You likely know the name Henry Rollins. What you may not recall initially is exactly where you know him from. Taking over for Dez Cadena as the front man of hardcore 80’s rock band Black Flag, musician turned actor Rollins has been a magazine columnist, radio and television host, started his own record label, won a Grammy for one of his many spoken word albums and been an outspoken activist for gay and human rights. Most recently however, Rollins has been chosen to appear in a recurring role on the second season of FX’s motorcycle drama “Sons of Anarchy”.
In six episodes, he will play a new antagonist in the show, who poses a deadly threat to the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club. Taking place in the fictional town of Charming CA located in the San Joaquin Valley in Northern California, Sons of Anarchy is a dark drama that explores an outlaw motorcycle gang’s mission to protect their way of life from the insurgence of rival gangs, drug dealers, corporate real estate developers and law enforcement officials. The muscular and heavily tattooed Rollins should have no problem creating a realistic character as he gained notoriety in the early days of his career for getting into fights while on stage.
