Sons of Anarchy's Ryan Hurst Checks Into Bates Motel Season 3

Ryan Hurst Bates Motel

One of SAMCRO’s finest has made a reservation at Bates Motel.

Sons of Anarchy alum Ryan Hurst is joining the A&E drama’s upcoming third season in a major (and rather familiar) recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Hurst, who co-starred as Opie during Sons‘ first five seasons, will play Chick Hogan, a badass ex-con and with an intelligent, dark and menacing quality. He owns a motorbike shop (ha!), but gets his money running an illegal firearms (ha!) business from his property nearby Dylan’s new farm.

I’m told he will lock horns with Dylan’s uncle father Caleb — played by (ha!) Hurst’s former Sons colleague Kenny Johnson.

Since leaving Sons, Hurst guest-starred on Law & Order: SVU and was a regular on TNT’s short-lived King & Maxwell.

Bates Motel reopens in March 2015.

    I can’t wait to see the return of the Bates Motel season 3 in March 2015. I can’t wait to see how the writer will developed the individual character.

  6. JWB says:

    The ratings took a nosedive in season 2. Season 3 might be its last if they don’t fix things.Bates Motel is starting to stray away from its original premise. The show was suppose to be about Norman Bates and his relationship with his mother. How he became the iconic character in Psycho.

    I love my Bates motel, new season begins when ?? Don’t want to miss .. Thanks

  15. JR says:

    AH. For the record it was Donal Logue who played Toric on SOA who was guest starring on Law an Order. I would check facts before stating falsities

    • Kim says:

      Yes , the actor who played Toric did guest star. So has Ryan Hurst , Mark Boone Junior (bobby) and Dayton Callie (Wayne unser) they have all starred on Law and Order SVU. I’m also a die hard Law/Order SVU fan. No offense but you should check before you post.

  16. Ryan Hurst is a fantastic actor. Before and during Sons. I would love to him on the big screen again!!
