Rollins is expected to appear in at least six of the show's 13 second season episodes playing a new antagonist who poses a deadly threat to the bikers of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club.
The show's second second, featuring returning stars Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal and Ron Perlman, will begin production on April 27 in Los Angeles. "Sons of Anarchy" is expected to return to FX this fall.
"Henry will bring his intensity and muscularity to this complex part," says Nick Grad, FX's vice president of original programming. "We look forward to seeing him inhabit this role."
Black Flag frontman Rollins won a Grammy back in 1994 for Best Spoken Word or Non-musical Album for "Get in the Van." On IFC TV, he hosted "The Henry Rollins Show." On the now-defunct Indie 103 in Los Angeles, he hosted Harmony in my Head and he's taken his radio-hosting duties over to KCRW. His film roles include appearances in "Lost Highway" and "Bad Boys 2."
