Pastore will play Vito, Danny’s (Caan) “uncle” from New Jersey, a contractor and general Mr. Fix-It. Danny grew up thinking Vito was “connected”, something Vito played up to, despite having no mob ties to speak of. Vito prides himself on being able to get stuff done. And if he can’t do the job himself, he always claims to “know a guy” who can. Danny will bring Vito out to Hawaii to help get things moving with the restaurant. And Vito will get things moving alright — just not necessarily in the direction Danny and McGarrett (O’Loughlin) had hoped.
Pastore, best known for his role as Salvatore ‘Big Pussy’ Bonpensiero on The Sopranos, was recently cast alongside Denis O’Hare and Michael Rispoli in the Joe Manganiello-starring indie film Stano. His other TV credits include Blue Bloods and The Practice. He’s repped by Abrams Artists Agency and manager Bob McGowan.
