One of the stars of the acclaimed HBO drama series “The Sopranos” is joining CBS’s “Hawaii Five-O.” EW.com’s Inside TV reports that Michael Imperioli will play a reformed criminal with a love of surfing.
His character, Odell Martin, will appear in at least two episodes. Martin runs a barbershop and employs ex-cons. While the business is legitimate, it allows Martin to keep tabs on what’s going on in the criminal world.
Imperioli’s character will first surface in 14th episode of the season.
Imperioli won an Emmy in 2004 for his performance as mobster Christopher Moltisanti on “The Sopranos,” one of five Emmy nominations he received for the role.
