Reaching the 100th episode of any TV series is a huge milestone, and the CBS drama series Hawaii Five-0, currently in its fifth season, is doing so on November 7th. In the episode entitled “Inā Paha,” Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) is kidnapped by Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos), and he experiences what would have happened to the team, if they had taken a very different path. William Sadler returns as McGarrett’s father, and singer/musician Gavin Rossdale guest stars as the nefarious Johnny Moreau.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, Gavin Rossdale talked about how he came to be a part of the 100th episode of Hawaii Five-0, the biggest challenges in playing this role, how gracious everyone was in making him feel welcome, the possibility of future episodes, shooting somewhere as beautiful as Hawaii, which other shows he’d love to do an episode of, and the type of roles he’d like to do, in the future. He also talked about the most recent Bush album, Man on the Run, being more focused on art over commerce, the journey that led him back to the band, finding a balance between work and family, and why he loves playing live shows on the road. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
