The Sons of Anarchy spinoff has found its lead.
JD Pardo (Revolution, East Los High) has been tapped to star in Mayans MC, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Mayans MC is set after the events of Sons of Anarchy and centers on EZ Reyes (Pardo), a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the California/Mexico border who struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel as well as his need for respect from the women he loves.
The actor joins a cast that includes Edward James Olmos, who will play the father of Pardo’s character, and Clayton Cardenas.
Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter will co-write the pilot with Elgin James in addition to directing.
