Hi, Bryan Here….
Jimmy Smits is jumping sides here and is set to appear in the upcoming fifth season of FX’s ‘Sons of Anarchy’ in a major season long story arc. Smits will play Neron “Nero” Padilla, a Latino gang-banger with an exit strategy who becomes a dangerous mentor for Jax (Charlie Hunnam). Smits has played bad guys before, so he is no slouch to playing villains. I think he will add a lot to the show and is cast perfectly.
Nero is envisioned as being heavily tattooed and definitely won’t be wearing a suit. He also is expected to be as dark and possibly even darker than Prado, a role that earned Smits an Emmy nomination according to Deadline. Prado was Smith character on the Showtime show ‘Dexter’. Good news for ‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 5. Your thoughts?
