Shades Of Blue
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.
