Truck Kealoha became a regular member of the Five-0 team in September 1979 after he infiltrated a local union. (Yes, Teresa, there was a 12th season!!) An HPD officer and a college graduate with two degrees, Truck became a member of a salvage crew the following year when he joined Andrew Duggan at M Station - Hawaii!
WILFRED "MOE" KEALE
One of Hawaii's most beloved entertainers, Moe began his acting career as an electrician on the set of Hawaii Five-0. According to a television interview he did in the late 1990's, Moe was offered a part in one episode. Not sure he could do the part properly, Jack Lord simply told him "You WILL do it." Since refusing Jack was not an option, Moe took the part and the rest is Five-0 history!
Besides his regular appearances during the final season on Hawaii Five-0, Moe also appeared in the following episodes*:
Highest Castle, Deepest Grave (Akea)
Odd Man In (Rood Twin #1)
Death is a Company Policy (Manoa Bodyguard)
I'm a Family Crook, Don't Shoot (Shibata's Driver)
