KENDALL  JENNER (above), KIM KARDASHIAN’S SISTER, WILL APPEAR ON HAWAII FIVE-0 IN OCTOBER

CBS on Monday is expected to announce that it’s hit series Hawaii Five-0 will hold is third consecutive Red Carpet Sunset on the Beach premier in Waikiki on Aug. 23…The primary cast as well as some series regulars will strut the Red Carpet meeting with news media…

In other Five-0 news, Kendall Jenner is following in the footsteps of her big sister, Kim Kardashian, and is taking the leap from reality to scripted television. On Friday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 16, announced that she will be appearing on an upcoming episode of the CBS police drama series Hawaii Five-O

“I am SO excited to reveal to you all that I am going to be making my acting debut on Hawaii Five-O!! My episode will air in October this year and I can’t wait to get started on filming,” the teen, who also has a modeling career, wrote on her blog. “This is such an incredible opportunity for me and I’m excited for this new experience!!!” 

This will be the third season for the remake of the classic drama, which originally aired from the 1960s – 1980s. The show, starring Alex O’LoughlinScott CaanDaniel Dae Kim and Grace Park, won a People’s Choice Award in 2011 for “Favorite New TV Drama.”

In January, Kardashian landed a recurring role on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva, in which she portrays relationship expert Nikki LePree. In an upcoming episode airing at the end of the month, Kardashian wears an orange jumpsuit and spends her time behind bars in a storyline where character Stacy Pakery (April Bowlby) gets booked for having too many parking tickets.

In Hawaii Five-0, Jenner will play the supporting role of a sales assistant in the CBS crime drama. Because Jenner is a minor, at least one of her parents will travel with her. Because Jenner is a member of TV’s Kardashian clan, it’s likely that at least one camera crew will travel with her as well… 

Frequent Hawaii visitor, actress Bail Ling (above) arrived in Honolulu on Friday to appear in the  episode currently being filmed Popilikia as a fortune teller named Esmeralda…

Interestingly, Kim Kardashian and boyfriend hip-hop singer Kanye West (above strolling in Kahala) for nine days have been sharing a two-bedroom top floor suite at the Kahala Resort & Hotel while Kanye is  recording his next album at Island Sound Studios in Hawaii Kai. This is the third time Kanye has recorded there. Other singers who have recorded there include Rihanna, Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Eddie Vedder, Eminem, Elton John, and Mariah Carey.

The couple  their first few days in Hawaii were taking morning walks along Kahala Avenue. That’s stopped and they haven’t made one trip to the beach…

The couple is easy to spot since Kanye is driving a 2012, $192,000, slate gray, convertible Ferrari (above)…

OAHU GETS THE NOD AS LOCATION FOR CATCHING FIRE

FILMING ON OAHU BEGINS AS EARLY AS NOVEMBER

 

 

After scouting Kauai, Maui, Hawaii island and Oahu, executives for Hunger Games: Catching Fire selected Oahu as a location for four to five weeks of filming beginning as early as November and including preproduction will wrap in Hawaii just before the December Christmas break. Budget for the sequel is in excess of $100 million, sources said…

 

 

The first Hunger Games had a worldwide gross of $642 million, including $405 million in the United States. The budget was $78 million…

 

 

Here’s the sequel storyline: Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark survived the horrors of Hunger Games against all odds, now living what seems to be their new, rich, peaceful lives in district 12’s victor village. Katniss struggles with her feelings for Gale and Peeta, as well as severe problems with a new head peacekeeper and his squad. But the government of the Capitol is not pleased with Katniss and her performance as the star-crossed lover, claiming that her behavior in the arena may result in an uprising from the districts and, in turn, a new war, with her being the face of it all. President Snow gives her and an unknowing Peeta the chance to fix this during the victor’s tour – a parade through all the districts where the victors get to show themselves to the crowds. Furthermore, as almost a whole year has passed, the 75th annual Hunger Games reaping – this year being the third Quarter Quell – comes with a heart-breaking surprise for Katniss and her fellow district 12 victors…

 

 

Amanda Plummer has been added to the sequel. Plummer will play Wiress, a critical ally to main character Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire. Wiress is a veteran tribute from District 3, drawn back to the games for all-star edition in which past victors are forced to once again compete against each other in a fight to the death…She’s the latest addition to the Hunger Games world, which recently added Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, the gamesmaster who oversees the Quarter Quell on behalf of the government of Panem…

 

 

The film also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Maui resident Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, and Lenny Kravitz…The sequel, directed by Francis Lawrence, is set to hit theaters on Nov. 22, 2013.

 

 

Hawaii locations manager Randy Spangler headed the original scout with the film’s producers in June and July…Catching Fire, the second book in The Hunger Games series, also will film in Atlanta, Georgia and Los Angeles…The first film was shot on location in North Carolina…

In the first Facebook partnership of its kind, women can log on to http://www.Facebook.com/NBCReadyForLove and apply to participate in the experience of a lifetime. Longoria hand selected three successful and handsome men who are committed to finding the right women with whom to share their lives. Ben Patton, a financier from Dallas, Texas, Tim Lopez, a musician from Santa Barbara, California and Ernesto Arguello, a philanthropist from Miami, Florida will vie for the chance to find true love. In order to find their ideal partners, Longoria has enlisted the help of the three best matchmakers in the world…

 

 

The series begins with the matchmakers’ nationwide search for the potential perfect mate for each man, and then launches into a romantic journey that will combine in-studio competition and reality show elements. Each week, the women who fail to make a connection with the men will be sent home. In an intense finale, the quest for love culminates when the three men choose their final three women who together must decide if they’ll get engaged, married or simply live happily ever after. No matter what happens, they will all discover if they are really Ready for Love
