Magnum P.I. alum, Larry Manetti has been tapped to play a pivotal role on Hawaii Five-0, TV Guide reports.
Manetti will play local lounge legend Nicky ‘The Kid’ Demarco. Back in the day, Nicky was mentored by the one and only Frank Sinatra. His character owns a nightclub called The Tiki Lounge. And it just so happens that both McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and Danny’s (Scott Caan) fathers used to watch ‘the Kid’ perform.
During the hour, Manetti’s character will assist the Five-0 team with a case as well as croon the Sinatra standard, ‘I Got You Under My Skin’.
Manetti’s appearance will air in an upcoming episode titled ‘Pa’ ani’.
Hawaii Five-0 airs Mondays on CBS.
