Hawaii Five-O

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know why Zulu, who played Kono, left the show?

Cathyrid

Answer: He was fired. He never really appreciated his character. He felt Kono was portrayed as a big dumb Hawaiian and that the stereotype was racist. He also felt underutilized. He was fired after a heated argument with the show's publicist regarding his character. It seems there's not much details given regarding the incident or the firing, so it's seems possible he upset the show's producers as well.

Leonard Freeman took the criticism to heart, and recast the part with James MacArthur for the series.
