Ian Anthony Dale (born July 3, 1978) is an American actor who has a main role as Adam Noshimuri, ex-husband of former main character Kono Kalakaua, on Hawaii Five-0. Other notable roles include Deputy Secretary of Defense Harris Edwards on Salvation, Simon Lee on The Event, Davis Lee on Surface, Avatar Gamma on Charmed and Kazuya Mishima in Tekken. He has also appeared on shows such as Las Vegas, JAG, Day Break, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Criminal Minds; in 2007, he appeared in 24 as the minor character Zhou.

Early life

Born in Saint Paul, Minnesota, Dale attended Cretin-Derham Hall High School where he was a standout baseball player and also first discovered acting.[1][2][3] His father Jack Dale, who is of English and French descent, played ice hockey for the Minnesota Golden Gophers and made the national team for the 1968 Winter Olympics.[4] His mother is Japanese and immigrated from Kobe to the United States as a teenager.[5][6]

Dale attended St. Mary's University in Winona, Minnesota where he studied stage and theatre and then moved to Madison, Wisconsin, graduating from the University of Wisconsin–Madison.[2] During his first several years in Los Angeles, he worked as a carpenter building sets to make ends meet while taking acting classes and auditioning for roles.[3]



In 2004, Dale appeared in the film Mr. 3000 as "Fukuda", alongside Bernie Mac, Angela Bassett and Chris Noth. His next movie role was in 2007's The Bucket List as an instructor to Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman's characters in one of the scenes. In 2009, he followed that up with a minor part in The Hangover, appeared in the independent film Lollipops and starred in Tekken as Kazuya Mishima. In 2010, he appeared in the film Flying Lessons. In 2010, he also portrayed Scorpion in the short film of Mortal Kombat: Rebirth on YouTube.[7] The film paved way for a web series, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, in which Dale reprised his role. He reprised his role in the second season.


Dale had his first television break on a 2002 episode of Fastlane. Since then he has appeared in episodes of Angel, JAG, Las Vegas, Charmed, 24, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Criminal Minds, Dollhouse and Cold Case.

Major television roles have included recurring character Davis Lee on Surface and Detective Christopher Choi on Day Break. Both series were only broadcast for one season and did not return for a second. Dale was a series regular in the NBC drama series The Event, which ran in the fall of 2010. Dale also recurs in Murder in the First as Lieutenant Jim Koto[2] and also portrayed Deputy Secretary of Defense Harris Edwards for two seasons on Salvation.

Dale plays the role of Adam Noshimuri in Hawaii Five-0 which he starred in 2011. Beginning with the 8th season of Hawaii Five-0 Dale was promoted to a series regular along with new co-star Meaghan Rath and Beulah Koale.
