Masi Oka talks Season 3 of Hawaii Five-0, debuting Monday, September 24 at 10 PM ET on CBS
I recently had the chance to speak with actor Masi Oka for his new indie comedy Searching for Sonny, arriving in limited theaters, Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD August 28. We also talked about his role as Dr. Max Bergman on the hit CBS series Hawaii Five-0, returning for Season 3 Monday, September 24 at 10 PM ET with "La O Na Makuahine". He revealed that Max will be walking with a cane this season.
"It's a lot of fun, the things we've been doing. There are always these great characters, with great action and scenery. Max is a little off as well. We see him on a cane, which has been a really interesting thing to deal with. There are things you don't think about like, 'OK, I have to hold books in both hands, but I have to be on a cane.' There are all these things that come up. I was also told some things about the character that are coming down the line, but I can't reveal yet. I'm very excited though. The other thing is we have the premiere on the beach, on September 23, for all the locals and fans of the show."
Last season, the show debuted a crossover episode with NCIS: Los Angeles cast members. When asked if he has heard about any future crossover, he revealed his own pitch, and a fantastic idea he had for an intriguing Heroes promotion when it was on the air.
"No, I haven't. Personally, I'd love to do a crossover with The Big Bang Theory. I just think it would be funny to see that crossover. I don't think it will ever happen. The network has balls to do that, and that's what I love. It's those tongue-and-cheek moments that are great. Actually, on Heroes, I actually pitched a 'Where's Hiro?' week, where I would be an extra on every NBC show. I thought that would be fun. We were talking about doing crossovers, and it would be fun if he literally just teleported to different shows."
