- Will ‘Hawaii Five-0’ Flap Lead to Changes for Actors of Color?

“Hawaii Five-0” series regulars Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park are exiting the show after contract negotiations broke down, and the situation has added fuel to a bigger discussion as to whether Hollywood is making advancements toward inclusivity.CBS said in a statement on Wednesday that it offered “large and significant salary increases” to Kim and Park in an attempt to retain the two cast members, who have played Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua respectively since its launch in September 2010.Michael Hashiguchi, a documentary filmmaker and assistant professor in multimedia film & production at Georgia Southern University, pointed out to TheWrap that the “H50” situation follows a number of recent Hollywood projects — including “Ghost in the Shell,” “Aloha” and “Doctor Strange” — in which key roles that could have gone to Asian-American performers instead went to white actors.Guy Aoki, president of Media Action Network for Asian Americans (MANAA), told TheWrap that the problem was set in place when CBS chose to cast white actors in the roles of McGarretty and Danno, mirroring the set-up of the original version that launched in 1960.“They used Kim but cast Lee as a cop killer, which really made me hit the ceiling and led to a separate meeting in 2011 with CBS about the show’s penchant for using API [Asian-Pacific Islander] guest stars as villains or suspects vs. leaders in the community, as APIs are in real life in Hawaii,” Aoki said.Mary Romero, professor of justice and social inquiry at Arizona State University, told TheWrap that the “H50” situation highlights the struggle that actors of color face every day in this business.
