We spoke to seasoned actor James Caan, known for his roles in The Godfather, Brian's Song and Elf (to name a few), in the studio today. Want to know what he told us? That his son, Scott Caan, who plays Detective Danny "Danno" Williams in the CBS television series Hawaii Five-0, is "through" with the show and "they're negotiating to see if this is his last year."
About a year and a half ago Caan's costar Alex O'Loughlin, who plays Steve McGarrett, said that he would "absolutely turn in his badge" after Season 8 explaining: “[Five-0] is an action show, I’m the main guy, and I defy anybody to do what I’ve done for as long I’ve done it and hold out the way I have. I was a fit, strong, healthy guy when I started the show, and I still am, but you sustain what you sustain.”
We already know that the show has been renewed for a ninth season, so fans may want to soak it up while they can. Listen to our full interview with James Caan below!
