FX's "Sons of Anarchy" has booked Malcolm-Jamal Warner for a recurring role in Season 7. According to The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported the news Saturday (July 19), the "Cosby Show" alum will appear in at least two episodes of the drama's seventh and final season, including the super-sized season premiere.
Warner will play Sticky, a member of the Grim Bastards and right-hand man to T.O. Cross (Michael Beach). The actor joins Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson and "The Bridge" star Annabelle Gish as guest stars for the final season. Love will play a preschool teacher, Manson has been cast as a white supremacist, while Gish will portray the new Charming sheriff.
The cable network recently announced that Season 7 will open with a special one hour and 45 minute premiere on Sept. 9, followed by a live post-show, "Anarchy Afterwords," hosted by Chris Franjola ("Chelsea Lately"), that will also air following the show's series finale, and stream live on FXNow three other times during the season. Fans will be able to ask questions via a toll-free call-in number, as well as social media.
The seventh season will pick up 10 days after the Season 6 finale, with Jax (Charlie Hunnam) in jail on a parole violation, planning to avenge the murder of his wife Tara (Maggie Siff). Entertainment Weekly recently released the first photo from the seventh season featuring Jax in an orange prison suit alongside Manson, who plays prison shot-caller Ron Tully.
Warner, best known for playing Theo Huxtable on "The Cosby Show," has most recently appeared on TNT's "Major Crimes, which was recently renewed for a fourth season, and "Community" on NBC.
"Sons of Anarchy" will make its final trip to Comic-Con this Sunday, July 17, while Season 7 premieres Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 10/9 p.m. CT on FX.
