Don’t cry for Juice from Sons of Anarchy; actor Theo Rossi, who played Juice on the action series, is now scheduled for a Law & Order: SVU appearance. The FX biker series just wrapped its season five finale on the airwaves, but you can see Rossi on SVU‘s upcoming January 2nd episode on NBC.
TV Line said Rossi would play Enrique Rodriguez, a “working-class Catholic” who learns his sister was a victim of a church “cover-up”. Like any good brother would, Rodriguez takes an active role in trying to get justice for his sister.
Boomtron faithful know this guest appearance lines up with the upcoming appearance of True Blood’s Denis O’Hare. O’Hare will play a priest in the same episode. His character had better watch his back.
