Ok, so, we already know that musicians Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love will be appearing in the upcoming 7th and final season of Sons of Anarchy on FX … which is cool … and today, we learn that another notable name has been added to the cast of SoA as well. Malcolm Jamal-Warner, the actor who played Theo Huxtable on The Cosby Show, has scored a role on SoA and will appear in at least 2 episodes. Malcolm will play the vice president of a motorcycle club called the Grim Bastards which, I understand, is a group of very bad guys. BE WARNED: The report below contains major spoilers for Sons of Anarchy season 6, so proceed with caution if you are not yet caught up on the show.
Sons of Anarchy is adding a Huxtable to the mix. FX’s motorcycle club drama has booked Malcolm-Jamal Warner for a recurring role in the seventh and final season, which kicks off Sept. 9, at 10 p.m. ET/PT with a supersized premiere. Warner, best known for playing Theo Huxtable on The Cosby Show, will appear in at least two episodes — including the supersized season opener — as Sticky, a member of the Grim Bastards and right-hand man to T.O. Cross (Michael Beach). Season seven of Sons of Anarchy begins 10 days after Gemma murders Jax’s wife, Dr. Tara Knowles, and Juice Ortiz kills Sheriff Eli Roosevelt, with Jax in jail on a parole violation, grappling with his loss. With the club’s support, he sets in motion the brutal machinations that will lead to complete and merciless retribution. Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson are among the notable guest stars appearing.
MJW was on KTLA Morning News just a short time ago to promote his appearance on SoA and he shared a personal photo of his own motorcycle to give us an idea of what he looks like on a bike. I still see Theo Huxtable when I see MJW but if any show can change the perspective of an actor, it’s Sons of Anarchy. Something tells me that there will be other guest star announcements on SoA to come so … stay tuned. As for this last bit of casting news, what do you think?
