Masi Oka in Searching for Sonny Movie Trailer

Besides his regular stint on “Hawaii Five-O”, Masi Oka has found time to do movies. His latest is 2011′s “Searching for Sonny”, in which he plays a guy who goes missing. You don’t really see a whole lot of him in the trailer, but hey, he is basically at the center of the movie, so I’m guessing he’ll at least have something to do in the movie. Check out the trailer below.

A Heroes Show Without Hiro? Let the Rumors Fly.

A Heroes show without Hiro? That’s almost unthinkable. After all, if Tim Kring and company can’t even bring themselves to kill any of any of their main players without resorting to some gimmick to bring them back and maintain the status quo, is it really thinkable that they would kill off Hiro, probably the show’s most popular character (aside from the cheerleader, I mean)? Probably not, but the speculation now exists thanks to the folks over at Watch With Kristin.

Masi Oka’s Get Smart Spin-Off DVD Cover and Trailer

So now it’s official: The title of Masi Oka’s “Get Smart” direct-to-DVD spin-off movie will be called “Get Smart’s Bruce and Lloyd out of Control”, which sorta makes it sound like a Spring Break video of our favorite Hero gone wrong, if you know what I mean, but I digress. The original movie, co-starring Masi Oka and Nate Torrence, including guest appearances by “Get Smart” cast, will show up on standard DVD and Blu-Ray July 1st, about a week and a half after the “Get Smart” movie opens in theaters everywhere.
