It looks like Jimmy Smits’ biker days aren’t over yet…
The 57-year-old Puerto Rican actor will reprise his role as Neron “Nero” Padilla on the upcoming sixth season of FX’s Sons of Anarchy.
Smits, appeared as the former gangbanger in 12 of Anarchy’s 13 episodes last season, has signed on to appear in all of the episodes next season.
The Emmy-winning actor most recently wrapped up a successful run in Motherf**ker With The Hat at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre.
Sons of Anarchy is the highest-rated series ever on FX, and its recent fifth season ranks as the series’ highest-rated yet with first-run episodes averaging 6.37 million total viewers.
The sixth season of Sons of Anarchy is shaping to be even more intense and volatile than the last.
Production is set to begin in late spring for the show’s September premiere.
