Back to the past for Hondo
According to information from TVLine, given that the plot will be set 28 years in the past, it is only logical that a young version Hondo will be offered to us. To embody him, the production turned to Donald Dash (see here), an actor seen in series such as Rise, Blue Bloods or Bull . And for the little anecdote, if the actor does indeed have a fairly young face, he is in fact 34 years old, only 16 years younger than Shemar Moore …
In addition, this episode ” which will see the temporal timeline be divided into two with an action in the present and another in the adolescence of Hondo ” dixit Shawn Ryan (the creator), will also allow to put forward a young version of Daniel Harrelson Sr, the hero's father. And unsurprisingly, actor Rico E. Anderson will be back with this role he already held in episode 22 of season 1.
Currently, little information is known about this episode, but Shawn Ryan already assures that it will be one of the most important of the series. Originally slated to serve as the finale for Season 3, the creator warned, ” This is a really special episode, it allows you to look back on these riots through the perspective of a young Hondo .” In other words, we should discover some secrets about this character and understand how he came to be what he is today.
