Who has signed on for The Batman? One of the most iconic actors from Sons of Anarchy joins the alternate universe of DC Comics.
A Sons of Anarchy legend has teamed up with The Batman. Theo Rossi, actor from the famous biker television series, has arrived in Gotham City to play a “recurring and key role” in the series The Penguin produced by Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Studios for HBO Max. Great news!
According to information from Deadline, The Penguin creative team is keeping the role of the former Sons of Anarchy actor under wraps for now. The star has joined Colin Farrell, who reprises his role as Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot / The Penguin in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Cristin Milioti from How I Met Your Mother also stars as Sofia Falcone, the daughter of late crime boss Carmine Falcone. The latter is characterized by John Turturro. Rhenzy Happy, from the series Marvel from Runaways, is also attached to the series in a starring role believed to be Cobblepot’s personal chauffeur.
What can we expect from The Rossi in ‘El Pingüino’
Theo Rossi, known for his role in Sons of Anarchy, most recently appeared in John Patton Ford’s Emily the Hustler as the love interest of co-star Aubrey Plaza. A role that earned him a nomination for Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Performance. The new signing of The Batman has also had prominent roles in Luke Cage and Army of the Dead, both Netflix products. And soon he will be able to be seen in the thriller Carry On, by Jaume Collet-Serra, director of Black Adam. A project that also features Jason Bateman, Taron Egerton and Sofia Carson.
The Sons of Anarchy actor hired for The Batman spin-off comes shortly after Clancy Brown’s as Gotham City mob boss Salvatore Maroni. Brown is known for his work as Mr. Krabs in SpongeBob SquarePants and as Lex Luthor in various DC animation projects. But he’s also established an accomplished live-action resume that includes perhaps his most recognizable role as prison guard Byron Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption (1994). It looks like Brown will be on the opposite side of a jail cell this time around, as the Batman saga revealed that Maroni was previously arrested after being set up by Carmine Falcone during the biggest drug bust in GCPD history. .
