Taylor Wily, a former sumo wrestler and Samoan actor best known for his roles in Hawaii Five-0 and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, died of natural causes Thursday in Las Vegas, his manager and friend Michael J. Henderson told the Times. He was 56 years old.

The Hawaii-born actor was a scene-stealer as hotel worker Kemo in the 2008 romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, starring Jason Segel, Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis.

Wily then appeared in the CBS reboot Hawaii Five-0. Wily, who played Kamekona Tupuola, a convict turned entrepreneur and informant for the Hawaii Five-0 team, was promoted to series regular in the show's eighth season. His character also appeared in Magnum PI and MacGyver.

Wily began his career as a sumo wrestler, competing in Japan under the name Takamikuni. Weighing nearly 440 pounds, Wily was undefeated in his first 14 matches. He retired from the sport in 1989.

After retiring, he began training in mixed martial arts and competed in the first-ever Ultimate Fighting Championship under the name Teila Tuli. He lost in his first round and did not compete again.

Peter M. Lenkov, former showrunner of Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum PI job about Wilys' death on Instagram.

T, as I told you several times, I fell in love with you from the first audition. You arrived with a towel on your head to mop up the sweat and I was impressed. You charmed me into making you a regular on the show and in my life. You were family. And I will miss you every day, brother, Lenkov wrote. PS: When we spoke last week, we laughed about how you were right from day one. Five-0 was our dream job. And I was so lucky that we got to share this magic together.

Hawaii Five-0 star Meaghan Rath commented a broken heart emoji under the post. Writer-producer Trey Callaway commented: “His memory will indeed remain a blessing to millions.

Andre Jackson, Magnum PI writer retweeted the news on X, adding Aloha, my friend.

Wily is survived by his wife, Halona Wily, and their two children.
