“Oh What a Night” it’ll be, when Four Seasons’ main man Frankie Valli, guests on the eighth episode in the fifth season of CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0.”
TV Guide confirms that Valli, the falsetto-voiced icon from one of musicdom’s most popular groups, will portray the fiancé of Deb, played by Carol Burnett, who is the aunt of series star Alex O’Loughlin’s Steve McGarrett character.
As series producer Peter Lenkov tells TV Guide, “They’re going to have this whirlwind romance and they’re coming to Hawaii to get married because they realize both of them don’t have much time left.”
The matrimonial plans will be somewhat clouded when McGarrett discovers some suspicious behavior in Campbell’s past, according to Entertainment Weekly.
No word on whether the incident dates back to “December 1963,” the official title of the pro-drugs song by the Four Seasons aka “Oh What a Night” prominently featured in the Broadway musical based on the lives of Valli and his Seasons as well as the movie version released earlier this year.
“Five-0” debuts at 8 p.m. (9 p.m. Mainland) Sept. 26 and this episode is expected to air Nov. 21.
