Though, for me, Scott Caan doesn't hold a candle to the original Danno, James MacArthur. He's the whole reason I watch the original. I've had a thing for James MacArthur since the first time I saw The Swiss Family Robinson, and he never fails to delight me. I always get the feeling he's really nice in real life.
I guess Daniel Dae Kim is probably the reason I'm watching this one so far, which feels pretty weird, because not so long ago, I just knew him as the evil Wolfram and Hart lawyer, Gavin Park, on Angel. I especially detested Gavin because he replaced Lindsey. But after Lost, I quite dig Dae Kim, and decided to see what he has to offer in a detective show.
(We don't get any channels on our actual TV, so I watch shows online at either cbs.com or hulu.com. I love the internet!)
Super Exciting News! According to his official website, James MacArthur has agreed to be in an ep of the new series! Ooooooooooo!
And yes, I got Dano's nickname from the original Hawaii Five-O. I'm a dork.
