First Gerard Butler, and now him?
What is going on?
Hawaii Five-0's Alex O'Loughlin has reportedly been forced to take a hiatus from the CBS series to undergo treatment for an addiction to prescription pain medication, which stems from a recent injury!
His rep confirms:
"[He will undergo] supervised treatment for prescription pain medication due to a recent shoulder injury."
And CBS continues:
"We respect and support Alex's decision. Everyone at CBS Television Studios and Hawaii Five-0 wishes him well and we look forward to his return."
Thankfully, production of the series is ahead of schedule, as they're currently filming episode 20, so hopefully he won't be missing out too much!
So unfortunate, but at least he seemed to recognize that this was out of his hands and was smart enough to get help!
Stay strong, Alex! We're thinking of you!
