Zulu - Trivia

Trivia

Once hosted a show in Hawaii called "Big Z Movietime".

Fired from "Hawaii Five-O" (1968) following the fourth season after an altercation with the series' publicist.

In ill health for much of his later life, Zulu (whose stage moniker was sometimes spelled "Zoulou") suffered multiple heart attacks and strokes, yet managed to continue appearing at "Hawaii Five-O" conventions over the years and played a role in the new "Hawaii Five-O" pilot that was filmed in 1997.

Later performed in Waikiki nightclubs singing and performing stand-up comedy.

Died at Hilo Medical Center in Honolulu.

Was one of the original cast members of "Hawaii Five-O" and played Kono Kalakaua for four seasons until the bulky actor was fired after disagreements with the show's publicist. Supposedly a racial slur was used and Jack Lord had him fired. The rumor that he quit because the role was not big enough and did not take full advantage of his comedic talents seems absurd and highly unlikely. Zulu was replaced by Al Harrington, who was slightly smaller in size.

Was convicted of second-degree negligent homicide after his vehicle hit and killed a bicyclist in 1986. He was fined $500 and placed on one year's probation.

Earned the name "Zulu" in high school.

Changed the spelling of his name from "Zulu" to "Zoulou" saying it was the French Tahitian spelling.
