Lost's Terry O’Quinn Is Returning to an Island

Terry O’Quinn’s return to TV brings him back to the lush, tropical locale that made him a favorite of millions of Lost fans worldwide—and he’s joining a former castmate there while he’s at it. O’Quinn has signed on to CBS’s Hawaii Five-0, where he’ll play Navy Seal Lt. Commander alongside Danie Dae Kim. O’Quinn’s last project, an ABC pilot called Hallelujah, wasn’t picked up to series.

… CBS will keep airing the Grammys through 2021, according to its new deal closed with the Recording Academy. Just think—by then Adele’s 31 will be poised to sweep the awards, and Justin Bieber will be valeting cars. [EW]

Valerie Bertinelli, Matt Groening, Mariska Hargitay, Patricia Heaton, Marg Helgenberger, Walter “Chekhov” Koenig, and Adam West (YES!) have been cleared to receive stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012. Way to go, guys! [Franklin Ave.]

… Soul Daddy, the winning concept restaurant on NBC’s reality show America’s Next Great Restaurant, has closed two of its three locations just one month after they opened their doors. The last one, located on the third floor of the Mall of America in Minnesota, remains open. [HuffPo]

… In a more considered missive on the death of Jackass star Ryan Dunn, Roger Ebert has admitted he may have “been too quick to tweet” and that the wording was “unseemly.” [Sun Times]

… Scott Rosenbaum, whose TV writing credits include Chuck, V, and The Shield, will write the script for FX’s one-hour pirate drama Port Royal. Set in the late 17th century, it “chronicles Jamaica’s rise as the ‘richest and wickedest city’” in the new world. [THR]

Crap, I was hoping Port Royal would be HBO, AMC or Showtime. So much for foul language, sex and brutal violence. I'll still watch the pilot but I'm not optimistic anymore.

Crap, I though that Port Royal was supposed to be HBO or Showtime. FX can do good series, though they end up cancelling the best ones, but this needed the production value or an HBO or other premium. Oh well.
