COOL STUFF: FIVE-0'S SAUTE "MAKUAKANE" SAPOLU

As a kid cousin Saute Sapolu would hang out at our future Cool Stuff HQ in Tulaele, Upolu with his Mom. Shy kid. Nobody knew he would be a gridiron star in Long Beach, then at college for Arizona. He got his NFL and Arena Football League shot too.
 
Saute's life has had twists and turns... with a wonderful change this week as he portrayed Hawaii Five-0 mafia godfather, "Makuakane" in this past week's episode. Cool Stuff expects ongoing recurring episode appearances.
 
Maybe Saute and fellow Samoan Taylor Wily will do battle?
