Buffett’s Been Recording Another Guest Spot on Hawaii Five-0

March 12th, 2013

The Margarillas posted a message on Facebook Monday night that Jimmy had just returned from Hawaii where he was filming his second guest spot on the CBS show Hawaii Five-0.

“JB is back on the mainland after kicking some ass as Frank Bama on the set of Hawaii Five-0. Glad our boss is having some fun before we start gearing up for Songs From St. Somewhere 2013!”

More on Buffett’s appearance from Access Hollywood:

“[Terry’s] in episode 320,” Executive Producer Peter Lenkov told AccessHollywood.com recently, during a chat to promote last night’s viewer-voted episode. “So it’s not that far off and what’s interesting is Jimmy Buffett’s going to be in that episode also.”

The upcoming episode (the cast is currently filming 316) should be a treat for fans – not only because of the return of the Parrothead leader as the hippie, black ops helicopter pilot Frank, but because it returns to the initial drama that the show kicked off with when it first launched on CBS in 2010.

“It’s this prequel episode to the pilot, so you’re gonna see Terry as McGarrett’s commanding officer in the SEALS, having sent them on… the mission that McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) was on when we saw him at the beginning,” Lenkov said. “That’s the mission that Terry sent him on to get Hesse in North Korea, so we’re sort of telling a lot of mythology, a lot of backstory.”

Hesse killed McGarrett’s dad, and Lenkov hinted that the SEAL’s late father could be around.

“Yes, but not in a conventional way,” he said. “There’s definitely going to be a mention of his dad. But it’s really about… the 16 hours that lead up to the pilot and flashbacks to his days as a SEAL, with Terry being his CO (commanding officer).”

Jimmy, however, won’t be in flashbacks.

“He’s gonna be a part of sort of the present day story,” Lenkov said.

Buffett’s first appearance on Hawaii Five-0 aired November 21, 2011.
