Local actors get splashy roles on small screen

By Katherine Nichols

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Oct 31, 2008

Two popular television shows this week featured former Hawaii residents. Actor Blake Kushi landed a guest-starring role on ABC's Emmy Award-winning "Pushing Daisies," playing a manager of a Chinese restaurant. Born and raised in Hilo, Kushi graduated from Waiakea High School and received music and theater degrees from the University of Hawaii-Manoa. His background includes improv work and stints at Manoa Valley Theatre, Diamond Head Theatre and Kumu Kahua Theatre. Living in Los Angeles for four years helped Kushi earn gigs on cable TV and a role in a feature film about Bruce Lee. But this was his first network job.

Kushi isn't Chinese, but that "wasn't a problem for me or the director or anyone on the production," he said via phone. "It was a nonissue. The only part that worried me was having lines in Mandarin Chinese." Thankfully, they provided a dialect coach during the six-day shoot in August.

Kushi anticipates this will be a stepping stone for his career. "I'm hoping to build upon this and have a stronger resume so I can be considered for bigger roles."

In the incomprehensibly zany household of Jon and Kate Gosselin, Jon (originally from Hawaii) and Kate prepared to travel to the islands to renew their vows with their twins and sextuplets (nice touch: he wore a kukui-nut lei throughout the episode). And, yes, they needed a bus to get to the airport! Stay tuned for the next installment of "Jon and Kate Plus 8," which airs on TLC. Check listings at ...

How about a reality show that tests your filmmaking and blogging skills -- in two languages? "Aloha Challenge," a seven-episode educational series that premieres at 8 p.m. next Friday on KIKU-TV, starts with eight semi-bilingual college interns. Four hail from Japan; the others are American. To win the grand prize of $10,000 and the title of "Top Producer" in a competition to produce the best blogs and short films about Hawaii, teams must collaborate and communicate while barely speaking each other's languages. High school students also are involved.

"Aloha Challenge" has multicultural, bilingual and multimedia qualities, according to Lorenzo Wyatt, the show's executive producer and host. Wyatt, who lived in Japan for several years and recruited students to come to Hawaii to participate, also wrote an English/kanji curriculum to accompany the show. "If you give students something to do where they have to problem-solve, it means you're going to have to explain things you don't have the language for," Wyatt said. The first episode deciphers the complex game and introduces the players. From then on, personalities and plenty of drama emerge. Said Wyatt: "We could not have gotten a better group of students for this production." Visit ...

I stumbled upon the "Lost" crew filming a New York City scene in downtown Honolulu this week. Taxis were adorned with N.Y.C., and extras wore suits and coats in various shades of gray and black. Stars included Terry O'Quinn (John Locke) and Malcolm David Kelley (Walt) -- together! It got me excited for the new season, which can't come soon enough.

LOST - Season 5 The First Look

Two things stood out to me in the promo:

* Locke looks down to the palm of his hand...and he is holding the compass Alpert brought in his bag of tricks back when Locke was a boy
* Faraday approaches the door to a Dharma station, and someone comes out with a rifle in full bio-hazard gear. Could it be the Swan station? If they traveled back in time, the island may have reverted to it's previous state - which would include all the Dharma folks and people in the stations doing the assigned work.

Love to hear your thoughts. There are several other juicy hints in the promo...what did YOU see???

Lost Actors to Perform For The Honolulu Theatre For Youth

Posted by: docarzt on October 18, 2008 7:02 pm

Five actors from ABC’s hit series “Lost” will perform at a fundraiser for Honolulu Theatre for Youth, a rare group outing for members of the Hawaii-based cast.

Actors Henry Ian Cusick, Michael Emerson, Jorge Garcia, Daniel Dae Kim and Elizabeth Mitchell will perform a scene from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” which is a fall production of the theatre.

The performance is part of HTY’s annual “Le Masquerade” fundraiser, being held Oct. 25 at the Koolau Grand Ballroom in Kaneohe.

“Lost” actors have previously performed to benefit HTY, a professional theatre company founded in 1955 and one of the state’s largest performing arts organizations.

The event is open to the public and information is available at

Abrams Explains the Use of Kelvin in his Projects

They did offer up the origin of the U.S.S. Kelvin's name. Director J.J. Abrams' maternal grandfather was named Henry Kelvin. He owned an electronics company and was very influential to Abrams as a boy. So in honor of him, Abrams has dropped the name "Kelvin" into every project he's worked on. In "Mission: Impossible III," a letter is addressed to "H. Kelvin," and on the first episode of the new series "Fringe" a character worked on a project called "Kelvin Genetics."

Dominic Monaghan Cast in 'Fortuna'

Submitted by Oscar Dahl

Dominic Monaghan had a nice, long run on Lost. His portrayal of Charlie, the heroin-addicted former rock star, was nuanced and integral to the overall Lost mythology, and most fans were very sad to see him go. For an actor, leaving a well-paying consistent job on a popular television show can be difficult, especially for someone like Monaghan, who doesn't possess movie star looks and who will most likely have to spend his career working smaller roles. Dominic has just been cast in a new science fiction film set in the year 2100 called Fortuna. The film takes place in a bleak and depressing future, where climate change and a struggling economy has created a vast chasm between the wealthy and everyone else.

Fortuna is about a game that the wealthy have concocted to give the impoverished hope in the depressing times they live in. In the game Fortuna, one thousand desperate contestants vie to win a spot amongst the wealthy. However, there is more to the game than the participants would like to believe – none of the contestants are ever seen from again, which puts the elite class's goal of reducing poverty by 30% over the next 50 years in a much different light. Dominic Monaghan and Freddie Rodriguez (Six Feet Under) play contestants who enter into the game, despite their skepticism. Barthelemy Grossmann, who wrote the script and will direct, also will portray a contestant. Shooting begins November 10 in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Lost Spoilers - A Momentary Break in Radio Silence

Posted by: docarzt on October 16, 2008 7:10 pm

The sultans of Lost, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, along with stars Rebecca Mader and Nestor Carbonell, broke radio silence in the new TVGuide giving a few very light spoilers concerning the upcoming season. And I do mean LIGHT.

Lookie lookie just below for some Fringe Spoilage

Massive Dynamic's Bionic Woman Drops A Bombshell

We got a chance to chat with Blair Brown, who plays Nina Sharp, the powerful face of the shady corporation Massive Dynamic, on Fringe. After talking to Brown, we were left with even more questions about J.J. Abrams' weird science romp. But most interesting was the tiniest of hints Brown dropped about Nina's past.

Did they always want a woman for the face of Massive Dynamic?

They always wanted a woman. JJ is very interesting that way. He always casts strong women of all ages because he's not afraid of that. It's interesting, people mixing it up.

Will Nina have super strength with her robot hand?

I'm not sure. We're not even sure what else of Nina is bionic, so consider that. Who can say? That's one of the best things about J.J.'s writing and this whole team, is every script you get, you get more questions. Usually when you work on something you get more and more answers and things get narrower and narrower. With Fringe, things get wider and wider.

Of all the things you've read so far working on Fringe, what are you most excited about? What are you most excited to work on?

What I'm most interested is in fact the relationship with the other characters, because there's history there. The character that John Noble [Walter Bishop] plays, he and I knew each other a long time ago. So what is that, and what was that research that was happening then? I think was Nina a scientist. Was she a failed scientist? Was she a scientist that failed because she was a woman? Because she was living in an age where that often happened.

So was she a scientist? What's this history with Walter, are we going to get flashback and explore the origins of Walter and Nina?

You'll have to wait and see. I think that's not impossible. I think that's not impossible. We'll see.

So are we going to explore Nina's past love life?

I think that's not impossible, we'll see. [Laughs] Before she was bionic, and after.

You heard it hear first people Nina and Walter have a history — a history. Which in Hollywood terms means they were lovers, and why not? Walter is a hottie. Tune into to Fringe tonight on Fox.

Rebecca Mader joins 'Goats' herd

Joins George Clooney, Ewan McGregor in cast
By Borys Kit
Oct 10, 2008, 12:00 AM ET

Rebecca Mader, best known for playing scheming redhead Charlotte on ABC's "Lost," is in final negotiations for the lead female role in "Men Who Stare at Goats," the George Clooney- and Grant Heslov-produced adaptation of the book by Jon Ronson. Heslov is directing.

"Goats" is set in Iraq and centers on Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor), a desperate reporter who stumbles upon the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady (Clooney), who claims to be a former secret U.S. military psychic soldier who was reactivated after 9/11.

Mader will play McGregor's wife.

Stephen Lang, who appears in James Cameron's "Avatar" and Michael Mann's "Public Enemies," also joins the cast that includes Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges, playing an intelligence officer.

Mader and Lang are repped by Innovative.

Rebecca Mader's future on Lost

• Just because Rebecca Mader has been cast in some big, fancy George Clooney movie doesn't means she's leaving Lost, insists an ABC insider, who points out that Matthew Fox has been juggling a movie career and the ABC drama for years. (Of course, he's Matthew Fox.)
