Heroes Reunion: Greg Grunberg with Masi Oka

Hawaii Five-O’s resident coroner, Max, played by Heroes‘ Masi Oka is about to meet a familiar face.  Well sort of.

Greg Grunberg, who you may remember as Matt Parkman from Heroes, is about to join the cast in a guest-starring role.

Grunberg will play an ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agent based out of Honolulu.  His team’s purpose is to survey smuggled contraband and Homeland Security threats.

He has worked with Five-0 team member Lori Weston on Homeland Security issues before, so he is aware of the task force and their successful and unorthodox ways of handling cases,” executive producer Peter M. Lenkov told TV Line recently.

His first exposure to working directly with Five-0 is when the team handles the murder investigation of an ICE Agent under command.

Of course, we plan to infuse the character with Greg’s unique personality and humor,” said Lenkov, “as well as put him in a scene with Masi for those die-hard Heroes fans.”

Hawaii Five-O returns to our screens with a new season on Monday, September 19 at 10/9c, with Greg Grunberg’s episode airing in November.

There is a rumor that his role could become a recurring one.
