THIS PAGE INCLUDES INFORMATION ABOUT THE OTHER 'FIVE-0' OFFICERS INCLUDING DANNO, KONO, CHIN, DUKE AND McGARRETT'S SECRETARY, JENNY AND THE HAWAII GOVERNOR, PAUL JAMESON.

James MacArthur (Danny 'Danno' Williams)

Detective Dan Williams is the second-in-command of Hawaii Five-O, a State Police group in Hawaii.

At the start of the series, it's implied Williams, also called Danny or Danno, is about in his mid-twenties. When he fatally shoots a fleeing suspect we're told this is the first time Williams has killed anyone (And They Pained Daisies on His Coffin). Williams was born in Hawaii and went to college on the Mainland before becoming a law-enforcement officer.

Williams's talents include being a crack rifle shot (Hookman) and a handwriting expert (Hawaii Five-O pilot TV movie, The Ninety Second War Part I).

Like other members of Five-O, he is hardworking and loyal. On occasion, he will question his boss, Steve McGarrett. But it is clear he respects McGarrett greatly.

One of Williams's biggest crises occurred during the aforementioned incident where the suspect was killed. Danno, while off duty, spotted the suspect trying to break into a car. The suspect, a teenaged boy, also fired at Williams. After a long foot chase, Danno followed the suspect to his apartment. He fired his gun into the lock, intending only to gain entry. Instead, the bullet struck the boy, wounding him fatally. As Danno tended to the boy, he failed to notice a young woman hiding the apartment, who takes the boy's gun as she leaves.

As a result of all this, Danno is indicted by a grand jury for murder. McGarrett eventually proves his innocence.

Williams does show on occasion he is capable enough to lead Five-O if he had to do so. When McGarrett is seriously wounded in a first-season episode, it is Danno who leads the investigation and breaks the case.

Another crisis for Danno occurred during the show's third season. Williams is having a serious relationship with a woman (played by Anne Archer). She is killed, apparently part of a spree by a psychopathic killer (Beautiful Screamer). At one point, refusing to take time off, he beats up a potential suspect before Kono and Chin Ho can stop him. He offers his resignation to McGarrett, who refuses it. The killer is revealed not to be a psychopath, but a businessman. His construction company is struggling and he has used his wife's inheritence as collateral for loans. The wife was a close friend of the slain women. The businessman killed the women so that it would appear the "psychopath" also killed his wife.

Danno arrives just before the businessman can murder his spouse. After a furious fight, the businessman is hanging on for dear life at the edge of the cliff. Danno stares at the businessman intently. The wife also stares at Danno while Kono (who's just arrived) yells out. For a split second, it appears Williams could kill the businessman. Instead, he reaches down, yanks him up and puts him under arrest.

Williams's departure from Five-O was never explained. Williams evidently continued to live in Hawaii, however. By 1997, when the pilot for a potential Five-O pilot was shot, Williams is now the governor of Hawaii. He is gunned down in a plot involving the Russian Mafia. This spurs retired members of Five-O (but not McGarrett, who is not present) to join up with current Five-O members to crack the case. Gov. Williams recovers. The program was never shown.

Zulu as Kono

Not a lot of hard facts are known about our Hawaiian hero, Kono Kalakaua, other than he was descended from Hawaiian royalty, and that he wore a “dainty size 13 shoe”.  You’d expect a big burly guy like Kono to be the stereotypical jock -- a bit belligerent and strong-armed.  However, he was always the gentleman, quiet and reserved but funny, with nice manners, very gentle, and with strong ethical convictions.  But, he was all ‘cop’, street smart and brave.

I see Kono as a modern, but occasionally I see the ancient Hawaiian ways showing through -- not always in what he said but more in a knowing look in his eyes -- as if he knew something that the others could not possibly understand.  I see him coming from a large, close knit Hawaiian family with a strong but traditional Hawaiian mother who taught him, through her own actions, the moral values that became his own code of ethics: to be respectful of authority -- his parents, elders, government; to love his culture -- respect the traditions and legends even if he no longer believed in them; and to have a strong sense of moral obligation to himself and his fellow man.  These values made the man and the police officer.

Kam Fong as Chin Ho Kelly

Officer Chin Ho Kelly was played by Kam Fong, who in real life, was a police officer. His character was killed off.


Herman Wedemeyer as Duke Lukela

 

We first meet Edward D. "Duke" Lukela as a uniformed HPD sergeant. He works with Five-O a number of times before being assigned in 1972 to help Five-O full-time. He continues in this capacity for three years. Then, when Ben Kokua leaves the squad, Duke is promoted to plainclothes detective and becomes a full-fledged member of the Five-O squad. He continues to work for Five-O for the rest of McGarrett’s tenure as head of the agency. McGarrett seems fond of Duke and treats him in a more affectionate manner than some of the other members of the squad. Duke has a well-developed network of street sources and informers and is somewhat protective towards the prostitutes who give him information. He is also a sharpshooter and a martial arts expert.

Duke was born June 19, 1926 to a family of "old missionary stock." His family is religious and strict, and Duke is forced to be secretive when helping his niece Gladys when she becomes pregnant out-of-wedlock. Raised in this environment, Duke seems to be ambivalent about the "old ways." He sometimes observes Hawaiian tradition and other times seems to have a wistful feeling that it should be "left in the past."

As a young man, he was an Eagle Scout, served in the Navy or Naval Reserves where he learned about explosives, and acquired two degrees from Stanford University. He carries Badge #260. He is 5'10", weighs 175 pounds and has blood type A, Rh negative. He likes Hawaiian music, knows how to play the harmonica, and denies any knowledge of the ukulele.

In the course of his service with Five-O, Duke was framed for corruption, shot, blown up, survived a serious car crash in which he was thrown from the vehicle, and had photo developing fluid thrown in his eyes.

Keen observers may notice that Duke has several "cousins" on the force who bear a remarkable resemblance to him, including a detective named Lt. Balta, a judge and a uniformed officer named Ishi.

Richard Denning as the Governor

Paul/Phil Jameson was elected as Governor for the state of Hawaii after a brief appearance as a treasury agent named Phil Gray in 1968.  He must have been undercover as it comes to light that he appointed McGarrett to head the Five-0 unit in 1959 when Hawaii became a state.  How this man who couldn't decide on a first name until the ninth season got elected and managed to serve 12 years without once being re-elected remains one of only a few cases Five-0 was unable to solve.  The only person - other than God - who McGarrett actually took orders from, The Gov bullied, blustered and sometimes got uppity to get McGarrett to solve any case he deemed the unit worthy to solve or to attend any party where a potential criminal could be on the guest list.  Originally looking something like Lew Ayres, The Gov evolved into a dapper looking gentleman who like most politicians showed up occasionally, said a few words, threw his weight around and went back to his house on Maui.
