Adrian Wilson, actor.
OK, not really.
In fact, that was stressed by Wilson today when he talked about his cameo on the CBS TV series “Hawaii Five-O” during Monday night’s episode. (h/t to commenter Chad D. for the heads-up.) “I don’t want this to be, ‘He’s Hollywood this, Hollywood that,’ ” Wilson said. “It’s not something I want to get known for. At the same time, you don’t want to pass on an opportunity.”
Still, there was Wilson, looking intimidating as usual as a prison guard during a scene of the episode “Ha’Alele” (which can be seen on CBS.com right now. Wilson’s scene is around the 18-minute mark.) He even delivers a line (well, in my amateur opinion): “You ready to go back?” Wilson said he had about 10 lines, “but they cut it all out. I felt like I did pretty good.”
The scene was shot while Wilson was in Hawaii recently, although his spot in the show was somewhat of a fluke. One of his publicists, Carrie Carnie, got to talking to one of the producers of the show on an airline flight. Turned out the producer was a fan of Wilson’s and the role was created. It’s not exactly Wilson’s arena, though. While the actual scene was being shot, it was fun, he said. But mostly, “there was a lot of time in between shots, just waiting around.”
It was a chance to do something new. But don’t expect Wilson to be the next Fred Dryer or anything.
“I’m a football player,” Wilson said.
