We haven’t seen much of ex-Shorty star Beulah Koale recently as he’s been a super busy man.

Not only has he recently become a dad to twin boys with his partner Georgia Otene, but he’s landed an awesome role on the American TV show, Hawaii Five-O.

Koale has been cast as Junior Reigns, a former Navy SEAL just returned from serving his country.

Other new faces on Hawaii Five-O for it’s eighth season are Ian Anthony Dale and Meaghan Rath.

Beulah played the role of Jared Rafeaki on Shortland Street between 2012 and 2014, before leaving the soap to pursue a career in Hollywood.

And he’s doing pretty well for himself! Koale will star in the upcoming film Thank You For Your Service, alongside Miles Teller and Amy Schumer, due out later this year.
