Theo Rossi Luke Cage

Sons of Anarchy‘s Theo Rossi is on the wrong side of the law again.

The actor has joined the cast of Marvel’s Luke Cage in the series-regular role of Shades (AKA Alvarez), a career criminal and a nemesis to Mike Colter’s titular superhero, per Deadline. Rossi is coming off of a seven-season run as bandit biker (with a heart of gold) Juice.

Additionally, Rosario Dawson is set to reprise her Daredevil role of Claire Temple in the forthcoming Netflix series. The pair join previously announced cast member Alfre Woodard (as Black Mariah). 

Luke Cage is part of the Marvel/Netflix team-up that kicked off last April with Daredevil, continues with Marvel’s Jessica Jones (starring Krysten Ritter), also gives Iron Fist his own show and culminates in a miniseries event that reimagines The Defenders, Marvel’s dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

Cheo Hodari Coker (NCIS: LA, Southland) will serve as the show’s executive producer and showrunner.

Marvel’s Luke Cage will bow in 2016.
