Sons of Anarchy Season 5 – Amputee Gets Recurring Role
There’s something indescribably uplifting about the story of a man who almost lost everything only to return and reclaim what was his. The story I’m referring to is that of BMX biker Kurt Yaeger, who was in a terrible motorcycle accident in San Francisco six years ago. He survived with multiple internal injuries and a severe leg injury that led to its amputation below the knee. Yaeger was in the hospital for four months recovering and spent another year in bed. Time, effort, and 28 surgeries put Yaeger on the path to healing and being able to once again ride a bike. Thanks to magnetic pedals and a bit of homemade engineering to the outsol of an etnies show, Yaeger has been able to return to BMX biking. Not only that, but he became an actor and landed himself a role on Season 5 of Sons of Anarchy.
I cannot begin to explain how impressed I am with Yaeger. For him to bounce back the way he has is beyond praise worthy. It’s not every day you hear stories that are this heart warming. And to use his disability to land movie roles is both brave and smart. Yaeger has appeared in Charlie Wilson’s War, Knight Fight, and Dolphin Tale, with his latest venture into acting as Greg the Peg in SOA. According to ESPN, the character will be recurring through out Season 5
Yaeger’s prosthetic leg will be incorporated into the Greg character, which will be a lot cheaper for production. Not having to digitally take someone’s real leg out is always a plus. I’m excited to see Yaeger’s career gain some traction from here on out. Hopefully now that production of SOA has wrapped, Yaeger will be able to snag bigger and bigger roles. And they don’t all have to be for characters missing a leg either. I hope to one day see Yaeger in a starring role, whether in movie or a television series, playing a two-legged person.
