Jack Lord, who starred in the TV series "Hawaii Five-O," testified in the real-life drama of a former businessman accused of running a $22-million fraud scheme. Lord testified Wednesday in federal court in the case of Ronald Rewald, who is accused of scores of fraud, perjury and income tax charges. The actor said that he had considered Rewald a friend, but denied Rewald's claim that he was a consultant for the now-defunct investment firm of Bishop, Baldwin, Rewald, Dillingham & Wong.

During the tense and sweaty "give me my brother or I'll- kill your father" terrorist negotiations that open CBS' new " Hawaii Five-O," a viewer might find herself surprisingly distracted.

And not for the reason CBS would hope.

Six years after his death, "Hawaii Five-O" star Jack Lord is being honored with a bronze bust at one of his favorite Honolulu walking spots. The 40-pound sculpture, which begins about mid-chest and rests on a rocklike pedestal, is scheduled to go on display Saturday during a ceremony at Kahala Mall in East Oahu. "We decided on Kahala Mall because it was the place where you could always see Jack," said Doug Mossman, who had recurring roles on the show.
