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 on Thursday in Las Vegas, his manager and friend Michael J. Henderson told The Times. He was 56.

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.

“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.” “Magnum P.I.” writer Andre Jackson retweeted the news on X, adding “Aloha, buddy.”

 

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

Following his retirement, he began training in mixed martial arts and competed in the first-ever Ultimate Fighting Championship as Teila Tuli. He lost in his first round and didn’t compete again.

Former “Hawaii Five-0” and “Magnum P.I.” showrunner Peter M. Lenkov posted about Wily’s death on Instagram.
“T, as I told you many times, I fell in love with you at the first audition. You came in with a towel on your head mopping up sweat, and I was smitten. 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 at how right you were from Day 1. Five-0 was our dream job. And I was so lucky we got to share that magic together.”
