One thing “Sons of Anarchy” isn’t shy about doing is adding new characters and cast to the show. As season 7 is already filming, news that yet another character has been added seems a little surprising, especially given this is the last season for the hugely popular motorcycle club drama. According to a report on Movie Pilot today, the latest member of the cast is former ‘Cosby’ kid, Malcolm-Jamal Warner.
Warner is set play a character named “Sticky.” Don’t you just love some of the names? He is going to be the right-hand man of T.O. Cross (Michael Beach), the president of the Grim Bastards Motorcycle Club. Cross started out as a friend of Clay’s but when we last saw him in season 5, he and Jax were not on the best terms. Cross was protecting the guy who beat Opie to death in the Stockton prison. The character of Cross will be back this season but in just what capacity is not yet known.
Other than being Cross’s go-to guy, the character of Sticky is also a mystery. Seeing Theo as a leather-clad biker badass may be a shock for some people but Warner has stayed busy in industry since leaving “The Cosby Show” when it ended in 1992 after a 7 year run. In addition to dozens of appearances on numerous television shows, Warner has also starred in a couple other series. He starred in “Malcom & Eddie” from 1996 to 2000 and in “Jeremiah” from 2002 to 2004. He’s also done some occasional directing.
Also joining the cast for the seventh and final season of “Sons of Anarchy” are Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love. Manson will play Ron Tully, a powerful and well-connected inmate in prison with Jax. Love plays the preschool teacher taking care of Abel, Jax’s oldest son.
Season 7 of "Sons of Anarchy" premieres on September 9 on FX. The season premiere and finale will be followed by a live panel show, called "Anarchy Afterword."
