Today CBS released a new clip from the "Hawaii Five-0" episode airing tonight at 10/9C which shows us a scene with comedian/actor Dane Cook as Matt Williams Danno's (Scott Caan) brother hanging out with his daughter Grace (Teilor Grubbs) x-wife Rachel (Claire van der Boom) and his boss Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) with Dane Cook's character telling stories about them growing up.

The character of Danny "Danno" Williams that Scott Caan has created on Hawaii Five-0 is the best new characters on TV. Caan plays it with the perfect amount of heart, machismo and snark that makes it fantastic TV fun and is the reason he was nominated for the Golden Globe as best supporting actor. Not wanting to leave out his straight man to his funny, Alex O'Loughlin is perfect as McGarret who throws caution and rules to the wind, making the interplay between these two 'must watch TV and making this one of the best new character driven dramedies on TV today.

The procedural part of Five-0 in "Loa Aloha" (Long Goodbye in Hawaiian) deals with a deranged bomber bent on revenge. While the team races to stop the bomber before he kills again Danny's brother Matt shows up unannounced in Hawaii. Danny cuts the reunion short when he finds out the real reason his little brother came to Hawaii.

Dane Cook is known for his stand up comedy act and his comedic acting parts in the movies "Employee of the Month," "My Best Friends Girl". Cook is just finishing up three more movies "Answers to Nothing," "Detention," and "Guns, Girls and Gambling." This is perfect casting to have Mr. laid back, easy going, fun loving Dane Cook type character to play against his too tightly wound older brother Danny.
