Two Supporting Cast Let Go From Hawaii 5-o

3 July 2017 9:24 PM, PDT

Hawaii 5-o supporting cast members Grace Park and Daniel Dae Kim have been let go from the long-running CBS police procedural series. The two had been holding out for a bump in their salaries equivalent to fellow cast members Scott Caan and Alex O'Loughlin. The network didn't want to move any higher, which trade magazine Variety reports would have been a difference of 10-15% more.

What's causing many entertainment watchers to raise their eyebrows is that both Dae Kim and Park are Hawaii 5-o's top-billed Asian-American actors. The loss of both actors to what should be a visably rich Hawaiian cast is raising the question of whether CBS is guilty of valuing non-white cast members at a discount while the white Hawaii 5-o players like O'Laughlin and Caan get more money.

CBS made a point of graciously acknowledging and thanking Grace Park and Daniel Dae Kim for their time portaying »
