One of SAMCRO’s finest has made a reservation at Bates Motel.
Sons of Anarchy alum Ryan Hurst is joining the A&E drama’s upcoming third season in a major (and rather familiar) recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Hurst, who co-starred as Opie during Sons‘ first five seasons, will play Chick Hogan, a badass ex-con and with an intelligent, dark and menacing quality. He owns a motorbike shop (ha!), but gets his money running an illegal firearms business from his property nearby Dylan’s new farm.
I’m told he will lock horns with Dylan’s uncle father Caleb — played by (ha!) Hurst’s former Sons colleague Kenny Johnson.
Since leaving Sons, Hurst guest-starred on Law & Order: SVU and was a regular on TNT’s short-lived King & Maxwell.
Bates Motel reopens in March 2015.
