Former Dexter Big Bad Jimmy Smits has scored a major season-long arc in the upcoming fifth season of FX serial Sons Of Anarchy.
Smits will play Neron “Nero” Padilla, a Latino gangster who becomes a dangerous mentor for the Sons’ new boss, Jax.
SOA creator Kurt Sutter recently outlined the main season arc:
“The dynamic that will play out this season will see Jax at the head of the table and the struggles he has in being king. Basically, the question will be, ‘Can Jax be the leader of an organized crime family and not become Clay (Ron Perlman)?’”
