“After his first guest spot, we knew we had something special here with Chi playing Captain Lou Grover,” Executive Producer Peter Lenkov says in a statement. “He just fit seamlessly into the fabric of ‘Hawaii Five-0′ and viewers are enjoying the spirited, if sometimes antagonistic, interaction between him and [Alex O'Loughlin's Steve] McGarrett. We are so thrilled to welcome Chi into our Ohana.”

“Hawaii Five-0″ airs at 9 p.m. Fridays on CBS.
