It looks like a star of Lost – which is ending the series this May – gets to relax in Hawaii for the foreseeable future.

Daniel Dae Kim has landed the lead role as Detective Chin Ho Kelly on the CBS Studios/network remake of Hawaii Five-O.

In the original, Detective Kelly was played by Kam Fong.

The pilot is being written by the power-combo Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci – the two writers responsible for the VERY profitable Transformers (1 & 2)& new Star Trek movie, along with working on Fringe & Lost.  It will also be worked on by Peter Lenkov, executive producer/co-showrunner of CSI: NY.

The other lead, Detective Steve McGarrett hasn’t been cast yet.
