"Jack was a star," says Doug Mossman, a Five-0 actor and new general manager of the Hawaii IMAX Theatre.

Doug Mossman was perhaps the best prepared of ail the local actors on Hawaii Five-0. The Honolulu native was on stage by the third grade. "I was inspired by the applause," he said. Mossman continued his acting at Kamehameha Schools, the University of Hawaii and in the army, where he performed in numerous special services productions overseas. Whenever I had the chance, I trotted out my ukulele and did the Hawaiian thing," he said.
After his discharge in 1956, Mossman became the first person from Hawaii to attend the Pasadena Playhouse College of Theater Arts. "There were no parts for Hawaiians. I read for everything ethnic: Mexican, Indian, all of them."
Mossman was working at a restaurant in Monrovia when he was called to audition for an Indian role in Broken Arrow . 'They asked me if I could ride and I said yes, even though I'd never been on a horse in my life. Mossman read his lines so well that he got the part. A stunt man was hired for the riding scenes.
In 1959, three weeks after he answered a casting call for a new series called Hawaiian Eye, the young actor was, in his words, "Living my dream. I went from being a busboy to acting in a studio in Burbank. Besides that, I became the show's technical director. I spent hundreds of hours screening old films, looking for Island scenes. My job was to 'Hawaiian-ize' Hawaiian Eye.
After the series ended, Mossman went to New York where he co-produced the Hawaii exhibit at the 1964 World's Fair. He returned to Los Angeles for several years, then came home and worked in television and radio.
Mossman tested for Five-0's Ted Thorpe and was cast in small parts for six seasons.
Today, Mossman directs sales and marketing for what he describes as "the ultimate movie," the Hawaii Imax Theater in Waikiki.
Moe Keale's acing credentials were the opposite of Doug Mossman's. He was working as an electrician at the Five-0 studio when casting director Bob Busch invited him to audition. "I told him 'no thanks' and went back to rigging," he said.
