"Who is Dr. Cole and what happened to him?"
Like many others who walked by the makai side of the Hawaii State Capitol today, that's exactly what I was wondering after picking up lunch and seeing a large flower memorial for a Dr. Cole near the pool of brackish water surrounding the building.
Little did I know that the ABC television series, "The River," was filming at the Hawaii State Capitol today.
Ah, that's who Dr. Cole is.
According to a Honolulu Star Advertiser article:
"The River" stars [Bruce] Greenwood as Dr. Emmet Cole, who travels the world to film a popular nature television show. He goes missing in the Amazon, and his family, friends and crew set out to find him. "The shocking truth about his disappearance is out there, somewhere, just waiting to be discovered," says a statement released by the studio.The pilot was shot in Puerto Rico before production was relocated to Hawaii.
