Jimmy Smits Joins FX’s Sons Of Anarchy


Jimmy Smits is putting his good guy days behind him and moving over to the wrong side of the law joining FX’s fsmits__120405201625-275x388lagship drama Sons of Anarchy for a major, season-long story arc.

Smits is slated to play Neron “Nero” Padilla, a Latino gangbanger with an exit strategy who becomes a dangerous mentor for Jax (Charlie Hunnam).

Were told that Nero is envisioned as being a heavily tattooed bad ass so I’m pretty sure were not going to be seen Jimmy Smits and his trademark shirt and suit. Were also told that the role is going to be a bit darker than Smits character ADA Miguel Prado on Dexter which was a role that actually earned Smits an Emmy nomination.

I’m looking forward to this and hopefully Jimmy Smits journey to on typecast himself is successful and he will be able to at last put his NYPD Blue association behind him forever.
