Peter Fonda an easy glider in ‘Five-0’s’ second season
TV Guide reports that Peter Fonda, a big-screen star (“Easy Rider,” “Ulee’s Gold”), will make a small-screen guest appearance, portraying a murder suspect on CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0” this fall.
Fonda, 71, will surface as a treasure-hunting sea captain out to prey on victims and bilk them out of millions in an episode set for October viewing.
His crime antics will be a menace to Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) and crew.
Part of Hollywood’s legendary and inconic Fonda clan (dad was Henry Fonda, sister is Jane Fonda), he was the centerpiece of the 1969 biker film, “Easy Rider” and only rarely does TV dramas. His most recent tube credit is a guest role on “CSI: New York.”
Fonda is a sometimes visitor to the Islands and is a pal of Barry Flanagan, one of the founders of the pioneering Maui-based Hawaiian duo, Hapa.
Fonda thus adds luster to the Hawaii-filmed procedural drama, outshadowing Terry O’Quinn, Tom Sizemore, William Baldwin, Booker T. Jones and Laura German, all set to be part of story arcs in the sophomore season of “Five-0.”
