Shades Of Blue

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 27 FEBRUARY -

In new cop drama Shades Of Blue (2016-cur­rent), War­ren Kole plays creepy FBI agent Robert Stahl, Har­lee Santos’s (Jen­nifer Lopez) han­dler. And it seems that the 38-year-old’s got a thing for crime shows – he played David Siegel in White Col­lar (2009-2014), Ray Bid­well in The Chicago Code (2011), Wes Mitchell in Com­mon Law (2012) and Tim Nelson in The Fol­low­ing (2013-2015). So what else should you know about War­ren?

The Texas na­tive stud­ied act­ing at Bos­ton Univer­sity but dropped out in 2002 to rather at­tend cast­ings and au­di­tions. Kole isn’t his real sur­name – while study­ing, War­ren David Blosjo Jr changed his sur­name, adding that “the ironic thing is that I took Kole from a fam­ily name. We had a vote and they had a few names, but Kole won”. While he likes the crime genre, War­ren’s open to other gen­res – if some­one would just ask. “I never made the choice only to work on crime shows or pro­ce­du­rals. That’s just how it’s come down the chute. I’m al­ways up for a lit­tle ro­mance,” he laughs. In his spare time, War­ren’s a bit of an ad­ven­turer who likes to feel the wind in his hair while rid­ing around on his mo­tor­bike. He also en­joys camp­ing and rock climb­ing. But when he’s in­doors, he en­joys watch­ing pop­u­lar TV shows, like Game Of Thrones (2011-cur­rent) and Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story (2011-cur­rent). War­ren’s got a cou­ple of weird fans. In 2012, a cy­ber-stalker from the Nether­lands emailed him a death threat. The ac­tor went to the cops, got a pro­tec­tion or­der and the cy­ber-stalker was tracked down but not ar­rested.
