McGarrett and Danno drop in on Morimoto

February 17th, 2011

Fish and karaoke were the unlikely menu items at Morimoto’s, the chic and trendy restaurant at the Waikiki Edition Hotel, when “Hawaii Five-0” taped a segment there today (Feb. 17).
The fish in question housed a bullet, evidence sought by Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and Danny “Danno” Williams (Scott Caan t), in a scene from CBS’ hit procedural drama, set to air March 21.
Karaoke was rendered by Iron Chef Morimoto — Masaharu Morimoto, of the Food Network’s “Iron Chef” show — who landed a guest role. His song? “What a Wonderful World.”
In the context of the show, Morimoto — who plays himself — went al dente, dispensing rehearsals to turn in a natural and honest interpretation as a karaoke-loving kitchen wizard interrupted by McGarrett & Co.
"I'm not an actor. I'm not a singer, so I have to do it natural,” Morimoto told Hawaii News Now.
During pauses in filming, O’Loughlin — arm in a sling — mingled with adoring fans pooside.
Happily, there was no sighting of Wo Fat, McGarrett ’s arch nemesis on "Five-0," played by Mark Dacascos, who happens to be The Chairman on “Iron Chef.”
"Hawaii Five-0" airs at 9 p.m. Mondays on KGMB9.
