Daredevil transfers to 'Hawaii Five-O'
Looking to reclaim the fame he lost about the same time as he bumped rumps with JLo, Ben Affleck is in talks to star in the big-screen version of TV golden-oldie 'Hawaii Five-O'. Sky News reports that Affleck, currently filming 'Truth, Justice and the American Way', would take on the role of Steve McGarrett, made famous in the Sixties and Seventies by Jack Lord. An insider says, "Ben is ideal as he mixes the serious with comedy. All we have to do now is find him a leading lady." George Nolfi ['Ocean's Twelve'] is penning the script for the film, believed to be a near-Xerox of the TV series' template, with George Litto (the creator of the original series) playing producer.
