Jean Smart joins 'Five-0' cast as governor

Advertiser Staff

CBS continues to give its remake of “Hawaii Five-0” a contemporary look, casting Jean Smart as Hawaii Gov. Pat Jameson.

Smart, who was nominated for two Emmys when she appeared on “24,” will play a part held by Richard Denning during the crime drama’s 12-year run.
Smart is the second woman cast for a role once held by a man. Grace Park was cast as Kono Kalakaua, a role once held by Zulu.
Filming for the show’s pilot began today.
