Alex O´Loughlin ~ An Intense Study

In the 21st-century version of “Hawaii Five-0,” Steve McGarrett is a military man through and through — right down to his preferred footwear.

“I wanted him to always be in standard combat boots,”says Alex O’Loughlin, who plays McGarrett in CBS’ reworking of its classic cop show. He pauses for a second. “Which was a stupid, stupid choice, because now I’m extremely hot all the time.”

O’Loughlin talked with Zap2it earlier this month in Hawaii as he took a short break between shooting scenes for the show’s sixth episode. Poorly thought-out shoe decisions aside, he says the essence of McGarrett goes back to the character’s time in the U.S. Navy. “He’s a military guy, he’s a trained SEAL, you know?”he says. “The way he sees life is as a team guy. So that’s always going to be part of him.”
