Larisa Oleynik Guest Stars on HAWAII FIVE-0

Hawaii Five-0 Larisa Oleynik-Alex O'Loughlin

Larisa Oleynik will be joining the cast of CBS’ HAWAII FIVE-0, according to exclusive information from TVLine.com. The website states that “Oleynik will play Jessica Kaye, an ex-CIA analyst and Harvard graduate with a degree in Political Science and a Masters in Global Security and Intelligence Studies.” Oleynik’s character Jessica will assist the team in the pursuit of Steve McGarrett’s arch nemesis, Wo Fat (Mark Dacascos). Jessica’s fiancé, a well-respected CIA field agent, was murdered by Wo Fat, so Jessica has a personal stake in the manhunt as well. There is the possibility that Oleynik’s recurrent role this season will become a series regular in season two.

Sidebar: If you grew up in the 90’s, you will know about Larisa Oleynik. She starred in Nickelodeon’s The Secret World of Alex Mack and appeared in Boy Meets World on ABC, 3rd Rock from the Sun on NBC, and the movie 10 Things I Hate About You. More recently Oleynik has been a guest star on AMC’s Mad Men. I can’t wait for her appearance on Hawaii Five-0.
