We’re nearly certain that somewhere out in the vast wilds of the Internet, there exists a fanfic story where “Moonlight’s” Mick St. John and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s” Spike meet.
Well, it’s about to happen for real. Mick and Spike — or at least the actors who play them, Alex O’Loughlin and James Marsters — will tangle in CBS’ “Hawaii Five-O” pilot. We hope they have plenty of sunscreen.
Marsters’ Facebook page says he’ll be a guest star in the pilot, playing the “nemesis of lead character Jack [sic] McGarrett” (O’Loughlin, whose character’s name is, as far as we know, Steve McGarrett, same as the original show). There’s no word yet on whether his guest spot will be a one-off appearance or has the potential to recur.
The “Hawaii Five-O” cast also includes another Whedonverse alumnus: “Lost’s” Daniel Dae Kim, who recurred on “Angel” from 2001-03), is playing Detective Chin Ho Kelly.
Marsters has also recurred on “Caprica” this season and guested on “Lie to Me.”
