Exclusive: Sons Of Anarchy Recruits Pulp Film Badass Danny Trejo

Oh, this is a marriage made in a dark, gritty little corner of heaven, folks.

TVLine has learned exclusively that FX’s Sons Of Anarchy has booked film vet Danny Trejo — whose myriad credits include, to name but a few, Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn and The Devil’s Rejects — for a multi-episode Season 4 arc.

Matt’s Inside Line: Scoop on Sons Of Anarchy‘s New Season

Trejo will play Romero “Romeo” Parada, a charismatic and (duh) dangerous former commando for the Mexican military who becomes a new associate of the SONS.

Trejo popped up on the small screen just this past TV season, guesting on Fox’s Bones and ABC’s Modern Family (as a janitor with a crush on Claire).

Sons Of Anarchy‘s fourth cycle premieres in early September.

    Marriage made in hell indeed….freaking awesome. I cannot wait for SOA to start again :)

    I thought the next season was suppose to focus more on the family politics and the direction of the club…It will be interesting to see how Danny fits into SAMCRO. He’ll probably give crap to Juice for not speaking spanish, lol

    This is great casting for a great show.

  6. bhm1304 says:

    Awesome, awesome news. But, the casting I’m waiting to hear is of a certain “Deadwood” veteran, and “Sons” loves its “Deadwood” actors; how awesome would it be if they could get Ian McShane on a motorcycle? I can dream….

  7. NLG says:

    kinda predictable, stunt-y and not at all outside the box. Hope this doesn’t suck as bad as those irish dudes last season

  8. ME says:

    Whatever happened to the year round TV shows. “All in the family”, Jeffersons, The Cosby Show”, Gilligan’s Island, Brady Bunch…off in the summer and that is it. There is too much time in between cycles for the show!
    With that said… I can’t wait to see the excellent casting of Season 4…. The anticipation is {{CRAZY}}

  9. Dave says:

    Terrific casting choice but I assume his filming on SOA will not interfere with his recurring role on the Bones spinoff “Finder” which got greenlit for 13 episodes yesterday? His priest character was one of the better moments in the backdoor pilot from a few weeks ago.

  10. ggny says:

    any chance he will be apart of The Finder cast this fall?

  11. Tonefro says:

    Absolutely awesome

  12. Anna says:

    Ahhhh… This eases my pain.

  13. Ava says:

    Yes! I have been waiting for this to happen!

  14. MCS says:

    You didnt mention his TV role in Breaking Bad! It was one of the most memorable moments in the series.

  15. Patty says:

    What a great fit! He should’ve been cast from the get-go.

  16. Carol/Carolina w/an accent says:

    Awesome, now I’d like to see Greg Ingram on there, too!!

  17. Cindi Gray says:

    OMG! The anticipation is killing me! This is way to long to wait. I am not a TV watcher but I got hooked on SOA.
