An Ode To Danno

Though his full name may be Danny Williams, everyone knows the hardworking and lovable sidekick of “Hawaii Five-O” as Danno. James MacArthur brought this iconic character to life, and provided us with one of the most important phrases in the pop culture lexicon: “Book’ em Danno.” MacArthur spent 12 seasons booking Hawaii’s toughest thugs in the original 1968 series. He passed away this week of natural causes at 72. His most memorable role lives on in CBS’s reboot of the show and in the thousands of original fans who remember MacArthur for keeping America’s paradise safe.
