CBS announced Chi McBride has been elevated to ‘series regular’ status on Hawaii Five-0. Since joining the show on the season four premiere, McBride’s character (Captain Lou Grover) has become one of the more popular supporting characters on the series.
 
“Well, I know this sounds corny, but the only thing I ever wanted in my career was to be on CBS, the home of my idol Jackie Gleason,” said McBride. “I finally made it to the Tiffany network on Golden Boy, shooting scenes on the same stage where The Honeymooners was filmed. CBS graciously invited me to be a member of the cast of Hawaii Five-0, and it’s been wonderful. The cast, crew and production have been so welcoming to me, and so my love affair with CBS continues.”
 
“After his first guest spot, we knew we had something special here with Chi playing Captain Lou Grover,” said Peter Lenkov, Executive Producer. “He just fit seamlessly into the fabric of HAWAII FIVE-0 and viewers are enjoying the spirited, if sometimes antagonistic, interaction between him and McGarrett. We are so thrilled to welcome Chi into our Ohana.”
 
Hawaii Five-0 airs on Friday nights at 9pm ET/PT.
