured Jack Lord as Det. Steve McGarrett.
