B.J. Penn films ‘Hawaii Five-0’ episode

    B.J. Penn signed an autograph for a fan Wednesday at the UFC Gym BJ Penn showroom. Penn was promoting a 37,000-square-foot workout facility scheduled to open in April at the former Pipeline Cafe site.

Hilo native and former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion fighter B.J. Penn will appear in an upcoming episode of  "Hawaii Five-0."

In his Bleacher Report blog, Penn writes that he finished filming last week.

"I played just a random no-name guy. I guess you would call him like a surf punk type of person," Penn wrote. "The cool thing is they can expand on that character if they want, and I can come back and do other small appearances on the show.

"Kala (Alexander), one of the guys involved with the series, said I was holding my own in the acting department, so that was pretty awesome. He made me feel good!"

CBS said Penn plays a member of a North Shore gang.

The episode is tentatively scheduled to air Dec. 12.
