Battlestar Galactica
vet Edward James Olmos has signed on to star in the in-the-works offshoot, tentatively titled Mayans MC. Set in a post Jax Teller world, the project — which thus far has received a pilot order — centers on EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali/Mexi border who struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel, and his need for respect from the women he loves.

Olmos will play the Reyes family’s once-strong patriarch Felipe, who, after years of being crushed by bullets and hard labor, struggles to keep his past buried and lead his sons down a lawful, righteous path.

Sons of Anarchy fans will recall the Mayans’ ongoing presence in the original series — a meddlesome force to be reckoned with, particularly for the men of SAMCRO. Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter co-wrote the pilot script with Elgin James, and will also serve as director.
