Ron Perlman joins Sons Of Anarchy

Ron PerlmanWell now, if you were having trouble deciding between the competing biker shows in development, perhaps this news will tip your TV watching scales. FX has signed up Ron Perlman (Beauty And The Beast) to take over the role of Clay, president of the motorcycle club, and step-father to the main character Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam), in Kurt Sutter's Sons Of Anarchy.

The part was played by Scott Glenn in the pilot, but the powers that be chose to recast it after deciding to make the series more of a dark comedy. I'm not exactly sure what that means, because I could go for Glenn in a dark comedy, but adding Perlman does heighten my interest in the show, to be sure. If you just can't wait for the show to premiere to get your Perlman fix, he'll be showing up at your local multiplex with Hellboy II: The Golden Army in July.

Original Hellboy was a hoot & a half. And RP was good in some years back in an action MTV about surviving on an island or something was a good little sleeper.
Biker theme has worked for some others in past but not especially pumped for one right now. Hot chicks and good story lines might help. As long as the Sci-Fi channel MTV crew isn't involved! lol

Scifi channel MTV crew?? What? Different networks, different corporate owners, different everything.
